Is this just a Gasket Leak?

I peeked up under my oversize tank and saw this surprise last night. What is going on here?

Didn't notice anything last time I rode it and you can see that it never even dripped down the motor so the volume is low.

Anyone interested in watching me drop my DR like a million times, after I wander a little bit and end up stuck with road tires?

Thanks john
Welcome to the world of jetting DR650 carbs,many,many posts on here about how to jet these things.The smoke should back off after a short ride.

My Pingle took about 5 minutes to put on. Quality piece.

I use a straight in-line fuel filter

Don't order from ProCycle! - They take like a whole five minutes to get the part in the mail!

I have the same issue. To me it looks like the seals on the valve adjustment ports need to be replaced. However, I'll also for replies from those who have fixed this (just in case I'm wrong).

Wow, after watching that I felt tired!! Street tires, mud, snow, darkness...seems to me you didn't realize that your adventure was like wrestling a pig in the mud and in the end the pig likes it!! Glad you made it safe and sound though.

Shock Linkage Bearings

Since pictures are always nice, I thought I would post up the ones I took from my 2007 with 21,450 miles on it. Doing a little winter maintenance including going in to look at the shock linkage bearings.

Geez, Grindz, that woulda sucked. Most of my riding miles have been solo, but the weight of the DR is going to change that. Getting caught out after sunset when there's snow on the ground is a bad thing.

There's no gasket in there, just a sealant. Mines been like that for many thousands of miles. I don't mind workin' on the bike, but I do mind working on the engine.

Same with mine. I got a real good look at it recently, and there is minimal leakage. But it looks weird to have that wet spot there with all the dust sticking to it. Been that way for about 15000 miles

I also get a tiny bit of leakage there ... I just clean the motor every 4 or 5 thousand miles when doing valve checks. Just not an issue ... such a tiny leak, takes forever to even see where it is. So ... leave it and just clean it once in a while .... and don't let the dirt and crap stay down in the spark plug well. Blow it out of there and never remove plugs when the well is full of sand and grit.

Looks quite similar to the IMS ... but with sharper lines and better definition. I know from having several IMS and Acerbis tanks that Acerbis have better finishing. The IMS is strong and doesn't leak ... but the molds used must be old (probably from 1996) as the finish is nasty compared to nice smooth finish of the Acerbis. Acerbis also have a better look generally speaking. But this one looks very close to the IMS.

My WR250F has a Acerbis and it's hit the rocks several times ... strong.

Can someone tell me what the capacity of this new Acerbis tank is claimed to be? Projected price?
