oil circulation

There is a good possibility that the oil paths are part clogged,
I only have a limited manual but did get into it and on page (4-15) a schematic is pictured giving one route of oil from the head retuning via the oil tube off the head. A place to start anyway.

That is normal and is not a problem. There should be oil in there, otherwise you would have a real problem.

This is not a problem.

Talking Comfortable and Safe Cornering

Things like what am I doing wrong when my front wheel wants to slide out from under me going around corners and roundabouts in the wet. Yes I'm still running Trailwings but I'm talking about speeds of round 30kph so it definitely has to be an inexperience thing right?
Any tips?
I completely missed that you were talking about riding on the street in the wet when I posted yesterday. My bad.
I shall try to redeem myself with this link.
No video purchase required!

While it is not specifically about riding in the wet, the techniques are the same.

"Cornering TW"
http://tw200forum.com/index.php?/top...-cornering-tw/

Yes, it is about another bike, but the responses and suggestions apply to all our bikes that are fitted with less than the best traction street tires.

That means dual sport tires, knobbies, worn out deathwings, etc.

Hope this helps.

Did mine a couple of years ago with front springs and a shock service and heavier spriing from Vince Strang. I just emailed him my specs and riding I do and accepted his recommendation which included heavier fork oil.

Fork springs alone made a very noticeable difference and with the heavier shock spring was like a different bike.

Talk to Vince.

Rough idle/hesitation

Help with this please! I've had my 99 DR for about 4 month's. Stock everything. It's developed a strong hesitation/stopping at idle. It sounds fine, then it seriously hesitates almost like I turned the key off & on quickly. I don't notice anything at full or half throttle. It runs strong down the road, but has died at stop lights a few times. I turned up the idle a bit, still does it but won't die now.

I figured a carb clean is in order, but just wanted to ask if anyone has experienced this. It's just kind of abrupt when it does it.

Yep, that's the first thing to do.

Probably needs a new pilot jet, fresh o-rings, float adjustment and a fuel filter. Procycle sells a BST kit. On a 99, I would look at replacing the float needle if its original. The rubber tips become very hard over time.

I don't have any idea what might cause that or what it means. I was looking forward to an answer myself, just out of curiosity. If you don't get any answers here I would call Jesse at Keintech. I'll bet he would be able to shed some light on it. Every time I've called he's been really nice and really helpful.

If so how do I unclog it and is this getting clogged a sign of some other problem?

So, it was full to the top? Never seen that on my bike, always some oil below the rockers. Nothing more than a couple ounces though.

Was the engine cold? Doesn't sound right.... That ain't normal for my bike.

I have the same symptoms on my 2007. I've never been in the carb, but I guess checking the pilot jet would be a good place to start. Kind of embarrassing when your bike dies at a light right when it turns green.
