Howdy fellas. I just bought a 2012 triumph bonneville and have literally punched my bank account in the testicals. So, I'm going to sell my Dr, and pick up another once finances level out some. I'll post up in the fleamarket later today, some of you might remember my bike so I just thought I'd throw a line out.

Good day to you sir's.

I'm hoping my '06 Swingarm will fare better. How did the hardware on your Swingarm look coming out? OK?
Actually, you don't need to pull the swingarm off to get to the chain buffer. It's put on with 3 phillips screws into the swingarm. (Hasn't Suzuki ever heard of Allens heads? I replace all those Phillips whenever I can before I wreck them! I know, I know they're not really Phillips, they're JIS, but I eventually wreck them just the same- even using the special screwdrivers.)

Anyway, just pull off the front sprocket and slide the old rubber buffer out, and the new one back in the same way.

I did pull my swingarm at 15,000 miles to put some waterproof grease in all the suspension bearings- everything seemed in good shape at that point and it was pretty easy. Good thing to do, as those bearings are very lightly greased from the factory.

Question

Question for Procycle:

Since this might interest others, like Notarat, I decided to post instead of PM.
I'm interested in the Supermoto 320mm Brake Rotor Kit.

Do you or your supplier have a matching wave rotor for the rear? I understand it wouldn't have the gold hub, but a matching edge wave and drill pattern would be sweet.

I had an SV650 do the same thing a while back. I found a "stiff/kinked" link in the chain. The chain had about 15,000 miles on it and had seen lots of rain riding.

Put bike on stand and spin tire with your hand and check for "lumps".

I replaced chain.

Help with led signal conversion

I thought I had read enough about LED conversion but today's swap is not going well. Background: 05 DR with Kuryakyn 4709 diode kit and LED dash light installed months ago and working perfectly. Today I installed a Custom LED ELFR-1 electronic LED flasher (as recommended by MXRob). Everything works fine with the new flasher and the original bulbs but none of my new LED bulbs (1156 base 67-A15s from Superbrightleds.com) will light up at all. I tested each new bulb and they all work fine when directly supplied with 12v but none of them work in the blinker sockets. The LED indicator dash light blinks fine as usual no matter what turn signal bulbs are installed. The new flasher is plug & play with the stock harness but I reversed the wiring just for kicks which made the stock bulbs light up without blinking but still did not correct the LEDs. Any help would be appreciated and the sun is making a rare appearance this week. -thanks

Me too!, Already have the front.
But I want the gold rear hub too,
Ya, I know, It's solid not floating, that doesn't change what I want.

But thats where it ends. Both screws were snug, but the bike only had 200 miles on it. I easily broke them and took them out. No locktite. Clean as a whistle.


The 1st (2), an 07' & 09', I did I took the clutch off, this one I left it on. Doable for sure, but yea takes some patience and you need to cut the hex key down a bit to shorten it for the upper screw or bolt.

Even though this was my 3rd time, I cant remember the torque settings nor can I find any refference to them.
Can anyone give me the
1. clutch cover bolt seetings ? 8 or 10 nm ?
2. Banjo bolt on the oil line
3. and the return oil from the cooler.

Thanks fellas,

Thank you.
I distinctly remember reading 1, 2, and 3; I was thinking "That's where I use my torque wrist."

If I had to guess, I'm thinking he lugs the engine too much, or the cush hub bearings are toast....or both.

Nope. I have not seen a wave rotor for the rear of the DR

I've got about 30,000 kms on mine now and works well. Seems to be wearing heaps better than the stock one which was trashed at about 15,000 kms

The battery is charged and I can hear it cranking. Carburetor was cleaned today and the fuel filter replaced With in line filter as per Krusty's thread. I was away from this forum and from bikes in general for too long to think by myself what's next...
Anyone with a hint for this lazy inmate?
Would the Spark plugs be the next thing to check?

(by the way, the bike came from Utah to Texas on a truck with my household items about a year ago and never started ever since...)

Cheers

Congrats on the new baby!! A DRZ400??
Here is an update on my attempt to get the DR back up and running:
It turned down it was indeed the floatbow that was empty. Since I have an inline gas filter and therefore a big loop on the gas hose, it took several attempts to prime the system again. The method applied consisted of removing the hose with the check valve from the top of the gas cap on my IMS tank and blowing on the cap to pressurize the tank. With the check valve back on, we cranked the bike several times to force gas into the carb. We even had to stop and charge the battery again before we could resume the same procedure a few more times. It finally worked and the bike started!! Yay!!!

Now to the next issue:
Bike is backfiring a lot and exhaust pipe is glowing red. Really red! As if it is one step away from becoming liquid metal. (I will post a picture shortly).
I know I've red something about it on this Forum a long time ago. I will have fun with the search engine in a little bit to try and find it again.
I also have a hint that both issues (backfiring and glowing) are connected and probably related to the quality of the mixture the carburetor is putting out.

To do list:
1) Search Advrider for glowing exhaust pipe and a 101 on carb adjustment
2) By seafoam and add to the gas

Cheers
