I Ride: 2004 fe 450
FE 450 non starting

I recently bought a 2004 FE 450. I was riding yesterday on the highway and the bike backfired a couple of times and cut out. Now it wont start when using electric start or kick start. I have checked main fuses and the boots around carburetor. Any common problems like this, what must i look for

fuel starvation. check the valve clearances which while doing them will allow you to look for anomolies around broken valve springs and rocker arms and even on the 450s; the valve heads falling off!
