Nice sound. (Question: How do you put the You Tube video into your post?)

Question Airborne DR650's

Is it wrong to jump with a DR650?

I ask because so far in attempts to see what my new bike can do, I've found it excellent on every surface and in the air, with the only exception being sandy dirt roads (and I think thats mostly due to using the Trail Wings at standard pressure). I'm a little concerned I might be pushing the bike too hard. Its a stock 07 DR650SE w/ 300kms.

Whats your thoughts?

No, it is not wrong to jump a DR650! The only bad part is landing...

After reassessing what happened a couple years ago, heed this warning. I caught some air on my 97 DR650SE and upon landing, my chain popped off and some teeth on my rear sprocket got chewed up. I think the chain derailed due to the upper chain roller and extreme compression of the suspension. Luckily the roller didn't break out of the frame! Make sure you remove the top roller before jumping!

What kind of bar-ends will fit in my Renthal bars? I'm riding around with the guts from my Acerbis hand guards, but haven't found anything that will fit. Inner diameter is just over 1/2"

Don't know why I didn't think of posting this here sooner. I just rode my '98 from Detroit to Labrador and back. I did a ride report and listed my mods and camping gear for anyone interested:

IMS shifter....DR650SE....?

Is there a longer aftermarket shift lever available for a 2007 DR650SE? I've seen some ads that say "not available for the S model". Thanks in advance!

Imo, to survive hard landings you must have a stiff enough suspension, for your weight, not to bottem out on landing. Bent wheels may result among other things. Removing the upper roller can result in a cracked or broken engine case. The roller is what keeps the chain in contact with the counter shaft sprocket. If the chain would jump off the c/s sprocket it can wad up between the case and c/s resulting in a cracked or broken case. I've seen this on race bikes & quads. This can also happen with a loose chain as the rear sprocket tries to outrun the c/s sprocket on deceleration. Just my $.02 Disclaimer: I may be full of crap.

Jesse sells a full-on adjustable chain guide. Pic on Kientech website. There's another one out there also... forget the make. I don't know if it would absolutely PREVENT a chain get-off, but it would sure make it much more rare.

Seat mounting tabs defeat seat bumpers

Maybe i'm the only one over anal-yzing the seat issues... trying to find that perfect seat mod. I have good seat reworks now... low and flattish toward the rear, pretty ground-level. But it finally dawned on me that the rigid mounting of the seat completely defeats the presence of those rubber bumpers on the bottom. That steel that the seat-mount tabs are made from is very very hard. Try widening that hole to a slot and you'll see what I mean [broken dremel bits, broken drill bits....]. Anyway, when you bolt that seat on, it ain't going to move up and down more than a millimeter if that. So, I just dispensed with the bolts altogether. I have a piece of stiff wire restraining my seat from flying upward, but allows it to flex downward. it helps....

With that done, now I can experiment with different size bumpers, and different material, like gel pads between the seat pan and rails. Also, I lowered the seat at the rear by replacing the rearward bumpers with much smaller rubber pads.

For those that haven't seen other posts on this topic... I speculate that the seat foam for a DR350 is dimensionally the same as DR650. If so, know that Guts Racing makes replacement seat foam for DR350 seats, in Tall/Stock/Short sizes, and varying density [soft, hard....]. Someday I'll get around to trying a tall/soft combo, then cut the top like my others, flatten it out and make it a tad wider. That would result in a tallish position, but finally you would have enough foam there to do some good....

hay anyone have this happen to them the other day I shut off my dr650 and locked the handle bars like I always do when I went to walk away I noticed that the tail light was still lit may be even the brake light don't know for sure but when I turned the key back to the start position then back to lock the tail light was off.. this is got me worried that I might drain the batt. if I don't address this issue now. can any one offer me some advice ? the bike is an 07 and No mods to the electrical have been made yet.

sounds like you might have inadvertently put the ignition switch into the park position instead of the lock position. from right to left the key positions are: on, off, lock, and park.
the "park" position will cause the situation that you described (this is intended for temporary road-side parking). just don't go so far left with the key and you'll be alright. the bars will lock, but the tail-light won't come on. hope this helps.
