Anyone got, seen or used their DR650 touring bags?

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

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

Sorry, I'm a little late to the party. If you look real close at those phillips head screws you'll notice a little dimple or punch mark located next to the phillips slot. That little dimple means that the phillips is a JASO, or some such jap specific, phillips pattern. A #2 or #3 US phillips will strip them suckers all day long. You did the right thing - chisel, vice grip, whatever, them off and replace with some socket head screws.

The DJ kit was the best $60 I ever spent on my DR.

P.S. Snap-on tools is the only company I've found that makes a screwdriver specific to the jap phillips.

Thanks for checking on that for me John. I'm very interested in following your experience with the rejet. Are you running the stock pipe?

I just found another problem with the second hand kit I just bought. The small washer is missing. I guess someone used the DJ150 and the washer from this kit. I hope this is the DJ needle and I think it is since it has six positions for the clip.

Can anyone tell me if I can find a substitute washer in a parts bin or hardware store that can be used? What size is it exactly? Pictures of it to show scale would be good. Thanks for any efforts.

I'm running the stock pipes. I'd love to change up but I could never live with the noise. Why can't they make a pipe with all the benefits and none of the noise? Laws of physics I suspect....

If you've got a used kit I wouldn't be suprised if you've got the stock needle and not the one that came with the kit. I know I put mine back in the kit for safe keeping. Just in case I'd need it in the future....or in other words I'll be throwing it out in a couple of years wondering why I hung on to it.

I think you can get a clip or washer elsewhere but I'm sure someone more knowledgable here can answer that for you. Have fun!!

First picture posting

Let's see if this works. If it did work the ride was out on Mormon Well Rd north of Vegas.

Well that helps. I was embarassed that I couldn't unscrew the tail light and was stripping the screws. And the damned thing was only screwed onto the plastic fender!

License plate bracket: Opinions please...

I would like to clean up my DR650's rear end as simply and cleanly as possible (without drilling holes etc.). There is a company that will produce metal items to spec at very reasonable prices provided more than 3 are ordered.

I want a simple aluminum bracket with one 50-55 degree bend that attaches to the existing 2 bolts under the fender. No mods needed. The lower part of the bracket (under the bend) is the shape and size of the license plate with 4 pre-drilled holes.

See Pic #1. This is a license plate holder with built-in LED available on the internet for $35. Available in chrome or black. Very clean looking. It would bolt over the plate and onto the bracket.

My question is: Will the stock wiring work with this as there will no longer be a red light, just the plate illuminator? Thanks in advance!
