    Cold weather running

    thanks guy's for your quick replies i had tried turning the idle speed but as mentioned not very good either not enough or way too much, thought it might be down to carb icing i will look into getting a heating element as i use the bike all year round. many thanks again degsy

    Cold weather running

    hi folks, i live in UK and have a 04 DRZ400s but in really cold spells the bike starts ok but does'nt like running on idle /slow speed in these conditions even after travelling to work 6 miles as im turning at slow speed in car park or stopping at lights etc the bike tries to cut out. I have no problems at all when its even slightly warmer or when travelling longer distances. The bike as a full power bomb exhaust and the jetting is correct but has not been modified 3x3 etc. The bike is regulary serviced every 1000k and is well looked after. any helped much appreciated Degsy

    how many miles in 1 day??

    it was very windy heading down south a lot of bufferting but as we kept mainly to 'A' roads not too bad, backside not too bad more top/inside of thighs got a little tender but ok next day no real aches at all considering, on the motorway from Exeter to Manchester we kept at a steady 75/80 and refuelled twice ps on the final stages (motorway=head down)opened her up and saw an indicated 96mph and still rising great day this time last week
