engine cutting out at redlights?!

Recommended Posts

Guys,

3 times today in city driving my DRZ just died at a red light. No warning, no puttering or stalling...just died.

Granted earlier this week I messed up my radiator cap and the bike overheated. I've since replaced the cap with a new stock OEM. Did 50 miles of highway with no probs today, then headed into stop & go traffic in the city and it's been cutting out. Starts right back up after the problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the tip. Just bought the bike and I think the carbs need a cleaning as you say. I ordered the JD kit yesterday so as soon as that comes in i'm doing the 3x3, carb clean & jetting.

might work for you..if draining the bowl dosen't do it.
