Ebay racks!
Valmis: Heres a pic of both. The ebay side racks are from a seller called Losi3030. Just search dr650 racks ($95). I have no connection to this seller.

Yep, before I left work to fill it up, I leaned it all the way over to the left in the parking lot. That got me just to the top of the reserve tube on the petcock. The right side of the tank was mostly empty.

I also rotated my carb inlet straight down and added an inline filter, so hopefully that increased the reserve range too.

Your install got me curious so I googled and found a thread on a harley forum about these and it's amazing what one of the guys who rides a dual sport is saying. This stuff had some consecutive rally car wins in the dakar, and the inventor owns an XR650L and a DR650, i'm definately interested. Check out how the chasis hardly moves in the vid below from the same guys who developed these things ... or maybe it's just hype

Perfect - that is exactly what I needed to know - and the picture helps too.

Thanks!

sale price is $310.
man this guy is a business machine.
charge more on your sale price.
i'm sure they're flying off the shelf even faster.

As far as the $298.94 price tag, click on the update price tab on the site for a surprise!

you can use the bbq rack & dirtbags at the same time.

What are my options/limitations if I want to install the BBQ rack AND some sort of rack on the side to keep softbags off my tires and exhaust?

Can I do both? Recommendation?

Thanks!

But the low speed damping is controlled by the oil viscosity as opposed to part of the shim stack.

Also with those expensive ones you can return the forks to stock.

I'm going to get some RaceTech Emulators myself.

?
besides harley, he's got them for klr (cheapest fuckers going) & sv650 (a cheap & fun street bike). he's going after some of the most value oriented motorcycle buyers and expecting top $???

i have nothing against his invention. would just like to see some more solid engineering detail as to justify the price.

guess yuppie harley guys just open their wallets and take your word for it & hardcore harley guy tell you fuck off and spend that $ on beer.

maybe some backdoor valued pricing for adv riders might spur some interest.
sale prices more expensive the regular price do not.
does he want to sit there a wank off about his wonderfull invention or move a bunch of em to dr owners?

As far as the cost, I know that Ricor is admittedly going after the markets were the customers are willing to pay for the product. The only reason they have a DR650 version is because of the owners appreciation of the DR650's engineering. In his opinion (and yes, I spoke with him) an upgraded DR650 is the best of the best adventure bike, period, if you are going to ride off road. Power (modified) to weight with a counter balancer, rear crush hub, reliable air/oil cooled, 'big' seat, reliable. I don't get the over 450lb 'adventure bikes' at all if the trip includes enjoying off road. If you ride a conventional (non damper rod) front fork bike, you will find the set up you have works better than upgrading to a high end conventional set up.

you a bend over and open your wallet kinda guy?

i spent $ of springs & emulators because i know it works.
this product, at this point, is kinda fuzzy.

Mine seems to be a 5.2 as well.

So very stiff low speed damping and supple high speed?

v. Emulators?

It could be that the product is everything it claims, but I'd prefer to have a full-test done by a reputable publication, with actual performance measurements. Basically the Gold Valves Emulators appear to be the same technology. Their "shim" is so thin it both deflects and moves the spring, so I'm not sure of the difference between the Emulator's technology and a "modern deflected disk." Beyond that, I'm very wary of "anti-dive" technology. Way back in the early to mid-1980s all the major manufacturers got into "anti-dive forks" that restrained dive under braking. A bunch of lawsuits later they all got out of it. Unless you're real careful, they end up being disasterous if you have to brake on a bumpy downhill. The damping restriction can turn the front end into a pogo stick on bumps if you're simultaneously braking.

Rooster Crow

Mine definitely crows on cold starts; it doesn't bother me as long as you all tell me it's nothing to worry about. I saw this on the Yahoo Group and wondered if it's something us crowers should do:

Re: [DR650] Bearing squeal when starting
remove end cap off starter ( dont take off complete starter ) fill up bronze bush with oil and let it sit overnight to soak in , tip oil out next day , wipe with rag , put a little amount of good quality greese on bush and reassemble. I also drilled a little hole thru from out side caseing so can give it a squart of crc if needed Cheers Toddy

What do you think?

Sarah
p.s. Posted on TT too

Cee Baileys

A search came up empty, but I thought I'd ask to make sure. Has anybody tried the Baja Designs shield?

http://www.ceebaileys.com/baja_design/index.html

I called CB and they guy on the phone said he'd never heard of one on a DR650. Thanks
