When I rode back from the TF, all was fine, Friday I went to load it for a jaunt in ONF with Ocala Mike. The thing would turn over but not start. Finally got it cranked, but under hard acceleration it quits. I'll fix it, just not in the mood to do it now, with guns in the forest and all. Done all the simple things, fuel filter, etc. Thanks for asking Josh.
On second thought, maybe I'll keep it a while Milk, might get a boat. It'll make a good anchor
Took the GSA out for a little trip around Lake O. Real nice ride, Temps were great until late afternoon. Only negative was that it was all slab.
Your DR650 is a great light adventure bike. But your soon to be new to you street legal KTM anything will make dirt riding sooo mucho moro funo.
Oil 2 twin air filters for the 350.
^^^ Great points, but it doesnt have to be orange, my Yamaha YZ450F is a great bike for ONF, the only thing to be improved on would be the nut connecting the handlebars with the seat.
I tried to figure out Polar Bear thread. Gave up and freshened tire pressure on all da scoots
"Finding the 2018 Polar Bear thread"
It's an adventure.
(Or the OP could have easily named them all Polar Bear 1, 2, 3, and so on but the shenanigans that ensued were entertaining).
shenanigans? had to be done
Got the carb off the DR to fix float problems, as my crankcase was filled with about a gallon of gas. Wondered aloud how in the world an engineer could take a simple needle and seat assembly and come up with this concoction.
2 words: mass production. Now essentially one part to install, not 3. Saves all of maybe 90-120 seconds per build, which is a lot for the Japs.
Back in my day them there floats were brass and hand soldered together, then held in the carb by a tapered brass pin .
A lot of them still are. But the plastic floats became a "thing" in late 70s-early 80s. At least with a brass float, if you pinch a hole in it, you can solder it and still ride on.
Took a while to figure out how the assembly comes apart to renew the needle. Thought about buying the whole assembly but the $70.00 price ended those thoughts.
Finished the new graphics on my KTM, changed the oil and greased the stem bearings.

Some Chucklehead told me them thar FCR39 carbs were mo'better than the stock CV carb on a DRZ, so I done found me one.
It took a half dozen Sazeracs but I got her all fitted up last night. She done fired up with just a bump of the loud button and the choker on.
Appreciate ya @TipsyMcStagger
YJake, 2 things are guaranteed to happen now: yer DRZ’s gas mileage is gonna go down, and yer front wheel is gonna go up.
