Since the GSXR 1000 cans are getting harder to find and more expensive, Jesse at Kientech has developed a mounting system for the Busa cans. Lot's more available and comparable.

Just dropped in the dt-1 filter. Very nice and i like it a bit more that the twin air.

The fmf pipe on the other hand I don't like. Probably going to sell that thing.

Talking Dr 650

I just bought my second DR 650 , a 2012 . My first i bought new in 2001 . That bike had been to hell and back and just would not quit. 173,000 miles on it when i sold it. It was my daily driver for 5 years (didnt have a car) even drove all winter in the snow..... the best mods that ive had and proven were.. yoshimura racing exhust k&n intake ( had to cut the top of the airbox off) head ported and polished , dyno jet stage 3 jet kit ,dunlop d606 racing tires and a kevlar racing clutch.. The bike was always reliable and never gave me any problems except jumping it over 5 ft high ( bottom of tire hight ) the front suspention bottoms out. I replaced the springs with progresive racing springs but it didnt help to much....

Wow. I would have liked to see that odometer. Talk about some serious adventures.

no need for the gsxr can, which is now hard to source. kientech now makes a midpipe/bracket for the hyabusa can, which is pretty-much the same thing as the gsxr can, and much easier to find now. of course, if you stumble across a cheap gsxr can, go for it.

i would choose a gsxr/'busa can, kientech hi-flow midpipe and a pumper carb. i do have a used yosh can and stock carb that was jetted for it (w/open airbox) if you afre interested....

So here's an odd problem for you. I had done some fairly serious dirt riding this past weekend, and when I was riding to work the next day, I noticed that the bike was feeling a little.."rough." I opened the airbox, and saw that my K&N filter was completely caked in dust and grime. I haven't cleaned it since I bought the bike 4000 miles ago, so I went over to Cyclegear and bought the K&N air filter recharge kit (http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product...kit/web1003711). I followed the instructions to the letter, but when I put the filter back in the bike and put the airbox cover back on, the bike won't even idle. I can hold the throttle open a bit and get it to stay running, but as soon as I close the throttle, it gurgles a few times and dies. Taking off the airbox cover lets it idle low, but continuously, and taking the filter off entirely brings it right back to its old self again. Is there something besides what K&N wrote in the instructions that I should have looked out for, or should I just break down and spend the $25 on the Uni filter like everyone else?

I like the TwinAir filter personally. I use a K&N in my truck but it sees far less dusty conditions. Everything else has a foam filter.

I tried a NoToil filter on my DR650 about a year ago but it wouldn't run right. It was either too lean at idle/midrange or too rich. I went back to the TwinAir and it's been fine ever since.

Regardless of filter, you should probably pull the carburetor and spray it out good. I can't help but wonder if it might have sucked in some of the oil from the filter. You might also want to "floss" the pilot jet with a piece of thin-diameter wire to be sure it's good 'n clean. Also doublecheck the AF screw setting.
