Hot Start seized!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Just got a s/hand 04 crf450. Went to use the hot start today and it is siezed into the carb!!! Anybody else have this problem? Guy I bought it of said he has never used it. now I know why. Any ideas how to get the plunger out?

From memory it is a brass bush with plastic inner. Is this correct/ I'm thinking I will have to cut the cable and drill out. I think if I try heat on the carb body it might just swell the brass as well. any ideas?

Thanks

I would try spraying penetrating oil down in there and letting it sit overnight. Then come back and try to pull it out by the cable, and maybe try push it inward with a small screwdriver just to get it to break loose. I would try to avoid drilling it myself. Don't you hate picking up after the previous owner? :)
