Is your bike starting at all by kicking? Your bike can be flooded right now. Clear out the gas in the engine and carb by turning the gas off, draining the bowl, and kick the bike over multiple times with your hand on the kill switch and full throttle.

Check your battery connection for loose or no connection

Checj your fuses

kick starts 1st kick battery connection looks O K .

Did you check the fuse inside the airbox, 5 amp I believe

15 amp fuse check out , battery 13 volts check plugs and connection all looks good.

If you still have your stock clutch interlock I'd check that. Then remove it.

How do I remove it ?

Do you just jump it out

Two wires are running to the clutch perch, which has the 'interupt' switch inside it. Your goal is to connect those two wires together. Do it on the bar, or follow the wires back behind the headlight and splice them there.

Also, check your kill switch. They are fragile.

I agree cut and splice them behind your headlight. Get it out of the way.

On a buddies 06 crf 450x he had a couple wires behind the headlight that rubbed against the frame, rubbed the wires bare, and shorted out the fuse (located behind the side plate by airbox). We just cut out the affected section and popped in a new fuse and everything worked.

Jumping out clutch switch is a good idea , but wood that stop it from kick starting ?

Doing mother day thing , well try working on it later

Frayed wires to your starter button definately would still alow u to kick start it.

Yeah, it should still kick. Probably loose battery terminals, or a loose harness.

I had the same problem. Blew that fuse. Fixed the wire replaced the fuse.

I bypass the clutch interlock . Did not help but a must do any way .As krannie said check harness going through plugs . I think it was the big plug cover with plastic under the side plate . It started up :confused: thank you everone for good ideas .krannie what can i say If you open a repair shop call me . :thumbsup:

No. But, if you do make a splice, solder it, and seal it in Shrink Tubing. Don't use a 'solder-less (crimp) connector' because it will corrode in short order. Even if you use a 'corrosion free' version.
