Nope. I even tried using the push/pull on the throttle and it wont idle down. Blip works every time... WTF?

Going to pull the carb off and give it a good cleaning. Any suggestions on a probable cause?

I swear I will sell the f*!@er if I have to blip the throttle all the time
I forgot ... are you running the stock BST40 Carb? If so ... PM Derek.
My old Carb did the same ... slide/Jet needle was worn out (apparently).
I just bought a whole new Carb. This might be it, not certain, but when the slide and Jet needle begin to wear you can get off idle stumble and stalling going down to idle. YMMV.

Just a thought.

Stock-ish BST40

Forgot about the whole needle wear. I do have an aftermarket needle (PC kit); I will have to check the tube it runs in. I think Derek has mentioned not liking aftermarket needles due to wearing that tube.

Thanks

I have done most of that, what I have left is the suspension and motor rebuild. I am debating if it is worth it.

The bike was transformed, steered better, more stable, better handling. The motor and mechanicals never had any problems. AFAIK, his bike is still on the road and doing fine.

yea, its that stinkin' tube. My needle looked OK but the slide and tube showed a bit of wear. Does not take much to affect smooth running.
Could also be a bit of water in float bowl. Drain it for luck. Maybe a dose of Sea Foam or Techron? Also, re-check fuel/air screw setting (mine vibrated OUT) and reset idle speed.

Good luck!

This UK Ebay Shop is breaking a '98 DR for parts and flogging them, might be useful for any of you guys.
Breaking DR650 for Spares

Thought it might be of use

I'm about to check the NSU screws on my '09 DR650SE with 2,412 miles on it, I want to replace the phillips head screws with either allen head or hex head bolts and then drill and lock wire them. I found a post that claimed the OEM screws were 5mm x 15mm long with standard metric threads (looks like .8mm pitch or 12.5 threads/cm), does anyone know the specs on the O.E.M. NSU screws for sure? Also read a post that claimed the later model DR's now come with allen head screws already installed, anyone else found this to be the case?

Thanks,

Jeff

Sorry Jeff, can't help with bolt size. And yes, I too have read several reports here on this thread on newish DR's stating current NSU bolts are Allen head ... and that they in there fairly tight. Suzuki don't torque them down because the NSU unit is PLASTIC. Loc Tite is your friend. Safety wire it if you like ... but I'm confident Loc Tite is adequate, IMHO.

Oil level

Hi,

I checked my oil level today. I warmed the bike up for a few minutes, shut the engine off then checked through the sight glass. With the bike vertical, the level was hovering about 2 mm above the lower mark in the sight glass.

Could this have caused any engine damage? I changed the oil 1000 miles ago with 2 quarts of oil and a new filter.

Also, the bike has a small leak opposite the side of the cam bore plug - near the spark plugs. This is probably where some of the oil went. I am going to fix this soon.

Thanks.

As long as the oil is above the minimum you are completely safe. That's what the minimum line is there for.

Mojave Shock

Has anybody tried the new Mojave Shock from Procycle..........probably not as they've only just started selling them.

I spoke to their staff and I'm slightly confused about what the Mojave Shock offers. Staff member said it only has damping control but no compression but has Cogent's new internals (shaft etc all new). Where as the exchanged one (if I sent my stock shock to cogent) has damping and compression. To tell you the truth, I don't understand the two and maybe confusing myself.

Anyway, I'm sure the Mojave has to be an improvement over stock.
