gsxr muffler jetting and turn signal question

Have a new dr to me and it surges quite a bit on top, it has the jet kit and a gsxr muffler, my friends bike has the jet kit and the stock can and runs great, is there a different jetting spec for the gsxr can? i live in michigan so elevation isnt a factor. I also have one rear turn signal thats always on and the flasher doesnt work, relay? bulb?


Thanks Greg

Very impressive homemade farkles on the Aussie DR! There is a homemade farkle thread on which you may want to share those.

cueldee - Very nicely done. One thing I enjoy is seeing the home built mods....especially since it's beyond my skillset to get that stuff done. Thx for posting that.

I'm 5/9" but with a 28-29 inseam. And I don't like tall bikes (don't like the feeling of foot dangling in mid air on the downhill side of a trail!). Based on input from this forum, I bought a DR650 as a do-it-all bike. The rear has the lower setting on the shock plus a 1 inch lowering link, plus a Sargent lower seat. Front end is lowered in the forks. I don't ride this one in anything rougher than forest service roads so the loss of suspension travel is moot. I can now flat foot the bike and on road handling is fine.

I do agree however that dual sport and adventure bikes are too high for a lot of riders. I've been riding since 1968 and bikes have gotten consistently taller.

I just used the stock DR mounts and bars when I fitted the RMZ forks to my bike.

You made the panniers from used Real Estate signs?

Cool.

If it is gear chips, it should sound quite whiny all of a sudden. Especially in 3rd.

start looking in a way that wont cost much money, witch hunting can get expensive.

1- take the engine side covers off first, it may be that something has broke in there, if so you fix it and buy a new side cover gasket and thats not too expensive.
2- if nothing was found in side covers then, remove rocker cover, look there for suspect items, remove head, remove cylinder just enough to get the wrist pin out leaving the piston in the bore, look down in the case on the clutch basket side 3rd is pretty easy to see, rotate the crank and look at the gears, it may need to be in gear to make some of them turn.
3- if gears look ok and side covers were ok then you will probably have to split the cases as you would have had to if 3rd was bad.

which jetting kit? procycle advised me that the gsxr muffler is less restrictive than the standard pipe, but still a tad restrictive compared to the power pipes (but well worth it for the low decibels i reckon). from memory the biggest main jet was 160 and they suggested the 150 for the gsxr pipe but i just ran with the 160 and she's running nicely with good fuel economy.

your jetting kit should have come with recommendations based on the type of pipe you are using?

Gas cap question

Has anyone taken the gas cap apart? I have two, one like new, the other beaten up. I wanted to exchange the guts so the nice one would share the same key as the ignition. I got it mostly apart, but I couldn't easily get the key barrel out. I didn't want to force it and end up breaking it.

Knowledge sharers out there?
