re: Everglades

Ever have to run from an alligator??

re: 780/790

Jeff's been running his hard for ages (like he just said) and it's fine. Adding 20 hp to an almost-40-hp motor isn't that big of a deal. I ran my WRX at 400 hp (224 stock) for four years and it was still running strong when I demodded it to get rid of the payment (since I ride 99% of the time).

re: Fork Solution Kit

I FINALLY rode my DR today after last weekend's Fork Solution Kit installation... .47kg springs and Gold Valves. WOW, nice improvement!! All I could do was ride asphalt and an unusually smooth stretch of "what used to be a gravel road." But the few bumps I did hit were much better controlled than before. Hey, to whomever it was that bought my Intiminators -- get the stiffer springs! I think they'll work better with something better than the stock sponges.

It's only on decel when really opening it up that the popping starts to get bad.

In an effort to remedy, I tried adjusting the fuel screw, seem to improve a bit the wider it's open, but still present no matter what. However, it does go away if I throw the choke wide open...
It will pop on decel.
The BST carb has no coasting enrichener.

Tune for performance.

Here's a pic from one of my rides into the Everglades




Here's a couple of the pics I got of the Endangered Florida Panther during my Everglades ride..
This is exactly what my DR was purchased for, though as it turns out I love offroading just as much as photography. Very nice pictures..

My other one doesn't pop much at all. You don't think tweaking that needle a bit might help? I find it curious that it all but goes away when the choke is opened up.

That's because the choke is an enrichment circuit.

Almost there.....
Two Things:
Raise idle
Go back to stock muffler

My concern would be the trans ... and 3rd gear specifically.

Probably be fine if not abused.
Too few examples out there to get much feed back.

When I put pressure on the throttle (closed, but a bit of pressure so it's opened just a tiny bit), the decel popping disappears. I'm running at 1350 rpm instead of the recommended 1500, so I bet if I just bumped the idle up a little bit, problem solved. But, the decel popping is not bad and doesn't bother me yet.

When I bought my '06 DR650 (in '06) it had an FMF on it. With that pipe the De-Cell DID bother me some. With the stock muffler it does not. My idle is higher than standard so that helps. A richer Pilot helps too ... but screw up fuel economy and overall performance.

I think around 1500 RPM idle is about right to reduce de-cell popping.

Another Tip! EAR PLUGS!

spokes

I'm trying to put a replacement spoke in and have gotten the broken one off but for the life of me, I cannot get the thread started on the new one.

Is there a trick to get the thread started; as it the threads are touching but seems they're bit short (they're the right ones for the bike though)??

thanks

Mine's the same... get over it.

Are you sure you got the right hub side spoke? The sprocket hub and brake hub are different diameters. The brake hub side spokes are longer.

Well I think I will have to look else where cause the dr350 spring is 2.25 id at the top and 2 id at the bottom and the 650 spring is a inch shorter than my 350 spring.

The correct length spoke will be longer than the distance from the hub spoke hole to the rim spoke hole.
That means when you are starting to screw the spoke nipple on, the nipple will not be through the rim much, if any at all.
Sometimes you have to grind the end of the spoke off so it doesn't puncture the tube.

Sounds like you are using the short spoke on the long spoke side which won't work.
