Holy Crap

I did the Dynajet mod, and all I can say is holy crap!!! That is wild. I'm putting the 15t back on because I'm commuting and because I don't think it will be necessary. The only thing I can say about it is that you may need to know the basics of the carb, which I did not, but I learned. It's pretty obvious. Great mod.
Thanks for the help.

The short answer is yes. I can and did change the seat just yesterday when I put the new Corbin on the bike without removing them. I had to bend the side plates out a bit to get to the bolts. If you need the side plates off, you do need to remove the racks but that is no big deal.

They do. I have the BBQ rack on my DR650, and fitted the e-bay side racks on as well. You'll need to buy a longer bolt for the left rear mount, as it uses the same mount location as the BBQ rack on that side.

The BBQ and side racks have held up well so far, including a 1300 mile trip down the Continental Divide loaded with soft panniers.

DRdude, please let us know exactly what mod/s you did with the re-jet. Also I would like to hear more of the results after you have more time with it since I have a kit sitting here waiting for me to have time to play. Thanks.

I'm trying to figure out how far I want to go. I want to up the juice without destroying the fuel economy too much. I'm waiting for the extended mixture screw from Jessie to arrive before I get started.

OIl change wrench sizes?

We keep our DRs in storage and I want to get them ready for winter. As I'm flying, I can't take my whole toolbox and just want to take the few wrenches I need. Can someone confirm the wrench sizes for the drain bolt and the 3 filter bolts. Thanks.

I switch between the 14T and 15T depending on whether I'm commuting or in the woods. However, with the mod. I'm much, much happier with the 15T for commuting. The 14T is still necessary for the woods though for me.

Some notes, I went with the air box mod, drilled the slide and a 155 main jet. Turned the screw to 1 1/8 turn. Bike was fantastic but I started to notice my bike lagging after sitting at a stop and then finally it stalled on me at a light so I knew it wasn't in my head. I contacted Jesse and described it and he had me turn it back to 3/4 turn. Took care of the problem.

interesting. I did the airbox, did not do the slide, and put on the 160. He had written some notes on my directions and had some arrows for the stock muffler. It looked like he was reccomending the 160. Also had some stall problems so I backed out the fuel screw 1/2 turn and it seemed to fix it. I'll know more after I've ridden it a bit. The throttle is very sensitive. I may have put the cables to the guv. on tighter than they were when I put the carb back on, or it could be the jetting. Either way, it is a big difference.

Thanks John. I hope everyone that has played with carb mods will let us know what they have done and what they think of the results. I have read a lot about different carb mods and I don't think I will drill my slide.

A great source of reading about carb tinkering was from Thumper Talk with MXRob's odyssey with the DR650 jetting modifications. Right when you think he has the ultimate carb setup he moves off in other directions in his quest for power. It was a long but fun read.

Question Cam drive chain tensioner

Anyone seen/experienced any oil leak around the cam drive chain tensioner? I have just noticed some oil residue on the tensioner itself and the fins around it. Weird, nothing very active looking, but suspicious...

One bolts on the passenger peg hole and the other bolts on the exhaust bolt. So it is below your BBQ rack. They are really smaller than they look. I bought them for side protection, not so much for the panniers. Decided not to use them, though, They are well made and would seem to work well with over the seat soft bags.

Only if you needed to do some work. But if you just wanted to get the seat off, no problem. The racks come off in 30 seconds anyway. 2 allen bolts is all.
