Actually that's the whole point of the "T". You can run one side of the vent up high (even up to the steering head), and the other (original) side down low so the high side only comes into use if the low side is plugged or in a position to draw water in.

wavygravy87, I have the Wolfman Gen I racks with the Expedition Bags as well as the Wolfman 1 gallon H2O tank. I am very happy with that setup. I can't tell you anything about the Gen II racks. I got mine from Procycle. Maybe Jeff knows what the differences are between Gen I and Gen II.

Can anyone tell me when the U.S. DR650 model designation changed from DR650S to the DR650SE?

Thanks

I'm fairly sure it was in 1996 when it became the DR650SE (with the release of the Gen2 bike we're talking about here).

Is the difference the fact you can put the crossbar on the gen 2?

High Compression Piston

My bike has all the usual mods (I.e. pumper carb, power bomb, FMF Q4, suspension etc). Right now it lifts the front end on a roll in first and almost in second? For those of you who have done the high compression piston mod can you tell me if it will provide any significant improvement in felt power over what I already have using the stock cam?

Bring that thing up to 5000+ft and we can compare

I know this probably lost in the mix so I'll ask again. I recently bought the iridium spark plugs, one step hotter. is this going to be okay running 790 kit?

Yeah the new ones have a tab for mounting a crossbar. From what I can see, the Gen 2 racks mount a little further back and up than the originals. Also the Gen 1 had one mounting point on the rear vs. two on the Gen 2. The single rear mount would prevent any hiccups when mounting to bikes with custom (homemade ) racks. But it probably doesn't make a lick of difference so I'll just order from somewhere cheap and see what shows up

Thanks for the advice I may try and give him a shout tomorrow

I do like Iridium plugs ... but, far as I know, the ones I bought were same heat range as stock plugs. I find Denso plugs better than NGK ... but are usually more expensive. (double last I checked)

Iridium plugs last longer, burn a bit cleaner. Starting, idle and MPG all just a bit better. I've used them for the last 40,000 miles or so ... all good.
Stock plugs on my bike were WORN OUT at 8K miles.
Iridium goes to 20K.

Suzuki engineers are a bucket-load smarter than I am and I see no reason to question their judgement on plug heat range. If anything, the 790 will make more heat and a cooler plug would seem to be more appropriate. You will have heap of time and money in this upgrade, don't melt it.

Perhaps Jeff will reply, if not, a PM or e-mail would be prudent.

Good point and probably the cause of that.



Probably is happening on other threads too, just noticed it on this one.
i am now preconditioned to immediately look at the top right side of the page for the page number; if it hasn't gone to the next page, and it shows you are still one page from the "last" page, it means you are actually on the last page. audiokarma.org also has the same glitch...
