Lol, I removed all the interlock stuff. Last time I stood there and proudly explained to someone all that I had done and removed and how it was only required to protect idiots from themselves in the first place..... Then I promptly pushed the starter with the bike in gear and clutch out, bike lurched forward, side stand dug in and I nearly dropped the lot.

What

Check the video to see what it can do.

Best to use, and lightest and smallest I know of, and I've tried a few over the years, including one like Rusty's above.

We not long did a group buy on the Oz sub forum. They are not cheap, but they will not let you down, they just work. They may or may not be available ATM.

I also carry a few masterlinks and some spare chain.
ask them to throw in a couple of extra pins with this one. i had my pin shatter. was at home so no big deal but on the trail that would be a little more serious.

Check the website and video, they have a new grub screw designed to do the job now. Very reasonable price in their parts section. Ordered one today. This is one of the good tools for home or trail.

I have mine apart, the starter clutch seems noisy and she has an oil leak from the inner generator cover so Rotor has to come off to access that anyway.
Does anyone know, is the rotor bolt left or right hand threaded? I know its tight, I snapped one on a Kawasaki year ago as I didnt realise the thread was a left hand 'clockwise to remove' job.

Thanks, in advance.

but, the prices for the gsxr cans should be dropping; if not, don't buy one. i wouldn't pay over $100 shipped for one. now that kientech also has a midpipe set-up for the hyabusa can - which seems to be every bit as good as the gsxr1000 can, and a lot more plentiful - there's no reason to limit your search to these gsxr cans...

Thanks. I did not know that the Hayabusa can's would work. I just saw one GSXR can for $250 and was looking for an alternative to fit my thrifty wallet.

I did not think about it needing frequent repacking. I have a roll of insulation from Home Depot ofr my trials bike that could be used. Repacking is not so bad, but I do not want it to be loud.

I'll make sure and post pictures if I do it.

I think Star Tron costs much more to use plus it's for ethanol issues only yes?, & not continual cleaning & lubrication in the oil & thus fuel pumps, carbs, FI plus valve & piston carbon cleaning. i've looked into my spark plug hole and the top of my piston is clean. i've seen some heavily carboned DR pistons to know this is not always the case.
You sold me! Just ordered some from Amazon. I wonder how many others did too?

Hey, that's how I got my DR650. Reading about it on the internet and getting psyched. Winter blues and the Net, what a combination.

Yeah, I'm going to have to pick some up too. My poor ol bike is getting up in miles and years. Any preventative maintenance I can do to keep it running great is going to be on my list.

Thank you sir.

Now removed, just ordered a tool to remove rotor, my starter mechanism/motor seems noisy but now its apart, I can find nothing wrong, I have removed gears and ran the starter motor unloaded, it seems quiet. Its fair to say, Im puzzled.


When I get the rotor off, will I find rollers and springs? Anyone?

Welcome Wales.

Is your 'noisy' a squeal/squall when starting? Many of us have had that issue, it's the bushing in the starter on the right side (by the CCT). I greased mine about 30,000 miles ago and it hasn't made a sound since. I just took the cap off, put a wad of marine grease in the cup and reassembled it. Be sure you learn about the CCT (needing TDC, retracting the plunger and latching, releasing the plunger after installed).

If it's a mechanical crunching/grinding, yer on yer own.

Procycle did a nice photo shoot on the starter over here, including a port for future lubing.

Metal sound

I recently Big bored my bike. I went for a ride today, and while on the highway it started to make a very loud metal sound and died when I pulled over. I restarted the bike, and rode slowly home. Initially I thought the valves came undone, but after checking it, the sound remains. Any suggestions?

Here is a video of the sound:

CCT? sorry, not sure what that is. Yes, sounds like an old kawasaki starter on a 70s zed. The motor runs quiet when spinning free and without load.
Help!!!!!!
