Hello Resi, hello Spen,
because of that nice header and it's nice description!
And on me myself as Miss Marlboro is really back together and on the road again. Some misfiring when closing the throttle has been solved by adjusting the throttle stop on the carb (too much shut-off) and Resi's ingenious mixture screw! There's still some fine-tuning to do, but - hey - the bike is running and much quieter than before. This can be addressed to a copper-ring that I put between the connection of silencer and header under the clamp. It always looked like the clamp would close the slots of the connection comepletly and it sounded like it didn't do so. Now it does!
Kind regards, Bambi

The power is amazing. I was going 100km/hr at barely 3,500 RPMs.

Previously on 15 front, 45 back, the bike needs to go up to 4,000 RPMs to match that speed.

Thanks for the feedback. I read a couple of posts saying that we should not have even numbered teeth on the gears otherwise the chain will get worn out unevenly. Does that really happen?

And does anyone have the stock exhaust end cam that they don't want? I am looking for a 2nd hand one.

Aprilia RSV Mille exhaust installation. The interior is rebuilt, only the mantle of the original.! Two pieces of perforated pipe 520 mm long and 48 mm diameter! The sound of hell!

starting problems!!

Hello all,
I am having starting problems on my DR800 (SR43)
It's been running fine until this morning - tried to start, turns over but won't fire!
The AA have just left and the man said it is probably the "ignition module" or the "crankcase sensor".
He checked the right hand spark plug and got no spark, so checked the coil and it was not getting any power so said those were the next 2 items to test but could not locate the ignition module to test and said the crankcase sensor would need to be checked by a garage as it was under the crankcase...
Does this sound correct in your experience?
The plugs are only a couple of months old. The battery is fine. He checked the fuses on the little box marked FUSE behind the battery and checked a few wire connections to see if it was a loose wire/bad connection...
I don't get any result when I search for either of these parts on a search engine and WEMOTO do not list them either...?
It seems very strange....is he making it up??
Any advice greatly appreciated!!
Thanks,
Pete

Hi,

there are two sensors under magneto cover. Ignition power source coil and timimg "trigger" coil.
Both can be measured from the cables/connectors located under tank. On mobile now, so sorry, specs now...

Have a look where the wires should be solderd on the bottom of the ignition switch.

Yesterday I draged Daisy out of the shed and put her through the MOT. She passed, good old girl.

I would seem that more bits than the lever itself are required.

"Some assembly required" also

Simon I spotted that a while back and thought probably the same as another model Suzuki, and also thought that the rubber looked well worn and a normal person would use the button., hence it could be a ring in .
just saying.
