Take it back. somethings not right.

They never use anything but Fred Flintstone balancing.

Talk to Wilma and smile...

Ya that's weird. I think trying a different tire might be the only option. Problem is you now have spacers that are messed up. Gonna have to replace them if they are too bad. Procycle in Eugene Oregon can get all that crap. The spacers aren't cheap though. $23 bucks for number 19.

TCI Products Skid plate

Has anyone used TCI Products skid plate? I like the side engine guards.

https://tciproductsusa.com/index.php...roducts_id=569

Has it held up good? Is it easy to R&R? Worth the money?

That is frickin expensive. Is it gold plated. I have the procycle one and it covers almost as much as that TCI one. At only $80.

how much are all the engine covers that have to be added to that $80 for the same protection?

that TCI might have saved my shift lever this weekend...

Maybe right. Case armor (which is sweet stuff), skid plate and spare shifter lever (which I always carry). All total about $180 from procycle. I don't know. The TCI thing may be the way to go, just seems a little high when you can get good protection and can include spares of stuff and still save $75

It's pretty rare ... but out of round or lop sided tires do happen on occasion.
Double check to make certain the tire is fully seated into the rim. Sometimes you need over 60 PSI to have it "Pop" and fully seat.

What kind of tire is it?

Both seats get good reviews here on this thread. I have a Corbin and it's good ... but I have no doubt the Sargent is probably just as good. Comfort and ergos are subjective. I'd ride a couple bikes with these seats and decide.

Is there any recommended interval to change (not just clean) the air filter on a 2005 DR650SE? I have 22,000 miles now and I'm not sure if the previous owner has ever changed the filter.

Any recommendations for 90% street 10% dirt?

Stock ($45)
Twin Air ($31)
Uni (25)
K&N ($47)
No-Toil ($22)

Ride it for an hour at about 16psi. Get some heat into it and then see what it looks like.
Sometimes they're deformed by the way they're strapped when shipped.

Good idea to change it out. Filter foam tends to crumble and begin to fall apart after years of use. As it breaks down, little particles can get sucked into carb as foam softens and dissolves.

The stock Suzuki filter probably is the longest lasting of the foam filters ... but for an '05, if original, I'd change it. I've had great luck with both UNI and Twin-Air filters. Not so much with K&N, which flow lots of air but let by some fine dirt. The Twin-Air and UNI flow a bit more air than the stock Suzuki filter.
