No need it's a plug and play kit, oil feed is from the 17mm headed main oil gallery feed just below the oil filter housing and return is via the replacement oil filter housing

Looks pretty darn vulnerable in a tip over. I'll pass, never had a problem with the bike overheating anyway and I live in a desert.

Wow, that's awesome. Count me in too. Someone should grab a bunch of these and sell them on eBay.

i'm pretty sure my leg would protect that set up from damage in a go-down.

The OE oil cooler alone is $331.51
As well as the other pipes,connectors you will also be needing a new clutch cover for the oil return $$$$$$$$$$$

I know it's not Suzuki quality but a sensible priced option

Bike now idles poorly

So the back story is that my DR200 has been sitting under a cover for a good month because of all of the snow that Virginia was getting. Last week, I had to drain the fuel (which had become very gunky) and clean the connecting bolt for the starter wire.
Today, I decided that I would start the bike up and let the engine run for a good 15-20 minutes before riding so that it could warm up and kinda clear its system after sitting for a month.
The problem now is that the bike idles poorly. I stood there for 15 minutes holding the throttle so that the engine wouldn't die, which happened twice when I let go of the throttle. What seems to be wrong? Could it be a carburetor or spark plug issue? What can I do to fix this?

I will also note that the bike definitely has gas. I bought a small gas can and filled it up, so I'm going to add a little fresh gas to the tank to see if that helps after I post this.

It's likely the carb is a little dirty. Maybe fresh gas will clear it.

Carberator Vent Hose?

On the right side of the carburetor there are two hose's the front one goes to the fuel petcock (if you have the original petcock otherwise it is caped off), where does the rear hose on the right go? It looks to me like it sits in a clip on the top of the air box, but that sure looks like an easy way for dust to get into the carburetor? If someone could go take a quick look at their it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Your pilot jet is clogged.... The PJ orifice is not much bigger that a few human hairs.... It plugs up easy after fuel is gunked up..... Remove the fuel line, and vacuum line.....throttle cable as well..... Loosen the two clamps...Rotate the carb so you can take the bowl off.....remove the pilot jet....NOT the center positioned one where the needle goes......Clean it good...or better yet get a new one...it only cost a few bucks.......
