watch out it can fairly mess with the packing in your silencer.

I had a d*!k head of a mate who used to do it with his car, every time he did it a big chunk of smoldering packing would fly out of the exhaust.

I'm tempted to remove the switch while I'm in there. Will it come out at this point or am I going to have to pull the clutch basket?

Thanks for taking the time to post the pics.

All you need is a small air impact to pop the clutch off. Put in some longer bolts after cleaning the case and loctiting the bolts and your done. Not too sure about running it with one screw holding it in place.

Does the stock exhaust have packing?

Nope,all metal baffles. Probably not the best thing for the bike to make it backfire though. My old BMW does it when the points are dirty.

Well, I pick her up tonight...an 08 Blue DR650SE.

So now I need some help on what everybody thinks the best mods for the buck are. Short term it won't see any heavy duty off road, but it will see some.

I read all sorts of different mods that are common. Suspension, Air Box, Skids, etc... Can somebody give me a link to the air box mod? I can't seem to find a good one.

I plan on skids and upgraded hand guards in the near future. Maybe taking down the front sprocket by a tooth, but I will see how it goes for now.

Tell me what you think should be on my list.

Another quick question...if I search sites by my model of bike for accesories, it doesn't list anything. I am guessing because it is new?? Will an 08 fit the same accesories as an 06?

When you're shopping for mods, they are pretty much all the same from '96 to this year's model.

Go to kientech.com for a picture of the airbox mod. Keep in mind tho, that the airbox mod is best done with a jet kit. The stock needle profile doesn't work easily with an opened up airbox. Best first step with the carb is to yank the snorkle from the airbox, shim up the needle ~.040" and unplug the pilot screw so you can dial in the idle mix. Search the thread for carb needle shim or some such and you should find lots of info.

Check out the Wiki page http://dr650.wikia.com/wiki/Main_Page for a good overview of what to do with the new toy.

not a problem. The switch will come right out if you wish. You don't have to touch the basket. You might want to get a hex head bolt for the top screw and keep the switch. It's a pretty quick job once you get going..MAKE SURE YOU PLUG THE OVAL HOLE AT THE BOTTOM WITH A RAG BEFORE YOU UNDO ANYTHING!!
