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.

Petcock question...

Is there an "off" position for the petcock? Neither the manual nor the petcock markings seem to show such a thing, yet there are times I would like to know that fuel flow is blocked.

My new blue '07 has a whopping 15 miles on the odometer, but WOW, what a bike! Thanks for all the good wisdom I've absorbed on this thread.

Cheers... Jim

No. The stock petcock has three settings- ON, PRI, and RES. PRI is will flow fuel whether the engine is on or not. Use this when the bike has been sitting for a while, and the fuel level in the carb is low. Bikes start much easier when there is fuel The other two settings will only flow fuel when the engine is running and providing a vacuum signal to the petcock.

The fuel flow is "blocked" by the inlet valve in the carb. The float keeps this valve closed until more gas is needed. As long as it's doing its job, you are fine...

Here' my simple setup:

1. Take a Battery Tender fused SAE lead and run from battery (had to lengthen the lead I had laying around).


2. Run lead along wire harness @ top frame tube.


3. Add SAE accessory socket found at your neighborhood WallyWorld.

Affix to speedo with a heavy-duty zip tie and some foam support.

Plug in to Battery Tender Lead


4. Add GPS.

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.
How recent was your tank swap? Junk from tank clogging the main or carb inlet filter?
Just a thought.

DynoJet Tuning

Proud owner of a 2006 DR650 SE but it ran a little lean right out of the show room. Dealer said that most guys install a jet kit and that solves the problem. I got a Dynojet kit, 3138 for a DR650 S and here's the deal: it idles smooth and runs really well on light throttle but when I call for the horsepower it dies and then as I let off the throttle is comes back to life and then surges with a burst of power. Here's my setup: stock pipe and airbox, idle mixture 2.5 turns from set, DJ 150 jet with needle at fourth notch. I checked and double checked all vacuum hoses and I also removed the inline fuel filter. I live in Florida so that's practically sea level. From what I can tell the bike is running rich but I'm no pro at this. Any suggestions?
I am new to the form and I have learned a lot about the bike from all of the postings that I have read.
Thanks!
