Ha! Found the culprit: clogged fuel filter (paper core). Replaced it with a new spare (copper core) and sanDRina runs like a champ! Went for a 60 km test ride and no issues. I think that was it Continuing south tomorrow

Come on, motorcycle gods, what else you got? Let me have it.

I got jolted last night and told myself that 'give up' isn't in my dictionary. I beat my demons back in their cave and listened to the advice from ADV brethren who directed me to inspect this part.
If I don't make it to the next town tomorrow, I'll figure it out



Thanks!!!

No. I have what I call 'Adventure Wheels'. A 4.25x17 rear and a 2.75x19 front.
Makes the bike much feel more planted on the twisty pavement without giving up anything significant in off-road capability. It would be a bad idea to run a 150 tire on the stock rim.

Barrel and cyinder head paint?

Need some input. Can the barrel and cylinder head on the DR be painted with high temp paint (like from a rattle can) with any expectation of it holding up very well?

Can they be powder coated and would that hold up better?

Is there a better option?

thanks guys!

Looks like the previous owner did a proper job of bypassing the side stand and neutral safety switches. Under the tape there will likely be a jumper wire as described here:

Simple bike, simple problems

So glad you found the cause and solution.

Great news! So, looks like the few geniuses here who insisted it was fuel related ended up being correct. (I was not one backing that theory! )

Just goes to show ... sometimes even the simplest things can fool even the very experienced. It's happened to me ... many times.
But I'm so glad it appears NOT to be electronics!

Carbs are MUCH easier to sort out.

How would you guys like to pay for:
1. New Stator
2. New Rectifier/Regulator
3. New Coil
... and whatever else was purchased ... only to find out it was a simple case of a clogged filter.

Any bets some nice used Stators and other electronics will be turning up for sale soon in the Flea Market?

Ride On Jay!

This reminds me of the time my brother couldn't get his Harley 45 started and tore the whole thing apart just to find out he was out of fuel.

Great trip. Great photos. I rode around outside of Ridgecrest back in 1977.

Be sure to keep us posted about the swingarm issue.

Genius!!! You've made the DR infinitely more comfortable and you didn't have to buy a new seat.

I found this in Sagebrushocean's link:
There are 4 wires going into the connector for the side stand switch,
2 orange, one green & one orange with black tracer. You want to make
a jumper that connects one of the orange wires to the orange with
black tracer.

+1. I'm very happy with my Oxfords. The wiring can be delicate in spots so exercise caution when installing, but once they are on they work very well and seem pretty robust.
