I also have a Powerlet outlet installed into a hole I drilled on the very front of the left side cover:

My Garmin Map60csx is on the left side just above the crossbar, and the 12v outlet is on the right side handlebar, but below the crossbar. My 91 has factory speedo and tach, no room in the middle bar for extras.

You might check the GPS forum here, lots of pics and ideas.

Bluhduh Pushed the DR home

I was riding to work today and while sitting at a light I gave the DR a little bit of gas and it stumbled for a few seconds then stalled. I tried to restart and the bike would not. I started the long roll home periodically trying to start the bike again. Once it momentarily started then died. After 2 miles of pushing the bike started and I rode it home.

I am thinking I have crap in the carb plugging the jets. This happened once before on the freeway but cleared itself quickly after I maneuvered to the shoulder. Any other ideas out there? The bike is stock with a full Safari tank, only 3 months and 3k miles old.

Drain the float bowl and see what comes out and dont spill the little bit of gas thats in the float bowl drain nut so you can check for water or sediment.

Plan on tearing into the whole bike anyway so a good Carb cleaning is added to the list along with dielectric grease on all electrical connectors and grease in all bearings. Should be looking like your picture soon.

Is the tank venting properly?

I just picked up 2005 DR650 and finished setting it up last night. The only thing I need to do is put my 908 front and 606 rear on which will take place tomorrow after work. Getting ready for the Pine Barrens 500

Did you completely flush out and clean the tank before you installed it? If not, the carb (or the fuel filter in the carb inlet) may well be clogged. Those aftermarket tanks often come with a lot of crap inside and they need to be cleaned out before use.

Yes I did, I was amazed at the crap in there though. I wouldn't be surprised if a few pieces remained. Any way you look at it the carb will be thouroughly cleaned and I may even flush the tank again.

Shouldn't be a venting problem as it would have restarted earlier than it did.

Do us all (or maybe it's just me?) a favor and get one of those quiet inserts installed ASAP before more people get pissed from being awaked by another LOUD motorcycle.
To answer your question, Yes, the bike runs better with the new Two Brothers exaust. This is a racing exaust and is prolly making as much HP that a stock DR can give. The bike was wheeling easily in first and second in the dirt just by using the throttel only. I had a hard time doing that before with the stock exaust pipe. I think the new pipe, K/N air filter with the jet kit has given the bike an extra 3 or 4 HP. It's loud because it is a racing pipe.

Don't worry, I ordered the silencer tip yesterday. I actually ordered two different ones from Two Brothers. I had to purchase these because the bike is to loud for my taste also. All I am trying to do is get the ol DR to have as much power that it can. I do not want to wreck any family picnics while having a ride, that's for sure. Maybe I should have got the Q pipe, dunno, to late now. The new silencer tip says it will bring the pipe noise level down to 93 decibles. I think that this will be a great exaust after the silencer tip is installed. I will let you know and post a picture as well.
