2006 DR-Z400 Dies above idle.

Recommended Posts

I cleaned my carb and everything ran great. Then I let it sit too long again. Now it idles, but as soon as I give a bit of gas, it dies. If I give it a lot of gas, it goes. I'm betting one of the jets is clogged. Does anyone have any idea which one?

Thanks, Richard

If your letting your bike sit for periods routinely , start adding Star Tron additive to the tank to stop the gumming and crystallizing . All fuel issues have stopped since I add that stuff in all my yardwork engines , bikes, atvs , boat ,ect.. Before that anything that sat for a few weeks had issue 70-80% of the time.

Thanks for the replies. I have put maybe 100,000 miles on bikes and have never used a shop except for warranty work. This carb was the exception. I took it to be ultrasonically cleaned. The shop guy says the best thing they've found to fight ethanol is K-100. So I'm using that, plus, my local gas station now offers ethanol-free gas for about 25% more than regular. :(

(No corn for my gas tank! Corn only belongs in beef and jokes.)

Corn is for eatin, feedin livestock, or makin whiskey. And not necessarily in that order.
