The DR is slowly being bought out of storage. Last week I pulled the carb and gave it a good cleanout as it had some residue which was stopping the float valve from closing, today I did the valve clearances.

Stuff your bucket and shims, this is how valve adjustment should be.

The plugs were a little black, I suspect it’s a little rich at low throttle openings.
