I don't remember what i did with the wires for kill switch, if they were wired together or apart but it should be a simple test if you decide to go that route.

On another note, it would appear that it is close to if not the same switch that is on my DRZ. Looks like a pretty standard suzuki kill/start switch.

Hope that helps!
Sounds exactly like my setup too, my start button even says "stop"

Shift Levers

Guys,

I want to replace my shift lever before it breaks, but can't work out if it is a 11 mm spline or 12 mm spline.

If it is an 11 mm spline, am I right in believing that it is the same as the DR650 lever as per:

If it is a 12 mm splice, will either of these two work AOK:

Thanks,

Shane

Hey Berg,

I am sure I will be.. Then I need to start getting it ready for rego! Looks Good though so if it looks as good in real life I'll be happy after regretting letting go of the old DR to Rob (but I do love how it looks now Rob!! )

Cheers Shannon

Last week I was going to outback New South Wales with my mate Denis New South Wales is a state of Australia.
First we headed to a old freinds property at Nyngan, we stopped at Trundle it has been said that you need a cut lunch to cross the road, man is it wide.

After fueling up we headed towards Cobar on the black top, when about 10klm,s out of Cobar Denis,s bike started coughing and spluttering then stopped.
Straight up we wired the kick stand switch wires together as this is usually the cause 99 pecent of the time, ok we are of again, then it starts happening once more 1klm out of town so we took the tank, side covers headlight shroud all of and checked the conections, and allso after this drained the carb.
Put it all back together and the bloody thing kept blowing 30 amp fuses, did the pull apart thing again and it still happened.
OK time for me to get Claud the owner of the local bike shop and pick the bike up after 7hours lost its a long story it was dirty fuel with very fine red dust sticking the needle allmost closed and not getting enough fuel.
We camped at Cobar

Ok the next day we headed straight to Willcania at about 200klm,s out now my bike has the same trouble so I took the bowl of the carb turned on the fuel and played with the floats and plenty of fuel coming through now, I new it was fuel relaited because I turned the fuel to the off possition as soon as it stopped and undid the drain screw on the bowl and bugger all fuel came out.
We then headed back to the bike shop to fit a second hand needle and seat the brass one not alluminium which is what was put into Denis,s bike and his was going ok.
To cut a long story short we drained the tank, took the carb off and blew them clean etc etc, another day lost back to the cabin again tough camping
The next day we decided we would do a rather large loop ride Tilpa , Louth and back to the cabin again .
This is the start of the road to Tilpa.

Some roads were still closed as the red soil gave way to the black soil country ther were some very slippery sections but most of this road was ok.
