2002 wr426 stalling, bogging, generally unhappy
Posted May 18, 2008 - 09:29 AM
The stall was generally happening at idle; as I would put it in gear and give the throttle a twist the bike would bog down and stall. It also happened while heading up steep hills. I would make a corner then give it some throttle and bog..stall.
Any ideas what this could be? I bumped the idle speed up which seemed to help a little but it didn't take care of the problem. It was also a real PIA to start when this was happening..heck of a time finding tdc and required constant use of the hot start valve.
It's worth mentioning that the temp was in the mid to upper 80's here in the Northwest. I rode two weeks ago (same place) with the temps in the high 50's low 60's and the bike ran flawless.http://www.thumperta...es/excuseme.gif
Could this be something in the idle circuit on the carb? Bad accelerator pump? Poor jetting? Did I drown my air cleaner in oil with recent maintenance? Any ideas or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Any ideas out there? I am wondering if it could be the jetting (stock 2002 wr 426)

I checked the air filter.. Over oiling was a bit of wishful thinking.
Thanks again guys..

Wow, that must have been a LOT of oil!!!!
hate to say this, but i over oiled it to the point there was oil in the bottom of the air box
felt like a jackass, when i realized i betcha i didn't sqeeze the excess off..

I squeezed off the excess in the parking lot the day it happened. And there was a little puddle in the airbox... Usually the most obvious reason is the culprit, so maybe I'll get lucky But then again, I was due for a re-jet from stock and carb cleaning anyway..
