I struggled and struggled and got the carb off the DRZ. I was then too pissed off with it to work on it, so I went and cut the grass and threw out a load of the hay for the guinea pigs that they don't like.
When Vic got home, she said the "check engine" light was on. Great. I plugged in the ODBII reader, and found it was a problem with the evaporation system. The gas cap wasn't on tight.
