Needs a swanky new endcan though
Yep...it sounds too much like a KLR right now.

However, crashbars first along with a new front disc. Then a new air filter.

After that, better sounding from a new end can. I may open up a "can" of worms here, but what do you guys like for end cans and how does the jetting have to be changed to compensate?

I don't want to rattle windows but I would like a deeper more mellow sound to the bike.

Also, what do you guys see for MPG or KPG and how much range with the tanks from full to reserve....and how far will reserve get you before you start pushing??

You dare!!!!!!!!!!

It's probably the one bike I'll be happy with after shedding my DRZ and blackbird (both have to go, and I'm replacing them with something cheapish).

Still more questions

I've been re-reading some past posts and am interested in the airbox/filter mods that "Nave" did back in December last year.

I have'nt seen any posts from him and all his photos have disappeared.

Did anyone copy the airfilter/airbox mod photo? If so can you either post it or send it to me.

Baring that, does anyone know if Nave's photos are still alive somewhere?

Thanks,
Ray

Oh, you did it! You mentioned exhaust in DR Big tread! Worms are flying around now...
I still insist that best possible choice of end can for DR is large large displacement ex-roadbike 2 1/4" or something at least 2 " end can with some labirynth at least - if we talking driving it on public roads as well. It costs peanuts, all that need to be done is to get link pipe or modify stock pipe to fit.

As for Nave's info and airbox... I saved some of his photos....will look it up and mail them to you.
But. Have a look at Marlboro Dakar bike. Look at arrangement of air filters on close-up foto of it. This is just BEAUTIFUL. This is how it should be. Large large surface area of filters, good isolation of the airbox which actually located after airfilters (best setup for motor by any means).
I am really about to go that way as soon as my WP Extreme+ Braking caliper conversion is done. E.g. airfilter must be done and tested before end of May. And second reason is that it will allow to re-shape airbox arrangements in a way to free up space for piggyback shock absorber, choice of those are endless for offroad bikes. Remote reservoir ones of that stroke are scarce.
Also I have something RE: airfilters I can actually offer for sale if anybody interested. I really wanted to put them on bike and got those relatively cheap, but after looking for first time in long time at that Marlboro bike airbox I am convert. I am not goint to use filters I have.
What I have is 2 BMC racing filters for GSXR750. They are double-design, washeable and oiled kind, like K&N. 80 mm between centers of holes, if I remember right something like 55-60 mm holes for intake manifold or directly onto carbs. I do not know how they would've performed, but certainly not worse than stock. They cost a lot new, but I paid 70 Euros with delivery for both of them - almost new. Certainly it is not an option for our colleaguess "across the pond" as sending will be dear, but for Europe/UK is OK.

If anybody wants these - I will sell them for exactly what I paid on German eBay for them as I already started making cardboard templates for Marlboro DR airbox ...

where do you host them? Give me a URL to one picture or page - I will try to post it and if it will work you can too...
To just link picture hosted somewhere else use small icon with mountain in new message menu and enter URL to image there - that's simplest.

yes, you have to host them on some other website. Best thing I can propose you is to use some known free photo hosting site, like Photobucket or Imageshack. You will need to register there.
