Putzy: do you have a stock tank and petcock (sorry, I don't remember)? It will look like these following pics. ON PRI RES If so, remove the fuel line at the carb or petcock with the petcock set to ON, bike off. Fuel should not flow, rotate petcock to PRI, fuel should flow, quickly (so you don't burn down yer house), rotate to RES. Fuel should not flow.

Stock petcock pics:

ON:


PRI:


RES:


Stock choke assy, the black plastic is, well it's plastic and has been known to break; murdering fuel mileage and difficult to diagnose.:



Lower your idle rpm, is the idle fuel screw stock? If stock, it won't look like this:



Can you post pics, starting with the chain and sprockets?

Bad juju: (NOT MINE)



Almost forgot; what year, mileage and color?

401 kilometers, 260 miles of dirt; rock and roll.

I don't know what it's called but this is pretty much correct. If in the USA, Home Depot has square drive deck screws. The hole is 'about' 1/8" square. Buy a screw, grab it with a vice grip and bingo, a rocker adjustment tool.

After riding my '99 DR650 for seven years and 40k miles it was finally getting worn out... So I bought a new one!
I didn't care for the 2012 grey color so I found a brand new 2011 in white. It is the only 0 mile vehical I have ever bought but after riding my last one so long and hard I knew it was worth every penny. The kicker was the Suzuki Zero intrest for five years deal! I am so excited to have a fresh bike to ride and tinker with for years to come. I think that with all that I have learned from ADV. and this thread in particular that I will be able to get alot more miles out of this one before I am done with it.

wow, new bike - congrats!

but, i can't help but thinking how nice i could make your current bike, w/$5k to throw at it - big bore/bigwalves, usd rm forks, cogent rear shock, sm wheels/tires, big brake rotor, hi-flow exhaust w/gsxr can, upgrade seat, hid lighting...

ps - white is the best color!

Thumb Did a 106 mile ride today.

Went on a 106 mile ride today and used 1.9 gallons so 54 mpg is not bad. With the Procycle out of the box settings TM-40.

If the air box is modified.
It might say that in the instructions,can't remember.

That's really a bummer Putzy, sorry to hear it. Is it your dominant arm?

Zdiver1: you're right, this isn't quite what I had in mind. And putting in some fuel stabilizer is a good idea. I'd be completely satisfied with 54 mpg with a TM-40. Is the jetting 'as is' from PC?

Talking Er70s-2

I have found the acerbis tank sits lower on the frame bottom wings are much wider more fuel in lower area it is more bottom heavy then top!
It is more balanced then the stock tank.
My carb I sent to putzy was a 2011 with under 2,000 mi and had the PC jet kit.

I took it out of the box let it warm up adj the idle a half turn and have not touched it. I told jeff my setup open airbox-FMF powerbomb header- FMF Q-4 and he set it up for me!

He said it was Idling high so I wonder if the chock cable is working, I gave him a deal, I also included the throttle cables and the choke cable I also included a PC inline fuel filter.
With the TM-40 you get shorter throttle cables and a shorter choke.
