    DV26 Dumpvalve problems

    Hi Guys

    Recently, I put in 2.2 airbox conversion and been running sweet since...the dumpvalve was quite loud still...today, it seems not to be working much...its very quiet...when i listen closely, its buzzing and leaking oil a bit...any ideas how come it could have gone so quiet?

    Sounds like your bumpvalve might be sticking, take it apart and clean up all the moving parts, then give lubricate it with some light oil or wd40.

    Also while its apart have a look at the rubber seals, they can sometimes break up so might need changing.

    It's a really simple dumpvalve, not many moving parts, just be careful when you undo the allen key bolts in the top, hold it tightly together as the spring tries to force the casing apart and you dont want it flying off in your face!

    have you got a metal power pipe?
    if so you can fit a battery to 'bung' it up for a day or so cause they said it take about 24-48 hours to turn it round
