go to link, ome, click on fuel and get the carb picture and blow it up.

If you took this out:



It might be this o-ring:



Yes, there's supposed to be a hose on that nipple.



It goes here (right side frame rail, next to snorkel), no filter, open end:

Charging/Battery Problem

I'm having some sort of charging/battery problem with my DR. I bought the bike a month or so ago and was warned by the PO that the battery was on its way out. Sure enough the battery would discharge quickly when the bike was left for a few days and even lost charge when the bike was running, getting so low that the bike wouldn't run properly, I guess due to lack of spark?

So I bought a new battery and the bike seemed to be running alright. I then put the bike in a container and shipped it to my new home in Hawaii. In the 2 weeks that the bike was in transit it completely lost its charge. To the point where I had no headlight, no taillight, nothing. I jump started it, let it run for 15 minutes, and nothing. No charge at all.

SO... I bought a battery charger/maintainer and a multimeter. I let it sit on charge overnight until the charger indicated charged completely. I measured the voltage: 13.0v. I started the bike, revved it a little and checked the voltage: 12.4v. It seems like the voltage should be higher when the bike it running, no?

So I'm thinking the regulator/rectifier or alternator is bad, but that wouldn't explain why the bike is discharging when it sits for a time, right?

Any suggestions?!

A bad battery sometimes behaves like that. I have recent experience with that. When you bought the new battery, did you fully trickle-charge it before installing it?

No, just put it in the bike. It started right up, seemed fine. Then by the time it got to Hawaii it was completely dead. Maybe something is draining the battery when it's not running? But why does the voltage drop when it is running? Shouldn't it be higher?

I've been running Pirelli Scorpions on my DR and have been happy with them so far. Pavement and dirt roads for me and they work well so far. I'm going to try some Anakee's for my next set though.

But we want to see the porcelin coloring, please. Smaller would be good, for the guys still on dial-up. I think this is one of my original DR plugs, still lying on my desk.
What is this dial-up I hear of

You have to properly condition a new battery when you first activate it. It needs to be on a trickle charger or a Battery Tender until it's fully charged after you add the acid. I suspect that the new battery died on the way to Hawaii.

You can't trust voltage readings when a bad battery is in line. I don't know why they behave that way, but that's exactly how mine behaved when the battery died...it showed a drop in voltage with the engine running.

edit.. I'm a moron it says right on the jet what size it is.... 145 main jet bbut don't know if it's DJ or that other one... pilot jet says 52 PI... does that make sense?







This last photo is showing a port that had no hose connected to it when I was removing it from the bike, however in the guide I was following, i think it shows there is a hose connected to it... I do not know what this is for or what hose I am missing
That looks like a Procycle Jet kit, so the 145 should be a stock jet, meaning not a DJ jet, 52 sounds to big for pilot

First Off Road Ride of the Season

Thought I would share some pics of my ride today. DR rode well. This is a ride up and over Mount Herman Road to Rampart Range Road then Woodland Park. Colorado. The mountain is Pike's Peak.

Yeah, it used to be so easy. Ride WFO for at least 30 seconds, kill the motor, drift to a stop and read plug. Black = too rich (main jet), brown = perfect, white = too lean.

Found where the o-ring goes!

That hose was just floating around underneath the seat... i'll stick it back on tomorrow.

I will see if I can find a smaller pilot jet to order online.... I'm never taking the carb completely out again because that was a massive pain in the butt to get it back into those rubber boots......
