I didn't like 16/42 riding 2up with luggage on a mostly-stock DR with just the Procycle carb kit and a UNI filter at sea level with just moderate headwinds. 15/41 was about as tall as I liked. If you don't ride 2up, or your DR puts more than 40WHP down, you might like gearing taller than 15/41.

If you fight headwinds a lot, your passenger/luggage load is fairly "considerable", or your DR isn't putting down more than 35WHP, you may prefer the stock 15/42 or some shorter gearing.

BTW, I don't use a fairing/screen.
I agree with Kommando but for me a more significant question is why would someone choose this bike for that kind of duty. You CAN do it just as you can ride single track on an FJR1300 but neither one would be much fun IMO.

Temperture readings from those two locations could be significantly different.

.

Trailtech do offer an alternative sensor that bolts in to the sump, I believe, as an alternative to the Spark Plug Ring. I chose to just go the way I did and it has worked out nicely. The vapour comes stock with the spark plug setup because it's cheaper for them to produce and supply but offer the alternative, more expensive option aftermarket. Obviously the two locations (spark plug or oil) are going to offer different ranges of temps.

My logic was that a water cooled engine temp guage measures coolant temperature and not cylinder head temperature. So an oil cooled bike like the DR650 could also measure oil temp in a similar way.

But that smaller hose (the one "that has nothing") does run to the carb like I got it, correct Cyber ? Take a look-see for me


The top hose is correct. It it the carb vent.
The bottom hose, well, I've got no hose where you have a hose.

I can double check when I get home but I'm pretty sure i don't have anything connected to there and I just checked the parts fiche and I don't see any hose there either.

I think DP added the yellow filter to this hose. Looks like it could use it. I'm pretty sure it's the float bowl vent to atmospheric pressure, there's very little actual air flow.

I like the lower rpm the 16/42 gives me at 60+ mph, I'm running it right now. But I don't use 5th until 50+ mph. When the snow melts, and I can ride the forest service roads again, I'll go back to the stock 15/42.

Yes, thats what I did ER70S. And I just slightly re-routed it over away from the airbox "blowhole" so as not to block it.

Some answers probably HERE

Hope it helps make your decision. Off the top - Adam sold his DR with 75K Miles on the odo and somebody here still has it.
