2014 WR450F starter only starts with cold start

Recommended Posts

Newbie here -  Picked up a 2014 WR450F this weekend. It had sat in a garage not ridden much in 4 years, but it only starts with the cold start open, even after riding over an hour. Is this an adjustment I need to make or should I be looking to replace the battery?

It is a 14, which means it is FI. The injector is likely gummed up and needs cleaned or replaced.

Yep- she kicks over great. Just the e-start is crap. I've read about the issues with the starters, but I'll have the fuel system cleaned out first before swapping parts out. My local shop says they replace the EFI during regular maintenance, so I'm confident she'll eventually pop over consistently!
