DRZ400sm cuts out when throttled.

Recommended Posts

Going down the highway and went to pass someone, when I applied a hard throttle it cut out completely and then came back on. (Not meaning the bike turned off.) It only has 750 miles on it.

Oil change maybe??! It's over 100 degrees every day and I ride at 70mph for about 15min each day back and forth.

Well if you have done your first oil change I would recommend doing it NOW.

 

In terms of the cutting out, it could be many things. Low fuel at the time? bad spark plug? A new DRZ really shouldn't be having these issues.

Yea, I've changed it once at 400 miles. I think it really just needs another oil change.

An oil change really shouldn't cause or fix whatever issue you are having. I changed my oil at 600 miles and I haven't changed it since then. I'm approaching 2k miles so Im going to change it soon.

 

But I've done multiple highway miles, one track day and I've never felt any cutout of any sort.
