Just a thought, has anyone tried to fit the XTZ660's front fairing and tank assembly on to a DR? Pat

Maybe I ought to pull the tank off so I can really soak it good...
Soft Scrub with bleach also works very well on white tanks. I had a white Safari Tank on my Husky and it easily took off the GA Red clay that had stained the tank.

That'd be cool looking. It'd probably be more expensive trying to fab that up than just buying a custom fairing kit designed for it though.

Use 13508-17C00 CAP in conjunction with 13671-05A40 CLIP, or install 13502-12D00 COVER, DIAPHRAGM in place of your existing one.

Carbs have been a regular discussion lately so that might explain the lack of explanation.

I was looking for options for short, adjustable levers for the DR650 and came up with very few choices. I was really looking for unbreakable (type that pivots up if it hits something) but found nothing. I thought about swapping perches with a SV650 but dislike the way the front master cylinder is mounted. A little parts book scouring led me to discover that the DL650 (Vstrom) and SV650 naked use the same levers for clutch and brake. Since they levers are the same part number, their sizing should be the same, meaning that the world of fancy, shiny levers just exponentially expanded. The perches look identical for clutch, but the brake on the DL650 has the front master cylinder like a DR, except the line output is facing the fork, not forward. It appears that there is enough clearance to rotate the line for proper routing. My questions are as follows:

1. Do you know if the DR and DL front master cylinder have the same bore, stroke, and brake line hardware size? If the DL is larger in bore and stroke, I'm good with that.
2. Will the DL perches fit a stock DR bar?
3. Do you think the difference in brake line output locations will affect routing/operation?

I don't know about the other questions that you asked, but the previous owner of My DR installed an ASV "unbreakable" clutch on it. works well for me, but I have no idea how to tell which lever it is.

Hoping this helps.

Just a quick note, DO use the clip on the vacuum cap. I did not know about this, and although it was a tight fit mine just fell off during a ride, maybe some 300 miles after installing the tank. The crazy exhaust popping at idle immediately got me thinking of a vacuum leak. Anyway, not a nice thing to fix on the side of the road.

I see a lot of rubber products that are swelling up just from the gas fumes. Don't know if it is the ethanol or something else they are putting in there. The boat world is pulling their hair out due to these problems. They still run a lot of flexible fuel lines (unlike cars) and have vapor tanks with rubber like diaphrams.

I carry of couple of spares with me now. Use a small zip tie to hold it on. They have been lasting about 9 months before falling apart completely.
