Hi all, I wonder if any of you can help me figure out an aggravating problem I have with my DRZ. I have owned it since new and never had a problem. During a 150 mile ride (SheetIron300) the last 20 miles it started cutting out under mid RPM levels under load and got worse and worse until I had to rev it out completely to get it to go anywhere. I tried the plug, checked wiring for loose wires, cleaned the main jet, checked the float level, put new gas in it, cleaned the filter and removed the carb and replaced it to no avail. I took it to a Suzuki shop and they checked the compression, took the carb apart and cleaned it, checked the valve clearance, checked the coils with a tester and changed the plug and it worked. They were not sure what solved the problem. I ran it up and down the street and parked it. I took a buddy to ride and after an hour of riding the problem came back. We let the bike sit for 1/2 hour and it still came back intermittently finally occurring about 80% of the time. It immediately cuts out enough to reduce power a lot but enough to ride the bike on a trail at medium speed but it sounds terrible. I put 1.5 G of fresh gas in it. The rest of the gas was a few months old but in the past situations is was all fresh gas. Have any of you heard of this type of problem? Any ideas? I'm thinking it could be the coil even though the shop tested it. Perhaps it;s getting hot and shorting internally? I've never replaced the stator or and electronics.
