You're right, of course.

Not choked!

A choke works by restricting the air flow, whereas an enrichment circuit works by adding extra fuel. A choke requires a fast idle cam or something akin to it (or you have to hold the throttle open manually), whereas an enrichment circuit adds a little extra air simultaneously with the extra fuel, so the fast idle is already built in.

Thanks for the clarification, Derek. I assumed that it served the same function as a choke. All I know is that I pull out the button whenever it is cold...it starts...after the motor is warmed up, I push it in & go!

Another difference, the stock petcock is 1" taller than the Acerbis. This might be a problem since the uphill loop is now 1" higher. Note: ignore the vacuum port, which is less than 1" (a bit misleading in the photo).


The uphill loop and potential vacuum lock. When the fuel level gets low, there isn't enough head pressure to overcome the air bubble in the loop. This means the bike quits running even though you can still see gas in the tank. It's a common problem on both the IMS and Safari aftermarket tanks, some work, some don't. I haven't heard anything on the Acerbis yet.

I just fitted my bike with the same tank and used the provided screws . what i did for the fuel line was a long loop that does a complete circle . I also got my fuel intake to the carb twisted forward like every one talks about. got 324 KM out of the tank before i switched to reserve

Just about every bike I have ever been around with an FCR had a choke on it. My stock WR had a choke on it, and my DR with an FCR has a choke on it.

Added: I am sure you are going to chime in about the technical difference between a choke and an enricher circuit, but for the average person they are they same in the way they work to warm a cold bike up.


This should answer your question....

The answer to all three questions is no.

If the bike quits before the tank is empty, I'll be turning the carb inlet too. Do you have a photo of the fuel line routing?

Which petcock did you use?

324 km, that's about 73 miles right?

I posted this up about a year ago, but here it is again. If you turn the carb inlet to the rear, no high spots and you can get all the fuel out. It is also in the bike specific thread under fuel system. It's an IMS tank with Raptor petcock.

Timely repost.

Cool2 Dr?

Before I reach for a Kleenex, er, tissue, let's get back to DR's.

Here is the fiberglass tank I made with my first attempt at painting with base and 2 part clear coat.
And my first ever buffing and polishing effort.
It's not great, but good enough for a dirt bike



I was trying to get a good reflection on it.







All I have left to do is the lettering and pinstripes on the tank and tail, and to mount the oil cooler, chain, and chain guide...
It has been a fun project and I look forward to riding it.
Although I will be riding my other DR a lot more often. Now I have a street (and smooth dirt road) hot rod as well as my dual sport DR that is far more comfortable to ride.

Love it or hate it but it beats some of the boring posts recently.
If only because it has pictures

So that's what my wife's been telling me about.

Meanwhile, south of the border...



Tires are looking good. MEFO rear at 4200 miles, still round and fun to ride on. It'll start to get square at about 6,000 but still have life in it. Good all round touring tire- works very well on lots of road surfaces and lasts a long time.



I'm running the Heidenau k60 Scout on front for it's long life and resistance to cupping. The MEFO front cups badly by 5,000 miles. Heidenau feels better to me in the dirt also. Looks like it's got a lot of life left in it.



We happened on the clubhouse of a local motorcycle club. 'Respect Motorcyclists!!" Right on.

JagLite - love it. That tank reminds me of a '70's CZ tank a little. Very nicely done.
