haha! There isn't a square angle on it anywhere. Wobbly as hell but it probably could hold the 600lb Tiger.

I just noticed today that my right side fork reflector has been scraping my acerbis tank when full-right. I don't know if this is the case for anyone else but I just wanted to let y'all know to check before you damage it at all. I had a pretty good gouge out of it and I've only had it for a few months.

You'd normally put the close coils on the unsprung end (the close coils otherwise add sprung weight).

The caps on early damper rod forks have a large screw (~1 cm diameter) to adjust pre-load, the later cartridge forks have a small (~6 mm) recessed screw for adjusting rebound. Lots of other differences including different brakes and a larger diameter axle. Check the pic below:

that helps to explain the shavings on the screen, the rattle in the motor and the jumping out of gear. Hopefully the damage is minimal.

Good to know. Bought an Acerbis recently. Just finished new seals and adjustments. Ive been on my beemer and dr650 so much I forgot how fun this bike is! Gonna drop it for my big boy brother and my lady to ride it.

Now the question is where the hell did that come from?

It's the dreaded shift drum bolt. Apparently quite notorious for loosening up, falling out and creating varying amounts of engine carnage.

This screw was loose and ready to fall out on both of the DR's I bought.

I know how you feel... my right handguard had a bolt that would rub the tank at full lock. I never noticed it till I saw a huge gouge in the top of my tank about a month after I got it.

Shift Drum Bolt

So...this shift drum bolt...how many miles yinz got on your machines? or..when should a guy expect failure? i got 7k on mine..I dont have much trouble finding nuetral.. If bike is coasting i have no issues at all..if bike is sitting still running, SOMETIMES it takes that special touch.

Time to disect it?

Funny - mine rubbed on the left....I did a bunch of twisting and filing and now have about 1mm of clearance at full lock.

Guess it depends on which side you fall down the most!

I'm interested in this as well....I normally am the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" school but it seems the bolt loosening/falling out can be pretty unnoticeable until it completely fails....

I know my 99 with 20k mikes on it and the drum bolt is still tight. There is no reason for anyone not to check this. $12 for a clutch cover gasket and maybe 30 minutes of work and you have either fix it or have piece of mind.

Lay the bike on its side 10 bolts and it's right there. If you get the bike laying flat you won't even need to Mess with the oil.
