Peter does things differently that's for sure. He had a Scotts Oiler setup on his KLR, but had it dump the oil on top of his cylinder, run down the side of the motor and onto the chain... it worked, but man was it smokey!

I think we are all thinking carb.......could be, but if it's cutting out, could be electrical, take the seat and tank off and take a look at all the connections.

And crap in the bottom of the tank..........have the DRZ submit to a urine test

i think i spotted the problem.
the Clymer manual arrived today and the pic of the mikuni carb clearly shows a tiny coil spring between the retainer plug and the needle. Mine has no such spring,,,but it will soon!

after I ride my bysickle to the store to get beer,,

(hope I don't break down)

4 motorcyles in the past 4 years, and only time I had to give up and take any of them have been to a shop was for a Carburetor problem on my KTM 450. Turns out that spring on the Air/Fuel mixture was missing, idle was way off to compensate, wrong jets and clogged internals. Best $125 I spent on that bike so far. Chasing carb problems suck!

Am guessing carbs cleaned and a new battery will fix the problem.

has a new battery, and the carb is fucking sterile, it's so clean.
You just try to go without your needle retainer spring and see how well you run!
Ima make you ride it when it's ready!

This is for Tequila Girl...

The annual Tequila Festival in Tiujana. Oct 6 thru 13. Costs 6 bux, good for all days. Something like 30 different suppliers of tequila, they typically have 3 or 4 styles each. That is a lot of different tequilas to try, no wonder it lasts for days. And they have good food there too.

And, if you come back over the border on the shuttle bus, which is considered a 'common carrier', the Cali rule on 1liter/person is waived and you can bring back up to $400 worth of hooch on the bus! Prices are usually very reasonable on the MX side of the border, so that is like an easy 2 cases of booze.

Something to think about.
