    Idle rattle, Help/Adivice

    yes the carb is a mikuni, but i think i need to revise the jetting situation on the bike, because when you lay off the throttle and the bike starts to come down just before it reaches the idle speed (whilst still in gear) it does the loudest backfire known to man! it also does this when coming to a stop and you allow the engine to engine brake, it will do two or three backfires. it only does the backfires when the throttle is compleatly shut off. iff i pull the clutch in and keep blipping the throttle when coming to a stop is dosnt backfire at all. some girl fell over a couple of weeks ago, think she though she had been shot at hi mate i am from derby (east midlands) where are you from? cheers james

    Idle rattle, Help/Adivice

    Right just been out and started the bike up from cold, the rattle is coming from the top end, it ticks over then "tap tap" idles fro a few seconds "tap tap". adjusted the idle screw which dosent seem to do much at all, all it does is when you lay off the throttle it stays revving higher, then returns back to normal idle speed no matter how many turns in or out you screw it. As said the tapping stops compleatly when the bike comes off idle, either with the choke or the throttle. the bike was running for about 2minutes at most and the rattle compleatly disappeared, which i cannot understand as the engine isnt hot. cheers guys, this noise is starting to worrie me now so any help appeciated

    Idle rattle, Help/Adivice

    Right i have had a look at the other threads and nothing realy matches it so here goes. My bike is a 2003 drz s, compleatly stock When i start my bike there is a distinctive metalic ticking noise, this is intermitant but has got worse in the past two weeks or so (600 miles) and is more distinctive and a more regular pattern now. The bike only makes this noise on idle and as soon as it is revved slightly it will stop. once the bike has been running a few minutes the noise totaly disappears and will idle without a hint of a noise Cheers Guys James

    and what would be the resolution to this problem.is it just the idle jet? i am running a moto-air filter. could it be done by adjusting the idle screw? cheers james

    DRZ400 Back Fire, should it???

    The bike is all stock as far as i am aware, obviously i have only had it a day or so and not had a chance to see what is in the carb. The airbox has NOT has the common cutting a bigger hole mod and the exhaust is standard too, it is a little loud though
  13. Hi im new to this forum, i have a 2003 drz400s and basicaly when it is revving quite high in any gear and i shut off the throttle it will somtimes backfire.
