i use one of those too w/ an ims tank. does not cover the fuel cap.
i think the GL fandango tank bag is better however.

the enduro is really small to be able to work w/ the fuel cap whereas the fanadango has a cutout and zipper base for this issue.

not so.

the 1520 which is the size most use. here's dales again:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=146117
weigh 8.3 lbs each so 16.6 lbs or 4.4 lbs more than your quoted MS paniers weight.
http://www.pelican.com/cases_detail_specs.php?Case=1520

since the dr is no waif to start 4.4 extra lbs is worth it for the most bomber cases in the biz. there is a reason why the military & police forces worldwide use pelican over ALL other options!

some don't like side loaders but once you use a inner linner bag and quickly drop into a side case you'll never go back to the bottomless pit top case design. with a inner linner you pack you gear in the comfort of your tent, house, hotel room and quickly drop it in the side bag and shut the lid. you can always access side cases cases even if you have large top bags on top. try that with a top loader.

This is true- although I have dropped my bike on both sides several times with very little damage. The frames are slightly bent inward but not enough to warrant doing anything about it. I seriously considered the Pelicans but decided against them on the basis of weight. The Motosport cases weigh about 12 pounds/ pair while the pelicans are twice that (24 pounds/pair). For me, that's a lot of weight before you even start to load your gear and I was anticipating carrying extra fuel, water and tires- the cases were an easy place to start cutting the weight of my load.

I still think about getting some Pelican cases though- it would be easy to mount them on the MS racks.

Does anyone have a picture of a 2002ish DR650 frame? Preferable a picture of a bike without a seat and tank. Picture taken from behind the bike would be the best.

I just picked up a 2002 DR650 that was in an accident and isn't straight anymore. I'm just trying to figure out where the frame is tweaked.

Thanks,
KC

I can not say enough good things about Wolfman's stuff. I beat the crap out of it and it is none the worse for the wear. I swear by it.

I should add that I have their stuff on at least three of my bikes.....(no I'm not affiliated)

It's a 2003 engine.

thanks,
Mine does it sometimes. Sounds like someone hitting it with a hammer. May be altitude induced. Rich maybe. I run mine pretty rich. I think it's a backfire inside the combustion chamber. If it really is a worry, kill the engine by stalling it with the clutch.

DR luggage?

I have the Wolfman Enduro tank bag, a set of the ATV panniers, and the Wolfman Summit saddle bags.

The Wolfman product is tough as nails, and will hold a buttload of stuff.

I was not really as overloaded as it looks in the picture... at least it didn't feel that way.

Oops

So I finally got around to replacing the IMS supplied fuel valve with the Raptor valve that I got about a month ago. I got a little Dremel happy when opening up the hole. I don't know why I had it in my head that I needed to open the hole up sideways as well, but anyway made the hole just a little too big. So I tried fixing it with some JB-Weld Stik, but it's seeping a little after a few hours. So I've drawn up a plate that I'll cut out tomorrow to fix it. I think my best bet is to cut it out of metal and use some Permatex #2 between the plate and the tank. Moral of the story, draw out what you plan on cutting....(and Dremel side cutters go through plastic REALLY fast.)

If the bike still only responds well when it is spun up, the previous owner may have screwed with the air box and/or jetting. Before you do anything, remove the seat and left side panel and see if the rubber snorkel is still in the air box, or if it has a big hole cut in the top or sides. This will tell you right away if your bike has been messed with in terms of mixture. These DR's are very sensitive in this regard, and you may have to pull the carb to see what pilot and main jets you are running. Then report back for help.
Inspecting/adjusting the valves right away is a smart thing to do.

That's the reason they went back to the torque limiting gear from 98-99's soild idler.

Not a worry.
Seems to happen less if you use the kill switch to turn it off.

No worse than carrying a sumo wrestler for a passenger I guess.

Quite a few high mileage DR's seem to make this same sort of noise ... including mine at 35,000 miles.

I've never been that far inside a DR650 to tell you how to fix it ... or what really the issue might be.

I'm guessing it's something to do with the starter clutch/torque limiter set up. As suggested, it does seem to help to shut the bike off by letting out the clutch rather than just turning off key.

Perhaps someone here has been inside and can suggest what is actually worn and what to replace. Hopefully nothing is coming loose inside?

Wish I knew more on this. Good luck!

This is a '97, not from behind. But maybe some help. Its a straight frame.
