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.


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.

I have to agree with Travelguy. Disabling that switch (removed it) was the first this I did to my DR. You have to make a connection across the plug after you remove it. I think I just cut the wire off the switch and twisted it together and plugged the old connector back in.

Could be the lead to the starter from the battery too.

Side stand switch is always number one check though.

I've seen new batteries with a bad cell in them, especially the cheaper ones. In a situation like this step one is always to get the battery load tested to be SURE it is good. Then trouble shoot from there.

Taller riders....how is the DR

How are the DR ergonomics for taller riders? (6'3" here). How about for stand up riding offroad?

bad- Im 6'2" and I added a 1" riser adapter for the bars and Pro Taper High Bars. My legs are a little tight too, I want to find some foot peg lowering brackets. Then it would be perfect! :)

Procycle has the best lowered pegs. Other companies sell a relocating bracket which hangs below the frame. I have a tall seat from seat concepts which is great and I plan on running a 1.5 in Rox riser that allows fore and aft adjustment as well as giving height. With these mods it will fit tall folks easy. Im 6'2" and I love the fit.
