I just got a '04 yfz450 and was riding at down the rode and it just shut off. I tried starting it back and it tried to turn over real slow. Then every time i hit the start button now it just clicks under the seat. We roll started it and it started up but it shut off after a couple mins. of riding. I checked the batt. and its good. Help me here, What is wrong with my quad?? I own paid 800 dollars for it so i got my moneys worth lol.

the click you are hearing is the starter relay when it clicks its not getting enough power try a new battery first it might have volts but it might not be able to produce the right amount under a load

I hate to sund like doom and gloom, but that is what the motor sounds like when the rod bearing goes bad. Starter just clicks because the motor is locked up. Check into it a little more.

Good luck.

So, do you all think i got a good deal on it??? 800 dollars for a 04 YFZ its the black one.[/b]
I think in the end you will have a good deal. You will spend another $700 to $900 into rebuilding the motor and make sure you do my oil upgrade or this could happen again. In the end you have $1500-1700 into it and you know your motor will last for many years if maintained good.

We just pulled the head off, it is the crank bearing. Thank you all for your help. We are still looking for nerf bars and such for the new 09 YFZ450R. If anyone knows of any sites that carry them please let us know. Thank you
