Question about 2006 Yamaha yZ 450 F
Hi, Gregg love that name and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

With setting the cams it can only be right or wrong there is not really any way to be a little out unless the cam chain itself is severely over stretched...
set (I) mark on fly wheel to be visible within the marks on the inspection hole of ignition cover (always a good idea to cross reference TDC by probing the piston through spark plug hole as I have seen many flywheels shear their woodruff keys and give incorrect TDC readings) any how, once at TDC set the cams ( lobes facing outwards with the dots on each cam aligning best you can with the head. with your finger take out the slack of the cam chain through the tensioner hole and double check all dots and (I) mark on fly wheel still all line up correctly - if so then your good to button all back up... Don't be alarmed if takes a few goes it's perfectly normal to have at least couple of attempts to get all correct.
You want your valve clearances to be 0.20 on the exhaust and 0.10 on the intake side a tiny amount bigger gap is kind of OK but never smaller or you will do damage !
Backfire although can be caused by timing out or valves clearance incorrect in my experience is nearly always due to lean on fuel, could be worth double checking your pilot jet and circuit is all clear - compressed air cleaning them is best or stick new pilot jet in to be fool proof ! and air clean the hole the pilot jet screws into..
Happy to elaborate on any points if needs be, just let me know
good luck regards Jamie
