  2. I am new to this bike and had not noticed this before. All of a sudden The Bike seems to be lean (did not have a lean bog off idle last week), however if I crack the throttle at idle, it will stall (severe lean condition I think)? The pipe will glow cherry red (4-5 inches down the pipe just idling for a couple of minutes (3 or so) from a cold condition. Do they all do this or should do you think something happend inside of carb to lean this out. I did go through a very deep water crossing and the bike skipped for a while when I got through. Soon after, it overheated when idling for a few minutes (after a full day of riding) with no problems before that. I am confused as what could have happened to the bike. Once off bottom end, it seems to run well with good throttle response and power It just has a bad low end (just of idle bog when throttle is cracked) and I think it is running way too lean at idle. Just cannot figure out what would cause this all of a sudden??? Muzzym
  3. I have an 02 WR426. Runs strong. I rode fairly hard in hot weather a few weeks back and noticed oil dripping (quickly) from the head vent tube. After further inspection, I noticed that there is a pretty good flow of air pressure blowing out of this vent tube when running. Do you think this pressure (blow by) is being generated by a broken oil ring or head gasket? If I unscrew the oil filler cap while running, oil will almost pump out of the filler tube (again it seems to be pretty well pressurized) The only reason I really noticed this is that I checked the oil before riding today and it was very low. (should not have been) Additionally, it has what seems to be a lean bog (will stall engine) if throttle is cracked quickly) None of this (leaking oil or bogging) was happening prior tp my last ride. Pretty sure I broke something, just looking for some second opions. Any help is appreciated. Muzzym

    426 leaking out the head breather hose? why?

    I have an 02. Just noticed oil dripping out of the head vent tube as well. Is it normal to for these to blow air out of the tube while running? I think I have an engine issue aven though it seems to run ok. I am wondering if I broke an oil ring or have a head gasket issue? Any help is appreciated. Muzzym
