If you opened up your airbox without changing anything else, you are indeed running very, very lean. If you turn out your idle screw, it ought to be a lot less cold-blooded.

what airbox mod? the 3 stock openings in the airbox have a larger total area than the carb throat dia which means the carb is the restriction to airflow into the cylinder and not the airbox.

We're talking about the idle mixture screw here, the one in the recessed well on the underside of the engine side of the front of the carb here, not the idle stop on the side of the carb.

I think we're getting confused between the idle speed screw and the idle mixture screw. If you screw the idle speed screw in (not out), all that will happen is that the bike will idle faster.

Since you haven't yet modified your carb, you don't have access to the idle mixture screw, which is covered by a pressed-in brass plug, to prevent people from messing up the lean idle setting which gives good emissions performance.

The Kientech kit supplies a longer idle mixture screw, which, after you trim the shroud, allows you to adjust the idle mixture easily, either rich (out) or lean (in). There is a simple procedure to set it right.

Oops, simultaneous brilliance...

I found that removing the lid altogether resulted in too much intake noise for me to bear.

I found it disconcerting at first, but it beat me into submission. Now, I like it.

This is not my thread. In any case, I love my DR650, too. Plus I'm a member at Thumpertalk, too.

Sorry, Klay, I always thought you were the honcho here.

Here's the link: http://www.thumpertalk.com/topic/761...ction-project/

Random

I was sitting in the dentist's office today when I came across this ad in a magazine (car and driver magazine, I believe).

This is an actual ad for an actual shoe. I know this is off-topic and random for this thread but I just had to share!! (Note the logo)...

Actually, there are several guys doing it, but the one above, by a guy who calls himself 'mxrob', is by far the most detailed and informative - all 29 pages of it. Just look around, they're out there.

Like I said, the guy made many mistakes and learned from all of them. His is a really good project, and he is without ego problems or sensitivities. He welcomes ideas patiently and appreciatively, and has an open mind. A good guy, and his bike really seems to work well. Some really smart posters on that thread, too.

He is working with a company called Ecotrons to develop a kit, using his wife's bike as the platform. The progress so far looks good, but there are some differences in the ECU and tuning software that seem to be holding him back. His own bike, having suffered all the experiments and R&D isn't quite as neat-looking, but runs perfect, apparently.

I was impressed, and learned a lot reading it.
Hey, thanks. I'll read up on it.
