07 450f running poorly after flywheel weight installation

Recommended Posts

I recently installed a flywheel weight on my bike. Prior to this it had been laid on its side for a few days. After the installation i stood the bike up and kicked it over. Would not start with the choke on. When i managed to start it with the choke off it was running poorly and would die on its own frequently. Anyone know what the problem is?

Drain the carb bowl, just to be sure there is fresh fuel in there and no engine oil or filter oil.  Then go for a slow ride on it. Cruise around and warm it right up. then give it a few little bursts.

 

Did you strike the flywheel with a hammer to punch any threads?  Magnets sometimes don't like that.

Sounds like a carb. problem.  Pilot or hot start circuit.
