Well after a long winter I finally got my chance to get my newly aquired 2001 400E down to the Hatfield McCoy trails just south of my home. I spent the winter doing all the fixes/repairs detailed here, as well as lots of overdue regular maintenance. I had a great time but I took one hell of a beating, as did the bike. I don't really enjoy mixing it up with the four wheelers so I headed straight for the singletrack sections. I was at the Little Coal River trailhead which has a couple really nice singletrack sections, one is rated 192 and one 194 which means nothing to me, but I think they are pretty difficult as they just zig-zag back and forth and up and down the steep hillsides. It turned out to be a bit above my skill level as I had to abandon ship and drop the bike probably a half dozen times, and in addition to that I probably had a dozen or more minor offs and hundreds of stall outs, spin outs etc. The bark busters the PO installed did a good job of saving the grips and levers, and I managed to pull one of the radiator shroud mounting points out of the gas tank when I hit a tree, but overall the bike fared well and apprears to be very durable. It was still fun, but wow am I sore. The biggest issue I had was stalling the bike in the tight slow sections. It's geared very low already so I guess I need to use the clutch more. Most of my "abandon ship" moments were caused by these stalls when they happened on steel slopes and technical switchbacks. When it would stall and stop in it's tracks it made for a long fall when I came off on the downhill side. (which is seemed I always did) I find it difficult to feather the clutch when I'm doing a lot of turning and weight shifting. It's much easier to just chug along in 1st. So to you more skilled single trackers I ask, should I be using a lot of clutch in these tight slow sections? Could it be the carb settings? I just had it in for service this winter and the Suzuki mechanic said he had to replace a diaphram in the carb and while he was in there said he rejetted it 10% to match the Yoshi RS3 that the PO installed. I noticed that even when sitting idling with the bike warmed up it will stall if I try to rev it quickly. If I gradually increase the throttle it revs right up, but if I twist it fast it will die every time. I thought maybe that could be one of the things making it stall out in the slow stuff. Also any ST setup tips and tricks you can think of will be appreciated. Thanks in advance and sorry for the long winded post!
