Dunno. I don't see why not but the long shaft with bearing support looks like a much more robust design. If I had to replace a starter I would seriously consider getting the old style and adding the support bearing.

I installed a new horn yesterday ( I haven't had a working one for at least 6 months), then I turned the power on and pressed the horn switch, but there was no sound, so I checked the electrical connectivity.
When I bypassed the switch with a screwdriver the multimeter would read 13V where the horn plugs in, so the switch was the problem.....

I dissembled the entire left hand control and cleaned the inside of the horn switch with a pipe cleaner, turned the power on, pressed the horn switch, and the multimeter read 13V.

I thought it was all fixed, so I reassembled the control unit to the handle bar, turned the power on and pressed the switch to see if it was working properly ........NOPE.

So then I disassembled the entire control unit AGAIN to figure out why the switch wasn’t making contact.

It turns out the horn switch was not flush with the plastic exterior of the control unit, so I wedged a piece of a zip-tie in the crevice and brought the crooked end of the horn switch forward and flush.

I reassembled the unit (halfway this time) and tested the switch... BINGO, 13V on the multimeter.

2 hours later everything works and the horn fires up nicely...

Good point - newer is not necessarily better.

The long shaft starter is still used in their ATVs. It's available from several aftermarket suppliers.

Clymer Manuals Suzuki Dr650 1993-2013

I have just ordered my copy of the Clymer Manual.



Gift wrapped

From me to me...

I know you are Gurus, but I am a new-be and this will reassure me, when I will upgrade my suspension next spring, just saying.

The Clymer people finally got tired of listening to me carp on about the lack of an aftermarket manual for the DR650. I've been asking for this for YEARS.

I have one sample copy. It looks pretty good. I haven't had time yet to make sure they didn't replicate the errors in the factory manual.

ProCycle should have the first shipment of Clymer books in about 2 weeks.

Topic hijack - is it possible to buy a gasket for the locking gas cap found on the IMS tank? I think my tank and cap are about 12 years old and the gasket doesn't seal well.

Must remember to install those two countershaft seal retainers we bought from you - they look great.

We haven't been able to get gaskets separately.

You folks just let me know if you need a bearing and clip to go with that starter.

I have to say my eye's light up when I saw those billet caps.....but I about shit a brick when I saw the price....50 bucks and they don't even lock? And when the gasket fails in a couple years I gotta buy a whole nother cap???
Fug that.........

I've sent an email to find out if we can get gaskets separately. Seems ludicrous that you can't.
