FastEddy - congrats and welcome aboard! Ride it a bit and figure out if there's anything you want to change. It's nice to get something new for yourself once in a while.

Graniteone - sounds like some personalizing. Very nice. As mentioned, get a feel for the front end and keep the upgrades in mind. The shock changes may affect the way the front works for you.

Wayno - looks fine IMO. Mine is closer than that - I have the AMP guard on there too. I'd rather have it closer than further away. Plenty of protection and not sticking out there to take a bite outta me while I ride it into the ground.

For the moment, there's no filter in the line, aside from the one on the Pingle tap inlet.

I rode about 30 km and the bike didn't hiccup even once, so that's a good sign.

I also put new spark plugs in and blew all the passageways out of the carb so it's hard to tell which change is responsible.
What I did was remove the stock carb nipple and replaced it with a straight one so I could just run the fuel line straight to the carb. And for a filter I just use the stock one. Oh the horror! But it's dead easy to check and clean with my arrangement.

Did the stock filter fit properly in your straight nipple? Did you drill and/or tap the carb for something like this? How did you get the stock one out?



"Oh the horror", I'm still running mine too.

I have been using a clear pancake style fuel filter with my IMS and FCR. The fuel line spring (hose support)as been install on the elbow portion.

(I would look for the arrow though) I wish they'd put (or make available) a 5/16" nipple on them (8mm), which is the stock nipple at both the petcock and carb. 1/4" works but................ I don't like it.

Have you looked at this thread? There are some good ideas there.

When I did mine,


, I tried to turn the stock intake pipe but felt too much force was needed. I cut it off and tapped a thread into the steel tube left, a straight metric thread, and then the BSP tapered fitting from the plumbing shop was recut with the same thread to remove the taper and match the thread. Assembled with Loctite Master Gasket and it worked fine with no leaks.

Thanks for another idea.

Your description flashed me back many years. I had a small 12 gallon air compressor and wanted a little more capacity. I had a cylinder about the size of a 20 pound propane bottle, but the threads were different than the pipe threads on the air chuck I wanted to use. What the heck, I was young and dumb (I miss the young part, but I've gotten used to the dumb part ), so I epoxied the nipple into the bottle (the threads were a snug fit, but they wouldn't hold air; so pressure wasn't going to shoot the air chuck through my forehead ). I still use that bottle as a portable air supply. Disclaimer: if someone blows themselves up; blame Darwin not me.

Picked up a 2009 DR650SE today, already set up very nicely for me

Looking for an extra set of hubs/wheels.

I absolutely love it, it is everything I expected and I got a killer deal. Just installed the tail tidy kit from procycle and new gun metal skid plate from procycle, looks awsome. Also got some case savers to put on. I appreciate all the great advice I have read on this forum it helped me decide which bike to go with. I look forward to posting some awsome ride pictures once I get her broken in and I can start letting loose. I would post a picture of it with the new skid plate etc. but I'm not sure how. You have to have a photobucket account or the likes?

Here's my setup. Never an issue. I haven't twisted the elbow on the carb and personally think it's unecessary. I've had no dramas with air locks or otherwise that some have talked about here, but I do have to lay the bike on its left side to get any fuel that is left from the right side of the IMS tank to the left side, but I seldom run my fuel down that low. Filter was an ebay one and has replaceable insert. I Totally ran my bike out of fuel once and the tank took 20.4 litres to refuel. I know the fuel pump was calibrated correctly - for the critics out there. IMS say it's 21 litre tank but my bike had 35000k on it by then and the tank had obviously stretched a bit with time and hot climate. (that was also after draining fuel from right side of tank to the left before running out completely)

The stock IMS vented cap is left to vent. You are asking for trouble by blocking it. Even the standard steel tank cap vents -you just can't see it.
Did I mention 'performance bits' ?... (just kidding)

no worries. The fuel line itself is a pretty clear purple colour and is standard fuel line bought from a bike shop. It;s vey snug and as you can see, I don't even use a clamp on it at the tap or the filter. It still takes some prising to get the line off when I want, so I am not worried about it slipping off at all.

By the way, with regards to fuel tank cap venting, I use the same fuel line and a valved vent of the end of it. Never a worry with getting shit in your tank or fuel spilling from the vent line.

Here's a piccy.

It's new purple bike day!



Just snagged this '97 Miami dream date off of craigslist. I named it Steve Winwood.

Anyway, ol' Steve's got this horrible aftermarket exhaust on it that makes it sound like some kind of Thunder Alley mess. Gives me a headache.

Went on eBay to dig around for an OEM and came across a few specimens, but they were listed as year specific - I was under the impression that these were relatively unchanged from '96. Is it possible to make an exhaust from a 2012 bike work on this one?

Wow, nice find. Congrats!

AFAIK they are all the same.
