Oh, it's definitely the right screw.
The idle mixture screw we put in the jet kit comes with its own longer spring and a new oring and washer. If you try to use the stock spring you probably won't have any tension on the screw.

I noticed right away that the shape was a little different. but installed anyway. After test and tune time, my first ride out with a friend of mine, I stopped after a few miles and the bike died. I started it back up and died again. fired it up and it would rev and stuff but would not idle...... my friend noticed that the extended screw had fallen out and luckily was laying perilously between the starter and the head. I rode back home and checked everything out and ended up puttin the oem screw back in as it fit more securely. the depth of the oring seating area was too deep on the aftermarket one and would not hold the screw in with tension because of this. anybody else have this issue???
I also had problems with the 'extended fuel screw'; I found I could not get it to fully seat, without using pliers to screw it fully in; therefore, I could not get the right amount of turns when I backed it out . I thought this a bit risky, as I might strip the thread from the housing, so I switched back to the OEM screw, which appears to wind in without as much resistance as the Ext fuel screw.
Because I could not get the 'Extended Fuel Screw' to seat properly, in meant that I could not be sure on the amount of turns out the screw was.... ie: what I thought was 2 turns out, in reality may have been 3 or 4.

Runs fine with the OEM screw, was always rough with the EFS.

I just put it down to a bad batch of EFS, so have stuck with the OEM screw. (Being in Australia, the cost of postage, negates the return of such a small item)

cheers

You have a different idle mixture screw. The one pictured a few posts back is the "Kouba" screw which was originally a Keintech product. It has about 2 or 3 additional screw threads which sometimes have difficulty screwing into the 'unused' internal threads in the carburetor. The screw included in the jet kit is a genuine Mikuni part which has a longer shaft which eliminates the occasional problem with the 'virgin threads'. But it does require the longer spring that comes with it.

petcock

I picked up a 2006 DR650SE bone stock with 4500 miles last week. It rode great and I'm pleased with it. Got it home and topped off tank and inadvertently put petcock selector swith on PRI so most of the gas ran out. I switched it over to RUN position and gas is still dripping. Any suggestions?? Only other position is RES.

Get a petcock called a Raptor from Procycle that you can shut the gas off. It is a Yamaha petcock that will fit the DR tank, that has a off position. The stock DR petcock can't be shutdown.

The stock petcock can be disassembled, cleaned and lubed which will likely fix the leakage. Many riders prefer to replace the vacuum operated stock petcock with the Raptor style petcock.

Where did the fuel exit from?

An interesting aside on the extended fuel screw in my write up. It is out of a spare TM 33 pumper for my DR350. I looked at it pretty carefully before installing it because I had no idea if it would work or not. It visually matched the stock screws taper and length. Its been in there a couple thousand miles now and I havent had to adjust it after getting it set. I even used my OEM spring and o-ring as they were brand new.

Davis53 and Procycle- Thanks, I thought I'd previously seen something about that but did not remember the particulars. I'll check it out. Two more tanks came with the bike- One (the OEM) only had one tank of fuel put through it before PO bought a yellow one and put it on it. I just noticed the OEM does have a petcock on it.

Motolab, Where is gas coming from? Have not had an opportunity to "Really" look at it and figure it out- its been bad cold and I haven't wanted to mess with it outside, which is where the leaking fuel is making the bike sit.

I've had numerous folks tell me that it may be running into the crankcase but according to the sight glass on the side of the crankcase there has been no rise in the level of oil/fluid in the crankcase.

This is what I would do:
1. Adjust Fuel/Air Pilot screw OUT (rich) about 1 turn
2. Turn up Idle (one full turn on idle adjuster) Lower idle once fully warm.
3. Try to store bike indoors if possible.
4. Use 0-40 synthetic oil if possible.
5. Shorai batts need to "warm up" ... so turn on headlight for two minutes before attempting to start bike. Seems counter intuitive but supposedly works.
6. You could take a 1500 Watt hair dryer and run it onto the Carb for 5 minutes before start up. (if that's practical). Carbs like HEAT!
7. If not already done ... cover your bike!
Hello,

Not a DR yarn but good. In New York City.
Few years ago read in Airhead magazine that a guy with a /2 was riding to work and back in freezing weather.
Bike would start good in am as was in his garage. Starting, later in the day to go home was a bitch, most times getting a push. One day he was passing by outside of the building and felt warm air. Well he worked on the stage for Julia Childs TV show and that was the vent to the outside. Next day when he got to work he parked in front of the vent and when he went to go home his bike was warm. Started right up. Kept parking there all during taping. A little twist to the story is one day he met some friends and the were all asking what smelled so good? Seems that all of the air and now his bike was loaded with Julias cooking! He said he had the worlds BEST smelling bike.

Your oil level NOT rising is a good sign. Although there is room for anything to fail, it's much more llikely that I'll forget to turn the aftermarket petcock off than it is for the stock petcock to fail. if my stocker does fail, I'll buy another stock one.

I just have to put the new grips on (Renthal dual compound, half waffle), but I have a few n00b questions:
  1. Is there any special trick with applying the grip glue, or do you just smear it on and push the grips home?
  2. Is there any special trick with putting the Bark Busters back on the left grip, or do you just cut a hole in the end of the grip?
  3. Based on the pic below, does the 'waffle' on the right hand side point to the front of the bike, or the back, or somewhere else?

1. I don't use grip glue. I use oil. The grip is made of rubber and the oil means you can slide the grip on and then the rubber absorbs the oil and it's on there solid. Never had to lockwire a grip in my life.

2. Once the grips are on use a rubber mallet on the end of the bar and the bar will punch through the grip like a cookie cutter.

3. I would think the waffle bit lines up with your palm.

Be sure to check your air box and filter.

I only use wire. Much more convenient.

DR650 petcock

Went out and eyeballed the sight glass in the sunshine a few minutes ago. No visible bubble in sight glass. SOOOOooooo looks like some fuel may have made it in there. Took spark plugs out and turned motor over and gas shot out of spark plug holes. Off to get some oil as soon as I figure out what oil to get so I can change it and will take petcock off of extra tank that came with bike and see if it works.
