Just got a call from the shop regarding my '08 that was having some trouble. I feared the worst but in the end it just needed a new fuel line. $10 later and I'm on the road.

They're bulletproof.

Nice when it's something little and inexpensive.

To cover the elec. output issue I'd look at the DR thead index and find instructions for re-wiring the stator. This gives you about 50 more watts but at a slightly higher RPM. Idle output actually drops ....

I installed a headlight switch, others use a 35 watt HID headlight and LED bulbs throughout. This saves more power.

I run a Gerbing and grips no problems. Night riding is more of a challenge if you run Aux lights or other accessories.

Mark, keep in mind, that is the "quick fix" solution. It will help some but there are a couple other things I would do:

1. Make sure you install an extended fuel screw adjuster. At high altitude, lean it out a bit (turn IN ... clockwise) This will help idling and starting, save fuel and bike will run better overall. Re-adjust when back down at lower altitude ... Always run this as lean as possible while retaining a reasonably smooth idle.

2. If you plan to stay up high for extended periods, I would change the pilot jet and possibly the main jet. (both need to be Leaner ... smaller number) Just be sure to return to normal jetting once down to lower altitudes.

Panicing,
Snip the wires a couple of cm inside the cases, fold it back on itself a couple of times and zip tie it.
You can always solder on a new one later if you want.

Thank you and yes electrics is what I was asking for and after looking at my post I can see I wasn't very articulate about it...must have been the 4 hr sleep the night before.
Engine power I know plenty about. That thing was pushing 52 @ the wheel without an air box @ one point...Yes it's possible but not worth the expense and you end up with a purpose built motard and takes the rest out of the equation (dual sport, drivebility and everyday livable use).

That is custom built exhaust from one end to the other By one of the originals, Mr Garry Wullf himself, for those who remember Wullf headers of the 70's and 80'.... It was ceramic coated, flat black. It wasnt fancy but man did it work

Had a penskey shock set up by LE out of California along with the fully reworked front end...The handling was amazing on and off road. Unfortunately I didnt have much off-road experiance to utalize evan 50% of it. In the paved twisties...well that was another thing

Jetting Question

How white should the plugs be?

Having a second go at jetting my DR, it only has the snorkel out and a twin air filter.

When i did it 20,000km ago i raised the needle by 1mm (0.04") and ended up with the mixture screw 2.25turns out. Was never entirely happy with it, seemed to surge a tad.

In those 20,000k's the plastic spacer had a groove worn into it (~0.5mm (0.02")). Have flipped the spacer over and shaved a bit of material off the washers so it should now be raised by 0.76mm (0.03") which I believe is the ideal?

Mixture screw is about 2 turns out (I did it for a smooth idle and then a quarter turn further)


Plugs are a bit grey/white, they're up for replacement in another 2k, what do you guys think of the colouring? All good?
