carburetor problem ?

Recommended Posts

I had not ridden my DRZ for a month. I went to start the bike this morning and I could only get it to run with the choke all the way out. As soon as I pushed the choke half way in the bike would die. The bike will not idle regardless of where the idle is set.

I did a 3x3 mod per burned's instructions prior to my last ride and bike ran perfectly.

I pulled the spark plug and it looked normal. So I pulled the carb off and rechecked all of my work on the carb. Everything seemed correct. Can anybody throw me a clue on what the problem might be?

You guys were right on the money. I pulled the carb off, removed the pilot jet and blew through it (yes I know gas is carcinogenic) and a chunk of something blew out the other end. I can't help but think that some of the crap from the inside of my clarke tank made it into the carb. I washed the inside of the tank before installing it... but maybe not well enough. Thanks again for your insight.
