Take off all hoses, radiator cap, everything. Take a rag and a air nozzle (use alot of pressure) put it in the radiator cap, and one of the openings to the motor, wrap the rag around the hole and blow the air into it, make sure no air can come back ot toward you, thats what I did and it workd great. Do it a few times to be sure but that will get everything out! Let me know how it goes!

hopefully i got every thing out. i let everything drain and then flushed out the radiator and resivar with a hose. then i put all the hoses back on and put the engine ice in. everything seems to being going good. what would happen if i didnt get all of the old coolant out

It would just mix together. Not really a huge deal, but its just piece of mind to know everything was out when you did it. When you say you flushed it with water did you blow all the excess out after that??

      The problem occurs about the midrange, the motor runs uneven and dont produce any power. The motor starts easily, don't smoking, and idles very well. Under and above this certain rpm range the bike runs well. In neutral the problem dont occurs. In smaller gears and in sliperry terrain where the wheel can spin the bike runs better. My first thought was it is a carburetor problem, but douesnt matter the throttle position, the problem always occurs on the same rpm range, so I start to think maybe the ignition has the problem. I found the stock carburetor setting is: 170 main, and nldt-4 needle. The bike had 175 main and I changed it to 162 (because there is 2 type of k9 rmz 250 and the other type of k9 stock main is 162) but it dont solve the problem, I also tried different clip positions. I changed the spark plug and the old the spark plug has a perfect brown color. I dont check the float level and needle because I think if its bad the bike would run bad in every rpm range. By the way the bike is totally stock. Sorry if I made any mistake in my write, my english knowledge is not perfect.

      I have a 2001 dr650 that dies whenever I give it a little gas.  The bike has a procycle jet kit, along with the modified air box and a DG muffler.  The bike ran fine until I drilled the slide and slightly clipped the spring (conservatively on both).  After re-assembling, it will start fine and idle fine until I give it gas.  I checked to make sure the small o-ring for the vacuum line was still there and it is.  I've took the carb apart and put it back together a few times now looking for anything but it all seems clean and in good shape.  I have also checked the small fuel filter and it is clear.  Any help would be appreciated.

      We've sold thousands of the ThumperTalk manual cam chain tensioners to DRZ bike owners, so I thought I'd make sure our LTZ owners too were aware of this little gem...
