Tried Dynojet kit and airbox mod - better throttle response but still surged no matter what I tried. Got the TM40 and it is awesome, so smooth. I can lug around in 5th at 30mph and roll on throttle...

That sucks!

I also live in West Asheville and will keep an eye out for it.

I will tell you that sorting the suspension on the DR650 makes it a much more capable bike in the rough. It is by far the best mod I have done to my bike. I had Cogent Dynamics rebuild my rear shock...
