Re: DRZ experts inside

Doug descended upon my shop today, laid hands upon the DRZ and it sprang to life.

It's a festivus miracle.

Re: DRZ experts inside

I forgot to see if I had one of those Rubber Doo Dads. I will look tomorrow and send a text, sir. I had fun, thanks for the chains, worked perfectly. I might can use my trailer now!

Re: DRZ experts inside

P.S. Mitch's bike had a 132.5 main jet in the stock carb. My old one had a 142.5 (stock size) and I included the Ti fuel screw as well. That thing was awesome. Ran well, nice scooter, I hope I don't buy it....

Re: DRZ experts inside

Runs even better once the vacuum port was blocked off.



Gas in the oil? Check.

Not yet ... too cold to work and too much gas fume to run the heater.

Cleaned up a bit last night and never found the pad.
$2 each from Rocky Mountain ... moving on ... be here Wednesday.

The head is full of gas again.

Of course not ...

I asked Doug if we should ... begged him to replace those components.
He said "Hold my beer and watch this!"

Re: DRZ experts inside

Good one Mitch. He does have a beautiful new one I talked him out of installing while we had it upside down there on the bench. Of course, he shouldn't have listened to me. And, it wasn't leaking when I left.

Re: DRZ experts inside

So the motor was hydrolocked with gas.

Pulled the plug and soaked everything in the general vicinity with fuel.

Decided to brave the icy conditions and retrieve a new spark plug from the local parts store.

Carb coming off and proper repairs will take place.

Re: DRZ experts inside

Should I put a small amount of oil in the cylinder and crank it over with no plug to mitigate washed cylinder walls?
