Carb guru's? Advice? Spoke to the okes at loxons suzuki and they are trying to source a DJ kit for me... until then....

Let me know how the dj works! I'd take my plug spanner along and pull one plug after a full on run and cut-out. That'll tell you whether you need to drop the needle.

Looks like all systems are a go gentleman. I will be throwing myself at the mercy of the road. Got everything but some tire irons which I will pick up tomorrow. That winshield looks great but I ain't got the dough or time. I will look into it when I get back to the dirty south. josh my man,, I will surely be give you a call as Memphis would be a great resting place. I will be using my sleeping bag as an ass pad. Mounted everything on the bike to see how it would look. Looked extremely ghetto, but functional thanks to racheting tie downs. again thanks for all the precious feedback. Will take plenty of picks. Wish me luck gentleman. I am really doing this!!!

2WG, Good Luck, have a safe trip.

And with any luck at all, you will look back on this as one of your great rides.

You will be telling the story about the time you rode your DR650 across the country.

Fuel shutoff

Web - there's a small ball valve in that system (for CA) that is not supposed to allow fuel to pass into the canister. It hangs up sometimes and then wet charcoal backs up into it.

Son-in-law had the same problem. Rip that stuff outta there.

Did the above and drilled the slide.. WOW! Different bike Still feels a bit hesitant when winding her up in the higher revs but..

Also did headlight switch (waterproof switch in headlight cowl) a weather resistant 12v socket, uhf holder (for when I am hunting) and chucked on an inline fuel filter.




Just wanna add a big thanks to all the guys n girls on here for their valuable input.. and all the others that have no valuable info whatsoever but are good entertainment

I will do my best, if I can pull this off I'll need pictures or no one I know will believe me.

I don't have a windscreen, and I didn't even think of that as a factor, but great point....errrr, now how many miles a day can I expect before I've been blown to pieces. I'd love to see posts of the communities longer day rides so I had an idea.

55 bhp DR found in outback Australia (well freo)

The fastest in the west lads (well West Aussie) and the Dyno speaks for itself.

55 bhp

Read the dyno graph looks like he's running a 725 kit with a cam and the TM-40 carb.
