Hey All,

Looking to get rid of the monstrous lighting on the rear of my DR..Can some of you who have done some simpler substitutions post pictures of your solutions? I'm trying to get ideas... Anyone using a baja designs style LED tail light?

Have you seen that the DR250 tail light is a direct replacement? Or do you want something different than that?

Here is the image from procycle's site

I didn't know about Procycle or ADVrider when I did this. That Procycle piece looks very nice.

I didn't want my rear tire throwing crap on my jacket so I left most of Suzuki's parts on. Besides the taillight shown above, I recessed my plate light into the fender, trimmed the bottom edge off the fender and removed the plate bracket. A solid piece of alum is cut to the size of the plate for support.

That's weird: I smudged my lisc plate in Smugmug and now it's bigger than the second pic??



How I recessed the plate light. You can see the alum piece at the far left of the pic, really dirty.

I'm selling my not-currently-running '96 DR for parts or repair in the flea market.

It's a much older FMF MegaMax for four strokes, circa 2004. I bought it because I like the disc control concept: less discs more quiet, more discs, louder. I just removed discs until it was quiet enough for me. Again, long before I knew about the GSXR and other options. The only reasons for leaving the stocker: its height and its weight.

It's been replaced by a GSXR Ti unit, which was still a little loud for me until I stuck a spark arrestor in the end. Now it's good and no more repacking.

If you still have the stock needle ... then THERE is your problem.

When you say "air box top removed" ?? How did you do that? Normally, a section of the air box top is cut. I would follow the "Jesse template". It works. If you have, for some unknown reason, removed the air box side cover ... put it back on.

I'm not a K&N fan but I doubt that's your issue.

Try this:
Main: 155 (DJ jet)
Needle: 3rd clip down from top
Pilot fuel/air screw: One turn out.

Having the Pilot fuel/air screw out too far wastes A LOT of fuel. Turn it IN and lean it out. Sure, it will run a bit rough at idle but your fuel economy will be MUCH BETTER.

Good luck!
Thanks for all the tips guys. Just to clarify, I have the DJ needle set pet Jesse's instructions. I started with fuel screw out 1 turn, but would not idle right. So moved it out to two turns, still idled rough, do now its at 2 1/4 turns and idles nice. Airbox top was cut out per Jesse's template.

Guess I will start with new o rings and have a look at the petcock.

Thanks.

I dont think I ride that hard (in the street). High 30's with Mefo DS tires. I did notice a 4mpg jump when I went from Mefo's to Pirelli Scorpion Trail street slicks. On the freeway, 60-70mph, avg. I do have a windscreen on the front, maybe that's doing it.

I like this. So you just modified the stock mud flap to what you have there? And that is a drz250 taillight?

Maybe.............Procycle calls it a DR250, Kientec calls it a DRZ250. If you buy from either of those, you'll get the correct light. If you want to order from your local dealer, I don't remember which I ordered 8 years ago. BikeBandit is being difficult or I'd give you a better answer.

I made a mid-pipe back then, and it was really ugly; notch, bend, weld, notch, bend, weld; etc. So very glad the side cover hid it.
