Suddenly need to use hot start...
Posted September 05, 2003 - 07:09 AM
This isn't really a big deal (as long as it doesn't get worse), and it may be contributable to the hotter weather I have been riding in lately, but I just thought I would ask if anyone has had the same experience.

Also, I don't ride at those extreme elevations... 25,000'? (I know, just a typo)

This happenend to me with my 01 WR426... While your at it, clean out your carb really well and replace your plug, after this service your bike should run like new...
It's not jetting, bikes don't just "all the sudden" start to run bad because of jetting. I can ride my bike in the snow or low desert and it'll still runs perfect..
Good luck, Dan

Damn, I love TT. Just got a PM, seems another TTer is already on his way to my house with some cold beer to adjust my valves for me! Can it get any better?!
oldbones, let me know if this fixes it. I have an 01 WR 426 and your scenario is identical to mine. I'm curious.

Nah, from talking to a few folks, this sounds like it may be the problem. I am also sure that the hot weather is contributing a bit, usually ride in the 60's and 70's, not the mid 80's!
We are supposed to dive into it Sunday morning, will let you know how it goes!

Next time we start on the bike before we move on to the beer. We met up around 5:00 last night, had a beer. Went for a cruise on the boat, had a beer (maybe two). Came back to the house, had a beer (maybe three). So, about 11:00 Brandon says "are you ready to start on your valves?". Uh, no.
Funny thing though, this morning he wasn't so gung-ho about working on the bike! Wonder why that was, maybe ate too many pancakes...
Brandon and Kendra should be just sitting down in their fancy seats at Seahawk Stadium, ready to witness the Saints go marching out. Go HAWKS!
Irazu, it was nice to meet you and Eunice. We should get together one of these days for a ride. Street or dirt, either should be fun. I really do wanna see you dual-sport that bimmer though!
Later guys, had a great time.

Figures that the one time I get to go out on the water this year I get to witness summer switch off like a light and turn to the wet stuff. Oh well such is life in the PNW
Hey had fun with you, Tanya, Brandon and Kendra.
Lets plan a north cascades trip some time soon and when I get back from my trip lets do some local stuff on the dirt.
BTW I want to see you wheelie that Cruser --
And great story about the cop -- what was it again "Hey how do you get that hog on one wheel? I cant seem to do it on mine!"
You should have told him -- give me a free get out of jail card and I'll tell you how its done.

Too much fun to have, not enough time. It kinda stunk for Seattle to have 51 days of 70+ degree temps, and the day we all get together, the rainclouds roll in, and we get a shower.
I had a great time getting together with you saps, and if we all get together for a street ride, Kendra and I are gonna need race gas in our 400's!
