Question about 2005 Honda CRF 450 X
Starter will not turn engine over if bike has been sitting over night. I must kick start it, run it a while and then the starter is able to tun it over. Bike has been checked by dealer, new battery, new stator, regulator checked ok. Is this typical for this model?
Doulbe check the grounds, & you might need to add and extra ground wire to the bike, closer to the starter. This should help. There is a valve that release the compression when you kick it off.You might see if you can pull this release the compression valve while pushing the start button????

You need to adjust your decompression valve. You have to pull your tank off and your valve cover. The manual shows the cam position you need to be at to adjust the clearence. The clearence is .014
