Its the solinoid. I had the same issue with a bit of water a few years back. A bit of mud get in the solinoid and nothiong happens. Then after a few seconds away it goes. Just pull the starter out, from memory a couple of philips heads hold the cap on the end. give it a good clean. dont spray and wd40 or anything in it. Should just be clean and dry when you refit it. All will be good after that.

Taking it down to the in laws farm this weekend so I’ll put it over the pit and it should be nice and easy to rip apart.
Hopefully that solves the problem.
I'll let you know how i go thanks again.
Troy i used to have an 05 steel frame yz450f 4 speed.
It use to hammer, had no issues with it.
Upgraded to a yz450f 2009 model.
The upgrade was amazing.
Currently in the process of making a metal box like contraption which when i go on long trips will enclose the tub with the tail down.
Means i can have the bike in the back with generator / esky / swag / riding gear etc all in the back without having to worry if my $9.00 net is going to keep it in.
If you’re interested I’ll keep you updated??
Thanks again guys.

one of the reasons the yam used to always have gearbox problems was because the way they used to anneal the gears in the gearbox they were brittle supposedly on the newer ones they have fixed the problem. do they still use 5 titanium valves?
Also back then when i had the yam i was racing enduros alot so the bike always coped a flogging my ktm has only done 2 enduros so it still looks like new lol
