I've got an '05 WR 450 and I cannot get the starter to do anything. A month ago I was out riding and when I would hit the starter button it seemed like the battery was going dead. I ended up replacing the battery and my bike started right up. I went on a ride a couple of weeks ago and when I hit the starter button, nada-zip-zilch. I got the bike started just fine with the kick starter but it never would do anything when I hit the starter button. I've got a new battery in it, I've checked the fuses and they're good, I replaced the starter button and while I was at it replaced the kill switch. I'm pretty retarded at checking things like relays, etc. so I haven't looked at anything like that. I was told by another WR owner that it's most likely the starter itself since his was doing the same thing. Any words of wisdom before I plunk down big dollars for a new starter?
