I'm 99.9 percent sure it will fit. From 1996 till 1999 the kickstart was an option on the DR250R and Djebel 250XC here in Japan, then it became standard from 2000 because the battery got a reputation for dying quickly when the bike was not ridden for any extended period.

There is definately a plug in the right side crank case. It even has 'Kickstart' embosed in the cover. I have had that side off before and it seemed to have all the provisions and space for kick start gear.

I found online an exploded view of the kicker mechanism/parts for an 06 Drz so sourcing parts shouldn't be hard.

There was an optional Kickstarter kit in Japan for the Djebel250XC part# 26300-13811

Don't suppose you also have the itemised list that coincides with the item numbers?

Converting from BSR32 to TM28?

I'm switching from the BSR32 carb to the TM28. Ordered the intake boot, just wondering if I need to change the throttle cable as well. Anyone know?

Speaking of throttle cables, mine is pretty sticky.

I noticed this only because I rode a friends KTM and then rode another friends Kawi and then I got back on my bike and I was like damn my throttle is so tight.

I want to put bar risers on the bike. Anyone have suggestions for lengthening the cables or getting longer ones?

The 1" risers I bought on Ebay were advertised as working with the stock cables, and they did. Are you sure you need new cables? Try spraying some oil down the cable sheaths, might get rid of the sticking.

I was thinking about going up about 3" with my bars. I am a pretty tall dude at 6'2

About 1.75 or so with risers, and another inch or thereabouts with taller bars

you most always find extra slack in wiring, reroute or even unbolt 1 upper tripple clamp at a time, pull down the upper tube from bellow and pass the cable behind the tube for more legnth.

Couple of pics from a ride out in the brindabellas not far from my place.




A couple of photos in the Australian forum in the ACT thread from another ride too.

I gave the bike a hose down after that ride and rode 15ks to work! Love this little bike!

What are you guys getting for fuel economy? Admittedly I'm usually WFO on the highway and always accelerating aggressively on back roads to the dirt, but was still stunned to find yesterday I only averaged 45.5 mpg/19.35 kpl. I get much better fuel economy on my Dakar.

Im 6'2", 235 (and dropping) and I get about 52mpg. I thought I was going to get somewhere in the ballpark of 65-70.


Also admittedly, I am WFO almost all the time, running the gears their length, and always downshifting to slow, doing stupid stuff, etc.

What you're getting is about what I was expecting based on caning the crap out of my previous 250 DPs.

I think my bike's running too rich. When I start it in the garage the smell of gas in the exhaust is pretty strong. Don't know if the jets are stock, should have a look. Also am wondering if closing the pilot screw a bit would help.

Something I noticed was increasing the idle actualy slightly improved the economy. If it was too low off the bottom, the pumper wouldnt do its job effectively and I found myself twisting to Wide Open sooner than with the idle set slightly higher. It means slightly more clutch work in the really technical stuff, but I feel it is an awesome compromise for rideability.
