When your 05 CRF450R starts running really bad.....

Recommended Posts

My 05 started running really bad between 1/4 and 3/4 throttle. Great at full throttle and right when carb opened. I did the carb clean on it and noticed something odd. My needle was worn. I mean worn on one side where it had rubbed the nozzle. New needle and nozzle and it is like new again. Never had a bike eat a needle before, but it can be a major problem.

If your bike has problems holding a decent idle and will not hold a steady RPM at 1/4 throttle, check the needle and see if it is worn on one side. Thought I would relate my issue as some folks may also have seen this before.
