shuting off when riding!!!

When Riding my bike shuts off for no reason WHY???

Kiger 03 crf 450

Clases 250B..4 stroke...Open B/C

Try turning the fuel petcock on.

Please give more data. Is it when its idling, WFO, a mixture of both, when your whipping it flat? let us know exactly how its happening and we'll be glad to help.

Sounds electric!

Check your idle

Joe

I had the same problem, my bike would stall due to the low idle, it seems that it is low on a lot of the 03 450s, just turn up the idle a bit.

It thappens on '02's as well. Your idle should be set higher. It will stop the condition you describe.

You race, and ride in GNCC's yet you can't figure this out...kinda hard to believe...This is not necessarly an idle-ing problem, this sounds like a jetting problem, you are probably running to rich.

Could also be electric wires shorting somewhere...If you are running GNCCs chances are it is a bit wet too, so strip your bike and tape all your electrics and make sure there is no unwanted contact...DINGA

I noticed you mentioned sometimes when you are turning! Try checking the kill switch wires. Make sure there is a little slack under the tank and that whan you are turning the bars it isnt pulling on the wires.

Fastest 1,

I agree, that is a good place to start (electrical).

      I need recommendations on Honda dealers with good Mechanics in Western Washington. I am in Puyallup but will drive for peace of mind. I have never had a dealer do major work on any of my dirt bikes. But long story short I am on a 15 CRF450R and it needs the 5th gear recall done. Any and all info is much appreciated!

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      Nicholas, 
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
       
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
