Fast foward to a ride couple of weeks ago and a water crossing up to the bash plate, make it through fine but gives a big cough splutter coming out the other side then continues to run fine ever since. Go to clean the air filter post ride and find that my enlightened suzuki dealer mechanic has turned my airbox into a big cheese grater.

Before taking it to the dealer i had done the airbox mod the way procycle suggest. The dealer mechanic however has gone Freddy Kruger And taken to my airbox with a 1" holesaw, the cover and the other side each have 3 more holes drilled in them.

Question time.

Does the TM40 need a tee put in the vent line from the carbie like the BST does?
Would the cough splutter from the water crossing be from the carbie vent or water getting into the airbox from al the extra holes?
Should I start looking for a new airbox?

Cheers gang

IMHO, it's a mistake to drill holes on the sides of the Air Box. Opening up top (per the Jesse Keintech template) is MORE than enough air with proper jetting. You should be able to ride into water up to about the bottom of the seat without problems. But your vent tubes have to routed up and under the seat. So some sort of T may be required. I don't have the TM40 but I'm sure there is a way to run vent hoses UP and away from water intake.

Also, with air box sides holed ... you will take in a LOT more dirt/sand into air box, filter will require service much sooner. With just the top cut open
the seat kinda blocks some of the dust. Still ... I use Filter Skin covers over air filter to extend use in very dusty conditions. Quik change to a clean one and you're good to go. They are washable.

I'm set-up in cRAsH also. Usually happens, like you noticed, when it's within 1 post of going over to a new page. Just a quirk.

I just hate it when I start reading and get down a couple posts and I run into something I already posted. Not retention in my old brain.
That's exactly what is happening to me. I'm like hey I already read this as I'm a few posts in. It is really bad when you run into one of your own posts.

Good point and probably the cause of that.

(Maier, Acerbis, Polisport) they offer complete plastic kits for around $100 to $125. (front, rear fender, side panels, shrouds) Far as I know ... not ONE company offers DR650 plastic.

The Busa is a great bike ... I've ridden them several times. I'm a bit old to to be doing 150 mph plus sport touring ... but been there, done that.
The Busa is so effortless ... a few shifts and your past 120 mph in a flash.
I only hit 150 mph ... ran out of road in Death Valley ... and too many CHP on patrol.
At 150 you haven't begun to tap the Busa's power, things get really interesting after 170

Miss my Busa but if I were to get another sport tourer it'd be the ZX 14.

Actually that's the whole point of the "T". You can run one side of the vent up high (even up to the steering head), and the other (original) side down low so the high side only comes into use if the low side is plugged or in a position to draw water in.

wavygravy87, I have the Wolfman Gen I racks with the Expedition Bags as well as the Wolfman 1 gallon H2O tank. I am very happy with that setup. I can't tell you anything about the Gen II racks. I got mine from Procycle. Maybe Jeff knows what the differences are between Gen I and Gen II.

Well, the DR650 Thread has passed 13 million hits, with no end in site.

Can anyone tell me when the U.S. DR650 model designation changed from DR650S to the DR650SE?

Thanks

I'm fairly sure it was in 1996 when it became the DR650SE (with the release of the Gen2 bike we're talking about here).

Is the difference the fact you can put the crossbar on the gen 2?

High Compression Piston

My bike has all the usual mods (I.e. pumper carb, power bomb, FMF Q4, suspension etc). Right now it lifts the front end on a roll in first and almost in second? For those of you who have done the high compression piston mod can you tell me if it will provide any significant improvement in felt power over what I already have using the stock cam?

Bring that thing up to 5000+ft and we can compare

I know this probably lost in the mix so I'll ask again. I recently bought the iridium spark plugs, one step hotter. is this going to be okay running 790 kit?

Yeah the new ones have a tab for mounting a crossbar. From what I can see, the Gen 2 racks mount a little further back and up than the originals. Also the Gen 1 had one mounting point on the rear vs. two on the Gen 2. The single rear mount would prevent any hiccups when mounting to bikes with custom (homemade ) racks. But it probably doesn't make a lick of difference so I'll just order from somewhere cheap and see what shows up

Thanks for the advice I may try and give him a shout tomorrow

I do like Iridium plugs ... but, far as I know, the ones I bought were same heat range as stock plugs. I find Denso plugs better than NGK ... but are usually more expensive. (double last I checked)

Iridium plugs last longer, burn a bit cleaner. Starting, idle and MPG all just a bit better. I've used them for the last 40,000 miles or so ... all good.
Stock plugs on my bike were WORN OUT at 8K miles.
Iridium goes to 20K.

Suzuki engineers are a bucket-load smarter than I am and I see no reason to question their judgement on plug heat range. If anything, the 790 will make more heat and a cooler plug would seem to be more appropriate. You will have heap of time and money in this upgrade, don't melt it.

Perhaps Jeff will reply, if not, a PM or e-mail would be prudent.
