Question about 2005 Yamaha WR 450 F
Push the kick start through until you get to a hard spot(TDC) then hold the decompresser and kick it just a little more to get it past top dead centre. release the lever
then one good kick, do not touch the throttle, even hold the bar not the grip so your not tempted to give it a squirt.
If it also has the hot start lever, or button this is for when the bike is quite hot and it leans out the mixture for starting, activate the lever and start the bike, then release the lever. This also helps if youve had a little lie down and the bike is flooded
what also helps starting is
new spark plug
clean air filter
check valve clearances
a small squirt of upper cylnder lube in the tank
