Took a ride today after reducing the clutch free play. Downshifting was much improved, as was finding neutral. Surprising how much of a difference that 1 mm made.

Thanks, Klay, for the tip.

- A run on HWY 279
- A jaunt out Kane Creek Road

These are very competent motorcycles!!!

So the White Rim Trail is open all the way around? I guess so if you exited the west end. It was closed last year, by a wash out I think.
Enjoyed your videos, recognizing most of the areas.

It would take about 1 more hour to strip it down to the frame...

What's wrong with you guys, the purple frame is classic.

Tables showing piston FPM @ various rpm?

When I first went through all of the messages in this thread I came across a pair of tables showing speed by gear at various rpm for the DR with 15T and 16T sprockets. I'll be darned if I can find them again. I'd appreciate it if someone can tell me the message those tables were in. Thanks.

Yep, open! Lots of new concrete where they fixed what had been washed out. Didn't make it less scary though....

That's right. Years from now someone's gonna take one with original purple paint on Antiques Road Show

and have it appraised for $100,000.

And 40-45 fits it well. You can see the effect of stock gearing throughout the RPM range, and then what a larger sprocket would do. You can see that one tooth doesn't do a huge amount, esp. at 40-45 mph.

Stock 15/41 gearing--

I bought the raptor petcock and it works great, however the line for the fuel to exit is much bigger circumference than the inlet port on the carb. Im sure Im missing a simple fix in regards to a line that fits over both ends seamlessly. I was running a small fuel filter with a large line in and a small one out, but it bogged a few times so I took it off. Now I have 2 lines zipped together and dont like it.

What did you guys do to fix it?

For the life of me I can't figure out why peeps here keep recommending a Raptor petcock.

There is a cheap Yamaha petcock that IS AN EXCACT REPLACEMENT TO INCLUDE FUEL LINE SIZE!!!!

It is: Yamaha 23F-24500-11-00 - FUEL COCK ASSY 1 (4X8-24500-02-00) - A new o-ring comes with it.

I had two sizes of fuel line clamped together too and didn't like it. Stretching the little size over the big outlet of a Raptor petcock would be plain dumb IMO, just asking for it to split and leak. I took my Raptor petcock off and replaced it with the proper petcock listed above. At the time it was around $10 - I spent near that much on fuel line and clamps trying to use the Raptor model


Edit: I forgot to mention that I had to go through the hassle of cutting the main discharge tube down ... as received it was so high that I would have to switch to reserve with alot of gas left.

All these mods

I can't figure out why everyone wants to do all these modifications to the DR's.

Do the petcocks, jets, sprockets, carb works and various whatnots really make that much difference in the long run or is it simply for the sake of the hobby? (This being an honest question).

I like to do aesthetic mods, but tinkering with the aforementioned things... nah.
