DR650Se floods when hot, perhaps?
« on: November 24, 2014, 07:41:10 am »
Hi All

Please help.

Friday: Wnet to the dentist. Pained. Paid. Came back
Bike 100% nothing funny
Stood for about 30-45 minutes

Refused to start. Smelt a lot of petrol.
Started eventually 3 hours? later.

Saturday: Went to shoprite 2km at the most so bike should have been rather cold still
in shop for 20 mins
Refuse to start.
Remove petrol hose between petcock and carb
Starts immediately

Sunday
Starts first thing
Go to church 30km
Stand for 1.30 hour
refuses to start
Remove petrol hose between petcock and carb
Starts immediately

Monday
Starts frist thing
Take kid to school
after 10-15mins in traffic dies. We were standing still for 5-10 minutes
refuses to start
pinch petrol hose between petcock and carb
Starts immediately, stutters, splutters and then fine



Any ideas?
thanks

Clean fuel tap and float needle valve.
The fuel tap being stuck open happens often but is only an issue if the needle valve is leaking too.
