starting probs

Recommended Posts

i got a 04 crfx.

latley it has trouble starting with the e start, i have to crash start it, it wont even kick over. it also feels like it got no comperssion.

after riding for 10 mins it starts again ok, but anything after 30 min not riding i have to crash start it again, kickin it over is impossiable.

i have had the battey on trickle charg prior to going for a ride (2 days of charging) and the bike gets ridden weekley.so i know the battery is ok.

so whats the advice you guys out their can come up with

Maybe the right intake valve has gone to zero? Just a guess mind you.

Fix it now before you do some real damage.

Oh, one more guess, it will tighten right back up in a couple of rides.

A final guess, you will call Ron Hamp for his coated steel valves in a few weeks.

:thumbsup: Been there - doing that right now!

Check your valves.

1 - wouldn't start

2 - Checked Right intake clearance .002"

3 - Shimmed

4 - Rode for another 4-5 hours - Clearance -> .000"

5 - Bike sitting the garage waiting for my new '07 head and JE piston from RHC
