Hot Start failure - dirt in engine
Posted November 26, 2007 - 11:37 AM
I already have the Zip-Ty replacement, but what else can I do to prevent further damage? My thoughts were clean the carb and flush the oil 2-3 times. Should I be worried? I'm wondering how much dirt could get sucked past the plunger. Thanks

You have already got the replacement Zipty nut...good. When you replace the hotstart plunger put a light coating of grease on it to help seal it and also to lubricate it's movement.
Aside from the obvious measures that you have mentioned of cleaning out the carb and changing the oil a couple times there isn't really anything else that should be necessary. Double check the fit of your air filter to the airboot...it sounds like some of the newer WR's are having an issue of the filter cage not allowing the filter to seat completely but I don't know if that was an issue with your model year...which brings up a good point, I don't even have a WR, only a YZ, so why am I in here? Just a bike-whore I guess.
