Welcome to the Club

Well Im an official member of the DR650 club. Picked up a 2000 model with 20k miles for $1800 in NJ. Its got some scratches, was laid down 2 owners ago, and needs to be cleaned up, but runs fine. I will be changing out the muffler...its got that Japanese one with the Japanese writing on it (Yosh...) I dont know I forgot the name right now... its way too loud of my tastes, will probably throw an FMF on there. It does backfire when you let the throttle go not sure if thats too lean or what?? Might need a battery, going to see how this one goes first. Already have a procycle wishlist in mind, starting with plastics and a bigger tank.

I have an idea for the seat, and will probably have a local guy do it, I want to make it like the KLR dual platform seat that corbin offers (http://corbin.com/kawasaki/klrhpyt.shtml)

Overall I'm happy, Only put 1 mile on her in Jersey just test riding it, but from what I felt, I'm certain I'm gonna like it!

Will post pics soon, as soon as the battery is charged and the plastics are back on

Service manual

Hey dudes - after extensive Google Wacking I've yet to find a fresh link for a DR service manual. I've got one but the site I got mine is down... and I'm trying to provide a link for a friend who needs one (my ISP won't do ~80 meg files...)

Anybody have an updated link or FTP site?

Those aftermarket versions have no taper and are overpriced.
One even has a tube jammed into the next size up..
The other has a washer with a small spigot to fit the stock header from the over size mid.
The Hindle has a nice taper...

Am I missing anything? If I go the Hindle route where is the best place to buy?
Don't get the Hindle.
It gets too close to the swingarm and melts the plastic clip that holds the brake line in place.

I think calling three size tubes pushed into each other with a filler weld is pushing the word taper.

Why does that pipe look like the bottom has been bashed in. ?

I guess at the end of the day use whats needed to get the job done,but no way was I going to pay "100 of dollars for one of those things.
You could do the same with U bends for pennies,even if you got someone else to weld it.
Any one can use a hacksaw. ?

I used the old supertrap pipe on my bike, cut the end and made a flange to go on it and bolted on the gsxr can. works great. cheaper than buying something, and way easier than building a whole new pipe. sounds way better now!

Cause it's been bashed in.

Even bashed in it hits the brake line retainer clip.

If you've got a Seat Concepts seat then have you noticed that it appears/feels lower when sitting up near the tank?

I'll probably give them a call tomorrow but wanted to get the general consensus from those in the know.

Thanks!
Hi svwayne,
The seat should not be any lower than the stock seat. It was molded off of a brand new unused seat, only changes on our end was to widen it for the extra comfort. No changes were made to the height.
Could you possibly have a seat that has been modified for height?
Feel free to call tomorrow. Hope this helps!

Thanks
Bundy

Good deal, just what you want, an inexpensive beat up bike for a low price, I did the same thing.
Been having a blast on it.

Where are you located, and what do you plan on doing with the bike?
If dirt riding down south, maybe I will see you on the trails....

Remember, you need the battery to start the bike, unless you have a bunch of people to push start the bike.....

Thanks for pointing out your service manual link (duh). Yep, it works great! Mine bike came with the factory manual, but now I'll have a PDF version to bring along on rides too.

I'm getting ready for a weekend ride out to Crater Lake. Just put in another ProCycle order last night for tank panniers and the front fender bag. I may be camping one of the two nights.

My TM40 was setup the same. I am just a few hundred feet above sea level. It worked fairly well with that setup (much better than the BST with DynoJet), but I felt it was running rich and fuel consumption wasn't great. I subsequently made several incremental changes until I ended up with my current setup:
135 main
17.5 pilot
needle clip 2nd notch from the top.

I've never touched the float height, but I did cover up a portion of the giant hole that I had cut in my airbox. Now, the intake sound is quieter, power delivery is awesome, and fuel consumption is terrific (48-49mpg in the city, and 52-55mpg on the highway). All of this with 14/43 gearing.

I also made a minor adjustment of the accelerator pump, backing it off a tiny bit so it doesn't kick in so early.
