Hey Warp9, welcome to the fracas, I will have to get a set of those levers in my next round of DR farkleizing.
I have a question about your wheels, all I ever see are black, do you have polished silver or other colors?

Anyone have some photos of a successfully mounted and stable Nelson-Rigg CL tailbag on the DR? I have the stock straps with the hooked ends and can not for the life of me figure out a decent solution for mounting the CL-1040 to the stock DR rear rack.

Do you think putting an ignition coil from a BMW F650 would work till I get to South Africa? I have a friend in Nairobi who might be able to source a coil from an F650 but he's not sure it will work. What do you think? Im thinking mainly the amps of the coil has to match, right?
Just bumping you up so your question doesn't get lost. Good luck.

A Little Help Please

Time for me to make a change in my riding style so my DR650 has to go. Please pass the word to your friends, especially those riding KLRs (when they finally catch up to you).

Thanks,

Hello Maynard, yes we can do any color you want. i think the DR guys tend to be on the consevative side when it comes to color. seems like the MX guys want the flash and the DR, KLR etc guys want silver or black, but yes we can do whatever color you want. if you wait about 3 weeks I a'm also working on some beautiful floating wave design rotors for the DR's. they look so good they should add an easy 3hp to the bike ha-ha

Considering how much time I've spent reading this thread, I think that estimate sums up the value I place on all the great advice I've gotten here!

2005 DR650 in Medford Oregon

If anyone is interested, I went by the Kawasaki/Honda dealer in Medford and they have a 2005 DR650 with 3775 miles for $3100 or $3199...I can't remember exactly. I guess they got it as a trade or consignment. Makes me think though that they'd take a bit less and maybe someone can score a decent DR for ~$3k. It has the stock tires and what looks like a rear rack. The plastic has minor (what looked like brush) scratches all over. It's yellow. Just an FYI.

And don't mind the drama. It's a big thread; unavoidable . At least you missed the "washer" frecas... .

I think the DRZ has the 11mm master cylinder like the RMZ also,smaller bore than the DR650.

Thanks for the info guys. Think I'm going to look into the stock RMZ setup with the mirror adapters.

Jay,
I hope I can help! You are living my dream!
Just because it is hot doesn't necessarily mean it is broken. The CDI could be messed up too.
First thing: The primary coil on the ignition coil should measure 0.07 to 0.12 ohms.
The secondary coil should measure 23-25 K-ohms.
If those measure properly, then your ignition coil is likely fine.
You can check the CDI by the manual if you have a manual. Page 6-20.
Also check the power source coil and pickup coil on the same page.

I'll check the BMW resistances and be back shortly.

This is all I could find:
Primary - Pin 2 to Pin 3 - 0.2 to 0.6 ohms
Secondary - HT lead to earth - 6k to 13k Ohms

The spark will be weaker, it will probably be cooler though. Try it if it's cheap I guess.

Edit Again:
According to the manual, the BMW primary coil should be 0.45 to 0.55 ohms.

i think the dr would run with battery disconnected so not sure it's the shorai. guess you could start it and disconnect the battery right away and see what happens?

since those other coils are causing a shut down too it might not be that...process of elimination and the same result happens.

could some kind of electrical wire be heating, expanding/moving and then shorting elsewhere? what happens is you disconnect all your added electricals and even lights and see how the bike runs? go back to stock.
maybe something is going bad in there.
