What's the consensus on the best procedure to get a spare key?

1. Go to the nearest Suzuki shop.
2. Go to the nearest store that copies keys.
3. Go to a locksmith?
4. None of the above. Remove the ignition switch.

Thanks in advance for your sound advice.
Go to a real locksmith who has a full complement of blanks. Preferably one who has a storefront. Not one of those fly by night jobbies. The dr had a specific blank that works. 10 bucks by the time you are done.

I went to a locksmith and he had a blank which he copied my Suzuki key pattern to. Cost $3.

The Good News - I'm a half-a-mile from an Ace Hardware store.
The Bad News - I still can't use the front door key they copied.
Still, it's too convenient to pass up. Thanks for the lead.

I used a locksmith once for a steel BMW key. That worked out pretty good.
Probably my next stop if Ace doesn't come through.

Sorry, I should have read that better but it brings up a question I have. I thought I had read some where in the past about a filter in that location but I couldn't find it in the exploded carb diagram, I'm running an external fuel filter in the fuel line so I'd like to get rid the small one in the elbow. What's it take to do this? Also the elbow is stuck in its current position, any suggestions on how to get it off with out breaking it?

2013 DR-650 noise??



OK so I took my new DR out for it's maiden voyage I had 31 miles on the ODO so I opted to be easy on it for a few.....well not so easy to do on such a fun machine and here in the mountains of east Tennessee.

When I got home from my ride 155 miles on the ODO I noticed a noise from the left side of the case a kinda thumping noise....is this normal? also had to adjust the chain just after one ride. Now I believe in break em in like you want them to run but gheesh! So today I changed the oil and filter at 155 miles and installed the magnetic drain plug. Are these things normal? to me the oil seemed kinda milky any thoughts?

All it takes is a small pair of pliers to pull the filter out by the lip (sounds painful, no?).

More time with the new suspension

I rode for a bit today on some stuff I'd ridden in the past, so I could get a feel for how the suspension is working. Wow. It's so different it's like two different bikes. I got one spot where there was a slight hop to the rear suspension, but otherwise, it just sticks regardless of the conditions. I rode a bit at an off road park, slow putting around stuff, then went to some forest service roads I've ridden a few times. The bike felt planted at just about every speed. There were places I'd normally feel slightly out of control at 25mph that I was riding at 45mph. My top speed on dirt roads today was 70mph and I only slowed down due to lack of sight distance and cattle. Getting the suspension dialed is a hell of a lot of fun too!

Doing my 790 kit this week. I bought a pair of ngk CR9EIX from Procycle. These are labeled as the hotter plugs. Did I make the right choice, or should I have gone with the standard plugs?

Gooder job planemanx15. This is my kind of unit when I first seen it on the Porcycle web page. Go big or go home is what my dad said.
