As Bergdonk mentions, keeping a good front sprocket makes a big difference to chain life.
I too change them out around the 6K mark.

Before I bought one of these, I used car axle stands and a bit of round steel.

Definitely balance with rim locks or do away with them. As Nordie says it'll drive you bonkers before long and it'll put a toll on your shockie and linkage bearings

Thanks, just ordered one. Looks good

DR 650 Jetting

Hi New to the forum and DR 650's. Hoping to pick the brains of the experience on here.

Have been reading about lean jetting being STD on these bikes, mainly by people in the USA.

My question is STD jetting to lean from new on 2012 Aussie DR650 ?, I have GSXR muffler/kientech mid pipe, standard header, standard airbox not cut with snorkel intact.( Due to induction noise and economy don't intend to change airbox or Carby)

Bike feels fine to me and runs well(only done 1,800 km) but I am concerned if it is running lean about possibly burning out valve sometime down the track.

Cheers

see the first post of the BST magic thread. it suggests lean off idle but not bad elsewhere. the OP did my DR with the mods in that thread and definitely transforms the bike. you'll get similar results with an aftermarket jetting kit too. economy should be similar if ridden economically (i still get 20-22km/l on easy adventure rides) but will obviously use more when ridden hard.

Thanks B1, Will have a read through all that. As mentioned don't think it is running bad at all just concerned if it is lean what that may do long term.

Cheers

If there is no surging, and no flat spots when accelerating, it should be fine.

If you lift the needle a notch, or two to be sure, as a test, you'll get an indication of how it runs when its a bit richer from 1/8 to 2/3 throttle FWIW.

Lifting the needle is done by removing the carb top and pulling the slide out, pretty easy if the Phillips head screws cooperate. Best to replace these, and the float bowel, with Allens for the future.

Thanks Bergdonk, will move clip one notch as test to see if runs any different, thanks for the advice

Hand Guards

In the process of setting up my new DR 650 and looking for any advice on best fitting handguards, the ones from Highway Dirt Bikes in USA appear to be good quality anyone have them?

I guess the local choice is Barkbuster VPS or Acerbis Multiplo, looking for best fit with cables etc and clearance of switchgear. Main use will be for keeping cold off hands not doing any bashing through overgrown or rugged single track.

Cheers

I bought the moose ones from procycle. They have the big plastic deflectors for good wind protection and bar end spacers to give clearance to the levers.

Designed for those poor office souls who'd rather be riding

Well it's Friday here in Australia.
I made a song while riding my bike.
Whilst on my DR650 of course.
My song is called "Staying behind the truck, not going to get F^cked."
Primarily designed for those in offices, trying to pass time. Please share if you know someone bored to-the-craphouse in an office environment, poor bastards.

Song is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRoyXtdfd5M

keep an eye out behind when behind the truck, you never know what dangers might lurk behind you....

Pretty sure that junior Flodder should be able to get one for around $7500 ride away.
