Thank you.
I distinctly remember reading 1, 2, and 3; I was thinking "That's where I use my torque wrist."

Do you or your supplier have a matching wave rotor for the rear? I understand it wouldn't have the gold hub, but a matching edge wave and drill pattern would be sweet.
Nope. I have not seen a wave rotor for the rear of the DR

I've got about 30,000 kms on mine now and works well. Seems to be wearing heaps better than the stock one which was trashed at about 15,000 kms

The battery is charged and I can hear it cranking. Carburetor was cleaned today and the fuel filter replaced With in line filter as per Krusty's thread. I was away from this forum and from bikes in general for too long to think by myself what's next...
Anyone with a hint for this lazy inmate?
Would the Spark plugs be the next thing to check?

(by the way, the bike came from Utah to Texas on a truck with my household items about a year ago and never started ever since...)

Cheers

Congrats on the new baby!! A DRZ400??
Here is an update on my attempt to get the DR back up and running:
It turned down it was indeed the floatbow that was empty. Since I have an inline gas filter and therefore a big loop on the gas hose, it took several attempts to prime the system again. The method applied consisted of removing the hose with the check valve from the top of the gas cap on my IMS tank and blowing on the cap to pressurize the tank. With the check valve back on, we cranked the bike several times to force gas into the carb. We even had to stop and charge the battery again before we could resume the same procedure a few more times. It finally worked and the bike started!! Yay!!!

Now to the next issue:
Bike is backfiring a lot and exhaust pipe is glowing red. Really red! As if it is one step away from becoming liquid metal. (I will post a picture shortly).
I know I've red something about it on this Forum a long time ago. I will have fun with the search engine in a little bit to try and find it again.
I also have a hint that both issues (backfiring and glowing) are connected and probably related to the quality of the mixture the carburetor is putting out.

To do list:
1) Search Advrider for glowing exhaust pipe and a 101 on carb adjustment
2) By seafoam and add to the gas

Cheers

I just changed out my pilot jet because it's mentioned frequently. I was quite surprised how small the stock 42.5 jet opening is. If you just cleaned your carb and didn't remove the pilot and run something soft thru the jet, it may be plugged. That would also explain why it was so hard to start. If it's plugged and the bike started on the choke circuit, your idle fuel mixture would be quite lean and could cause the glowing pipe.

J/K for those without a sense of humor.

Running the DR inside a garage will get the pipe very red in a very short time. Not unusual. Stainless steel pipe turns red very easily.

Ok so a major electrical crisis happened today. 2011 DR. The license plate light ground and power wires came loose and touched while the bike was running and burned up a bunch wiring. The bike died before i could shut it off. No battery power now. The 30a fuse blew so I replaced that but still no power. The battery terminals are fine and the wiring coating is all burned up but the wires still look ok. I hope the fuses protected the battery from the short but I don't know. I didn't have time to really dig around as I was late and had to jump in my car but tomorrow night I will get some pictures up and hopefully have a clearer idea of what's wrong. Since every problem with a DR had been fixed on this thread I thought I'd post up and see if you fellow inmates can give me some target areas to focus on. I would love to get this fixed myself with some handiwork and electrical tape. I have disconnected the license plate light wiring from the harness but the short went up past that. Ayudame!

That's where I'd place my bet. Any idea what condition your cush rubbers are in? I know that when I replaced mine with about 30,000km on the bike it made a noticeable difference towards smoothing out the ride while cruising on the hwy.

I've fallen back in love with the DR. Maybe I will pull it off the market....

Seems odd that I can't sell it for 15% below book value in Montana, land of the fireroad......

WOW! You wore out your rear rotor in about 6,000 less miles (doing the conversion for the U.S. readers) than I wore out my OEM brake pads! I still had 3/32" left on my OEM brake pads and minimal rotor wear at almost 15,000 miles, when I replaced the pads.

You must spend most of your mileage off-road going downhill? My mileage is almost entirely on-road, mostly up/down foothills roads, so mostly front brake use.

I replaced my front OEM pads at 9,100 miles, rotor looked as-new.

I wonder if you fixed a fitment problem when you replaced the rotor. My KLR went through a set of rear pads surprisingly quickly; on inspection I found the brake pad backing plates binding in the caliper, had to hog out the mounting holes a bit.
