I posted this up about a year ago, but here it is again. If you turn the carb inlet to the rear, no high spots and you can get all the fuel out. It is also in the bike specific thread under fuel system. It's an IMS tank with Raptor petcock.

Cool2 Dr?

Before I reach for a Kleenex, er, tissue, let's get back to DR's.

Here is the fiberglass tank I made with my first attempt at painting with base and 2 part clear coat.
And my first ever buffing and polishing effort.
It's not great, but good enough for a dirt bike



I was trying to get a good reflection on it.







All I have left to do is the lettering and pinstripes on the tank and tail, and to mount the oil cooler, chain, and chain guide...
It has been a fun project and I look forward to riding it.
Although I will be riding my other DR a lot more often. Now I have a street (and smooth dirt road) hot rod as well as my dual sport DR that is far more comfortable to ride.

Love it or hate it but it beats some of the boring posts recently.
If only because it has pictures

So that's what my wife's been telling me about.

Meanwhile, south of the border...



Tires are looking good. MEFO rear at 4200 miles, still round and fun to ride on. It'll start to get square at about 6,000 but still have life in it. Good all round touring tire- works very well on lots of road surfaces and lasts a long time.



I'm running the Heidenau k60 Scout on front for it's long life and resistance to cupping. The MEFO front cups badly by 5,000 miles. Heidenau feels better to me in the dirt also. Looks like it's got a lot of life left in it.



We happened on the clubhouse of a local motorcycle club. 'Respect Motorcyclists!!" Right on.

JagLite - love it. That tank reminds me of a '70's CZ tank a little. Very nicely done.

has anyone had the starter torque limiter start to slip? my bike has developed a weird whining sound when trying to start the bike. The engine will still turn over, but it sure doesn't sound right.

Any thoughts? It's a 2001. with about 7,000 miles.

As per your recommendations, today I ordered the same set of tires your running. I think this question was already asked, but what the heck, what tire pressures do you run, paved/rocks/sand? How far south of the boarder have you gotten on this ride? Enjoying your warm and sunny ride report from Mexico as it snowed here today too, forest roads are still frozen over in places and the highest HILLS we have are only 1,400 feet!

Right side starter bushing needs lubrication, probably ... is it quiet(er) when warmed up? Lots of posts on how to fix this. It's pretty straightforward.

Fuel milage

with the way my DR is set up right now E7OS I got 177 165.354 fathoms from the tank before switching to reserve with another 218 722.66 cubits left approx before i totally run out of fuel. which would means i should refuel before another fortnight.

throttle cable adjusment - tm40

I have a reasonable amount of free play at the throttle. I adjusted out the free play via the adjuster located up on the handlebars. However, the throttle won't snap back when removing the corrected amount of free play.

Do I need to go down to the 'pull' cable to add some adjustment there, to help with the snap back OR do I need to leave it where it is and have that bit of free play??

Just to note, I don't have any binding (nor did I - but will check after I finish with adjustments).

thanks from the noob.

I'd like to do just that but can't get the elbow to budge!

Anyone know if an after market seat (Renazzco) for an IMS tank will fit a DR with the Acerbis 5.3 gallon tank??
