Who are the Suzuki DRZ boffins in the Western Cape?
« on: June 16, 2015, 04:04:23 pm »


Who are the Suzuki DRZ boffins in the Western Cape that I can talk to about my once again sick DRZ? It will not idle, only runs at high revs and as soon as you shut off it back fires and dies.

So have removed and cleaned the carb, twice, replace it twice, replaced the stater, run it without the air cleaner only in the garage, and still I have this problem it just will not idle,

I replaced the stater because I had a similar problem once before and the stater had gone to ground, but this does not seem to be the problem. I am at a loss, someone please help before I put a match in the tank,

You have a pumper carb fitted?

Hey Grumpy did you get your bike sorted out?
You can never get lost - you just reach a different destination.
Every road has to lead somewhere - even if it is a dead-end.

Whereabouts in the WC are you? I had problems with my DRZ the past few months, don't want to start when its cold, especially after standing for a day or two, bumpstart was the only way to start it in the mornings. Anyway, the local car mechanic said I should take it to a specialist, to clean and tune the carburetor. The closest specialist to me in Tulbagh is Worcester Suzuki Bikes, I got very good service from them before. So yesterday I took my DRZ to Worcester Suzuki, when I collected the bike in the afternoon, the mechanic told me the problem was the valve clearances. My bike now has 22 000km's on the clock, I was under the impression that the DRZ valve clearances should be checked every 24 000km's, but the mechanic reckons every 10 000km's. Anyway, the valve clearances was adjusted, cam timing adjusted….and man, what a difference, like the day I first got my bike. So..just saying, if you.re close to Worcester, I always got very good service from them.
