I would try to start it again and all I get is a spinning and whining sound from the starter. It is as if the starter is not engaging somehow. A while after it cools down the bike will start agian. Does anyone have any possible answers. Thanks in advance!A lot of the starters are designed so the bendix shaft shears if it sticks to the fly wheel or over torques. If you remove the starter, connect a pair of vice-grips to the bendix gear. Jump the starter with a pair of cables, to get it to activate. The bendix will probably kick out, but not rotate. You should hear the armeture spin. Otherwise, the bendix will kick out, and you'll hear the armeture hum. If that's the case, check to make sure the fly wheel has been ground down, on the side facing the starter. However, you would probably hear grinding not spinning, if that were the problem.,,,

I have a 2004 wrf 450 r it runs fine but after about 5 mins the pipe glows red how can I fix it...


Hi, Anonymous a WR is an Enduro bike designed to run flat out that being said if you are strolling down some scenic trail at a slow pace or letting the bike idle for a few minutes your header pipe will turn cherry red, why you ask? It is not a street bike, it is designed for competition and weight is a major factor all necessary components are of the smallest and lightest design necessary to maintain performance under extreme conditions ie. small radiator and inside frame oil reservoir that doesn't get cooled, the majority of your riding needs to be at high speed.

I have a 1994 honda vt1100 and i have to jump it everytime i ride. i ride for a bit of time. when i turn it off the bike wont start. any ideas please help


Most certainly the starter motor. Either brushes or bushes. Suggest you remove the starter and have it overhauled. The fact that you can jump start it with no problem show it is only in the starting up, hence the starter motor.

Hello so this morning I stopped for gas after a couple miles, turned the key, everything seemed powered, push the starter - all power is gone. Seems like there could be a short in the starter switch?...


The battery may have developed a dead cell.
Try jumping the battery and see if it starts.
If it does, at least one cell in the battery is shot. or the system isn't charging the battery.
Try charging the battery with a plug in charger, and see if it'll start after that.
If it does, ride it a while (but not far, or you may wind up pushing it a long way home)
If the battery is having a harder time starting the bike or won't start it after riding a while, there's something amiss with the charging circuit on the bike.

Alternately if you have a volt meter, check the battery before and after starting the bike. The voltage should be higher than it was originally after starting. If it's not, there's something wrong with the charging circuit.
If it IS higher, but drops significantly after riding, it's the battery, and it'll need to be replaced.

Can you make this bike street legal?


Yes you can. You will need to add a headlight, taillight, turn signals, and change the tires to street tread instead of knobby tires. Then you would need to get a license plate from your local Department of Motor Vehicles. It might be cheaper to just sell the YZ450 and buy a 2004 Yamaha WR 450 enduro. This motorcycle is ready to ride on the street and the dirt. Click on the link below to view the WR450:

Overheat


he always over-heats his 450. Everytime he pulls off the track he has little to no coolant left. He's tried to mess with the carburator but unfortunatly that is not fixing the problem. I'm not sure if he's tried the water wetter yet, but I know he's been thinking about it. Anybody else have any suggestions on how to keep this bike cooled down while riding? It's gotta be a pain in the ass to fill the radiators with coolant everytime you pull off the track...,Adjusting the carb will not solve the problem. It has to be leaking out someplace obviously. Could be a head gasket, could be a bad thermostat or it could be leaking. How hard is he riding it. Also maybe he should try flushing his system out good and trying Engine Ice. Also he could try leaving the Rad cap on the setting where it is slightly off to help release pressure.,,,

Overchargin battery pro


then the same problem occurs again. I tried a new voltage regulator but it is still charging at 15.3 volts at an idle. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated!!! That sounds more like an ignition problem to me - especially if you can fire up the bike a few minutes later. I'm suspecting a heat related problem with the ignition, most likely in the coils or pickup. Not being familiar with the layout of your bike, I can't give you much more help than that.,,,
