Question about 2005 Honda CRF 450 X

2005 Honda crf450x cold starting

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

I have replaced the battery and ignition unit on my 1985 suzuki 700 es, the bike really sounds like it wants to run but wont start. Starter turns but engine won't kick over. Any Ideas?


Is it getting gas properly? Has it been sitting around for a while? The carburators on motorcycles need to cleaned after sitting around. The jet could be full of varnish. Are you getting spark for sure? Pull out a spark plug and put it in the wire, crank it over and see if the spark plug sparks. When you pulled the plug was it wet at all with gas? Then it probably isn't getting gas right. Just some of the things you could try.

The wiring should not be getting hot, but if you are trying to get the engine running with the starter motor and it is not turning the engine over, you need to investigate why the engine is not turning. Put the shifter in top gear and try to push the bike (key off) to see if the engine is free to turn. If ok, remove the starter motor and check the drive to the engine. It may be a broken chain or other interference trouble. Try running the starter with the chain disconnected. If it won't turn (make sure the body of the motor is touching the engine), the motor may be jammed in some way. The other possibility is that the wiring to the starter is grounding out somewhere--maybe the starter solenoid. Hope this helps!

Hi, I bought a used motorcycle (hero honda splendor+), I dont know anything about choke lever. Please tell me what is the use of it ? Advantages & disadvantages of it? And finally which position...


How to use your choke correctly. The choke is only to be used for starting a cold engine. If it is a lever, usually you pull it up for on , and push it down for off. look for some type off arrow, or up & down. To start your cold engine, turn on fuel tap, give full choke, turn key on and press starter or kick start, it is very important that you do not use the throttle while starting with the choke, just turn the key on, and press the starter with full ckoke, and no throttle. Once the bike fires and starts, turn down the choke a little and find a idle, after a few minits, you can turn off the choke and ride off. The use off the choke is only for starting a cold engine.
