Time to chip in. Chavo's CRF450X keeps stalling and he has to wait 5-10 minutes for it to start again. Ideas?

Jetting at altitude?
Main jet clogging from dust?
Fuel vaporizing in the bowls due to altitude?

CRF450X experts?

The nav-tower looks very similar when comparing the twitter-pic and the official Dabrowski-pic. The same goes for the handguards.

So then Dabrowski probably does ride a bike registered in Austria.

I'm way behind. Decided to get my hair done this am. Get home and son wants to ride. Motor seized a mile from home. Cell died. Went to 3 houses to use phone and all said no? WTH? Luckily he'd been gone too long so I was heading out to look for him. He'd already push 1/2 mile, poor kid.

ANyway....what does "marathon" actually mean? I understand tonight no crew members in the bivy with them. Is it anything else?

I know last year I saw pictures of support trucks lined up on the roads waiting for their riders to come by to lend a helping hand before the riders rode off to the biv. Legal? Probably not, but it looked to be normal and everyone was doing it.

I've been watching this silly thing called darts for a couple of hours now - we haven't missed the Dakar coverage yet.

I'll shout out here when it's about to go...

Carb or EFI?


First check both for proper venting of the fuel system.



If carb, check the bowl and the pilot jet

If EFI, check fuel filter, pressure, and injectors for clogs.

From Manuels FB page

"I'm having some tough days, yesterday i broke the clutch at 100km from the end of the special and started having engine issues. Today was a disaster the bike has lost a lot of power and i hardly get to 115km/h which is really slow. Im very worried cos the spare engine i have has to be rebuilt, i have all the pieces but no idea on how to do! In some hours i have the last stage before rest day, hope i manage to get there."

I understand why they are doing this, but I'm not sure I like it. I mean, it's what the Dakar is. If his bike can't be fixed with what HE has, then that should be it. Luck of the draw in this type of race.

From what I understand (which by no means is complete) it means that you're alone in the bivouac. The only stuff you've got to work with is that which you brought into the bivouac. And the riders are the ones doing the wrenching, not the support crew.

And our favorite flatbiller is gonna have to spend a night outside is megaRV. Would like to see his face next morning. ;)
