Re: gas gas 450 fse 2005 lcd spedo turning off when cold...
I have encountered this on more than one occasion. My experience has been a solder joint on the internal circuit board that is non conducive to cold weather. It has something to do with shrinkage on the board. Although I have only been able to track the exact problem one time, (a small crack in the panel board), all other times I have had to replace the actual unit.

Hi David, for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix or parts inquiry. If necessary transport your vehicle to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. Good luck and have a nice day.
A diode is basically a one way valve. the most likely fault is a short in the fuel pump cabling, or in the fuel pump. A fuse is to protect the hardware from over current, which happens when there is a short to earth or a high resistance coil in the circuit. It could just as easily be a loose cable on the earth.
BACK BLEED THE CLUTCH WITH A SYRINGE AND HOSE ON THE CLUTCH BLEED NIPPLE AND FORCE THE FLUID AND AIR BACKWARD UP TO THE LEVER THIS WILL REMOVE ALL AIR. IF YOU CONTINUE TO GET AIR THEN CHECK ALL CONNECTIONS FOR TIGHTNESS IF OK CHANGE YOUR MASTER CYLINDER.
it could be your starter cluch draging take it off again and check it out or you will burn out the starter trying to start the engine if all is well there put a fuw drops of engine oil into the pot down the spark plug hole and try kicking the bike over without a plug in it till it frees off
100% the issue is too much air. get your carb checked, reduce air intake.
the air intake on the carb about 4 full turns then start the bike. if
it does not want to start open the idle bring it up at least 5 turns.
when it start at a very high rev, start closing the air intake slowly
until you feel and hear you have hit the right spot. adjust your idle
in the process.
NOTE: missfires may also be caused by a fouled out sparks
You can trouble shooting it with these methods..
1.check your spark plug.
2. If it is CDI operated,replace it.
3. If it is still Contact Point operated:Check its timing,and if you sure the timing is good but nothing's happened,try to replace the condenser.
There is nothing mentioned of this in the service manual. The workshop manual says 'clean' when you are reassembling the engine after a complete teardown. I don't do that very often . There's no risk things fall apart when loosing the cover?Yes just undo the plug on the side near gear selector. Be careful with screen as it is plastic and has o-rings to seal it.
Clean with degreaser works best I feel.
Reassemble putting screen fully in first then carefully screwing plug back in.,
anyone know where this is located. Or is there another problem I should be looking at?Temp sensor is located at the left rear of cylinder head. Fan relay is controlled by the EFI computer.
Does your fan run if you hook it up directly to the battery?
To have the fan running by jumping/bypassing the relay you need to have your engine running.
There is a wiring diagram in the '05 user manual,,,
