Hi

Hello, Im a fresh DR owner and littel torubled whit my fuel mixture.
In winter i exhanged my stock silencer whit a KTM original one.




Now when I got finaly my licenses and drove my bike Im little worried that my bike runs a little lean. Everything is okey, no stalling,no gaps in acceleration but when I let off the gas after acceleration i hear very loud popping sound. Is it caused by muffler or too lean mixture ?
Otherwise, the bike is running like a dream

Turn the mixture screws out 1/8 to 1/4 turn and see if that works.
Allso if there is a small leak in the exaust eg, where it bolted on to the header pipe, this can allso give you some popping.
The popping is really caused by unburnt fuel in the exaust itself so running a tad richer makes the ratio of fuel to air a little rich to ignight in the exaust thuss eliminating the popping.

SR43 Fuel Tank question

When my SR43 was delivered, I noticed some staining on the right side oil filter cover that looked like a fuel had been seeping/leaking for a while.

I pulled the tank and found some wrinkled paint on the right side of the tank along the seam. This is at the low point of the tank. I removed the tank, and examined it with about 1/4 tank of fuel in it and could find no evidence of a leak.

Put everything back together, filled the tank to FULL and went for a 100 km ride today. After dinner I went out to the shop and smelled fuel. The right side fuel tank seam was damp with gasoline....but still no sign of any real leak.

The service manual described routing the "fuel tank water drain hose" down in back of the engine. Water drain hose???

Why would a fuel tank have a water drain hose. Anyway, this hose on my bike is only about 15 cm long and I didn't have enough spare line to extend it and route it correctly.

Could this be the source of my leak. Temp today was 32 and I didn't notice any leakage until after the bike had cooled down.

Would engine heat be expanding fuel and pushing it out somewhere.

All fuel lines, connections and carbs (just rebuild with new O-rings everywhere) are completely dry. The area around the filler is dry and the fill cover seals well.

Ideas ???
