Would this fit on the 05 DR650? This is much cheaper than Procycle TM-40

I can't answer the question but you'll still have to figure this out, which is included in Procycle's kit. $159.95

A few pages back, I posted about my dilemma involving a pin that I found stuck to my magnetic oil drain plug during an oil change. After some investigating and agonizing, I decided to take the advice of a Suzuki dealership's mechanic. He said they do find extraneous parts in engines once in a while, and given what I told him about my situation (as expressed in post# 57910 here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...7#post17482497), he'd just ride the **** out of it and keep two fingers on the clutch lever for the first 1000 miles in case things lock up.

So, that's what I am doing, and it's been fine so far. There just doesn't seem to me to be any way the cam knock pin or the ones inside the driven gear of the counterbalancer shaft could pop out without those parts being removed and disassembled. I really appreciate the input that I got from people here to help me figure out where such pins are used in the engine, etc. Thanks, everyone!

Wish me luck, or tell me I'm foolish -- I'm open to hearing about it. It wouldn't be the first time I did something stupid.

Oh, and for the record, my 2002 model has a metal base gasket, which I thought wasn't used until at least 2003. I'm not complaining!
Wierd shit happens! I did a motor for a guy who installed it in his boat himself (took about a year) and soon as he fired it up it was knocking (I had ran it on the dyno before he got it--no knocking then). So I figure a piston pin stuck after sitting so long and agree to pull it apart at my expense. When I get the heads off I find a needle bearing stuck in the top of the piston. I don't take anything apart in the shop with needle bearings so I have no idea where it came from. The customer came over and looked at it and admitted he was taking apart his Bravo Drive and a few needle bearings came up missing and didn't give it a second thought. He was willing to pay for me to fix it after that!

Other things I have found pulling motors apart: screws from pipe clamps, washers, bolts, plastic shavings, and a few things I couldn't even identify.

By the time you're done you'll be into it for nearly the same price as a brand new bolt-on kit from ProCycle. Just bite the bullet and order it. $450 may seem like a lot of cash, but their kit is the bomb!

I'm not positive ... but pretty sure metal base gaskets didn't come until '04 or '05. Not sure. But that could be how a bit metal bit got in the engine.

Others here will no more on year when Suzuki began using Metal base gaskets. Many owners changed them out ... another unnecessary expense as you can fix the oil leak with a bead of Silicone.

Fingers crossed for you ... but I'm sure ALL IS WELL! BE HAPPY .... ENJOY THE RIDE!

The '03 I just bought has a metal base gasket. The PO seemed very knowledgeable regarding DR's - told me he's had 7 or 8 of them, and said they switched to metal base gaskets sometime in '03. My '02 does not appear to have the metal base gasket, but no leaks, yet.

Aftermarket top clamps

I am looking for an aftermarket top clamp for the handlebars that includes holes for mounting power ports and switches. I have seen one that is billet al that can be ordered with different configurations of power and switch layout.

Anybody know the name of the company. Seems like they were made in Montana. (I think?) I am looking for one for a KTM but saw it in this forum I'm sure.

Please help.

Hmm... The good news is, if it is the cam pin then no harm will result in running without it. Especially now that the pin has found its way out of the motor.

OK,
It has been a long time since I had a bike with a carb sine I have been chasing the rondel and she is fuel injected. My DR has a petcock and it has thee positions. The PO put an aftermarket tank and petcock. So there is reserve, prime and run (i guess). Should I turn it off of run when I park her? Not having any problems just wondering. She is a daily rider. Thanks Carcajou

It's probably a good idea to make a habit of always turning the petcock to "off" when you shut off the engine.

If the needle valve and seat are in good shape, the float is adjusted correctly, and the two little o-rings associated with it are in good shape, fuel shouldn't keep flowing into the float bowl once the bowl is full enough to close the needle valve. However, if fuel does keep flowing, you can end up with a lot of fuel getting into the airbox, and worse, into the engine.

At that point, you'll have to change the oil because it's got gas in it, and you'll have to drain the airbox and maybe clean your air filter. Also, I've read that if you try to start the engine when a lot of fuel has drained into it, and if things are exactly wrong, the connecting rod can bend under the stress of trying to compress a liquid.

So, turning the petcock off can save you a lot of grief.

Good habit to turn it off,it's kind of hard to see but there is a little arrow on the lever.When I had the stock tank I used the GF's red nail polish and painted the arrow side,way easier to see.
