So it was my turn today to have my 2009 drz 400sm die.
Had just switched to reserve on the way to a gas station and bam no power no gas nothin ..just dead.
No oil leaks no visible damage so tried to start and no go.
Put bike in gear and pushed and still seems to have some compression cant say how much compared to normal as I have never push started this bike.
Hope I didn't drop a valve or bust a cam chain?
I did halfheartedly try to bump start it and it sounds a bit like a compressor.
Not sure what to think.
My mechanic is out of town and I don't have time to deal with it so it will have to wait till next week before I can even find out whats going on.
I am hoping it is something in the carb that let go but I did notice some areas on the lower right case seem cracked like a bad paint job flaking off but nothing is broken and no real grinding when cranking over.
Anyway the hard part now is trying to sleep and not think about what may have let go inside the engine.
I was eventually going to rebuild and upgrade but was hoping to get more than 14k on one of these engines,I have only put 5k on it myself.
