RegulatorRectifier will not answer that question specifically for me yet, but here is their response:

"We have been selling this same one for your application for a little while, I can check with the tech when he gets back in a few days, but I do not think that will pose an an issue using that one. Your old pickup coil was likely reading open."

I asked if the other units they had tested within spec, but I never received a response to that question.

Motor off, the battery reads 12.6v immediately after unplugging the trickle charger, which is always plugged in when the bike is in the garage.

Thanks. Mine is dropping to 12.4v when the ignition is switched to on and staying there even with the bike running.

Regulator/Rectifier gone bad?

There is no complete swap without machining involved with the DR.

Popular swaps are... as per my knowledge...
DRZ Swingarm, Forks and wheel swap. (Expensive)
SV650 Swingarm swap for wider supermoto tire in the rear.
RM, RMZ Forks swap for better suspension
Thanks molakam! good info.

But, you asked "Dirt" . . .: a qualified answer. For a hard-pack dirt trail, semi-hard rock debris mine-field, loose rock and dirt, this is as good a set-up the 705's could handle, EVER. So, it's A+ so far.

A steep, soft dirt, moist, DID I MENTION STEEP? . . , it's not good. You'll want knobbies. So far, on all trails where the dirt is hard enough where knobbies can't penetrate and do what knobbies do. . . then, well, knobbies are useless. Square inches of contact with 'Just Enough" bite is good. Think 'Miler Flat Track'. No knobbies at the 120 mph dirt turn entries. Wide fronts. Lots of tall side wall to help conform to the lumps.

You are thinking limited 17" tire selection? Yep. You're spot-on on that one. I choose the 17" because I wanted the absolute TALLEST sidewall available to humankind, and have a tolerable overall diameter.
Nowadays the way I go over larger rocks is bump them, as the front rises, gas it a tad, then up and over. I'm not as good as I used to be. I used to raise the front BEFORE I bumped, and let the rear do the work. I NEED a lot of sidewall up front to prevent rim/tube pinches now. But, I've discovered what I've been missing all these years. I can now be sloppy in the rocks but STILL look AWESOME, riding with seemingly reckless-abandon-skill, leaving my buddies behind on their KTM's, worried about their puny low-profiled skinny tires.

Hmmm, the rear in a 18" would be nice, eh?? Hmmmmmm. And, ok, trying to cut thru with a wide front will suck compared with a 21". . .but, wth. Can't have it all I guess.

Sounds good. I think I am going with the 17 / 4.25 rear and 19 / 2.50 up front. But I love the front of your bike as it looks real stable. I am tired of getting caught in 2 - 4" cracks that are in the freeways at times as my bikes current OEM 21 front likes to follow those cracks. I call them Satans autopilot cracks.
SM or adventure front set up looks real appealing with either a 17 or 19 up front.

Its easy the other way round,DR wheel (17 mm axle) into RMZ/DRZ USD forks (20 mm axle) with some adapters.

http://s30.photobucket.com/albums/c3...ork/?start=all

I have been running that set up for sometime (picked up a RMZ 450 21 inch front wheel) now wondering if the 17 in front DR rim will lace to a RMZ hub.

Metallic "clink" when starting

Last Sunday I started the DR maybe 25 times. After about 5 starts, and when the motor was at operating temperature, when I pushed the Start button, simultaneous with the immediate ignition/run was a loud "clink." Heard the noise during two of the next five starts, then never again. Never before, either.

The noise sounded exactly like what you'd hear by striking two open-end wrenches together.

I've thought about this and looked around this site, but came up with nothing. I thought about the problem the previous generation of DR had with the starter, but mine's too new for that. My bike is a 2009 with 14+k miles on the odometer, well cared for.

I have occasionally hear the mild "screech" sound on starting a cold engine, indicating that I'll need to grease the end bearing in the starter motor this Summer.

Anyone else hear this noise? Any ideas?

Thanks,
Lex

Oh crap.

Looks like I gotta read 4195 posts to catch up on the bike I just bought today...

I guess I'll sleep next month...

Edited again to say mine came in "Theft Deterrent Gray" color

And yet another Edit to say I think my first mods will be the Pro Cycle Seat kit, bash plate, D606s, and suspension.(re-valve & re-spring for my fat arse)

I'll save the intake/exhaust mods for later...

notarat screwed with this post 04-10-2012 at 04:54 PM Reason: posts...not pages

Sorry about the bad lead! I got parts for my FCR there and just assumed they would have the BST parts as well.

Boulder: I relate to those Satan cracks. Those demons exist as friggin inline road splits elsewhere and have soiled me enough times. Those guys who haven't almost scraped an elbow from those haven't a reason in the world for a wide 19" or 17". That's ok. A guy should set-up for where they spend 98% of their time, s'pose. OR for what rep's their greatest terror.

No the new forks still need to go to the shop to have the Ohlins cartridges fitted and the rear shock serviced and re valved.
The TR5T has taken priority over the DR.

The Eldorado is waiting for a going over also and the Hypermotard needs a new chain etc.
Poor old DR waits.

My bike is not lowered. The front suspension travel is supposed to be 10.2 inches, so the brace is going to be hitting hard parts long before the fork gets to the end of travel. If you look closely at DirtySumo's picture (post 62853) you can see that there is nothing like 10+ inches of clearance. I have emailed both the maker and Procycle about the problem, but have not yet received a reply, when I do I will post it here.
Post it when you hear from them.

How I didn't crash is beyond me, but that spare tube went flying from the front tire taking out the zip ties! Made me wonder: would I have crashed with 2" less travel?

Like I tell my wife- Two more inches isn't important until you need it!

There you go then. . . " No more for Brace for You !" heh heh.. . ( I hope Seinfeld doesn't file ) .
Glad you didn't crash. I think the brace is more for people who are more concerned about street stability than off-road fork travel.. . . and even then for guys that have lots of front tire grip in turns. Unlike most DR's , I suppose mine is a bastard. Fits the owner, tho.

After you read a few posts/pages, it will become apparent that intake/exhaust mods cause as much heartache as satisfaction; kinda like a redheaded any girl friend.

Welcome
And to think my first edit was to change pages to posts...I guess I was right, but then I was wrong.

Then I went to pro cycle and got

Front Disk Fork guard
Case Armor
Skid Plate
Clean-up Backside Kit
Seat Concepts Foam & Cover kit

I think I should stop shopping soon or I'll be sleeping in a van down by the river...

I'm actually going to try my hardest not to mod the intake/exhaust to limit myself on performance. I ride with a pair of complete novice riders. As in one of them is getting his permit next month. (he rides well in the field...no road experience at all.) I don't want to find myself too far ahead of them, or make them feel they need to "keep up" and cause 'em to exceed their own capabilities. The cynic in me says, "yeah...that'll last a week." but I'm gonna give it an honest try.
