Any suggestions for a little bigger rear brake lever? I know the one on my bike currently is bent, which is making it difficult to use, but I wouldn't mind replacing it with something that had just a little more meat on it.

Modify air box
Upgrade air filter
Install jet kit
Install extended fuel screw
Grind header weld
install lighter, better flowing muffler

Instead of jet kit many replace stock carb with a Mikuni TM40 pumper carb ($450)
Thanks for the information. I really don't want to change anything but the ac filter and the exhaust, but if it requires all the other modifications I will just stick with what I have (stock form). Don't really want to lose mpg and not really into more horsepower, just into reliability and low maintenance. Doubt that I will be off road much and will stay mostly on slab. Thanks again for the reply.l

I run a Twin-Air. Flow well, no dirt goes into motor.

With the pipe and K&N I would go up maybe one jet size. Stock is 140
(or is it 142 ?). If 140, go to 145. You could pay and get a dyno check or do an old school plug read (before and after).
Sounds like an easy fix for lean condition when adding hi flow ac and hp muffler. Don't want to lose mpg and not that interested in increased horse power. Just looking for reliability and low maintenance, lighter muffler and better breathing. Will not be doing much dirt riding other than a few flat unpaved roads up in SW Colorado this coming August.

Thanks for the information.

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!
The BST Bible is for the KTM version. The DR650 works best with a stock pilot jet. Your numbers are for main jets. I think the pilot jet is a 42.5 if I remember right.

Raise your idle up for the stalling issue. You may need to back off the pilot screw a bit too.

With the needle at 4 my bike ran fine with no surging above 45 mph. You did not just remove the air box cover did you? The box needs to be opened properly.

Make sure the hose routing is good, the secondary filter is clean etc.

The opened up DR650 needs a Mikuni 150 main at least, with exhaust.

A piece of 1 inch square tubing works perfect for holding the damper rod while you loosen/tighten the bolt.

Second guessing my seat choice?

Well I put on a new Seat Concepts seat and if feels great compared to the stock one when starting out on a long ride but an hour or two on it my butt seems to be hurting as much as my old Gel seat with a Walmart cover on it? Now what? Is it to soft or what? If I throw another pad on top of it I may not be reaching the ground! I have been riding bikes for years so it's not like my butt is that out of shape but I'm not Dolph Lundgren either!
When I first got this seat I thought that I had found my long ride answer. It is great for short rides but no better on long ones! Suggestion?

Any saddle will need time for your rear to settle in. Just switching between bikes with great seats takes me a while to feel good again. Give it a few rides and allow your muscles to adapt.

I have a Seat Concept on my DRZ and found the same issue as you are having, but I have a Corbin on my DR and do not even think about the seat. I have done 550+ mile days without any problems. Even though they are heavy and a bit pricey it is well worth it IMHO.

Try a firmer foam.

Need a Part Pronto

Hello Fellow Inmates
I was installing a FMF Q4 Exhaust upgrade, and have bungled the connector between the mid pipe and the header pipe. Non of the local dealers or online dealers have it in stock and it looks to be a 10 day wait for the pipe. 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
