Not a chain guide, a chain guard. What Suzuki calls a "chain case". Part number 19 in this diagram...

I can believe that you lost it. I have a new '07 with 1200 miles on it and I was doing a pre ride inspection today and found the forward bolt gone. I took it off so I wouldn't lose it. I'll find an appropriate bolt and reinstall it with some blue loctite.

I was gonna lube the chain but decided not to because I didn't want to wear it. LOL

I have them but I paid more then that used. They look like the Happy Trails Original design. I think this guy is selling knockoffs. I like mine. I would recco that you buy some before the seller does time.

Man, hard to keep up with this thread.

I've seen quite of few DR owners who say the bike feels content at 70-75mph. To my untrained ear, it feels really happy at 50-55mph, stock gearing. Any idea what kind of RPM's these things turn at a given speed? (GPS speed, the speedo is 10% off)

my 02 has only been in my garage for about 3 weeks, but it's been a liberating experieince. It reminds me of when I got my first real bicycle. I've been taking some (paved) roads I'd never try on my previous street bikes. Just because they're there. Just to see where they go.

I also ventured over Redington Pass here in Tucson. It's hardly ADV-worthy, but I sure wouldn't try it with my Tuono. My (64-year-old) Dad is so pumped about my DR, he's looking for one too; in the Phoenix area. He's a H-D guy, but he wants to "get back to basics," in his words.

The more I ride it, the more I like it. Good stuff guys, thanks.

No kidding! I put my Beemer up for sale today. It's just parked now. I'm having too much fun! I'm going to replace it with a KTM Adv 990. At least then when I take my other bike out it will have some of the "Fun" qualities of my DR. This thing just oozes fun.

I agree. Like I mentioned earlier, I bet they'd be popular here but that's not a bet that Suzuki is willing to take. I don't blame them. They'd never beat out the cruiser market here. It's a business choice and most of the time they are pretty smart about these things. Most of the time.

Mine feels happy between 62-65 indicated in top gear. Around 50-55 indicated, it feels like it is lugging in top gear, so I shift to 4th.

That's still true for me after six years of riding it. Simple, basic versatility.

Rejetting

Well, I bit the bullet and am doing the jetting on my '06 DR. I disconnected most everything from the carb, I just have one more line. Question is, on the right side of bike, there are two lines coming off carb, one goes to small filter above the airbox, does anyone know where the other goes.
I put pix here
http://web.mac.com/chriskoz/iWeb/Site/dr650%20Carb.html
if anyone feels like looking.
The line may need to be plugged. This may be why I am getting a rough idle. If anyone has a picture of their airbox with the holes cut out, that would be a big help as well.
Thank You

little hose

I think that one goes to atmosphere. Make sure it isn't plugged or kinked and run it back to the rear like over the airbox. Just let it hang free out the side once and see if the bike runs better.

Make sure the other small vacuum line is hooked to the petcock and not kinked. I think those are the only 3 lines you have to mess with but it has been a while since I did mine, so maybe wait for someone with some sense chimes in!!!!

If you start with the fuel screw out maybe 1.5 turns or so, it should run and you should be able to tune it in/out from there.

Forgot to mention I have an IMS tank so there is only one line coming off petcock, other line is plugged coming off carb.
Thanks for the help so far

I have a topgun digital tach/hourmeter kit fitted, at 110kph indicated it runs ~4320rpm. With 14T front sprocke, that was ~4670rpm.

I was getting 5.7L/100km with the 14T. With the OE 15T back in, getting 5L/100km on the same commute. I have a 145main jet, slide drilled, airbox door pre-filter.

The 14T is perfect everywhere except for the fuel range dropped on the highway... i.e. effectively taking 1.4L more out of the 13L tank.
