Submarine TTR

Great Post

My son Drowned his TTR 110 on the weekend - half submerged the bike in water..

As per the post below - it only runs on CHOKE now.
The spark plug is dry and the air intake is dry

"If it only runs on choke or when you rev it, it is a blocked pilot jet or water. If it does not rev out it could be a blocked main jet, float problem or the clip of the needle could have come off."

How do I drain the fuel bowl on the carby ?

Thanks

Marc

Some carbs have a small screw right at the bottom to drain the float bowl.
I can't remember if the TTR110 has one.
If not, there's a large (~17mm?) nut on the bottom of the carb, that'll drain it real quick.

Yep, click HERE

And loosen screw #10.

Though that might not solve your problem.

Good post keg, but you missed the important first step: Tow it up and down the street behind your cousin's VN.

Yep, we see a lot of $3000 jobs that could have been $1000 jobs if they had of brought the bike in for repair instead of towing it.

That did the job perfectly

Loosened the screw. water flowed out , let it run a bit of extra fuel

Started and ran first time perfectly

Cheers

Good one. I actually did that after I drowned my XL500. It took 1.5 kilometres before it actually started. Came close to running it up the backside of my then nearly new Magna when it fired

That was after I changed the oil, cleaned the spark plug, kicked the engine over with the spark plug removed until it stopped spraying water out the hole & drained the carby.

Once I had it running I had to change the oil a second time as it had gone milky again.

I switched the engine off before it could suck in a gutload of water too as I did not want to deal with a bent or broken con rod.

Help, have an 2009 KTM 400exc that likes to stop in the middle of the bush on random occasions, checked for spark and none found. Get the bike home and the bike has spark and runs like a dream. Intermittent fault somewhere, can anyone help? no idea were to start.
