Ok, I'm not usually envious of other guy's "toys" ...that thing is pretty trick!

Mine looks like it has been used as a rodeo barell!

Derek does probably carry those. I've purchased a bunch of BST40 parts from him and found his prices reasonable, shipping quick & fair. I've also spent some time on the phone with Derek and found his advice very helpful.

I had the guys in Fabrication make some brackets and the guys in electrical class wire up these Vision x Solstice LED's. The lights work great at dusk. Can only work better at night.

What front end is that? Makes the bike look like it's been on a diet. Looks skinny compared to stock.

Thanks again for your help,

Do you have a stock Suzuki shock on the rear and have you done the factory lowering option? It's good for 1-1/2".

Found a pic. If your shock has two lower bolt positions and the bolt is in the lower hole like this, you're at the stock height. If you put the bolt in the upper hole, the rear suspension will be 1-1/2" lower. Let us know, as there's another step, your spring seat mounting position.

The important thing is how much of your reserve can you use. I would strap on a 5 liter fuel jug and run out your reserve ... just so you know your TRUE range.

If you can use all the gas on reserve, you're good. If there's much fuel left when the bike quits, then you might have to decide if you want to 'force' the carb elbow to turn or not.

Lowering links

Hello,

Thanks for all who responded. The shock is stock but have stiffer spring on it due to my fat ass!!
The shock has been lowered already. The RED CIRCLE is fine.
ProCycle, understood OK, just will have to lower forks more to see if that is enough.
Now what about that shock spring seat height???

I must be really short!!

Thanks again,

Heirhead

Did you lower the shock bolt or was it done by someone else? Maybe the shock spring seat height has already been taken care of. Ride the bike, if the tire isn't hitting the fender, you should be fine. I don't have a way to show or explain how it's done. It's in the service manual if you have access to one.

Edit: I found a photo, posted it and an explanation on 11-9-2012.

Nice setup.
Is that the giant loop Buck n roll tank bag? Does it work ok, ie stay up on the sides of the tank above your knees ?
I have looked at pics of these but never seen one on a DR. I have a Safari tank and it looked like the bars would hit it on full lock. That headlight looks awesome, although ive read comments on it causing buffeting/turbulence ?>
Cheers Phil

i have an IMS tank w/ their petcock and stock carb. i did not rotate my inlet tube and thus have a loop in my fuel line. i've run my bike bone dry in the tank. i wondered if the loop would affect things at the end of fuel and it did not.
