Yeah man. I've been climbing onto my left peg and then

swinging my right leg over too. It's MUCH easier than trying to swing my leg over from ground level. I learned to do this when I had a KLR. I've got a really arthritic hip that doesn't allow me to raise my legs laterally much at all. I can't even sit "indian style," but climbing aboard that left peg first allows me to mount the bike without straining. The DR pegs are plenty strong. Have no doubts about their strength and learn to mount this way; it sure works for me.

I've had bikes you could roll off the center stand, but never had a center stand on a DR so I'll leave that one to those that do.

As far as the stand and frame holding you as you get on, I would not worry about that, just make sure the ground under the stand is firm enough

I can't remember where I read it now, but someone cured a surge issue by moving the carb vent hose (the one with the filter on it) that sits on top of the airbox.
IIRC after opening up the top of the air box the filter ended up positioned to where it was either in the opening or hanging down in the air box, which was disrupting it ability to vent the carb properly. According to him as soon as he moved it out of the air intake path the surge went away.
Good luck!

Running issues with a 03 650

Well i went out and messed with some of the hoses coming off of the carb, rerouted one, took the little k&n off of the other and made a little duct tape dam around the top of the air box and the thing runs great at all rpm's. The bad news is i did too many things at once and im not sure which fixed it. Any guesses ?

Thanks for all the help Greg

I've been doing the same thing for years. I broke right hip when i was a kid and it didnt set right. No injun style sitting either. I can get on from the right side from the ground but not from the leftl side. Just what we have to do to keep riding.

Good luck - Frank

I would just be happy, but if you are really interested, just undo them one at a time until the problem returns.

The arm bolt fits in the notch, the arm won't go back on with the bolt in. It's also a very snug fit, so you have to get it straight onto the spline. This is important because the arm must be on the correct spline, off one either direction won't work.

Edit to add: the arm looks correct here, remove the bolt, slide the arm down, bolt and ride. :-)

That was my disassembly photo, so the bolt is just in to keep track of it.

But I GOT IT! THANKS TO ALL FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE!

Next post, I'll tell you how.



post NSU fix (with temporary bolt, as the original looked sketchy, so is in my pocket for replacement)

Just got to put the skidplate back on and I'm done messing with the bike and can ride it!

Bingo! Perhaps because you are south of the equator?

Anti/counterclock was the answer. 2 minutes, and rode a couple kms to make sure, and I'm back in business!

Thanks for your help Nordie Boy, ER70S-2, et al.

Riding Off Center Stand

Have the SW Motech center stand and ride off it most every time it's used. Have to rock the bike back to get enough traction and sort of do a small wheelee right off the stand and keep going.

To deploy the center stand, put the bike in neutral, place left hand between tank and steering stem, grasping the tank, place right hand on rear passenger grip (part of luggage rack) and push stand to ground. Pull the bike backwards using both hands and a little left hip action. Works OK even loaded with camping gear.

Got my mullet:



new MT-21

I have a newish Mefo Explorer on the rear. The IRC-GP1 front I was running wasn't confidence inspiring in sand or mud. So I am looking forward to trying out this combination.

When I first read it I assumed it was making it hard for the slide to respond correctly, because the air intake at the airbox could be actually pulling a slight vacum on the carb vent\breather hose. This erratic movement of the slide is what I assumed caused the surge. Just a guess though because it wasn't my issue, just something I read.

Thanks, that's what I needed to know. I feel a lot more secure about climbing on the peg when it's on a center stand instead of the side stand.
