but, the prices for the gsxr cans should be dropping; if not, don't buy one. i wouldn't pay over $100 shipped for one. now that kientech also has a midpipe set-up for the hyabusa can - which seems to be every bit as good as the gsxr1000 can, and a lot more plentiful - there's no reason to limit your search to these gsxr cans...

Thanks. I did not know that the Hayabusa can's would work. I just saw one GSXR can for $250 and was looking for an alternative to fit my thrifty wallet.

I did not think about it needing frequent repacking. I have a roll of insulation from Home Depot ofr my trials bike that could be used. Repacking is not so bad, but I do not want it to be loud.

I'll make sure and post pictures if I do it.

I think Star Tron costs much more to use plus it's for ethanol issues only yes?, & not continual cleaning & lubrication in the oil & thus fuel pumps, carbs, FI plus valve & piston carbon cleaning. i've looked into my spark plug hole and the top of my piston is clean. i've seen some heavily carboned DR pistons to know this is not always the case.
You sold me! Just ordered some from Amazon. I wonder how many others did too?

Hey, that's how I got my DR650. Reading about it on the internet and getting psyched. Winter blues and the Net, what a combination.

Yeah, I'm going to have to pick some up too. My poor ol bike is getting up in miles and years. Any preventative maintenance I can do to keep it running great is going to be on my list.

Thank you sir.

Now removed, just ordered a tool to remove rotor, my starter mechanism/motor seems noisy but now its apart, I can find nothing wrong, I have removed gears and ran the starter motor unloaded, it seems quiet. Its fair to say, Im puzzled.


When I get the rotor off, will I find rollers and springs? Anyone?

Welcome Wales.

Is your 'noisy' a squeal/squall when starting? Many of us have had that issue, it's the bushing in the starter on the right side (by the CCT). I greased mine about 30,000 miles ago and it hasn't made a sound since. I just took the cap off, put a wad of marine grease in the cup and reassembled it. Be sure you learn about the CCT (needing TDC, retracting the plunger and latching, releasing the plunger after installed).

If it's a mechanical crunching/grinding, yer on yer own.

Procycle did a nice photo shoot on the starter over here, including a port for future lubing.

Metal sound

I recently Big bored my bike. I went for a ride today, and while on the highway it started to make a very loud metal sound and died when I pulled over. I restarted the bike, and rode slowly home. Initially I thought the valves came undone, but after checking it, the sound remains. Any suggestions?

Here is a video of the sound:

CCT? sorry, not sure what that is. Yes, sounds like an old kawasaki starter on a 70s zed. The motor runs quiet when spinning free and without load.
Help!!!!!!

Sounds serious. Take it apart, start over. Something has broken or is out of spec. Probably an assembly error. Hope not too much is ruined internally.
Good luck.

I don't think it's inside the cylinder or it would've quit during that demo.

Cam chain maybe. auto decompressor or balancer??? don't run it anymore.

If you have the nerve to run it anymore you may be able to isolate the source by: holding a piece of heater hose to your ear and the other end close to diff areas of the bike. OR with handle of a large screwdriver stuck in your ear and touch the tip to diff spots on engine.
