you're going to start growing webbing between your fingers. How are those rain covers for your boots working out? Are they helping at all?

Hi,

Pretty much stuck now in stewart because of the flood.
People here think it's gonna take at least a couple of days.
Does someone have an idea what i could do.
Just wait or go back and do the loop. Maybe ferry?

Thanks

You could ride up to Dease Lake and then take the side trip road out to Telegraph Creek... This would kill a couple of days so the HWY should be fixed by the time your back to Dease lake... The road to Telegraph Creek is one of the Northern B.C.s best rides...

If the road is still washed out you could hire a helicopter in Dease Lake to hoist your bike and fly you to the north side of the flooded area...

Starting problems klr

Ok, update.

Got back from some pretty hard off road riding in telegraph.
The bike is acting not normal.
If i shut it off i cant get it back on, or sometimes.
It takes a while. You can hear it going over but no ignition.
Changed the sparkpluck it goes a little bit better but still takes a lot of time.
And have to give it a bit of throttle
Any ideas?

Thanks

Have you checked your air filter? If it's dirty they run like crap.

Are you in Dease Lake? If so, keep your eye open for some KLR owners about town and at the gas station and ask them to listen to your bike to help diagnose the problem... In that country every 3 out of 10 bikes is likely a KLR...

A few things come to mind:

-You've been riding a lot in the rain, it is not unusual to get a bit of water in the carb... Try draining the carb float bowl by cracking the drain screw at the bottom of the carb... This will get rid of any water that may be getting pulled into the jets... When you open the screw the fuel will drain out the rubber hose to the bottom of the bike, try catching the fuel {about 50 ml of it} in a clear container to inspect for water pods...

-It may be possible that your bike has sucked some dirt into the pilot circuit
in the carb... If this is the case you may need to take the carb apart and clean out the jets and passageways...

- Go over your wiring from nose to tail and look for any rub spots or bare spots in the shielding... The wires do have a tendency to move around and rub together from vibration, more so if riding rough roads, over time electrical shorts will develop if not taken care of... A wrap on any wear spots with electricians tape makes for a quick semi permanent fix...

My first guess would also be your airfilter. Take it out and wash it and reoil. Gas works fine for washing it and I'm sure you'll find somebody around there with a bit of filter oil.
Good luck, have you gotten any sunshine yet? It is nice and sunny down here

my klr canundrum(s)

well its good to hear you didn't drown up there, hope ya dry out and can see the rest of yer trip through dry glasses.
ummm, it occurs to me the KLR loves to have that sticky(stuck open) cable-to-switch on the kick stand, fuggn thing caused me a load of grief until i disconnected it.(pull the cover and remove the pin on the end of the cable and shove the sticky switch up, closed) its worked perfect eversince. also that stupid clutch switch in the clutch lever, sometimes it won't close(stuck) and needs to be by-passed.
Davids float boal draining also could be the solution. a splash of Methyl in yer gas will help with that too. that over priced Seafoam stuff works good too.
I just mowed the front feilds here, sunny as heck, love'n it.
