Looks like too much boot during an upshift. You're only supposed to flick it with your toe.

Thumb Pc-tm40

Well just got back from my test ride and Procycle set it up perfect for my bike! Mine is a 2011 with a open air box, FMF powerbomb and FMF Q4 can, I turned on the gas let the carb fill pulled the remote choke and it fired up I went dam! let it warm up and push the choke in and it died so I pulled the choke out and fired it back up turned the idle screw in 1 1/2 turns in and push in the choke and it sounded good so I went on a short ride and its like a fuel injected bike now.
So look for the carb I took off on the flea market it is set up with a PC jet kit for my set up and I was getting 45 to 50 mpg.
will include throttle cables and choke cable and hand pull choke. (carb is 2011 with 1900 mi)

I'm thinking about getting one for my 06 model.
Thanks

Shu runs the SW-Motech center stand I think...

I've had one for years now. Procycle and Twisted Throttle sells them. It does not interfere with the kick stand. Its a bit short though, I carry small square pieces of plywood for rear tire work. Its a great thing to have IMO....

Sure, 3 easy steps for totally destroying a tube:

1. Use cheap butyl rubber tubes.

2. Run over a nail doing 75+ mph.

3. Use a tire with a stiff sidewall so you can run it flat at 65 or 70 for a few miles, without it coming off the rim, while you decide whether that new vibration you feel is the road or your tire going flat.

I still do #1 (run the cheap tubes), and #3 (use stiff tires -MEFO). For #2, I carry my lucky rabbit's foot cause mama didn't raise no fool.

Yup! SWmotech. As far as I know, no one else makes a centerstand for the DR.

It's an ok stand- not great, but after you come to understand its quirks it's quite usable.

-not quite tall enough to remove rear tire (prop it up just a tad with block of wood, or thin, flattish rock.

-sits very close to it's tipping point (front to rear). Always strap the front wheel to the stand before you take off the rear wheel or do anything else that might rock it off the stand.

-develop your own dynamic method of hoisting the bike up on it, since it doesn't have a 'foot'.

Personally, I like it. Not too heavy, doesn't bounce around on the trail.

Hi Guys,

As said, i'm busy converting my DR to 19/ 17 wheels. Frotn is done, just waiting on the rear to be sent to my house. This weekend i received my new Continental TKC80's, s mounted up the front. The tires are new, just have been sitting in a dark garage for a few years. Only thing is... Made in Korea. I've heard some complaints about the TKC80's that were manufctured in Korea. Oh well..



So my NEW front HEidenau K60 Scout is up for sale, only used for 220 km, 1 tank of fuel.. haha. Ah well.

Greets,
Thanas

Dynojet or Procycle jet kit

hi all,

I'm beggining to research the feasibility of doing carb mod to my stock standard 2011 DR650. I was intending to buy the Dynojet Kit, however, noticed the Procycle option. Are both of these kits relatively the same and with the same expected results?

Most of the mods I've read are with Dynojet have been reasonably successful but hoping people can give me any success stories with the procycle kit??

Any guidance would be appreciated.

thanks heaps.

I think procycle has a better kit with the D shelf spacer, but I didn't have any luck with it, save your money and put it towards a TM40

Yes, on a gravel road, mini van won that fight, I was just saying that bending those mounts sucks. I did get that bike back together. I got a used stator with cover from an inmate
