    Weird engine death

    Mine has very similar symtoms, after puking all its coolant out. Just pops and backfires, doesnt pickup. This is the same after a topend rebuild, new rings/gaskets/timing chain etc. At the moment I have the FCR apart, but it doesnt appear to be the problem. When you try to start yours, does it pop/backfire when you release the starter button? Mine does....

    confused

    Not a chance! Have you heard one?? My RS3 stainless came with 'offroad' written in big letters on the can. It rubbed off easily enough though:thumbsup:

    Bike wont start after rebuild...

    Yes, I found the Oring and washer, and cleared up for the night. Hopefully will have the carb off, completely cleaned and reinstalled tonight. It all looks good and clean though.. Cheers Pete

    Thanks m8, assembled after I noticed the wear mark.... I am having a horrible time trying to get the float chamber back on whilst the carb is still on the bike (though twisted toward me. What is the best way to remove it? Do I have to remove both cables etc??

    Yes, all clear! A quick question, the circular diaphram in the chamber held by 3 allen screws, which way up does it go??

    Thanks William, you have a saints patience... Pilot jet is a 45, center hole and all 8 little holes are clear. The other jet is a 65, also clean. Now need to find an Oring and washer...and reassemble.
