I don't know that. I see too much idiotic crap like the DR's upper chain roller, and the inappropriate gearboxes used for most dualsports.

Yeah no problems it was about $585.00 which is about $200 cheaper than you can get it from Austraila. $US335 for the seat and $US80 postage. I took it for a 30 km ride yesterday before work and man it felt bloody good
Send Janet or Jessie a email and they will sort you out.

Cheers

What is the pilot screw setting. The manual says 1 & 1/2 turns. I suppose its turning it in all the way, then 1 & 1/2 turns back out?

Now, lets say its not the carb that is giving the problem, what do I check next? (have checked the screen thing at the intake and I don't have one left).


If you don't have an inline fuel filter put one in. Check your tank for dirt - you might be surprised how much gets in there.

"What are you doing....Dave?" Sorry, we have this local Windhoek ad on TV and everytime I see or hear the name Dave it pops into my head. Well its probably not just local considering:

I was looking at my fuel filter on the shelf in a plastic tub last night and thought about putting one in. I did it with my 250 Djebel, so why not the DR650.

Will do so, thanks.

Right, it runs, but with throttle. Got the carb cleaner, only as I opened it, its the pour type and not the spray type. So no proper cleaning tonite.

From my deductions of the slow system and the main system, I have a problem with the slow system. The one jet I couldn't get out was the air-inlet jet.

Where do I get new jets, standard jets other than at the dealer, new jets, and seals? A service kit I suppose with jets, needle and pilot screw?

good move.
the 350 and the 650 have little weight diff, so you get good bang for your 'buck' of those extra ponies
