We have removed all the filters and even cleaned out the tank, stripped the carb but still same issue. Its almost as if it is running out of fuel.
He will have to test it again and if it still does the same I think we will have to change the jetting.
When in doubt, flat out!!!

I had a problem where I would go full throttle , the DR would give a Swallow/ hiccup (it would lose power) and then immediately backfire and then carry on picking up speed (sometimes 2 or 3 time in a row). We thought it was a carburetor/fuel issue (maybe still is?)
I took the bike to Rocket Racing and they say it was the kickstand switch , but right after i got the bike back , I broke down with no fuel coming out of the tank. Problem is there was still more than enough fuel to switch over to Reserve (so i can only drive on primary , wasting the bottom half of my tanks fuel ). There maybe a problem with my fuel tap ? It seems like a small issue , just need to figure out what. ( I don't know if the side kickstand repair did the trick i will have to ride the bike properly 1st).


I had a similar issue with my DR losing power with full throttle... eventually discovered that there was a small in-line fuel filter inside the
curved fuel intake pipe of the carburetor that was clogged. Removed the filter entirely and problem solved! N

Thanks @NickTheGreek  , Will try and check all the points between the tank and the carb again , like @DJLSteenkamp  mentioned we did check this before , but don't know if we missed anything , maybe similar to your issue , but i am suspecting the fuel tap switch. at the moment.

It will be quick to check the fuel tap. Put the bike on its side and take it off. Check that the rubber diaphragm inside is not broken or misaligned. possibly restricting flow as well as not opening up the reserve side. (there should also be 2 little plastic filters. long one for normal flow and short one for reserve.

Yep,Thanks for always stirring  the pot @DJLSteenkamp  ...  :pot:
Fractured my  Left thumb / scaphoid after I messed up a steap(ish) uphill at the High Stakes Bike track at Cato ridge (the 4x4 area not the actual track part) .
had to get a operation and insert wire to correct it. Now the wait begins for the thumb to heal  :'(
Pictures:
Ignore the red circle , after the doctor explained to me again ,apparently it's worse than just that area (i put it there). They had to insert wire in the operation to fix where the bone and the joint meet (or something like that ?) Not too sure either way , i went today for a checkup , healing is going well at least for now  :biggrin:


After the Op:


And yes the bike is ok , just a few scratches on the front fender and fork. The bike fell on top of me , so technically i broke the bikes falls and in turn i broke my finger (LOL) .

Thanks for sticking with me this far if people are still reading  :thumleft:
Cheers :sip:

Jammer  , Dinge was still nadat ek my duim gebreek het , en ek kon toe nie saam @DJLSteenkamp  lesotho toe gaan nie.
Ek het laas saterdag bietjie in Durban rond gery net om weer op die seat te kom.
Ek sal een of ander tyd my Luggage plate op sit, en dan dalk een naweek gaan kamp by `n dam Írens :)
Nogal lus vir so iets  :drif:

Ek het Duim se Scaphoid gebreek ,  hulle het dit in operasie reg gemaak met 2 penne , wat hulle uitgehaal het terwyl ek wakker was (moerse eina daai) .
 Hys veronderstel om 100% te wees volgens die doktor  , maar ek kan nie so sÍ nie , as ek iets te swaar probeer vas hou dan begin hy nogal redelik pyn. Weet of dit normaal is , en dat dit weg gaan met tyd nie ?

dis nie baie mooi van hulle nie   :eek7:

Ek dink dit sal beter raak met tyd   :thumleft:
Na n "off" in 2016 was my duim ook effens gewax, nie operasie nodig gehad nie, maar kon nie eens n glas water optel nie   :lol8:
Het so 6maande gevat om te herstel.

Doen jy fisio, of ander duim oefening  >:D    :lol8:
