Help-Bike won't start

Recommended Posts

My 04 TE 450 won't start after having the Hall's mod done to my Mikuni and installing a rekluse clutch. It fires up, but only runs for 1 or 2 seconds before dying. It did this about a dozen times before the battery died (Of course!).

Before I start ripping her apart, does anyone have any ideas?

Will this happen if I have the carb vent hoses routed incorrectly?

Gas turned on? Fuel come out of the float overflow if you lay the bike over? Make sure you have a good fuel supply before ripping into things and then from there it's just investigation. Crimped fuel lines might cause that but i would look for fuel delivery issues.

On the subject of fuel starvation, my te250 was doing similar things this weekend, The problem went away when I took off the fuel cap- so I blew out the fuel cap with compressed air (from the hose side) and saw vapor for a second (fuel or water) then it cleared. The bike now runs perfectly... Something to check. I saw a fellow TTer out riding this weekend that had the same problem.
