You have to be careful with the throttle or the wheel comes right up.
There seems to be a lot of power available instantly, at almost any rpm.
I keep reading about all this extra power with the TM40. Whack the throttle and the wheel comes up, etc, etc.
I bought mine from Procycle. Didn't touch the jetting and have yet to experience all this extra power. K&N filter, cut air box, ground weld on pipe, GSXR slip-on but where is this extra power that everyone's talking about?

You must of skimmed those posts. You have to bolt the new carb to a KTM.

I don't know, but it was crazy what it did to my bike.
I almost lost it as I gassed it in a turn out of my driveway and the wheel came up....INSTANT throttle response, plus the big hole in the airbox which used to be very restrictive.

I got the bike stock, and thought it had good power (for what I am used to).
Pulled the snorkel and it had even more power, drilled the slide and shimmed the needle and it had much better throttle response.
Cut the airbox a bit, and it had a bad bog with full throttle and low/mid revs, a BAD bog (too lean). Put some of the airbox back in, but it was lean and top speed was down. That is how I know the airbox is so restrictive, just a slightly larger hole and it went lean big time.

Put the tm40 on, cut out the airbox full size, fit a twinair filter and almost lost it twice on the test ride.
I did not test the top speed yet, last time I did carb/speed tests locally I got 4 tickets! I do know it revs out nicely.

I can tell I am going to have to recalibrate my throttle wrist.
The wheel comes right up in 1st (stock gearing) and I think it does a bit in 2nd also.

Now the power will likely be the same with both carbs all other things being equal, that is, air box and jetting, but I doubt the throttle response would ever be as good with a CV carb, even if its modified and set real rich.

I got my tank panniers and front fender toolbag from ProCycle today. The tank bags are "ATV Logic" and are of decent quality. They fit okay, but to keep your knees from hitting them, you need to be sure they hang as far forward as possible. Since I have the IMS tank, I went ahead and stuck the velcro to the tank, since I know it won't stay for too long. :)

The fender bag is of nice quality, but is smaller than I thought. Also, I'm not confident that it will stay on the front fender. Besides, the extra weight really makes the fender wiggle, so I'm worried about it cracking it. I've relocated the bag to just behind the seat, between it and the OEM rack. It fits pretty well there and with my Givi box on the back, you barely even notice it.

I should have gotten photos, but it's dark out now so I'll get some tomorrow.

There were no 2010's in Calif.....I bought my 09 a year ago Monday, and now the dealer is waiting on the '11's. They've seen no '10's.

Some time soon we expect to have a stainless steel front fender brace.
I want to make sure you don't run out of things to buy!

I have the IMS tank, .50's and the 8.3 but I'm 230 (104 kg). It's pretty stiff with me on it but I can ride it hard when I want without mashing it.

Call Jeff at Procycle....he was a great help with deciding which way to go.

Gerbing Jacket Liner

2009, new 3/10, 2100 miles, stock.
Tried out my new Gerbing jacket liner with thermostat on my 4 a.m. commute this morning. 55 indicated in 4th gear, thermostat set to about 1/3 power. Headlight dims and brightens in 2 or 3 second intervals. Connections tight. Running through my battery tender hookup. 7.5 amp fuse per directions.
Is this normal on the DR?

Suzuki didn't make any 2010 model year motorcycles, FYI...


Procycle:

SWEET!! I was thinking of making one, but if you're coming up with one, I'll wait. Awesome.

I still want to order a set of those Solstice LED lights, but I'm out of $$ now. :)

I 'm currently looking at the procycle 8.3 kg rear spring and eibach .50kg front but i am a little concerned that this may be too heavy so i would weclome your collective advice

cheers
Scary.....
.50 is probably too stiff in the front. For your weight, even with the Safari tank, .45 would be fine. Your back spring is too much as well - something closer to 7.4 kg would be better ...

But go to the professionals for advice - If you call Procycle, or Rick at Cogent, they'll steer you to the right springs for your weight, riding style and gear set up.

Working on a trade...

I'm potentially trading my 2004 CBR 600 F4I for a 2000 dr650 tomorrow. However I was just talking to the guy w/ the bike and he happened to mention that there is a small leak that just showed up. I'm wondering if it's the gasket issue mentioned @ the beginning of the thread. Should I be freaked out? Should I let it hold me back? It only has 4900 miles on it?

I wouldn't worry too much about the leak, especially if it's the base gasket. A lot of people have sealed them without replacing them. I will do that to mine if it starts leaking (knock on wood) as a stop-gap measure until I have the time to replace it.

Is this an even trade you're working on or is there cash involved? I would use the leak to my advantage if possible. :)

The way the Ricor fork valves work they will actually function better if they are not paired with too stiff a spring. So I'd recommend .47 with the Intiminators or go with .50 springs if you decide to run Race Tech Emulators.

I have .50's in the forks and an 8.1 on the shock. Racetech Emulators in the forks and had Sasquatch slow down the rebound on the shock. I am 195 lbs and it's like butter.

Maybe you've got a funky Heat Troller unit? Gerbing sold some real crap one for a while. Not sure what they sell now. Is your stuff all new?

The original Heat Troller (from Warm & Safe) cycles ON /OFF. It is a Pulse- width modulator. Most of the good ones work this way. So that could be what you're seeing with the headlight.
OR ...Could be a bad Troller/Reostat/Thermostat??

OR .... your battery is low or worn out. (easy to do on the DR650)
I use my Gerbing a lot, never noticed dimming headlight. Could also be your regulator/rectifier.

Try plugging the Gerbing directly in, by-pass the reostat. Any dimming? Don't run this way, jacket will be less efficient and battery may go down.
