Default WR450 Not starting

     

I am new to working on the guts of a bike this big. I have done all other maintenance. 1st I let the bike sit with fuel .... I know DUMB. I got it started a month ago when I was going to sell it but now that I want to go ride. SUX. I have new fuel and cleaned the Carb with carb cleaner (it wasnt too bad) and put it back together.... nothing. low hours/ and the battery is dead. kicking was the only way to start since I bought it.

Start with the 3 main things
1. spark - have you checked this?
2. fuel - are you getting it
3. compression

if you have all of those things...... Check the valves..... If they are out of adjustment you can kick it until your blue in the face.

Thanks
Scott

I have it,,,,Die just need a hearing aid. Afterall, it is a low hours rig, and he has cleaned the carburetor!! it must be running and he just can't hear it!!

I never give up on an engine, but sometimes I do on owner/mechanics.
