I rejetted carb today now the front wheel won't stay down! whats wrong?

Recommended Posts

When you rejet a DRZ you have to change the air in the tires to compensate for the richer air/fuel mixture.

Its a common problem that most mechanics don't know about. But when you've fallen on your head as much as I have you know these things. :)

Same to you. I hope you didn't have too many Miester Braus tonight. Isn't it cool how easily the front wheel lofts up! :)

Oh, come on, guys! It's so simple; maybe you need a refresher course. It's all muffler bearings now days. Don't forget to prep them first with 3 in 1 oil and gauze pads.

All wrong ! With the front wheel prob...? Your solution is to check the canuter valve at the sphetzer junction. Located near your A arms ! If its there, remove it !

Now you should be ready to move onto the

2.Muffler bearing fix

3.Blinker fluid swap

Much love to the DR brotherhood.
