Yes, easily accessible... after splitting the cases

Thanks for the confirmation. Splitting the cases? Not going to happen. I'll manage.

Get one of these from Procycle for less than $25.

Its #10 in this diagram http://www.mrcycles.com/fiche_sectio...0#.UX649MqQOyA

I had my oil sight glass poked out (actually in) by a downed tree branch and am trying to flush out the engine. Details here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=882879

Based on peering in from the left side where I have the clutch cover off, I think the sump oil screen is only accessible by splitting the cases. But there is a slim chance it could be accessible under the stator cover. Anybody know for sure?
'Any chance you could gently backflow that with oil, diesel, air or the like? Insert a thin vacuum tube and vacuum the screen?

I wouldnt call it common but it's not unheard of, I have seen it personally though.

I believe Procycle ships worldwide. I'm sure he'll chime in otherwise.

Yeah, that's my fallback plan is something like that. Squirt some kerosene down the passage that goes to the screen in the sump. Not possible to get underneath it to vacuum it though.

Interestingly, since I ceased manufacture, is seems that Suzuki are now making them too, so you may be able to source one via them in the UK. VSM are selling them here in Oz and also ship overseas I believe.

Just posted on the Oz thread, one recently fitted:

Thanks guys so whats reason for it coming out i was thinking to much crankcase pressure blocked breather etc

Some just do.

There is a pressurised oil feed right behind the seal. Oil comes from the pump to the space behind the seal, contained by the inner seal on the countershaft bearing, then into a hole in the countershaft for distribution to the gears.

Max oil pressure is when the oil is cold at startup. There is minimal crank pressure then, and even so, its shielded from crank pressure by the seal on the css bearing.

The seal is only retained by friction, so needs to be assembled dry. There is also a suggestion that some cases were machined a bit oversize and Suzuki have released an oversized seal, but dunno about that.

Hello,

I have a plan to install kick start mechanism to my 93`dr650SE. Originally it has only electric start. Has anybody tried to do it? Tips, advices?

I got a couple questions the other day that I can't answer so I figured I would ask here:

A couple of the bearings inside the cases have dust seals on them. Why are they retained inside the motor and what will happen if they are removed?

The only thing I could think of is related to circuit pressure? Couldn't think of any real downside other than maybe reduced pressure but I would assume the bearings would get enough oil on them through spray...

Should I tell the guy to take his motor back out and apart or will he be ok?

Thanks.

The seals on those bearings cause oil from the oil pump to be directed through passages in the transmission shafts. Installing unsealed bearings will allow the oil to just flow through the bearing and drain into the bottom of the case instead of being channeled to the inside of the transmission gears and to the clutch. If somebody put their motor together without the bearing seals they are risking premature transmission and clutch failure.

I run the same 5.11 vest. It's better than the m/c specific vests, IMHO.
