Wr 400 cuts out during ride and wont start for another 10 mins

Hi there,

I have a 2000 wr 400 and I would be riding for about 40 minutes and it will just cut out, i try to start it but it wont so I leave it for 10 minutes and it starts up fine, sometimes this can happen when i just go out on the bike so will cut out after 5 minutes, can someone help me pls?

I would do a Stator test, both cold and hot, following the service manual


Your symptoms are that of fuel starvation (bad gas cap vent) or Electrical heat 'open circuit' on the stator, IMHO.

Hi thanks for the reply do you know how to do the stator test because I cant find anything about it

You need to download a service manual
