First off it is usual for one of these bike to start without any choke? I was around 55 degrees in my garage today when I fired up the bike and to my surprise it took right off without much cranking or any choke. It started almost like an injected bike. I checked the plug when I first got the bike and it was pretty black, but not oil fouled. It cleaned right up with a few passes of a nylon brush. Are these 2 indications that itís running richer than it should be? I havenít had a chance to get out and run though a tank yet so I have no idea what sort of mileage Iím getting.
I boughta 98 DR350se and it starts the same. My 06 DRZ 400s has to have the choke pulled out. Both bikes stock. Curious to hear some replies.
