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?

Thanks, matt
call Jesse @ Kientech. That's where I got mine.

JoefromSF -- I really like my DirtBagz. They hold up well. They are not water proof though, so I put gear in trash bags if rain is expected.

Any good advice on what to look out for when checking the bike. I have been riding street bike most of the time and this will be my first dual sport bike. So will appreciate if anyone can tell me any potential problem with a DR650SE with this amount of milage.

Yes, that's true. I wouldn't be afraid of this bike though. Mine is an '08 and I now have 32,000 miles on it. It's dirty and looks used but I've taken good care of it and it's a very trustworthy motorcycle. One thing about high mileage in a short period of time: it probably means that the bike has spent a significant amount of time loping along on the highway - easy miles. I've ridden a lot of dirt on mine but I've spent a lot of time getting there too, not being a 'trailer' kind of guy.

Even so, if I tried to sell mine- I doubt that I could get more than $1500 for it- seeing that late model DRs with 500 miles go for $3500-4000.

What I would do is look at the guy's service records. They should tell you how he's treated his bike. I know that a lot of people don't keep detailed records and they still take good care of their bikes, but I wouldn't buy from them. Some people lie. Shocking.

Thanks Josh. I found something on e-bay that seems to be the only thing close. If that doesn't work out, I'll try kientech-- I know they have something worth buying, even if it is not a masterlink. I guess this is proof positive for the 520 conversion. Thanks.

The plugs will only show what was happening in the last several seconds the engine was running before they were removed. If the last thing you did was idle up your driveway the spark plugs are a snapshot of that operation. You can't really determine anything about jetting by looking at the spark plugs unless you put in brand new plugs in an already warmed up motor and then take it out immediately and to a "plug chop" (google it). Then, if you are experienced at reading spark plugs you might make some determination about the size of the main jet.

A better indication of jetting setup is whether is runs great and gets good fuel economy.

I was ordering parts for the DR350 and somehow ended up with DR650 parts. Probably my fault.

Anyway, I have a brand new, OEM, in sealed bag, clutch and throttle cable for a 90-91 DR650S. Anyone need these? The clutch cable (58200-14A00) cost me 13.75. I'd like $10 for it. The throttle (58300-12D00) cost me $18.22. I'd like to get $15. If you buy both I'll pay shipping in the US.

PM me if you're interested.
