    I have a used set of S wheels for dirt but I no longer ride dirt anymore due to physical ailments. Still ride my DRZ on the street though but don't need the extra wheels to swap out anymore. You pay for shipping. I'm asking $475 for the pair that includes rotor and sprocket and existing tires. I live in Belmont, CA if you want to save on shipping and can pick up.

    lots of gas in oil change? WTH?

    First time through with the incorrectly sized oring, carb was flooding and wouldn't start up easily after the first time. After I swapped out for the new correctly sized oring, no problems starting.

    So I bought a different oring from O'reilly's (instead of Napa). It fit perfectly. I popped everything back together and presto! Everything is working great. Thanks for everyone's help. It's riding time again.

    ok, I changed petcock diaphrams on both sides, (basically a rebuild thanks to Jonathan) put in new oil, filter and air filter. cleaned carb and jets. put new oring on float valve. It seemed a little big and it didn't place all the way down in the hole. I put new gas in and it fired right up! 8 seconds later, gas started leaking so I shut the engine down. checked all hoses and they were where they should be. tried to fire up again and this time it wouldn't start. pulled choke on and it started although it was sputtering. Could the slightly incorrect sized oring be my culprit. I'll have to go back to Napa to see if they have something smaller than the 8mm x 1.5mm oring. They gave me standard vs metric and I thought it would be close enough. I wasn't able to seat the float valve all the way down with the o ring provided so I've got to get the proper size somewhere. It did look like it fit properly though. Perhaps a tad thicker than what I pulled off. Thanks for your advice. Paul

    Thanks. I did all that. Now to try to put that oring back on or order it. Thanks,

    I pumped the gas out of the cylinder. To be clear, when you say to finish draining the crankcase and the frame, I left the bottom oil drain plug off. Do I need to open the upper frame oil drain plug too? Is there another way for me to drain the crankcase? In the process of waiting for things to drain, I inadvertently opened up the starter cover and found that the gasket had been stretched. Can I cut it and reduce the size or just order a new one? My local Suzuki shop doesn't carry them.:-( Thanks,

    Thanks Ralph, I can manually turn the crank but how do I know when I should stop? when fluid stops coming out? also, shouldn't I check the plug at some point? Thanks, Paul

    lots of gas in oil change? WTH?

    I woke up this morning and found a ton of gas had leaked into and out of my air box and unto my garage floor. I read prev. posts and they said to drain the oil, check the petcock and check the oring in my carb. In draining the oil, at least a gallon of gas came out along with the oil? I did have hard starting the other day for the first time. It even died on me at idle at a stop light. Luckily, I was able to ride the bike home. I hope that I didn't screw things up? Checked petcock and gas was not leaking at on and res positions. My question is this, after draining the oil, do I refill the bike wiith oil before I manually turn the crank to get gas, etc. out of the spark plug hole or after? I've misplaced my little tool bag that has the spark plug puller with it (i spent 2 hours looking for it today to no avail) . Is there something else that I can use. Does anyone live near San Mateo, CA that I can borrow their spark plug puller? Thanks for any and all advice. I will try to find the oring that Noble recommends. Paul

    Thanks all. I didn't mention that I did refill the oil in the engine after cleaning the filter. I will check the sparkplug today and pull the carb. Hopefully that'll do the trick. I'm jonesin to go ridin again.
