But go for the 130 rear. The 120 is a bit too easy to use all the tread on the road just around town.

A 1998 with extras for $1500 is a lot better, esp if you run out and dump it in a mud hole....

The kenda k270 came in 3 inch and 3.25 inch sizes for the front, I got the 3.25 and would not mind a 3.5 in all the sand around here...

safari tank and spring weights

I pick my new DR650 up in the next few days and will be fitting the 30ltr safari tank. I know that I will also need to beef up the front and rear springs but not sure what spring weight to go for.
I'm around 80kg ( without riding gear), the bike will be used as daily transport as well as regular ADV trips with moderate/ light lugage set up.

I what to stick with linear rate springs and will also be fitting a set of ricor fork valves.
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.....

Got my tm40 today and installed it.
Not a great fit, the cables are a little off, the fuel line hits the choke cable pipe, the pump part hits the crankcase vent hose, but it does fit.

The only setting I changed was to drop the needle one position to 2nd from the top, and adjusted the pilot screw after the motor was hot.

The test ride was WOW!
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 suppose I will have to fine tune the jetting (main and needle) and see what the mpg is like.
Sea level, cut airbox, stock exhaust, twinair filter, think the 150 mainjet is ok?

That would be a very good out the door price for a brand new bike straight from the Suzuki dealer with full warranty, etc. Knock $800 off of that price and you would be in the ballpark of a good (not great) deal.

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.

Rob

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!
