I think you will have to make something yourself if ya want lower cost than that.
I made a homemade top rack from scrap metal and a cutting board. Just added stainless steel drawer handles to attach a bag.

Fart noise

Sometimes just after i shutdown, i get a "fart" sound out of my muffler. is this just some sort of compression realease. or should i be worried that the bike has "bad gas"?

sounds like a build up of carbon in the cylinder causing an ignition source or i think incorrect timing can cause the same thing

DR Experts,

I have begun having hot starting problems with my '03 DR650SE and am unsure where to look for the problem. It starts from cold perfectly but the only way I've gotten it to re-start hot is by pinnning the throttle wide open and it takes 10 secconds of cranking & slowly catching to start.

I checked the plugs and they were clean but not a dry tan color that I'm used to seeing. Not fouled at all though. I leaned it out some (have the extended kientech mixture screw) and that made no difference. I don't think it is either switch (clutch/sidestand) because it does start but only if I have a fully charged battery.

It is jetted/airbox opened up/K&N filter w/ kientech foam pre-filter and has run like a champ ever since doing that work, until now.

It is possible that the fuel is boiling/vapor lock? Not sure why that would suddenly show up though?

Any ideas what to look at next?

Some of the bikes seem to do this when hot and low on gas. Filling the tank will cure the problem if that is what is causing it.

A full tank didn't help, unfortunately.

I'd check with Hessler's in Germany. They carry a lot of accessories for the DR650...
