If you're willing to spend a few extra dollars, then Intiminators up front might be a good solution for you -- they're a little cheaper than Emulators and they're much easier to install, and if you're mostly riding street, then you're golden. If you were mostly going to ride off-road then the Emulators might be a better option. The only downside to Intiminators is that there's no way to adjust them. On the other hand, making adjustments to Emulators is not a simple task, but it can be done. A Gold Valve in the rear will also be a big benefit, but installing it also requires some effort.

And as luck would have it, I just happen to have a set of .50 springs for sale at the moment... PM me if you're interested.
Procycle sells the Emulators for $155.95. Intiminators for $209.95

Yeah. Emulators + springs are dearer than Intiminators.
But not if you weigh 300...

not sure what I was thinking when I wrote that.... I knew the Emulators alone were in the ~ $150 ball park.

Question Cracked casess revisted

I have begun to sort out my broken cases problem. For sale on Ebay is a left side engine case from a 1994 DR650 (I assume the "left" case is the one that the generator cover fits over and that houses the fly wheel). Is this case the same as the one on a 1998 or 1999 DR650, and is it a direct swap part? Do I need a complete set of cases or can I just replace one side with the 1994 part and keep my 1999 right side case?

Thanks for any help and advice

Cheers

Question

upon further inspection, it seems the 1995 engine has cases and then a covering piece that houses the starter and starter gears, whereas the 1999 engine combines these two pieces into one solid hal¿f of the engine cases. Am I wrong in this analysis? Am I missing something?

There are essentially two versions of the DR:

1) the pre-1996 version
2) the post-1996 version

While the two bikes have some resemblance, they are completely different and do not share any of the same parts.

does that mean the starter clutch gears from a pre 1996 bike won't work on a psot 1996 bike, or simply that the engine cases and other engine parts are not compatable? Meaning I would need a post 1996 left side engine case? But the generator covers are compaptable pre 1996 and post 1996?

Beyond a few bolts and screws nothing from a '94 motor will fit a '96 and later motor. They are 2 completely different animals sharing only the same name.

Engine cases are machined in matched pairs. Trying to put 2 unmatched case halves together to build a motor is inviting all sorts of possible problems - from oil leaks to stressed bearings and misaligned shafts.

It's not worth the risk or trouble. You need a matched set of case halves or better yet a complete motor. One here on eBay (not mine)

Not sure how important it is, but the cases are sold in sets.
If you mix and match, you might have issues, vibration issues, oil leak issues?

The lineup of the crank bearings might be critical...

Procycle sell a couple of nice little tools for this job-I've just ordered one, along with a few other goodies to justify the $75.00 (AUS) freight to Aussie.

I know, however, I'm just curious about the size.
