Well, I have a problem with my DRZ
(i've been over to thumpertalk, and no help on this one so someone might have an idea here) I'll shorten the story
Went for a ride the other day, bike stopped running and wouldn't start (I've been having a problem with rust in the tank clogged the PJ) Took the carb out, cleaned it and the bike struggled to start but it did start, Rode it up to the nearest road to go home and it died again but started so I headed right for home.
On my way home It felt like a lost of power (Not huge lost of power, but some) when I pulled it the driveway the bike just shut off (It got me home though
) Now it won't start, So here's what I've checked so far
Carb is cleaned again
new spark plug, it has very strong spark
the timing is right (Checked from TDC and looking at the cams)
Cam chain tensioner is manual, and doesn't appear to have backed off
Ignition timing is non adjustable on these bikes
Valves are in spec except for one exhaust is just alittle tight.
Checked over the wiring, and the dummy switches (kickstand and clutch switches have been removed on this this)
I drained the oil, looks like oil and doesn't smell like gas or coolant.
The starter will run, and I can feel the piston moving, It wants to start but it won't kick. The plug is wet after abit, so it's getting fuel and has spark so does this leave me with lack of compression?
I just found it weird since to rode home good then just died, wouldn't a lack of compression been really noticeable on the ride home that day?
Any help would be great, I just didn't want to start tearing the top end apart if I didn't have to, although it looks like I will be.
