Put a WR lighting system on and now my bike turned into a hard starter.

Recommended Posts

Ok so I got my conversion done all WR wiring and lighting. Now my bike turned from a reliable 2 throttle pump 1 kick bike. Tonight I went to ride it (50 degree's) Pumped the throttle kicked it like 6 times, nothing. Tried choke, nothing so I tried hot start and throttle wide open, nothing. Pumped the throttle like 9 times popped once, then thinking I flooded it tried the hotstart, still nothing then I tried choking and pumping throttle, nothing. So I tired throttle open again forgetting that the choke was on and it fired up. Then it died, so I pumped it again and then help it wide open with the choke on and it fired up and I was able to keep it running.

I'm pretty sure it's carb. But are the timing curve's different enough to cause issues?

I need to go through the carb but what could be causing this issue?

My bike is an 06 YZ450

All Wr stuff, CDI, IGN coil, completely new wiring, battery, WR Ign switch, the whole shabang. The battery is charged and working fine.

It's the one that my YZ has had in it forever. Should I put a new one in it? it's still in great shape externally. Look's great.

get a Irridium sparkplug, should fix it right up, best spark plugs you can buy, and they do make a difference,..... they arent really that much money any how ha ha like 12$ for 2, but they are garanteed for 150k + miles or somethin, they have ALOT stronger spark, if you google about them you will get the full details of them, they are 100% worth the money from my experience and i run only them in my engines

Ok I think that my pilot was the problem, when it was hooked up behind my truck yesterday I noticed that the pilot screw wasn't quite where it was supposed to be. I screwed it back in and it seem's better. But I will grab a new plug and throw in it because it probably need's it. It sure is popping mid range and high range more than it used to so I'm going to throw in a bigger main. see what I get. I also noticed gray's post on another thread about cleaning the accelerator pump bowl mine was sitting for a while during the rebuild so I think I'll look at that too.

Thanks for the help

Dustin

      Selling an FMF Power Core 4 exhaust system off my 450FX. Exhaust has 80 hours and is 100% functional. This will also fit the 14-15 YZ450F and 16-18 Wr450F. If needed I can also include new muffler packing although it does not need it.

      I have a 2008 YZ450F with a stock header pipe and Pro Circuit T-4 Slip-On Exhaust. I'm 99% sure the slip on is shot because its loud as hell and when I take it off and shake it it rattles. I would repack it but the screws are all stripped ect.
      Anyways I've gone over the carb multiple times and I've got it running pretty well. The only issue I have with the bike is that it sputters and pops around 1/2 throttle when I hold it there. When I give it full throttle from any RPM it runs great or when I give it about 3/4 throttle it spins up like a top to redline.
      Initially the popping and sputtering was way worse I made the situation better by moving the pilot jet up in a few sizes from a 45 (stock) to a 62. The issue has gotten way better since then but I'm not super sure what to do from here. Should I keep moving my pilot jet up in size because that's a pretty large jump right? I tried changing my needle clip position but that didn't help much if anything it just made starting it worse and little to no impact on the ride.
      Any input on this would be helpful. I don't want to buy other slip on. Also as for the rest of the carb I'm very sure everything else in it is what it needs to be at. I've replaced all the gaskets and O-rings cleaned all the jets, valve holes ect. fixed the accelerator pump timing. I just thinks its strange that my pilot jet size is going so far from the stock 45, but all symptoms point to the bike running lean.

      Hi I was wondering if y’all have been using a 450 on your YZ250F?

      Excel Takasago 17x3 front and 17x5 rear supermoto wheels with Metzler M3 tires in very lightly used condition. Less than 200 miles total on the setup. Warp 9 spokes. Rear has a Talon hub with 45T Sunstar steel sprocket and OEM rear disc, and front has a polished OEM Yamaha WR450F hub (for the stock speedometer), with a Motomaster 320mm disc. Included is a DID gold o-ring chain, 14T front sprocket, and front brake caliper adapter for a truly turn key setup. Everything is in excellent condition, not a single scratch on these wheels. Came off my '11 WR450F, but will fit many different Yamahas with 20mm front and 22mm rear axles. Asking $1400 plus shipping.
      **Will be driving up near Atlanta, then to northern Louisiana, OKC, and down through Dallas and Houston, TX soon -- can meet or deliver if in the area (Aug 31-Sep 9)**
