I wonder how much

How tall and what is the weight. I have been looking at the FZ09 for a replacement for my V Strom ( It's getting too tall as I age). This might be what I was looking for.

Seafoam

Put the carb back on, fill it up with Seafoam and let it set overnight. Then drain, fill with gas and start.
If that wont fix it, you have a vacuum leak.
