Dead spot on ZRT 600. What is it?

Dead spot on ZRT 600. What is it?

Post by Mark Wirt » Tue, 08 Feb 2000 04:00:00


I have a '98 ZRT 600 and after trail riding for 45 minutes or more it
develops a dead spot.  By that I mean when I hit the throttle slightly
calling for a little juice the motor does not respond, in fact it starts
to die out.  If I let off and hit it again the motor will respond.  This
seems to happen when I'm going slow and getting into and out of the
throttle frequently.  If I had to guess I would say it is gas related
rather than electrical.  Checked my plugs and they are clean and dry.
Anyone else experience this and have any insight for me.   Much
appreciated.

Mark,

Can you translate that to RPM or MPH ??

It might be that your float levels are off or your fuel pump needs a rebuild.
