Back in the Saddle again
Posted February 15, 2002 - 07:50 PM
I am glad to be back in the saddle and mention I'm a proud father of a spanking 2002 WR 426 to ring in the new year with.
I'd like to invite anyone in my area (Central Cal.) to hook up to twist grips some time AND I have a Question I'd like to ask the forum gurus here.
I find my '02 426 pours substantial fuel on the ground (from one of the many clear overflow hoses )when laying it way down but not on the ground. (handle grip is about a foot from the ground. Is this normal every time the bike goes far over but not down? As I don't remember my '99 WR400 having this "feature"
Thanks guys for the forum and Thank you Bryan for starting something that blossomed into more than you knew back then.

My girlfriend has a similar problem, but she tips over frequently.
Seriously, carburetored engines have a float that controls the fuel level in the float bowl. When it gets tipped over too far, the fuel runs out because the needle valve doesn't close properly.

Calif. is so big I need to clarify my QTH a little better.
I am at the Southern base of Yosemite N'tnl Park by about a half an hour.
Sequoia N'tnl Park is 'bout South East of here. I ride the Sierra Nevadas 99% of the time, the other 1% is just be-boppin' the canal banks along the foothills and valley floor or the track I 'made' in an ajacent field.
Thanks guys and happy trails....
