Hey DRZ owners. I just moved from California to Sweden and having an unusual problem. I shipped my bike overseas with my furniture and it hasn't been started in almost 6 months. Now I am having an extremely difficult time starting the bike and it will die after about a minute of running. Background: Even before I left, I noticed that when I would trailer the bike somewhere, or when I haven't run in it a couple of weeks, it would have a difficult time starting, sometimes the starter would act like it was jamming (giving the engine a half turn then freezing, no additional clicks). However after a few tries the engine would start no problem. Now that Im here in Sweden, it's much colder (near freezing) and the bike won't start on its own. I assume the battery is pretty much dead. Hooking the starter directly up to a car battery, it will struggle (behaving like before) then start turning over and eventually start, but after the bike warms up, it slowly lowers RPMs till it stops running. This happens with the choke on. With the choke off, it will rev up fine but slowly die otherwise. I know that I need a new battery, but I think there is something more serious happening. Last time I checked the valve clearance (about 8 months ago before a baja trip) the clearances were within spec, but all hovering around the minimum allowable spacing. I pulled the carb and the jets are all clear. I put 95 unleaded in the tank. I've had minor starting struggles in the past but never this bad, and never had the bike just die after a few minutes consistently. Any ideas? On another note, this is a plated bike, and I plan to register it in Sweden. It requires a parking light in the front, among other things. I'll post another thread about that.
