Zacatecas, Mexico
 
I am having carburetor problems and need a good mechanic. My bike is an '09 DR 650 and is currently not running. I am in Zacatecas, Mexico. My email is jrstaedler@gmail.com, and Mexican phone # is 612-153-8582. I don't speak Spanish. The bike was delivered to the Suzuki dealer on Saturday. I was told to return at 9am today (which is did) and was then told that the mechanic may be in later today. If someone knows of a good mechanic in the area, I'd appreciate receiving his contact info.

Jim

carb
 
I used to have that problem too. Fiddle with it till it works and don't know why it works. Finally threw it away and got my hands on a flat slide carb. Problem solved ! buena suerte !

What is it doing or not doing, besides not running ? Will it run if you hold the throttle open ?

I seen your other thread http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=849711


The mechanic said the spark was good, but this may be worth checking.

Look on page 6-20 in manual.

IT shows the CDI box and what wires to check on the plug in.


PLUG#1: BLACK wire and WHITE wire are listed as the "Power Source coil". This is the coil in the engine to supply power to the Coil connected to the spark plugs.

CHeck that there is 0.1-0.2ohm resistance between the 2 wires.



The BLUE and GREEN wires are the "Pick-up coil" wires, this reading should be 170-256ohms


Would guess a pick up coil is more likely to fail than the CDI. Its happened to a few folks on here. No spark no start.

Here is a link to an aftermarket pick up coil that requires cutting and soldering.

No affiliation, and there is probably other sources too.

Burt,
Thanks for your advise and offers to help...they're much appreciated. One question for now...is it possible to have spark with a bad pick up coil?

Hey Jim, did you get the text I sent today about the carb idle screw?

I believe it would be a no spark situation. Never heard of one intermittently working.

Good luck, and we will be watching for the final solution....

Yes, got it! Glad to know that the TM40 is set up with one from ProCycle.
