Thanks for the input...

Thanks for the input. I think I'll try and replace the O-ring first, is it worthwhile getting a Viton one (size?)?

I'll also check the valve clearances, just in case....

If that fails I'll replace the needle/seat; hopefully one or other of these will sort it out.

Cheers,

Adrian

I looked up OPAL fuel. I would have never in a thousand years guess that anyone would want to inhale gasoline fumes to get mental relief from daily boredom. Damn don't they grow marijuana there?

Did about 350 miles with them yesterday...didn't notice them at all until I had to fix a flat...Then I really appreciated the expanded tool kit I was carrying

Speaking of flat tires, popped both of mine this last Friday.

Kid, ya got it backwards, low octane fires more easily than high octane, hence the problem with knocking under high pressure. I'll go with stuck float valve 'til a more precise diagnosis is come upon.

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.

How much air pressure were you running ?

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?!

TNX,

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