3.2 IMS tank, The guys at IMS were really helpful and its a great tank.

Thanks for the compliment, the bike was fresh off a full build so it was new.

The triple clamps were also designed for that model of bike and required me to mill 3mm off of the top bearing preload nut. I also welded on a better steering stop because the stock DRZ stop is kinda cheaply done.

They use the stock DRZ/RM 250 neck bearings and of course required Trailtech and Baja Designs items to mount the Vapor Dash, and Headlight. The fork guards are from UFO and required the plastic guard guides to be bored out because UFO missed the mark on a properly fitting guide. ( They designed the guide to fit the 47mm Showas found on the RM 125) which mounted above the flange rather than around the flange like the 46mm Kayabas used.

The brakes all bolt on, a Zeta gear canceller was used to replace speedo gear assy, Zeta brake line holder, and axle /wheel bolts up properly as is.

Stock steer stop VS mine after mods.

I also had the machine shop rework the factory oil tank weld job because they were sloppy from the factory.

Motor and frame are lumps. You could spend a fortune and still be in the 295 range.... Unfortunate.

So... I have issues (I know, this is not Dr. Phil) with my DRZ. Went out to start her up this weekeknd and she tried to turn over, but stopped abruptly. I assumed the battery had atrophied, which was why I went to start her in the first place. but after charging she didi the same thing, so I did a little research, and I think I have had a fuel petock leak, and that maybe the cylinder is full of gas. I already have a plan i place to replace the petcock, and check the floats in the carb, but I have a dumb question, (the main kind I seem to ask ) how do I get the top end drained to get her started again? Thanks for the help.

A good friend will take you trail riding, an ADV friend will double back and say, "how did you get down there?"

In the absence of a decomp ...pull the spark plug out & turn it over.

Ive been in that boat... I wouldnt use the electric start to clear the cylinder. Pull the plug, put her in 3rd maybe 4th, and push her up and down the driveway a few times. Get ready for a fuel geyser. You are going to have fuel in the case too, so drain it and put some fresh oil in there while you are at it. This happened to me over the summer, i also mistook the situation for a weak/dead battery. I ended up cranking the thing so many times that i hydraulically bent an intake valve. I felt like an idiot, but it gave me an excuse to order a 440 kit while I had the head off, and install the thinner base gasket (as the E model is built) for higher compression.

Let us know how it goes, if you still cant get it to start after everything send me a PM. The whole ordeal is still fresh in my mind and I can probably help you diagnose any issue.

Then replace your petcock with one from a Yamaha 660 Raptor ATV....manual so you can turn it off.

I'd like to try and avoid an issue like BEEF706. I have a 2011, so would the Raptor 660 petcock work as well on my bike.

I'm new to the DRZ world, as you can see by my avatar a KLR, now gone.

Thanks
