Rear Brake Lever

Hey guys - are rear brake pedals all the same? Bent mine up pretty good and plan to put a new one on.

Thanks

that thing isn't too bad.

This was as far as I got by 5pm today. Maybe have it wrapped up tomorrow if I'm ultra super lucky.

I've never seen an aftermarket replacement. I think it's just mild steel so you should be able to bend it back into shape. I've had to do it with my shift lever.

The question has been asked: "How heavy is the DR engine?" You could tell us here AND post it up in Krusty's DR Index (Hiya Krusty, thanks again for the DR650SE INDEX ). Or you could let us down and be forgotten forever.

I will see what I can do!

I just know it should be 1ounce lighter now than it was before

I'm sure you're correct. Removing all that alum from the piston for valve clearance must be good for a multiple of pounds.

noob question, why do you have to remove the motor to put the new high comp piston in? Can't it be done whilst motor is in the bike?? I'm sure there is another reason.

I'm not sure if it can be. Seems like there's a real possibility. Someone will undoubtedly chime in that knows for sure.

But by the time you have it far enough apart to attempt to remove the jug in the frame, it's three more motor mount bolts and a couple other misc garbage to have it on the ground. Literally less than 10 more minutes to have it on the bench.

Too bad my bench is over flowing with other garbage and there was no room for the motor.

Just a tad over 100 pounds.

Yes, the top end can be serviced in the frame. It's not much more work to remove the whole thing but leaving the bottom end in the frame gives you a built in 'engine stand' to hold it firmly when installing the cylinder, rotating the crankshaft, torquing the head bolts, etc.

Funny I am going to be doing some work on mine and that was my thought. I like the engine stand aspect of the frame. I need to do valve seals (maybe guides, but hope not) and rings. But just going to go with a hi-comp piston, may also pull a favor and throw in a cam.
I have an FCR and open airbox, but a stock pipe which i want to stay with and not sure how the cam will work with it, and if it is worth it. I want to look at the stock grind versus the 223 grind and make some decisions. I am most interested if the lobe centers change at all.
