  1. Luckily the bike came with a Clymer manual. Time to start memorizing.
  2. Okay, I'm embarassed asking this but can't find a straight answer anywhere on the web, but I've read that Automotive Carb cleaner is bad for MC Carbs, so does anyone have a recommendation for what I should use? Apart from basic tools and the carb cleaner, are there any other products I should consider for "float height measurement", lubrication, cleaning, etc? Thanks! Edit: I just grabbed the PJ1 Pro-Enviro Carb Cleaner from the TT store along with the TT Extended Fuel Screw and the JDS005 Jet Kit. Woop!
  3. I'm not sure if it was sitting. Even after it's warm it was stalling, but I think that also had to do with the petcock having an alarmingly fast leak. This damn bike is going to be brand new by the time I'm done with it. I guess you never really own a bike until you're able to take it completely apart!
  4. Hell yeah! Thanks all! Jim, I'll PM you if I have any questions!
  5. Thank you!!! Would this kit work with a yosh full exhaust and 3x3 mod?
  6. I'm planning on pulling the carb, which as you know is one of those things that noobs like me try to avoid at all cost but I will hopefully learn it isn't too bad. To my knowledge it has the original fuel screw - that's the throttle stop, right? Got it. I'll keep that in mine when going through the carb.
  7. I bought the bike with the 3x3 mod and exhaust added. It didn't run too well (had some backfiring), but I'm almost positive it was rejetted for those mods. I'm in DC which is 1-150ft (1 - 45m) elevation but will sometimes ride through the rolling hills of WV/VA/PA (up to 3000ft/1000m). What/where is the enricher? When looking it up most results are of people asking what the enricher is.
  8. Thanks for the responses. I changed the oil and filter and it did smell of gas, so I got my hopes up that it was the problem. Nope. I have it all back together and I'm having the same issues. It's almost like it's unable to pull fuel in, as it takes a good 20 seconds of the engine turning, me sitting for a minute, then trying again just to get it to start, rev high, and stall. I also got a bit of backfire from the choke (I'm not sure if this was where the backfiring came from, but I felt the warmth). Anyway, it looks like I'm going to have to clean and rejet the carb. How do I pick out the jets? The bike has a full Yoshimura exhaust and the 3x3 mod, would this change which jets I should put in it? (this is more of a side questions since I'll just Google around for the answer). Thank you
  9. Bike: 2002 DRZ400S Long time lurker here and am posting now that I've tried everything short of removing the carb. Basically, I bought a DRZ400 a week ago. The test ride went fine though it had some backfire on deceleration - no big deal, and the seller made sure to point out that the petcock was leaking a bit - being inexperienced with vacuum petcocks, I figured the fuel hose just needed replaced. Fast forward a week and I've replaced the petcock with a manual one and plugged the vacuum line. Now the bike will not idle at all. I've tried having the throttle stop all the way in, all the way out, and everywhere in between and it still has the same issue - it'll start up, rev quite high, then if I don't rev it with the throttle it dies. When revving it with the throttle it sounds like it'll be fine, but when I stop it'll die almost instantly. If I keep revving it'll start to sound bogged then eventually will die. I made sure the vacuum hose was completely plugged with a snug bolt. One other thing is that the fuel outlet on the new petcock is quite smaller than the stock one, but tightening the clasp seemed to give a good seal. Here's the replacement petcock: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009B07YYK Anyone ever have this issue or have any ideas?
