the stalling just above idle is from too rich a pilot jet tuning.

awhile back people found the traditional ways of fine tuning the pilot screw resulted in it being turned out too far the creating a rich bog just off of idle. try using 1 turn out and see what happens. turning up the idle helps but then you deal w/ another DR issue, 1st gear clunk and the solution is to turn the idle down so there is a trade-off happy point in there somewhere for you.

as for surging it's an issue for some because of the open airbox and air the pulse waves coming into the carb. some have it some don't. some have found putting a better filter on the carb vent helps (small round thing tucked up in there). others have put mesh screen on top of air opening or put back in the backfire screen (which procycle found makes no difference either way in or out)

Is this the part I need? http://www.motorcyclecarbs.com/MIKUN...__P2617C26.cfm

Also, I seem to have misplaced my instructions for the Pro-Cycle jet kit. Could someone scan them and post 'em for me? I just really need to double check a few things. The bike runs pretty well but does have a little surge at 55-65 mph and an annoying tendancy to want to stall (just above idle) when warm. Thanks!

Do you feel that one is firmer or softer then the other? Seats are and odd thing to tack down. It's like how do people ride all day on a 10 speed seat? I'm thinking that some times it's where the seat rides like more on the boney middle part of your butt or on the outter fattier part that makes a differeance?

The Corbin is quite a bit firmer than the seat concepts. I better add that my seat concepts is also the lower model, which may have some impact on it"s long range comfort. I also run a Corbin on Guzzi Norge and like it as well, but must say the fit to the tank on the Norge seat is pretty shabby work for the price of the seat. I guess my old ass requires a firmer seat.

I will be out of state for the rest of the month and am planning to depart July 1st to ride the Continental Divide Trail north to south. I kinda wanted to have the DR back together by this weekend instead of getting back from my trip throwing the bike back together and taking off. The part is a stock part for my 2009 DR 650 part number 1053526 and is called Connector, MUF
So does anyone know where one is in stock I can have rapid shipped to my house or does anyone know a substitute? It really is the gasket between the midpipe and the header pipe so there is not an exhaust leak. Thanks Roger
ProCycle has them in stock

Athena makes the OEM gaskets for Aprillia, Ducati and others. They are high quality gaskets but certainly kinda pricey compared to other options. You certainly are not going to cause engine damage from a gasket.

Ok inmates, looking for some knowledge. I had an electrical fire on my 2011 DR. I bought a used harness (in great condition) and replaced the old one. All the lights are working but when you press the starter nothing happens. It doesnt even turn over. There is an orange power wire that goes from the forward connector to the ECU that is missing. It seems that there are some differences in the wiring of the 96+ DRs. Has anyone had this problem? Its the orange wire with a black tracer.

Did you check the fuse? If you had a fire it may have blowen?

The manual doesn't show an orange/black anywhere. There's an orange, orange/white and orange/yellow. Looking at my DR, there's an orange/white and orange/yellow at the CDI.

It is an orange/balck wire. The old harness had 6 wires in the front connector and the new (used) one has 5. It comes off the main start switch and is orange with a black tracer. Apparently there are 4 different wiring schematics. I am trying to find the right one now.

I dont see an orange/black wire anywhere either on the schematics. The guy at the shop must be trippin.There is a yellow/black wire that goes from the start switch to the clutch lever position switch? That might be it. Would that make sense?

This wiring schematic shows an Orange/Black wire running from the main connector: http://tiltpen.net/DR650/640x480/Wir...Tech's.jpg

That would make sense, except I see it as a Y/G (yellow/green). Do you have the bike or is it at the shop?

I (and anyone else that want's to help) need to be on the same 'page' you're on. Look at the legend in the lower right corner of your pic. When there are two colors, like the lower half, the solid color is listed first and the tracer is second. Always, everywhere, not optional, mandatory. There are only 3 orange wires, none of them have a black tracer.

There is a black/orange listed, but I can't find it. What's the nearest electrical device to what you're calling the main connector, the ignition switch?

Ok so I think I have figured it out. In that schematic I posted above the Orange/White wire from the kill switch runs to the Orange/Black wire which runs down to the side stand relay. This is how the kill switch/starter gets power on this version. See below :


The older version (the used harness I bought) has this wire soldered to the straight orange power wire. Such as below:


So it appears all I need to do is connect the orange/white wire from the kill switch to the orange power wire (essentially making it like the old harness and bypassing that side-stand wire. Does that make sense to people?

There is a 2007 DR650 with ~120 miles on it at Tread and Track in Klamath Falls, Oregon for sale. Asking price is $4000 if anyone is interested. You don't see these very long typically, at least around here (this wasn't on their site just a little while ago because I check their site from time to time), so I figured I'd throw it out there.

No wonder I can't find the damn thing, no one can agree on WTF to call it! Will this work on the DR?

If not, maybe you can tell me what you're using...don't even bother saying "a drift and a hammer". If I wanted to destroy it, I wouldn't be asking.

Thanks!
