I`ll have to strip the motor when i have time and find the cause, the oil and filter had been replaced the night before the ride and it lost no oil during the ride,i think the problem may have been oil pump related as the new filter had no sign of oil on it,will let you other dr owners know asap
Hmmm...... was the oil filter in the wrong way round? I didn't think this could be done with the DRZ engine....
Or was the scavenge level not checked prior to running? Mentioned in the oil change rpoceedure is a tell-tail level screw, and unless the fresh oil seeps from it when loosened, the engine should not be run.
You got me thinking on this one, so yes please do keep us posted.
And, I did here that CCM had a batch of 'E' engines to sell, not sure if they all went, but worth a call if your stuck.
