Fairly loud too then turned over. First time it has done that. I just adjusted the valves a hundred miles ago ( correctly i think ) .

Could it be cause the motor was cold and i didnt choke it or ?

Well not exactly a problem . But I was just looking for a word from the glorious DR veterans on whether it could become a problem or not . This is my first magic button bike. So I have no experience in requiring extra cranks of a starter and or backfires.

my xt and xl never had these kind of issues.

Yes, this...if the stock fuel tap has been changed to a non-vacuum type.

Or...a stock fuel tap that doesn't shut off when the engine is off PLUS the bad O-rings or a sticking float, but that's a BIG coincidence.

Nope , bone stock everything , including vacum line. and remember this bike ony still has 800 and a few miles on it so nothing should be wore out at all imho .

Just the fact it wouldnt start right away and the loud backfire while cranking made me nervous

All ready for 2014 and Colorado.
I completely rebuilt the carb with Motolabs tutoring. New slide, slide guide , needle , jets and float adjustment. She is running fantastic. Starts right up, no surging anywhere, no off idle hesitation anymore either.
Nice even fuel flow now

I'll replace it with the one Rusty got.


Just need spring to arrive.


I should have replaced the shock with a Cogent while I had her apart but didn't. That is next though. 13.5k on the stock Sealy bed spring shock. So it's shot.

May be the pic and plenty of variables here but it looks like your chain is binding a little. May be initial wear or just in need of a good lube. Glad Derek was able to help sort the carb and it's working well for you.

Yea, it is, your correct. I soaked the hell out of it with a WD40 type lube hoping that would loosen it up, but no. That is the original chain. I'm just trying to squeeze a few more miles out of it. I plan to change out new chain and sprockets before we head west later this season.
Derek was very helpful !

If it weren't for the fact that I've topped my funny bone full of laughs for a few months from your valve adjustment ordeal I'd say, definitely.

Sounds like you are following my route. I had 705's for commuting and then got tired of slipping on the fire roads. I now have a MT21 up forward and a shinko 244 on the rear. The bike tracks great now. I also replaced my chain and sprockets from ProCycle. 14 forward and 42 rear with an EK520 chain. The performance offroad is great. I feel like I can climb anything now without lugging the engine.
