motor dies, and sounds like starter kicks off.

Recommended Posts

Quite often the motor on the my DRZ dies, usually when coming to a stop, but also when the bike is left idleing. The motor doesn't drop off and die, or have a weak idle. Each time it dies I hearwhat sounds like the sarter, whenit dies I hear a noise like the starter disengageing or perhaps hanging. There are no unusual noices while running, but always when it dies there is a noise kind of like a mechanical release it's hard to explain the sound. But any sort of idea what might be causing it??

Raise the idle a bit to see if it stops it stalling, the starter noise you are hearing is the torque limiter or sprag clutch, normal noise. Don't worry about it.
