Thanks!
Yes, I coated the inside of the tank with Caswell tank sealer.
It has a better reputation than POR or Cream (sp?) liner.
It is a special epoxy that completely seals the inside permanently.
It can also be used to save a rusted through steel tank even.
For a metal tank, the inside rust is removed and any holes through are just taped over.
Pour the sealer in and rotate the tank around so it coats every surface and then drain out any excess.
I was surprised how little drained out! It really makes a thick film.

I coated it even though they don't put Ethanol in the gas up here in Alaska. No alcohol problems.

I have fiddled with it and can't get the chock to stay on, seemed to work for a couple months at best. I played with the adjustor and tried to find something else to make it work but nada. Anyone have a fix?

Same problem here, barely stays out and often goes in on its own. The detent in the knob end is too weak for the spring. I believe I used both my original spring and plunger and this may have helped some.

I pulled my starter over Christmas and lubed up the end cap bushing. It did need the CCT and FCR removing, but not the exhaust. A stock BST may not need removing, or maybe it can be just twisted around a bit?

That was almost 30,000 miles ago and the starter hasn't made a peep since.

Get something to sit on and take your time. It's very tight in there so patience is a virtue. BD already mentioned that the engine needs to be at TDCC for proper CCT R&R.
It is only the end cap that needs to come off as the nose bearing is lubed by the gearbox.

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.

We actually stopped just short of Puerto Angel at Pochutla and turned west for Puerto Escondido. Not windy at all when we came through. I guess we were lucky.

It was hot, though.

Jeff


2300 miles sounds right.

It actually has taken us about 4,000 miles to get here the way we did it.

We left home about March 6 so it's been about 3 weeks. We're starting to wend our way back north now. Maybe a couple more weeks on the road, then a well deserved rest from our 'vacation'.

^^^^^ If anyone is taking notes: this information thoroughly covers the CCT.

Timely too.

I hate it when people talk in TLA language.

It's not really me that has an issue with them, but I can just imagine people saying WTF is a BST?

I pulled my starter over Christmas and lubed up the end cap bushing. It did need the CCT (AKA (Also Known As) Cam Chain Tensioner) and FCR (Flat ?? Flat slide carburetor manufactured by Keihin and often adapted to DR650s) removing, but not the exhaust. A stock BST (Bing?..... probably not as Bing is a German carburetor used on older BMWs (Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, a German car and motorcycle manufacturer) among others ( Dunno, but BST 40 is the stock DR650 carburetor manufactured by Mikuni) may not need removing, or maybe it can be just twisted around a bit?

Better?
