'11 450 EXC Check your wires!!

Recommended Posts

Just pulled the battery for the for the winter and thank god I stopped riding when I did + cable was almost all the way worn through where it was rubbing on the back of the frame. Also keep an eye on the wires behind the headlight as mine were rubbing on the steering head.:ride:

Good thing this is an incredible bike otherwise I might complain a lot more about the wire routing. 👍

Thats why when i buy a new bike before i ever ride it i check everything.I put eletrical grease and zip tyes on all connections,tourque,locktite all bolts,greese all bearings and pivot points etc.Iam allways itching to ride but i have had problems before with a new bike the way they assemble them.I bought a new 200 in 1999.Came home unloaded it and rode down my driveway and back and lost 2 bolts so from than on i work on it before riding it.

That's good advise. I lost the stock aluminum steering cap bolt on my '08.
