HA!This is right down my alley. I've been restoring and fooling around with old 2 strokes for ten years or so now. I think my wife has kinda given up.

And thanks much for the tips and links. Exactly what I'm looking for.

I need to know what to do with the other tank hose when installing the IMS tank, I removed the hose that went on back of stock petcock and plugged its carburator inlet. Connected the main carburator hose to he petcock. What do I do with the other hose that went to the bottom right side of the stock tank??

I know this asnwer must be somewhere along this 2,000+ thread pages, just cant find it

Is it a California model with a hose tank vent to a charcoal cannister maybe.

I would really appreciate a bit of a run down from those who have experienced at least two on which are better for various applications.
I have the Corbin and it works for me on the DR. No idea why because I've had two Corbin seats on other bikes and they were just OK. A friend had a Corbin on his Vstrom, it was great, truly better than stock. So hit and miss but for most you will hear from here, the Corbin hits a Homerun.

I guess my Corbin suits me as I've done multiple 400 mile days, back to back. 10 hour riding days not a problem, I've done dozens in 30K miles. Yes, its heavy. Yes, customer service is not great. But it just flat works on this particular bike.

Renazco Racing
James is a Hero in the KTM community. He makes a beautiful seat and cheaper than the Corbin. Also cooler looking with suede and cool piping. I've not ridden on one on a DR650 but have on a 950 ADV. But only spent an hour and an half in the saddle. Seemed fine. Sorry, no idea how well it would do after four or five hours, which is the real test for a good seat. The bikes owner claims 10 hour days doable, in fact the day we rode together we rode about 10 hours (350 miles)

Problem is, the KTM guys are used to a stock seat that would make the stock DR650 seat feel plush So for most KTM guys, riding for two or three hours is unheard of and they are in heaven with their Renazco. Far as I know, no one has done a "Shoot-out" between the two. Keep in mind Renazco has about a three or four month wait. I think the Corbin is on the shelf, ready to ship. I have a leather one, its good. If I was on the fence and had time, I'd go Renazco just to try one out, I'm sure it's a good product .... and if not he will fix any complaints quickly without hassle.

No idea about Sargent, but fact is, almost anything is an improvement over stock. But I will tell you, the ability to cover huge miles in comfort will really change your whole outlook on the bike in general. I never, ever would have imagined it would be possible to cover so many miles for so many days in a row and survive.

Go to a couple rallies or dual sport rides and get in a few test rides.

The reason I got the LED flickers was not for power saving but rather to match what I did to the DR.

Where does the hose go to ?
I only have the vacuum hose off the carb (well before fitting the Mikuni TM40) and the fuel hose,no other hoses or fittings on the fuel tank itself.

Someone US based will know better than me but most California bikes do not have a vented gas cap but a hose from an internal tube running to an external charcoal filter.
May not be the case here but if the hose system is removed/tube/blocked off a vented cap or a mod to suit would need to be fitted so the tank could vent and eliminate vacuum lock.

Anyone do anything to insulate the oil line from the header pipe? I just put the FMF pipe on and while there certainly is clearance I thought some insulation material on the hose wouldn't hurt??

Are you sure these are the ones you bought? The ad doesn't indicate they are LED.

Similar to what I've been thinking. Only, I've been daydreaming about putting the DR650 motor into my KTM250 frame.

Is it a skid plate or bodywork?

I looked all over the net for a cheap skid plate that had specific features including protecting the lower oil line up front on the engine, fit flush with no fasteners sticking out in harm's way, protect the lower sides of the motor & it should go all the way back and pick up the two threaded brackets on the bottom of the frame. (my design would not be symmetrical & I recessed the rear allen bolts by welding material to the inside and counter boring .250)
I looked around my shop and figured I had everything I needed to make one. Starting with 6061 T6 aluminum and some cardboard templates I festooned this piece.



As it began to take shape I thought I would just go ahead and make it look like a piece of bodywork and mix some colors together and spray it. Before hanging it on, I used some high heat silicone and coated the inside to help deaden the noise it was going to make.
Trips to Home Depot : 0
Total cost : 0
Red Bull consumed : many
Tools required : priceless
