    drz engine rattle

    Nothing to do with the kickstand. It comes on as soon as the bike tilts slightly to the right.

    drz engine rattle

    I have read through all the threads on this subject but never really found an answer. I was hoping if people could actually hear what I am talking about I could get to the bottom of it.

    drz engine rattle

    my engine makes this rattle sound as I tilt the bike up off the kickstand then goes away soon as as I tilt it back.Here is a link to A video I took so you can hear it. Anybody have any idea what it is?

    need clutch help

    I am comparing it to the chinese 50cc 4 wheeler he had before.even with the throttle limited it seemed to engage instantly as gas was applied.with his limit screw out all the way it still seems like the rpms have to be really high before it engages. is this normal for the crf 50s.

    need clutch help

    I guess my question is how do I make the clutch engage as soon as the throttle is applied.
  7. I just bought my 7 year old son a crf 50. I have adjusted the clutch but there is a huge hesitation from the time you give gas till the clutch engages. does'nt seem to slip once it gets going and it shifts fine. its a 2007 and it looks like it was ridden very little. any help would be appreciated i
  8. thank you I will try a 155
  9. http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm233/kjmayer34/P1000903.jpg Is this scuffing normal wear or is something wrong? Also with this current jetting how many turns out should the pilot air screw be? drz400s aftermarket old style fcr yoshi full stainless steel exhaust 500 ft elev. emm needle clip 3 #160 mainjet #38 pilotjet 200 main air jet 60 starterjet fuel screw 2 turns pilot air screw 1 turn out? ran fine with stock exhaust but with yoshi it started bogging wot runs great from closed to 3/4 throttle ran it with the airbox lid off seamed a little better then taped off 1/3 of the 3x3 hole put cover back on airbox seemed slightly worse do I need a smaller mainjet.
  10. the bike ran fine before the rs3 and the rs3 has the insert in it I was under the impression it would be about the same.could the rs3 cause it to need a 155 main instead of the 160.
  11. seems better at clip 3 but still bogs at wot and only in gears 3rd through 5th. I did notice the pump squirt seems weak at first then shoots a steady stream. At first it dribbles out.
  12. sorry,pilot air screw old style fcr. seemed a little better with airbox lid off and the insert in the rs3 but still does not seem to rev out and the more load on the engine the worse it is.
  13. I searched through all the jetting info an d the only thing in question is the 38 pilot and the emm needle I quess.
  14. carb is from carbpartswarehouse and since I just put on rs3 exhaust I thought I would ckeck and see what jetting they used.bike is a drz400s stock except for the exhaust. Elevation is 500 ft roughly. ocemm needle clip 4 fuel screw 2 tuns out main jet 160 pilot jet 38 main air jet 200 pilot air screw 1 turn out runs pretty good but it seemed like it started hesitating when it warmed up at mid to wot like it was running out of gas. never did that till I put on the rs3 any help would be aprreciated.
  15. slide plate not broken square end is down sea level pilot jet 48 starter jet 65 pilot air jet 100 obdvr needle pos. 4 main air jet 200 main jet 180 cleaned and re-assembled yesterday runs much better. have not ridden it, but it would rev up with choke off. Alot of backfiring though. gas comming from overflow guess I didn't adjust the float right. Intake boot looks ok but with the clamps botttomed out I can still turn the carb.I sprayed around the boot but did not get any idle fluctuation
