I've seen Kubiak's bike with a Pirelli MT60 160/60R17, looks awesome of course. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/gar...chmentid=59560

After losing spark
How can I tell what it needs?

Multimeter type thing?

I have the wiring diagram.
Do I just start checking every wire?

already bypassed the side stand switch

swapped plugs

battery is fully charged


maybe just a different bike (DL650, 640ADV, ??? )


or

Pack it up and dump it at the mechanic's shop?

1st thing to check/clean is the kill switch.

2nd thing to check is the CDI, they do fail on these bikes fairly frequently, especially on the older ones. Sometimes you can get it to temporarily come back to life by giving it a whack.

3rd thing to check is the coil.

4th thing to check is the spark plug boot and wire. Make sure the wire didn't get pulled out a bit in the boot, making it lose contact.

I had a starting problem on my L last year and found it was the pulse generator. It's also probably the easiest thing to check. You can check the resistance of it at the connector that runs along the downtube/oil reservoir. I don't remember the specification for it, but mine tested as an open circuit.

I'm trying to decide to keep the read fender and add the enduro tailight, or swap to a CRF fender and do an undermount light and plate holder. Decisions decisions!

Black CRF450 front fender from Cycle Gear - $19.99

Black Krylon Fusion spray paint from WalMart - $5

seat cover and tank graphics for an XR600R from West Coast Graphics via eBay - $53.00 (or something close with shipping)

had seat cover installed with new closed cell foam by upholsterer -$25.00

MSR bars came with a crossbar pad in the exact same colors (coincidence...had no idea I was choosing those colors at the time)


Side panels are not taking spray paint well at all. The headlight cowl went smoothly and easily. But I've cleaned the side panels with acetone, ammonia, and sanded them with 220 grit, then 800 grit sand paper. There are a bunch of spots where the paint just runs right off, will not stick. I resanded those spots and tried again...paint just won't stick. I stuck the side panels back on and said the hell with it for now. I'll get back to that problem when I regain some patience.

Those look good. Ride it like you stole it.

F9 if you get another bike you will have problems to figure out with it too. Every bike I ever owned gave me something to figure out at one time or another. Be patient, get a multimeter and a manual and do some troubleshooting. Very few $$ to do and eventually you will figure out the issue. The link you posted would be a good place to start.

Plus there are some really smart people right here to help. If you get a different bike you will have to go to a new thread and get denoobed all over again

Good luck with it.

John

Might keep you from becoming father10

I'd start with Northern Dogs suggestion and add the pulse generator to the list. I have my spare engine torn down awaiting parts. I could send you the pulse generator to swap into yours if you want to try it.
