fixing to dive into my 06 DR, been talking to Keintech, super nice folks; starting with the carb, airbox, and moving on back from there... never worked on a carb before, but going to man up and go for it... any advice on where else to get the most noticeable improvement, please feel free to let me know. I have always been a big fan of suspension upgrades in my cars, not really sure where to go on the DR.

The carb jetting project is fairly easy. Just take your time. The performance improvement is dramatic although it will hurt your MPG. After the change i had to careful not to have the front come up on a quick take off! I had to fiddle a little with the fuel mixture screw a little to get the off idle right but other than that no problem.

Question Trusty steed let me down ...

Dear wise people,

I just rode to town on my bike which did not act up at all previously. When I wanted to come back the bike did not start. The light came up allright. I kicked up the stand, pulled the clutch, hit the button ... and nothing. Not a single click, sound, noise or anything. So I'm wondering, is there a dedicated fuse for the starter, and if, where is it located? Or do I have to chase down a broken wire? Any ideas/input is welcome, thanks in advance

When you get within a couple of days of San Jose Costa Rica PM me If you like. I have been living here for the past year and enjoy very much.

Ride safe and enjoy.

I may very well regret this but I can envision being pissed off carrying all the stuff as far as South America and not using it. Then again I'll be equally pissed when opportunities present themselves and I don't have the gear.

So there you go. Thanks to everyone for the valuable input. If I could comfortably bring it I would but that's not turning out to be the case.

Cheers all. Hope to see some of you on the road to wherever.

Oh crap, I totally didn't think of that and now my bike is downtown .... It was too late and I was too tired. That would probably be it. Thanks. I'll grab a cab tomorrow and check it out. Darn!

I ate it in a sandtrap once. Bike did the exact same thing. I ended up pushing it......for miles. Out of desperation I started spitting on things because sand was lodged everywhere. Sure enough, there was a bit of sand in the kill switch not enabling it to fully release. Little more spit and a couple taps later, it fully released. Bike fired right up.

Nice job with your DR.

Might be prudent to add case savers. These should help in case of a tip over. They install in 10 minutes with a heavy bed (cushion) of hi-temp silicone (clean and degrease with isopropyl alcohol first).

IRC TR-1 Dual Sport Front?

Just when I decided on a D606 front tire to replace the IRC GP-1 I have now, I saw this tire:



IRC TR-1 Dual Sport Front

Anyone used this? I am looking for better off-road traction in sand and rocks than the GP-1, with tolerable road manners.

Thanks. I think it would be difficult to find. DR is not the most popular motorcycle in Russia. :)
