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??

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

thanks from the noob.
TD,

Didn't you adjust the 'pull' cable? If so, yes, you may need to slacken the 'push' cable to allow the butterfly to snap closed.

I know of a few folks that simply remove the 'push' cable as it's redundant (I have not but I did on my DR350SE). There's already a big return spring on the carburetor itself so why add another cable? Some opine that it's due to liability and the 'push' cable is some attorney's idea of how to reduce/eliminate said liability. YMMV.

So, adjust the 'pull' cable with slack in the 'push' cable. Then, remove the slack from the 'push' cable without binding things up. Extra slack in the 'push' cable won't harm anything.

Any thoughts? It's a 2001. with about 7,000 miles.
My DR does that when temps are below 40 F. As inmate 'dman' indicated, the starter bushings need lubrication. Unfortunately, the starter can't be removed without pulling the cam chain tensioner. It's not difficult but it's not as trivial as just removing the starter and lubing the bushings.

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!

Hi Jeff-

If you look at a map of Mexico we went to the farthest point south on the curve of the Pacific coastline. Little town called Puerto Angel, due south of Oaxaca. 95 - 98* F down there. We're now back up in the highlands west of Mexico City.

Tire pressure for MEFOs and Heidenaus: I've settled on 26 front and 28 rear. Plenty hard for the relatively lightweight DR and I've never worried about bending rims or slipping tires/tubes. Occasionally I'll lower the pressure for sand but never below 20 psi- maybe I'd ride sand better if I did but I don't want to risk my wheels etc.

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

Only stiff seats like Corbins typically have a problem fitting different tanks.

does anyone have any tips on how to get every last drop of fuel out of the stock DR tank.? I replaced my stock tank and have it for sale and there seems to be some fuel in there. I have poured what I could out of the petcock etc. I guess it may/should evaporate out of there?

Didn't someone post recently that it could be possible to just pull the end cap off the starter to re lube the bushing with removing the cam chain tensioner?

The Renazco's are built on the stock pan, so it should fit just fine.

Did you find really heavy winds in the area of Puerto Angel? In 2008 on my way to Costa Rica we crossed into Guatemala at Tapachula Mx. Thought it must be the windiest place on earth. There were 100's of electric generating wind mills along that coastline for probably 40 miles. Was very dangerous riding with the high winds and sand on the pavement. One of the few times I have felt real fear on a motorcycle. Wish I had been riding my DR instead of my V Strom.

Turn it upside down and shake the fuel out the filler. That will get most of it.

Hey shu

I did a quick check on googlemaps and it shows Puerto Angel is something like 2,300 miles south of Denver, another 1,700 miles and you guys would have ended up at the Panama Canal! I was just jealious, now I'm just pissed! So how many days did it take you to ride to Puerto Angel?

Jeff
