Pfft, yes! When talking to motorcycle experts who have been in the field for >30 years, it is kind of ridiculous to take such a petty concern as this as an issue. Everyone here knows what a choke is. Not everyone knows the difference between the two, but if they would like to learn, that's up to them. Last I checked this was a thread for posting and solving problems with advice from those more experienced in the issues discussed. Not for correcting irrelevant names that everyone here possesses the intelligence to interpret.

Dude, who gives a rat's ass. Choke is easy to say. Everyone here knows what it means.

What do you call the cush drive?
What do you call the triple clamp?

You should be a cop, they love using big words that are not at all necessary.

Nope. Neither. I do claim to be one of the people who find you tiring though. Like, I'm tired of you. I'm claiming that. Officially.

You think it's fine to communicate with another human being in the manner you just have, but think it is reprehensible to explain how things work and to encourage accuracy? These are very interesting standards.

Derek

I think they're both easier to take:

1) with a sense of humor and
2) in small doses. very small. like maybe 1 post.

I looked at my pumper carb tonight. It has a knob on it labeled "CHOKE". Less confusing to refer to it with the Suzuki / Mikuni nomenclature than to try and rename it after the fact! Unless of course you enjoy pissing into the wind too

... and the fast idle lever on my BMW has a choke symbol on it - I know what it is and I don't need somebody tediously explaining the definition to me if I happen to use a common, simple, single-word term for it that EVERYBODY UNDERSTANDS.

Yep, mine says "Choke" too, on both the fuel injected BMW as well as the pumper carb DR350. In fact all of my carbureted bikes say "Choke". So it's a choke afer all.


Cold start enrichment circuit knob my ass.

Hello! Just Joined the Club 94 DR350SE

Hi Everyone--picked this up with 10,000 miles on it and she runs strong.

I am looking to outfit it with some simple n cheap luggage systems---idea's are welcomed and if you have used panniers let me know.

Question: What are the mounting holes for on the rack? a one-side pannier?

cheers.



for some reason my image wont show---

Bang for the buck luggage is Wolfman E12 saddle bags with a dry bag across the back. The Outdoor Products bags at Wal-Mart seem to work surprisingly well. A little more money can add a Wolfman Expedition Duffle for the top bag. I actually run the E12 bags over a tank bag since they're not in the way at all.

This setup is versatile, light, there's no need for racks, and can be put together with a dry bag for under $160. It also transfers from bike to bike with ease.



Here they are on my 950. No pics of them on the DR yet.

Problem is, the stock DR350 exhaust is real close to the side panel and even with some extra shielding work things get really hot (I melted a side panel). I slapped a Jardine exhaust on and, along with a hightech aluminum spacer I'd already installed (crushed aluminum can), all heat problems have been solved. There's only minimal heat in the bag now.

I'm glad it wasn't just me that was finding Derek's pedantry rather tedious!
Well done to Slartidbartfast for initially responding, and so politely too.

After all, there's a fine line between knowing your shit, and knowing you're shit.....social skills also play a part.

Can we move on now, please?

yes. i have a question. i went to activate my cold start enrichment circuit this morning and since the detents are no longer functional, i had to lean over next to the bike and hold it. whilst doing so, the bike fell off the stand therefore causing the clutch lever device to become damaged. am i confined to procuring an OEM lever as my only option due to the clutch start cancel circuit? can anyone suggest a suitable replacement?

thank you for your consideration.

regards,
skelethon
