DRZ - Blues :(

To Summarize,

2014 DRZ400e
4000k
Well Serviced

Bike winds over on button and seldom starts cold, might start warm.
Will clutch start hot or cold

Runs pretty good once running

Last service and valve check was reported valve almost out of adjustment, but that didn't change when they had it open.

Is it likely to be a valve or compression issue.

I do ride it hard, but I also over do the oil change and air filter change.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Cheers Mick

These things will do 40,000km with no valve regression Mick. Either you're revving the arse out of it (sustained highway work?) or it has a valve/head issue.

At 4,000km it'd be worth contacting Suzuki direct to see if they'll take its hat off and have a look.

Also, dismantle and blow out the carb, FCRs have very small air passages, especially behind the PAJ which supplies bypass air for the SJ.
