Hello and help for a new '09 FE 450 owner

Hi all,

First of all I'd like to say a quick hello, very new to the enduro world and picked up my first bike last month, an '09 FE 450 with 90 hours on. I bought the bike from Ireland and it was described as "ready to wheelie" out of the van, unfortunately upon delivery that wasn't the case, weep from the water pump assy hole, damaged water pump rotor so I set about replacing the entire water pump assembly.

I've now completed this and in the process had the magneto cover aqua cleaned along with the water pump cover and clutch cover however, now the bikes back together it won't start, see video below



any ideas where the issue may lie?

Many thanks in advance and pics of the damaged rotor etc attached for your viewing pleasure

Nick.

Nearly 100 views and no reply, is this the newb "another won't start thread" shun I'm new to enduro/dirt bikes and motorbikes in general so was after some guidance, having another look at it today so hopefully I can find out why she won't fire, all the fuses look ok, ive checked all the electrical connections and all seem tight and connected, next is checking for spark and fuel.

I think you know this but if you the bike any throttle it won’t start. Now that being said if doesn’t start one to check is the TPS. Stop switch Ground/earth

Doesn’t sound like there is compression. That or the torque limiter is slipping.

What have you checked? You haven’t given any indication that you have checked anything but want others to solve the issue. Get into mate and start with the basic checks.

Yeah, I think I probably panic posted Alan, as I say very new to bikes so it's all new to me, working on it tonight with a friend so will report back!
Thanks from Alan

Yeah mate I'm in the same boat, just bought a 2011 fe570 and can't ride until my auto decompression cam gets here, but do you have any FI codes flashing? Pull the spark plug boot and put any spark plug in it, hold it against an engine bolt see if you're getting spark, if you have a compressor checker test your compression

Hi Guys, firstly thanks for the replies, the bikes all working now and flying, amazed on the most aggressive setting I can wheelie in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. Awesome bike!!! I haven't stopped smiling.

The issue was caused by not using a washer on one of the rhs engine case bolts, crazy but true, pinched the case enough to stop the water pump impeller from spinning.

Tony, the 450 is fast so I dread to think what the 570's like! you'll be grinning from ear to ear.

All the best,

Nick.
