No, I had the petcock off of course. I also am certifiable when it come to oil. I check the level constantly and changed it immediately after getting back from the Shell station and warming it up. It was right on the money level wise before I pulled the drain plug.
Magnetic of course.......
My buddies Super Enduro was also drained dry.

I guess you should try to poke around at the intiminator and see if any of the passages are blocked or the valves are sticky. Maybe clean it up? Maybe take it apart? Maybe the rebound circuit is blocked or something....
Yes, I will probably take it apart and try and clean it/inspect it.

What spacers were you running?
Ricor recommend running the stock spacers, uncut.

Easier to compress without the Intiminators? It should be, the anti-dive is one of the selling points.
I'm running some home made PVC pipe spacers, about 1" tall (or roughly the same height as the fork caps) if I recall correctly from memory.

Easier to compress and rebound now. When I compressed with Intiminators, it clunked and felt stuck at the bottom, requiring some assistance to pull the fork up through its rebound stroke.

I'm thinking it's also possible the finish on the inside of my fork legs is not as precise or the exact diameter as most of the forks out there, which is causing some binding. I read one story about someone purchasing Intiminators for a bike that was not too common, and due to too much variation in the fork tube ID, Ricor said they could not make any off the shelf as they could not get a lock on the dimensions. They would instead require an actual ID measurement to make them.

There is a rule that the tank must be less then half full, so maybe they did drain it some...but then just decided to go all the way.

That is really good to know. My next tank will be the Acerbis!

I wonder if the Acerbis will expand like the IMS does? My so called 4.9 IMS now takes 5.4 gallons once emptied of every drop of fuel ... BUT it can only really use about 4.5 gallons before running out when on reserve. You can tip her over and get a bit more, but that's a last ditch effort, maybe worth 10 to 15 miles further.

Is that a spare stock tank on the right? it looks larger than what is on the bike in the background,, must be a figment of my imagination.

The only downside is these boots squeak like mad. I've read you can oil them, but I haven't tried yet.

Oh boy, a new oil thread!
Dino or synthetic.

what do you think of blends,
do you go down a grade in the winter,
blah, blah, blah

Yes, It's brand new stock tank.

Tho I am not sure if the plastic tank is bigger or not.

That's a Clarke tank. It's almost 1/2 gallon bigger than stock.

I think it is for sure 1/2 gal more, the Clarke i bought from you guys actually holds 3.91 gallons, but i guess they may vary a little, i like that size tank, works perfect for around these parts on a dual sport.

Puncture!

Quick question or two....
I seem to have a slow puncture in the back wheel which is a standard DR650 wheel. The tire is a Dunlop 606 and states tube type on the tire wall. I've repaired about a thousand bicycle punctures so figure this is the same but scaled up. I plan to get hold of a pair of tire irons and a new innertube, swap the tube out, check inside the tire for the cause and put it all back together. Then repair the old tube and keep as a spare.

Question 1 - what size innertube should I be buying? The tire is 130/90/17

Question 2 - is there anything else I should be aware of? There doesn't seem to anything like a rimlock on these wheels.

That's a solid plan.
Most tubes have the old inch sizing so expect to find a 5.10-17 tube.
You're in good shape having lots of bicycle tire experience. Expect it to take quite a bit more effort and don't pinch the tube putting it back together.

Awesome! Thankyou.

Thanks also for all the excellent Procycle service recently. I've put two or three orders in recently and everything has been in stock, arrived quick. Very refreshing, I couldn't ask for more. Thankyou!

Hi,

In which part of the IMS tank does the unusable fuel actually remain? Is this corrected if you rotate the fuel inlet of the carb as discussed on the previous pages?
