Such events are what are leading me toward tubeless on my DRZ. Much easier to plug a tire than change a tube.

Thought it might be a good idea to post this here, more concentrated market.

Make me an offer.

2001 question

My 01S has a slight bog or stall of sorts, it happens at about 1/16 maybe 1/8 throttle, the carb has stock jetting and intake/exhaust, carb has been taken apart and put in sonic bath, then put in Pine sol.
A/F screw is set at 3 turns out, there is no snorkle in the air box.

I am thinking that due to its age, i may need to replace the rubber diaphragm, i had a fellow DRZ owner tell me that solved the same issue on his, what say ye.

My 03S has the 3x3 mod and jets done, it runs like a pickle seeder.

I set the front tire up at 21 psi just before the ride, simply felt the rear and called it good. it was probably right around 20psi

Wasca, did you have any trouble fitting the 15 on your E? I just tried and swingarm slide guard won't allow it.

Help?!

Have you had any trouble with Tubliss and minor rim dents?

If I were you I'd remove the carb. Take it apart so that you can get to the needle, washers and black plug. Following the proper sequence of reassembly with the final and important step-make sure the black plug is firmly seated over the grooved end of the needle. It it pops off you will get exactly that symptom. DAMHIK

I certainly like the idea of Tubliss. Their information says for off-road use only. I road my DRZ on a long dirt ride over two weeks. Road riding at highway speeds was inevitable. So for dual sport bikes I wonder.

I just went out and checked, all that part is correct, i am about to come to the conclusion that is is a combination of the below.

1. Stock jetting.
2. Snorkel removed.
3. Aging rubber diaphragm.

Last week i ordered a new diaphragm, i will also do the 3x3 mod as well, when the parts get here.

I beat on mine for a year, in stock form, before doing any modifications. Just start with fresh oil/filter, fresh air filter and fresh tires. Then consider milage and things like chain/sprockets, valve adjustments and everything else that wears out with time and miles.

These bikes are pretty bullet proof. Just make sure you have "case savers" on it. The Thumper Talk ones are fine.
