Cam chain tensioner, or oil line.

Not unknown for the tensioners to leak it seems, and not too hard to fix.

Get engine to TDCC and remove. Remove cap, unwind tensioner until it locks. Assemble with a new gasket after cleaning surfaces, or bog up what you have with sealant. Unlock tensioner and replace cap.

I would like to verify

Choke on or close the choke means pulling the lever(pulling the knob on other bikes) correct?

It's not too hard to fix, but make sure you understand what you need to do. Some time ago C2C4C killed his cam chain doing it wrong.

I did the Moose bearings once and have since decided that the OEM Zuki bearings are better for me. Just remove the seals from the old bearings and double seal the OEM bearings.

No local Zuki dealer, in Fla? I thought that state was bumper to bumper tourists. Sure, they lasted to the next tire change. But once the ????? were in my head, I decided not to use them again. Bike Bandit and Ron Ayers are two favorites.

Edit: Pick Bike Bandit, Ayers waited a week to send me parts; waiting on something petty (don't remember).

Moose and suzuki dont make bearings; they buy them from someone else. Take the old bearings to a bearing supply house and ask for quality replacements. They should be able to set you right up.

Edit: I have an account with Applied Bearings but I think they sell to the public too. They have several locations and it has never taken more than 2 days to get stuff.

Yep.
Yeah, I actually don't understand what I need to do and don't want to kill my cam chain. More research I guess. I will start by ordering the seal.

^^^ these three lines are the total number of bearings you need to order, i.e. you need two of the size 6003, etc.

The seals that my bearing house had were a bit taller than the original Suzuki seals so I ordered my seals directly from Suzuki (at Babbitt's On Line IIRC).

Thanks Eakins for sharing you're Ricor Install. I put the intiminators and springs in yesterday as well as a new rear spring. I know you are supposed to make one shock change at a time, but when I had it torn open, I put Race Tech springs in. :)

Oh great and knowledgeable DR650 thread readers...

I have an odd electrical problem, and I am wondering if I can get any input. My bike has a bad connection someplace. When I turn the key to the "on" position, the headlight comes on. I then press the starter, an audible "click", and nothing. All the power goes away. I seem to be able to get the power back by wiggling the wiring harness here... circled in red.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

I have tightened the battery screws, and visually inspected everything (there are no obvious problems). The battery is new and in great shape, seems to have full power. Anyone have any experience with this? Can you point me to any common failure in this area? The problem was very intermittent, but seems to be getting worse.

BTW - that's not my bike. Just a photo from the internets. If it is yours, I appreciate your eye... it's really hard to find a picture of a DR650 from this side!

Side Stand safety switch wiring goes in that area. Possible problem with the plug at the top of that wiring lead or the switch it's self.
