Good choice EdWife . I think the '88 paintjob is the best, closely followed by the '90.

Also swapped screens. Super easy (BMW take note!). I'm going to see how turbulent and/or prone to crosswinds the stocker is.

When I work on the bike and need both wheels off the ground I Lean it over on the side stand and place a steel legged stool under the frame and build up with wood. Lean it one way and then the other way and knock the wood through

Much more than just ok.

I must say I have a weakness for black bikes. Your bike is looking stunning and the stickers look really nice on the black background.

Just won and auction for Tank Crashbars I have been looking for a month now.

The closing bid was 40 Euros, these are brand new and at hessler's shop you can get them for 140.

I was quite lucky with that one.

Anyway, we were chatting to Chaz's dad and he told us of the time he stuck his foot out whilst supermotoing on the tarmac section of his track. He was wearing road boots.
He said he felt a twinge and when he looked down at his foot he thought something was amiss. His foot was twisted around and was pointing a little to the rear.
The road boot had gripped a little too much and he had broken both the bones in his lower leg.
My lad swopped his road boots for a pair of of Tech8's they had.

Dirt boots slide better on tarmac apparently.

Just a thought..............
Id say Chaz and Rosi are in a different League, but it just Goes to show if your not used to something and its not second nature to you one can come unstuck, I personally will have to go to The California super bike school for some one to train me to use my Knee if I ever want to Ride a Sports Bike on the race track,
The only Time my foot ever touches the Ground is when I'm off road and the terrain is undulating or if the bike suddenly slips out and you save it with your foot, then I can get a heavy bang through my ankle so one learns to keep you foot high to avoid this and I also dab my foot on the ground at times in slow corners to get a sense of distance as some times the to the side flat track dragging style works in low traction situatios like metal or wet roads but then you surface grip is low ,

Also pointing you toe forward helps to stop you foot being dragged sideways I think it one of those feel things My boots never touched the ground once at the Track day and I have no scratches on them

Though I use my Touring boots on Road Track, Dirt boots are very stiff and you whole leg would be more likely to turn in such a situation

Owww through if ones foot was to grab it doesn't bear thinking about

Ray, your bike looks Beauty, sticker look great to , nice

Ladder, we NZ ders are a majority here, careful what you say, we love Black

Thumb DR 750 won't start

I bought a 1988 dr750 that wasn't running. It was in a mates motorcycle auto electric workshop and he had checked the timing, spot on, the valve clearances, spot on, compession, plenty, and he noticed the number 1 idler gear that runs off the starter motor had a tooth missing. The starter motor spline was also a bit ratty but he reckoned the main problem was the starter clutch. So I've put in a new starter clutch ($370), a new idler gear ($80), both ex japan, a good second hand starter motor, ($100), ex Germany via ebay. Once I removed the starter clutch it seemed to be ok but I put the new one in anyway. The original idler gear has 17 and 35 teeth, the new one from suzuki, same part number, now has 17 and 34. One would imagine the reason behind this change would be to turn the motor over a bit faster. The problem is the old girl hasn't been started in a while and she won't start now. I'd appreciate any ideas. Just one other thing. The decal on the sides of the tank are the head of a teddy bear with the words 'Factory Bear' underneath. I don't know if that's original or after market. The side decals are the 750 slingshot ones.
Cheers,
ausibatla.

Ausibatla does the motor turn over if it does try new fuel after draining carbs.

I thought that might wake somebody up

I guess I'm a completly abnormal Yank. I have a DR750 and I love Rugby. I'd rather watch a match than an American Football game.

Ausibatla,

You might check the electrical switch on the decompressor lever. I believe that electrical contact has to be made there before anything starts. If the bikes been sitting a long while electrical connectors may be dirty.
