2009 CRF450R kill switch short

Recommended Posts

My bark busters rotated and smashed the kill switch wires on the top of the forks. Now I can't get the bike to start. I replaced the kill switch pigtail and still nothing. It typically kicks really easy and usually has fired on the fourth kick religiously. I replaced the spark plug and checked to make sure it has spark and it does.


This makes me think it's a fuel delivery issue. Not sure if the short in the kill switch would have fried something in the EFI system, or maybe the computer itself. Just to be sure, I even checked the valve clearances and they look good.


Any thoughts are appreciated!
