Talking Mod Was Worth It

Can't wait to put my 14T sprocket back on. Between the two the fun factor should be back on par.

Thanks for your help everyone!

but is that all there is? Does IMS make a shifter that works? Or anyone else? I'm finding there are just not a lot of aftermarket parts for the DR...

Looking for a part

Hi, I have seen at least one website offering a Rear Brake Master Cylinder Guard for the DR650, similar to the one made for the KLR, but I can't seem to find it now. Does anyone have a link to the site selling this item? I've searched the boards, but nothing came up showing a link.
Thanks,

TPI. I've purchased several items from them and they've been great to work with. Small company with the kind of service you'd expect from people that care.

Question How about these touring bags?

http://www.tpimotorcycleparts.com/

Anyone got, seen or used their DR650 touring bags?

They look good, no extra installation and have aluminium backing. Are they safe?

Rough Idle

My DR is idling very rough.
It has about 2000 miles on it and is an '06. I have not done any engine mods to it, but have changed the front sprocket, springs and tank. I broke my hand riding so the bike sat for about 2 months. I was given advice on TT to take off the carb and clean it. Any one have any other ideas? Should I do the Jesse Dynajet mod or replace any screws since I have to take the carb off? any advice is appreciated. I'm a little pissed that it needs cleaning so soon.
Thank You

All I can say is I just went through a similair experience. Not identical but close enought to tell you to get it over with and do it. My bike is alive again and Happy Man is once again Happy!! It was extremely easy, except for the bowl screws.... I did mine last night, or this morning depending on how you look at it, and it was a great experience. I do all my own work but had stayed away from the carb. I'm glad I've done it and I'm looking at three of my other bikes thinking "they're next".

After the DynoJet mod I'm not sure my Beemer is gonna see much light of day anymore.....

Any of the bags will cook on a longer ride if you don't have a frame of some sort (you can make your own) keeping them away from the muffler. Seems to be most peoples experience anyway.

They work pretty well, and don't crunch when things go tippy. Bags come off easy too.


Here's another cool option - more water proof and expandable.

The Aussie bags rock, but Yukons work well too. Ask for the rain covers if you go with the Yukon's - keeps dust out well too.

It was 3:30 this morning and I've got to say my memory is a little hazy. I think it was a 155 per Jesse's recomendation but I'll need to go and check my kit to see for sure. I'll try to remember to post it for you later.

Cool2 Main Jet Size

Yes, I just confirmed that I went with the 155. It was simple to do and now that I've done it I'd like to play around some more when I get time. The bike runs great so I've no need to change it but I'd like to learn more through experimentation so when I can spare the time I'm going to try the 150 just to see what happens. Then I think my TTR is gonna get a re-jet too!

That needle jet clogs after you've cleaned the carb up, then use SeaFoam in the gas to keep it cleaned out. No amount of carb mods will help if the jets are dirty.
