Thumbs up on getting rid of the tiny filter in the carb inlet. I also put me a in line filter in.
the first one that comes up used for a good deal. if you go w/a corbin, be sure it fits your tank; the sargent is supposed to fit any tank. another option would be to get a seat concepts or procycle kit to refurb the stock seat; awailable from procycle.com
If you have the duckets you can send your seat in to procycle and get $75 towards another seat. All they are doing is refabbing your seat when you send it back and reselling it. They will give you a credit towards another for yours.
Have not seen/used one in person but my only concern would be if an otherwise simple slide/impact would bend the mounting tabs and generate a single impact point directly into the side case? Otherwise they look very stout and BMWish.
you still need case armor, at least on the left side; imo - nothing to stop the gear shift lever from hitting the case... my bike is street only; i need to get some case armor...
Someone was complaining about how much disassembly was necessary to remove the oil filter with the TCI set-up. He wasn't very happy.
I put led turn signal lites on my 97 dr 650 now all 4 lites blink fast when I try right or left. got the lites from Virtual village .com I don't want to add resisters. is there a relay kit that works?
This might make sense. I have been running it at 25 psi. guess i could give it a try. Thanks!
Kenda 270 tire.
Looks fully seated all the way around the rim on both sides? Could it still need seating?
No....usually there's a little raised rubber ring on the tire near the wheel. If that ring is evenly spaced from the rim all the way around on both sides the tire is seated correctly. Run your finger all the way around on that ring and make sure it's seated evenly.
If it still looks misshapen there's something else going on with that tire.
Went for a 4 day Fall ride- it's going to snow here soon, so I wanted to get up high before it does. Hope you guys don't mind if I post a Mini Ride Report featuring my DR here.
Hmmm..........seems to be a little DR sized space there to the left. I'll never tell about the somewhat steep rocky road behind the sign, though. My lips are sealed.
Lots of beetle killed trees in Colorado now. Some of them are being harvested but most will just fall down and rot.
Colorado's Fall Colors- Spectacular to ride through.
Quiet lonely tracks.
Down low, nice and sunny...
Up high......the storm's moving in on Ptamigan Pass. Time to move on.
Thx Shu!!! Good to see it out in it's environment.
Superbrightleds.com has a flasher kit. You can replace the flasher module under the seat. Then either pull the dash bulb or install the kit Dennis Kirk sells to make the dash light work. Good luck. There is an abundance of info on this topic in this thread. You just have to search for it.

I'm currently in Des Moines Iowa, a thousand miles from home in Ontario Canada on my way to Tierre Del Feugo wondering how much I'll use the camping gear I'm hauling along. I enjoy camping but the stuff takes up awful lot of room, not to mention the weight. One of the reasons I changed to a DR from a KLR is the lighter weight. Now I find myself loading up on the poundage again.
Accommodation costs in the U.S. are manageable in the short term (kinda) but how much would I really be camping once outside of the States? Safety is a concern since I'm traveling alone. I'm hoping to do some couchsurfing along the way and stay in motels and hostels in the cheaper areas.
For those of you who have already done Central or South America and taken camping gear along would you do it again or forego the camping altogether?
So, do I leave the camp gear at a friends and just enjoy the ride a lot more or what? HELP? Would love to hear other peoples take on my dilemma.
That doesn't sound right. Even 2010 bikes have had philips head screws.
nup. checked my 2010 DR a few weeks back and it had allens... they were nice and tight (as was scottl's 2003 DR we did at the same time, it had the usual phillips heads) but we did the usual slightly longer bolts, loctite, drilled and wired.
Having done that trip as far as the Panama border and now livng in Costa Rica I would leave the camping gear up north.
Cheers Rusty, the simple things ehhh !!!!!!!!!!!!!! i'd never have sorted it.
In case anyone is looking for a change of pace.
The one I checked had 2 loose philips screws...
