08 Not Starting Very Well

Recommended Posts

My 08 runs great starts great from cold first or second kick , but when hot its not very good , it does start but takes a good few kicks to get going . Should I be looking at valve clearances ? If so what should they be for an 08 as I do not have a manual .

i just got my 08 rmz 450!! I haven't figured out the starting on it yet at all!

but here's the valve specs from the manual:

valve clearance when cold:

standard: intake 0.09 -0.16 mm (0.004 - 0.006 in)

exhaust 0.17 -0.24 mm (0.007 -0.009 in)

Hope it helps!

Near the throttle there should be a hot start lever. You could use it while starting hot.
