Make sure the cush hub bearing isn't self destructing. Put your finger on the red arrow with your left hand, grab the sprocket with your right and try to move the sprocket left and right. There should be no movement at the seal.



Hopefully your chain and sprockets don't look like this:


Thanks! I'll try this in the morning. Front sprocket is in good shape. I was wondering at one point if the noise I was hearing might be coming from the rear axle. I'll let you know what I find. Thanks for the reply!

Please let us know how that works out for you, okay? On a somewhat related note, does anyone know of a rally-type mask for the DR? My current lexan screen leans too far rearward into the cockpit and shakes the whole fairing around at speed. I'd like to move toward something along the lines of this:

Hey will_SC,

How many miles do you have on your chain / sprockets?

How do you strap down your gear?

I'm off on a little ride this week for a few hundred miles camping. Any ideas or pic's on how and what you use to strap on all your gear to the rack? Ropes? Bungi's?

I use the smaller of these two rack plates with Rok Straps, it does everything. 'Course that don't help you out much for this weekend.

www.andystrapz.com

I assume someone in the US sells something similar. I have about 4 different sets and strap the living daylights out of the saddle bags (soft panniers).

They are the shizzle.

Rock Straps. Won't unhook over a hard bump like bungies. I then back'm up with heavy bungies. I always use two separate systems, e.g.- two Rock Straps and two bungies, one wraped in X pattern, the other in parallel. If one system fails, the other will hold the load securely. Could use four Rock Straps and no bungies. I don't think we have Andystraps state-side

I prefer to use bags with integral straps like these. Much safer when you can tie the bags down properly rather than having straps go all the way over from one side to the other. The Wolfman bag in particular is awesome; just bought a second one for myself. Inexpensive, too.

Click the images to go to the sites, for more information.

A lot of good straps already mentioned. I learned the hard way that it's a good idea to run a strap through any loop you can find on each piece of your luggage. I had a sleeping bag strapped on top of a gear bag and when things shifted in the gear bag the strap came loose and my sleeping bag fell off. I backtracked my whole route but couldn't find it so my overnight ride got cut short.

Lost my Kermit Chair once above lake Pend O'reille on a fire road. Backtracked and found the damn thing several miles behind. It was in a rolltop waterproof bag, safe and sound, but I nearly shit.

Anyone ever try a programmable CDI on a DR650?

Probably a waste of money on a low strung bike like the DR650. But maybe for those 790cc, big valve head and cam guys that want a little extra!

I don't plan to try one, but I was just curious

Makes me wonder which would be worse: a sleeping bag lost, or a sleeping bag caught in spokes/chain, bringing the wheel to a sudden stop.

Now that I have the carb all apart, I think I will make life easier and just buy a new jet kit and start with all the right parts and actually know what they are. This reverse engineering makes the head spin.
