I have some spare engine parts at home I could look at later and see if it would be possible.

Also, take a look at some of these cases on ebay and it may help you see if you have access.

Oil residue may make the washer stick somewhere. Are you absolutely sure it went through that hole?

You might could take the right cover off, lay the bike on the right side, and flush it out with some diesel fuel through the left...dunno.
Yah I'm sure the washer went down. It was stuck on the top behind the mag for a while. I was using a metal pic to try to work it up and it slipped down. I heard it hit and thought that it was going to be sitting right behind the bottom of the mag. That's when I saw the slot that it had slipped into. If you get a chance to check out your extra parts you have and see if those holes continue onto the other side would be extremely helpful. I'm west coast so I have a few more hours until I get out of work and start wrenching again. I'm thinking the right side cover, but would hate to take that cover off and screw something up on that side also. All this for a simple valve adjustment job.

They won't be holding a lot of weight, they are mostly there to keep my saddlebags from hitting the sides of my bike.

I should be riding it either up to Grand Mesa or down to The Great Sand Dunes in a few weeks.

TrophyHunter, I'm going to triple check the bottom of the mag tonight. Then I'm going to pop the right side off and go fishing with my magnet. It looks straight forward. Is there anything that I need to worry about falling out? Gears, springs, etc..

Krylon Fusion paint. It is made to chemically bond to plastic. Works great and is tough once it fully hardens (7 days).

Thanks. Yeah, I need to get a skidplate. I've already taken it on some pretty gnarly 4WD mountain trails over the couple of years I've owned it. Probably 500 off road miles on it so far.

Just need to sit down and order one.

CJ- Really like the looks of it!

And, that has to be one of the nicest/clearest photos of a DR I've seen. Super model photography for a DR... I can die happy now!

Edit: Loveland still a hidden secret or has it been taken over? I used to go there 20 years ago from PA just to buy barrel racing horses. Loved that place. Kind of place you dreamed of retiring to!

Sounds like it's been taken over...

The city is south of Fort Collins, its larger neighbor and the county seat. The two cities have been steadily growing towards each other over the last several decades and are considered to be a single metropolitan area by the U.S. government.

I have a newish left over K60 from my F800 but it's a 140. Anyone know if a 140 can be shoe horned in on the DR or is it too wide ?

Thanks. My other hobby is photography. I didn't spend any time on this one though, just a quick snap out in my yard at my shop with my D600.

I am going to ride up into the mountains tomorrow, so I should get some better photos there


Loveland is turning into a pretty large town. I think we have something like 65,000 people here now. They've also built a large shopping area out by the interstate which is bringing more and more people here. It is the shopping location for much of northern Colorado and southern Wyoming now.

It is kind of a win/lose situation. There is more work, so that is good for the economy, but there is A LOT more people, so there is actually traffic here now and there are more homes being built. Loveland is really loosing its small town feel

The FMF, IMHO, is junk. They are light but not well made and don't last.
The Q4 model is still quite loud ... and still requires re-packing, which is a PITA.

So what are you left with?
Most on this thread figured it out years ago. The best choice is to find a nice GSXR Ti muffler, buy the mid pipe from Jesse and your done. The stock Suzuki Ti pipe is world class quality, will last forever. No repacking.
Quiet and quite light weight. Yes, the FMF is a couple lbs. lighter but not even close in quality. I paid $50 usd for my GSXR pipe. They come up for sale and are generally more now due to demand. Totally worth it. Buy one.
Yes, I've been looking around for a GSXR slip on but haven't really discovered any (I'm not that sure what I'm looking for either, apart from searching for "GSXR muffler" on eBay: like this one: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/5378-LEO-...ht_1233wt_1062 but not sure at what I'm looking at??). Is there anywhere that sells them upfront.

Matto!

Here's a pic looking at the right side with the cover off. See the light at the lower right? That's a flashlight pointing in at the slot on the left side where your washer fell in! Looks like a pretty straight shot to me. Happy fishing!

BTW, nothing behind that cover to worry about. You have to align the clutch pin when removing/installing, but no falling parts. If you haven't already done so, you should do the NSU bolts while you're there (look it up).

Here's everything you wanted to know about the GSXR pipe on the DR...

https://docs.google.com/presentation...nt#slide=id.i0

Basically a stock pipe from an 01/02 GSXR 1000 with x40F0x stamped on it.

Awesome, thanks for taking the time to post a great picture, looks like a straight shot. I will definitely tackle the NSU bolts while in there, good call. I didn't even know that there was an issue with them until today while googling my other issue. I'm going to leave the mag on and dive into the clutch side tonight.

I thought he was sunk too, until Burnt Toast posted his pic.

You have about a 50% chance of reusing your clutch cover gasket; mine was welded to the cover and a pita to remove.

There are several different NSU ideas here:

Loved your photo. Pink is even prittier than red. I thought yer goose was cooked. There's no way you're getting to the washer through the right side access hole, nor through the drain plug. Burnt Toast to the rescue.

Photo thanks to ADV8, he drew the boxes for another issue. I drew the letters for this issue. Ok, so I like smilies.

Thanks for the input all. I loosened the lower clamps and the wheel went to just about perfect with just a little cycling of the suspension.
