I'm so glad you have it sorted out!
For future reference - one way to help diagnose a fuel flow problem is to engage the choke as soon as the misfiring starts. If running on choke makes a big improvement it's almost certain that there is a fuel starvation problem.

It came with a Sargent seat, so I think I'll stick with that for a while

Awesome! Thanks!

How are yopu finding the Scorpion Rally. I really like the 21" fronts, but I note you are running a 19 which has a blockier tread, I guess better matched to the rear.

About to pull the trigger on a 19" front too.
Who makes that front brake rotor ?
Assume it's the stock size ?

Is pulling the enrichener (choke) going to help if the problem is that there's no fuel in the carb?

Galfer brake, stock size, definitely improved braking

When the bike is misfiring there is still fuel in the carb - just not enough for smooth running. The enrichener will suck up enough fuel to stop the misfiring. If pulling the choke temporarily solves the problem then you are pointed in the right direction for finding the source of the problem.

Is the 19" front wheel of a width that the rear OEM rim can stay, or does the rear still have to be changed out for balance like with SM wheels?

This time I had just gotten an ad from Aerostitch for Bikemaster heated grips for $59 which seemed decent so I ordered them. Then Aerostitch told me they were back ordered until January so I cancelled and found the same grips for $45 and $5 shipping from Koups Cycle shop. Started to install them on my Moto Guzzi last night. Just need to run one ground wire, one wire to a switch source, runs the wires from the battery to the front of the bike, use a few zip ties, and put the grips on. I just have to do the last part yet but everything is working.

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!!!
Wierd! Glad it was something simple. If that ain't a real WTF momement I don't know what is!

Thanks for that.

Did you notice an improvement over the stock rotor while using the 19" fornt wheel or did you fit the Galfer when you fitted the 19" wheel ?

@ADV Grifter: I'm so glad it was fuel related, much easier to solve mechanical problems Yeah, my bad that I repositioned the fuel filter recently so that it was hidden from view. The rectifier and coil were donated by DR riders in South Africa. Hopefully now I'll get there and give them back
@Emmbeedee: (at myself, too)
@procycle: great tip, will remember that
@Randomroad: That's exactly what I yelled out and then a big smile grew on my face

New Springs

Got my new springs installed on the 2006 DR this Thanksgiving weekend. NO photos taken. Only broke one 3/8" ratchet handle and a 3/8" extension. Probably needed a 1/2" drive socket set. That is on the shopping list.

8.3 kg/mm rear spring (black)
0.55 kg/mm fork springs

Took it for a 20 mile test ride in the rain and it's much better than stock OEM. Not nearly so much brake dive. The suspension feels slightly stiff, but me being used to the OEM springs, I have some learning to do. The stiffness will be good for hauling adventure camping equipment.
