So true .......that applies to almost every air (and oil) cooled engine

Thing is ... the aftermarket plastic companies typically pick the most popular and newer bikes. Mostly race motocross bikes are provided for.

ALL the Suzuki RM and RMZ series are covered by companies like Acerbis, Maier and others. The DR650 never made the Cut. Shame. Moto Cross guys fall down all the time ... they scuff up body work then buy all new plastic before selling the bike off and buying next year model. On and on.

But anybody looking around the market will see that NOW the DR650 is a hugely popular bike. More and more suppliers are jumping in and making Parts to fit the DR650.

Thing is ... plastic body work will never be a big seller on the DR as most guys don't do serious off road and don't crash much.
NO PROFIT = NO PARTS.

Pro Cycle saw this popularity coming ... and gathered together all the companies that provide DR650 support. (a major effort I would think) So now we've got ONE STOP shopping. Will be interesting to see if someone steps up in future with aftermarket plastic for the DR ... we've only waited 16 years!
Actually my xrl side covers are genuine honda, complete with heatshields....I'm a hayabusa.org member, and Justin from Honda East Toledo gives org members a discount.
BTW he carries parts for all the big 4......might not be bad to join up just for the discounts......of course with enough reading you might end up buying a busa

And I agree the most crashed bikes get the best aftermarket plastic support....I guess we gotta start crashing our big brutes more

airbox mod overdone

Hey brainstrust

Put the TM40 from procycle on a couple months ago, i'm hopeless with carbies and couldn't get it tuned right so took it to the local suzuki dealer who tuned it on the dyno. Farken sweet, good work guys, goes great guns. 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

It sounds like your bike is running great, and you're really enjoying the way its running now...I'm guessing the holed airbox is a big part of that equation. I've also cut my airbox, but just the top, and it made a nice difference in throttle response an willingness to rev, combined with my full exhaust and other mods.
Its just my opinion, but I would just avoid deep/fast water crossings.
I avoided them before I cut my airbox.....its too hard on machinery to play submarine with them, I leave that to the guys who stall the bike in knee-deep water, and take half an hour to get it started again
I like treating my machinery good so it lasts a long time, and runs reliably for me

One more page in the thread, but can't open it?

This seems to be the only thread I see this in, but right now I'm on page 1847 and it shows there is one more page 1848, but when I click on it, or the right arrow, or even type it in the address bar, I'm brought right back to page 1847?

BTW, I'm on the layout "cRASH" with 40 posts per page. I tried layout "ADV Rider 2.0", but it does the same thing.

We'll see if my post here appears on page 1847 or ends up on 1848.

And my post started page 1848 with post 73881. I guess when its the last post on the page, my setup has a glitch that shows the next page there even know there isn't a post yet to read on that page. We'll guess its nothing to worry about then. Just strange.

Happens to me all the time. In other threads too.

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.

I think the weird last page is because of deleted or archived posts which still exist but are not accessible to regular users.

Its happened to me from day one, on every thread I've ever visited. Every site has its own little "quirks"...this one is pretty easy to live with considering some of the other sites I visit....ThumperTalk being one of the most glitchy/hard to post on sites
