I always let it warm up while I'm putting on my heated gear.

Clogged jet, happens to all drzs if they sit more than a week without being started. Mine does the same thing, simple to fix. Keep Stabil in your gas all the time and it wont do it as often.....
Thats what everyone has been saying over on TT. I checked 2 bikes shops around here no one has any jets for it. And the goofballs at the Suzuki dealer said they couldn't sell me jets "there mechanics would put them though" . A friend of mine bought out Yamaha of Madison's inventory he has 2 or 3 boxes full of jets but has been gone all week.

The 2 dealers you went to are full of hogwash! Did you happen to ask them if they would be willing to get you aftermarket jets? I have a bunch of Mikuni jets left from a Yamaha dealer I bought out years ago, but not alot for the new Keihin FCR's. But, regardless, the jets are available aftermarket. Only downside is that you usually have to buy them in a 5 pack that way. What's wrong with yours? If they're clogged from sitting, just pop 'em out and clean everything. What kind of carb is on that bike?

Yes they can order them, but I kinda thought that jets would be a common part that a motorcycle shop would carry. And after the dumb questions they asked and there attitude towards everything I didn't even offer to let them order anything for me. I'll give my business to on-line MC part dealers.

My friend in Madison more than likley would have them but I just found out he is in upstate NY for a week or so. So I ordered from Bike Bandit.

Just take out the ones you have. Blow them out with air and clean them up real good. It doesnt take much to stop one up. You do have a fcr,correct?

Also . Sometimes on mine if I drain the floatbowl via the drain tube a coulple of times that is enough to unclog it.

Compression,fuel,spark=boom.... Without knowing if you have a s or an e model. Do you have a kinked petcock vac. line??

Alright platterdr. Try this. Go out and drain the floatbowl by opening the drain, mine has a small allen screw. Do this with the fuel turned to the on setting.Close drain. Then full choke and several turns of throttle. The bike will crank and backfire. Keep giving it more turns with the throttle till it runs a few seconds then dies. Repeat till the bike runs and will take throttle without dying. This is how mine acts when it sets awhile without any Stabil in it. Bet your jets are fine. Good luck.

I check carburation with a squirt bottle of gas. If you can squirt gas in the carb and make it run you know it's in the carb. If you can't and have spark and compression then I'd look to the timing. Pretty easy to check and see if the cam chain has jumped a tooth. Not super common but I've read about it happening with the old style tensioners. Do you have a manual cam chain tensioner yet?

Like backmarker said, If you have the vacuum operated fueltap, make sure it's working and plugged in. I switched mine over to manual and capped off the vacuum port on the carb and had the vacuum cap pop off once. It still started but not as good. If you need another vacuum fueltap your welcome to my old one.

Those look much more reasonable than the Hippo hands, not to mention more affordable. Do they fit over the stock brush guards or just over the levers?

Just curious. I might have to order a set of those real soon. Thanks for the tip.

i have acerbis bark busters, and they fit over them just fine.

platter, u have been tryin to start it when it's been cold outside....right?

don't take anything apart yet, clean n check plug gap...make sure u have gas flowing to carb. friday when it's warm, set it out in sun for a bit. i bet it starts.

oh, and an inline fuel filter would be a good idea too.
