Sounds like the tank vent got occluded for one reason or another.

While fuel may be the issue, I wouldn't dismiss the switches too quickly. If the sidestand is bouncing while you're moving, it could cut out, close again....basically a mini bump start...repeat. You were there and know what it felt like, just suggesting a look at it as B1 mentioned. Can't hurt.

Freebies

Just posted these in the Flea Market and since they are DR parts then it's a no brainer posting here.... (i think )

1) Parts are shipping from Sydney Australia...

2) The parts are FREE but you pay for postage (paypal or somethin')...

3) OK.. the parts aren't totally free. There is a $5 handling fee... jk...

4) Nah seriously you just pay the shipping costs...



Parts..... (all from an '08 DR)

---Black plastic hanguards - Condition: Pretty good condition, normal wear and tear.

---OEM 7/8 inch bar mounts w/ bolts, nuts, washers - Condition: Barely any scratches.

---OEM 7/8 inch handlebars - Condition: Straight as... Normal wear and tear (a little scuffed). Probably surface rust on the inside.

I think it's a good mod which will be worth doing but not the cause of this problem.
1) was traveling on good sealed highway
2) didn't have a single issue while off road earlier that day
3) prob most evident that it wasn't this, the bike wouldn't start straight away, it needed to sit there for a few min.

You have removed that little inline fuel filter at the carb inlet, haven't you? It's in that elbow where the fuel line meets the carb.

This has really increased my interest with the DR650. I will be coming back for more to learn about more tips and updates about it.

I'm sure that this old news to most, but I am absolutely blown away with how much more responsive this bike is, the exhaust mod made a HUGE difference in weight alone. My 919 isn't getting much love these days.
What an odd couple a DR650 and a 919. I have the same bikes.

Pretty well the same setup as mine except I have custom (self) made midpipe. People don't believe it, but the Gixxer pipe with the DJ and airbox mod tranforms the bike and yet it can still be ridden quietly if wanted.

By the way, I couldn't help myself but some of you guys have great imaginations with your ADV names. I mean, dogjaw, Goodcat8... Do you guys know each other ?

Add me to the list of DR650/919 owners. We're not that odd!

Just a wild guess... Fuel tank venting issue?

Anyone know for sure?

At the top, you can see the small gap in the spring where the two ends hook together.

The part on the left I have never seen before with my front wheel. For sure I do have the seal in backwards in previous pics. The seal really seems just slightly too big. maybe that is why the last person jammed the old one in there. sad thing is that it wasn;t the PO. It was the dealership who did this. The PO never touched the front wheel. The front wheel has not been off since the last tire change over 9,000 miles ago done by the dealership.
I am going to keep playing with it today.

Good catch Sarah. It hasn't been discussed in so long I forgot about it. Fitryder - looks like you're on the right track. Good luck!

The quickest way to check if it's a tank vent issue would be next time it happens to open the filler, wait 30-60 seconds to give it time to fill the carb back up and try to start it. If it starts, and you are comfortable riding the bike with the filler cap loose, take it for a ride and you will know soon enough if it a tank vent problem.

Of course you would not want to try that with a full tank or it may spill out onto your hot engine while you are going down the road. And we all know how that could end up.
