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 don't like it.

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

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

This is with fresh gas, and a cleaned float bowl.
EmmBeeDee, Did you check the vent in your gas cap? I've had the same symptoms when I used a handlebar mounted bag that pinched the gas cap vent hose. I had to keep lifting the bag every few km to let air in the tank.

Because of this, I run the fuel line upward and then back to the carb, so some of the fuel line runs above both the petcock outlet and carb inlet. After sitting for a while with the petcock off, sometimes an air "bubble" will develop in the fuel line and the weight of the gas above the petcock intake is not heavy enough to push out the air "bubble" and there is not enough gas in the line to syphon gas through the fuel line into the carb. The bubble could be from fuel boiling after shutting down the bike when it it very hot or maybe even a leaking float valve or maybe just from a lot of time? When that happens and I start the bike, it will run long enough to drain whatever is in the fuel bowl and then stumble like it is running out of gas, just like you are experiencing. When this happens, I just hold the fuel line down below the petcock and carb for a couple seconds to make sure the fuel line completely fills with gas and it works perfectly again until I let the bike sit unused for too long. This only happens a couple times a year, so it is not a big enough problem for me to buy a new petcock and correctly route the fuel line. So, check to see if the fuel line is routed above the petcock outlet and carb inlet. If so, that may be your problem...

One of these years I'll replace that silly IMS petcock with one that points the right way and fix it for good, but at least I know what happens if the engine ever starts sputtering and can fix it in 10 seconds...
I must be missing something here,I put an IMS tank on my DR 26,000 miles ago and have never given it a thought,I hooked up a fuel line. The bike goes till it hits reserve,then I run it on reserve awhile.
Then I put gas in it.
No special routing of fuel lines,no bubbles,no troubles.

Why is my DR so boring to maintain? I never fix anything on it.

The tank and gas supply is well above the fuel tap in the carb,gas will run into the carb. Gravity says so.
