"The spacer typically has a drain hole in it, so that if the layer nearest the fuel gets a hole in it, the fuel will exit there"

Thanks for the note Motolab, it is currenlty leaking a little bit through the hole in the spacer located on the bottom side of the petcock. The Raptor valve will eliminate this issue.

I have flooded my engine more times with aftermarket petcock then I ever did with the stock vacuum one. In fact I never flooded my engine with a stock petcock

Finally got my license plate in.
It is a sign of defiance since the New Mexico DMV said I could never make a DR350 street legal.

LED bulb

If you are looking to free up power an LED tail light bulb is nice. Don't sweat the trun signals as they are on so intermittenly and you will mess with the blinker relay (need to add additonal resistance). The dash has an outragous number of watt draining bulbs as well. swap those out for LED and you should free up quite a few watts. HID head light can gree up another 20.[/QUOTE]

Have you found one you like that works well? I have seen mixed reviews on them.

Thanks

I had my stator rewound by a local company and I was satisfied with the result. Also it cost less than a replacement. Look for a business in your area that does this type of work.

Which one?
LED Tail
LED Dash light bulbs or
HID Kit.

The answer really is no, but...

My riding buddy has an LED tail lights. Just what ever stock repelcements the local moto shop sells. Can barely tell the differecne from incandesent.

I have found the dash lights on web sites like this. http://www.superbrightleds.com/ But since I don't have a stock instrument cluster anymore i stopped looking.

THis is the link that got me interseted in HID systems:
http://www.procycle.us/info/articles...ess-power.html
Go back to the DR650 product page and you can find their HID for sale.

However I beleive it is jsut a rebranded version of this for a fraction of the cost.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/H4-H4-3-HB2-...981373&vxp=mtr

The Hi/low system I have heard is a bit funcky. Doesn't use a two filimetn bulb but instead move the bulb back and forth via a servo motor. The positons the bulb in the refelctor tranlates the light higher and lower. But the e-bay kits was not wired properly. Seems like it was jsut half of a dual light car kit. So there was some monkeying around. Things might have gotten better recently. I was jsut going to go with a non servo single postion light and lose the hi/low function. Maybe things got better over the last year.

I will be back into this this winter, as it is when I moneky with my bike,

There are a few HID thread roaming around ADV. I'd look into those for more info.

Custom Rewind in Birmingham? They did a couple stators for my Triumph Tiger (one for the bike and a spare for traveling) a few years ago. Great work and customer service.

Seriously? Wow, I grew up there, and things used to be VERY different. Case in point: I had an RGV250 (Suzuki 2-stroke GP bike). We slapped lights, signals, etc on it, took it down, got it plated. Same day. I also got my RM-80 plated the same way. Of course, this was in the late 80s/early 90s.

I see you're in Las Cruces. I went to NMSU. GO AGGIES!

Hey guys,

Got a question to make sure I'm on the right track. My buddy just bought a 1995 DR just like mine and it has ran flawlessly for over a month. The other day he rode it home and went to start it about an hour later and nothing. It will just chug and chug but not start. Since it chugs I knew it wasn't the sidestand switch, clutch switch, etc. I traded out petcocks to a Raptor 660 one just to make sure fuel wasn't the problem and it's getting fuel for sure.

I believe I have traced the problem to an intermittent spark issue. With the plug removed and grounded I'll get like 3 sparks when pressing the e-start button and then nothing. Sometimes it will spark for 10 seconds and other times no spark at all. This took a while to determine because the first few tests I was getting spark and was really confused. The shop manual says that for poor or no spark it should be the plug, coil, CDI, or magneto.

So now I have him getting a new resister cover(spark plug boot) and ignition coil (comes with attached spark plug wire) because that's the cheapest fixes to start off with. I am not very good with a multimeter tester and in general hate electric problems so I wanted opinions to make sure I'm on the right track.

Thanks. (oh ya, I am using a new plug and have tried 2 different ones to rule out a faulty one, compression is good, and I have looked over the whole bike for cracked or frayed wires)
