Yea... Literally just broke off. It was the strangest thing, I wasn't even touching it, it just fell. I think the previous owner might have glued it. It seems to have some residue on it.

So my bike is an hour away and I am trying to buy some clear hose on amazon that will fit on the bleeder valve but I don't know what diameter hose will fit on the caliper... Does no one know or can measure?

Clutch basket nut

So I stupidly thought I could do the NSU screws without mishap, but of course I was wrong. I am in the process of putting things back together, and realize that I don't know how tight the bolt that holds the basket on should be. Should there be any freeplay when pushing the basket back and forth on the shaft? If so how much? Thanks.

Long before I get to 36# the plate holder will no longer free wheel. Maybe I am doing something else wrong.

Sorry to have bothered everyone. I went to the parts diagram, then went to the shop, and found the missing washer, now it works fine. The bike is a 2008 with 6000 miles and the NSU screws came loose with only very minimal pressure. Thanks again.

Broken Header Pipe - Only 6K miles

'09 DR650 just turned 6K miles today and about 20 miles from home exhaust got a little bit louder. About 10 miles got a whole lot louder. Figured it was a crack somewhere on the head pipe as that where the sound was coming from.

Thought about stopping and worried a little about doing engine damage but had no other way to get home so babied it the last 10 miles.

WTF! The head pipe is broken clean off at the flange where it bolts up and there is about 1/2" gap 360 degrees, actually looks like someone cut it off with a rough blade hacksaw.

Is this a common occurence?

Only motor mods are opened up breather box with DT-1 air filter, Pro-Cycle jet kit, and GSXR1000 muffler with Kientech mid-pipe on OEM header.

Anyone have a spare oem header or is there a better option.

Sounds to me like someone got over zealous grinding the internal header weld. You can go too far!

You might could check with a sign shop for a piece of white vinyl for a few pennies. That's what I did for added colour to my helmet. Counter person says "I don't know what to charge for a 6" square piece of scrap, just buy something here next time you need a sign."

Know nothing about machining. Are those welds "cleaned up" by hand or is it all mechanized?

Finished installing my hayabusa muffler today and went out for a test ride. At 60 I pegged the throttle and the bike bogged down. I assume I need to go one higher on my Main jet? I have a tm-40 from procycle and it came with a bunch of jets. My air box is cut. I went from cut air box and stock muffler to cut box and hayabusa muffler.

When I did mine I used a die grinder with a with a carbide cone bit. If you take too much out it will leave the weld weak enough to vibrate crack. Once that starts it will break all the way around eventually. I ended up putting FMF Power bomb head pipe and Two Brothers mid pipe from Jesse at Kientech with my GSXR Can. Works great and the power bomb header has clearance at the frame down tube where the regular FMF oversize header does not. Good set up, very happy with the results.

You can grind the stock pipes' weld for somewhat more flow- which I did at first- but I really don't think it is worth the trouble for what you gain and the run the risk of going too far. I would never do it again in retrospect.
