f, frikken f'ing,f'd up f'fer

ran great for a while!
stutters and spits when it's warmed up real good.
Love/Hate,,currently HATE!
LIST ALL THE BAD WORDS YOU KNOW, THEN ADD,," FRIKKEN drz", AT THE END!

Rode to the store further away to get sour cream for the antelope stroganoff I'm building,,left the store all of 10 blocks away, and began to wonder if I'd have to push it home!?!

I hate that feeling!
fugger better smarten up!,,or,,

for sale soon!

(Note) I am a machinist by trade, NOT a mechanic! Air, spark, and fuel I kinda understand,,you have to have all 3.
I can make a gizmo and a whatzzit to fit a forward beamish plate on yer transmogrifyer, just don't ask me to install or adjust it,,I am mechanically a bag of wet sand!
why are there wires going to a carb onna bike? it's a freeking carb, not fool injection! Grrrr!
If it was an old Chevy pickup, I'd put a small Holley on it and be done!
Take it apart and try this,,put it all back together to find that it still won't work!
I'll go thru that trial about 3 times before I toss a grenade under the skidplate, and we are already at try #2.5! I'm clearly not cut out for this type of work, I'm not good at it, and I hate it! one hinges upon the other I suspect, joined together with a firm bond of 'lack of understanding'.

everything but the KLR is for sale, but what would I buy?,,another KLR? nuthin else seems to work so well with so little maintain type effort. I don't wanna work on them, I wanna RIDE them!
I don't mind basic maint. stuff, but I do not want to tear down a bike completely every time I want to go to the store for sour cream, just to try to adjust a frikken carburetor that I know nothing about!DAMN!
Gotta go now,,about time to test the antelope delight that's in the back room! fuck suzuki!,,there, I said it!

Don't feel bad... I had to push my little bike from the yard into the garage... because I left the key inside

Didja check the vent lines? seriously... Did you open the gas tank to see if it relieved pressure?

It has to be something simple... like a replacement pumper carb for a few hundy... or a plugged vent line....

Hang in there.

not a drz problem,,
a mik-coo-knee problem, I'm guessing.
but that's just it,,I'm guessing!
If my buddy Dennis,RIP,,(of "Dr.D" fame) were still alive, he'd fix it!
He was a true blue MECHANIC, ran the Oregon Mobile Tune work van for years.He could make anything run!,,ANYTHING!,,even steam engines,,miss you buddy!

I got a number I can call. It'll work out one way or another, fix it, sell it, buy another carb, or ride it as is and have it fail just after you realize that the lane you just pulled into is now being occupied by the SUV that just changed lanes, and you got no escape power on the throttle cuz the little rice sucker falls on it's fucking face when you gas it!,,so you DIE!,,that might work for me too, but I got a few more things I want to do first,,and then there's the chores,,seems there's never enough time for ALL of it,,I Shirley don't need to add dismantling a frikken KLX 400 to my daily routine!,,,(if it had Kawi badges onnit,,it wouldn't act like this!)

If it was green,,I'd park it close to the KLR,,and there would be bonding, and familial connection, and the little pup would lern from the old dog,,might even end up with a litter of mini-bikes zinging around the shop!

That is not clean nor a one owner... Pass...

Didja check the friggin vents yet? Am I typing to hear the tactile feedback from this friggin keyboard? Do I needta come look for gas leaks with a match?

Sheesh... Maybe you need a Washington Discover PAss to "discover" the problem?

Maybe it is just jealous and needs a hit of that gulch dust from off the floor... take a handful, toss it in the air box and make it choke for real...

Kids these days....

Check yer pet cock (tee hee).

When I was riding alongside Mr. Cob and his Australian Urinal with the sidecar on the wrong side, he had trouble giving it gas (I won't say go faster because Urinals don't go faster they just make more noise). It would blow black smoke and pop and fizz out of the right jug. He finally ran the tank low enough to pull his pet cock out and it had big flakes of paint in it. Urinal thinks it's real purty to put paint inside the filler, the kind of paint that comes off in nice big hunks as soon as E10 touches it.

Junk in the fuel filter? Junk in the petcock? Or like non-Fisherman says, vacuum hose on the tank that's not letting the air out?

Or put Mikuni between the jaws of a vise and get a pumper.

while you're checking these check the electrical connections at the plug and all the way back to the signal generator end- maybe corrosion? maybe leaking spark at temp?
