That the cold start enrichment circuit doesn't need to be activated for cold starting points to a rich condition. What is the fuel level in the float bowl?

Thanks for the reply.

I've never checked this before, but I will try the method mentioned a few posts back and measure the diff from 1.5mm. If anyone has a pic of more or less how this method should look on the BST, I'd appreciate.

That should do it, but I would still be careful not to abuse clutch for first 100 miles or so.

I'll let the experts chime in on this one if there is a better method to deal with it. Good luck!
im glad we think alike. thats what i did, engine on, clutch on and off a few times until she warmed up, small ride around the carpark, let her sit in neutral with the clutch on and off again for a while longer. go for a longer ride on the street today and see how we go. ill be avoiding muddy hills for a while then.

What was your solution to the leaking carb secondary filter (maybe a month ago)?
will do on the oil level and sniff test too. oil level seemed ok when i checked it after bolting everything back up and with the bike laying on its left side the engine case breather is way up in the air on the right side of the airbox so hopefully no problems there.

as for the carb vent, inmate chill sent me his old stock filter for free (what a legend) and i finally did something with it yesterday; filled it with oiled filter foam and cable tied some oiled pantyhose over the outside of it. i forget whose idea this was originally but thanks for being smarter than me and that same person probably owes Derek from motolab an appology as i dont think ill need to order carb internals anywhere near as often as i have been in the past

and while im at it, thanks to Jammin for his DR video. i stole you idea of cable tieing some spares behind the rear brake master cylinder guard. i no longer have to find space for those spare brake pads

I'm all for reducing carb parts wear. Otherwise I wouldn't caution against slide drilling nor advocate for better vent filtration.

Derek

Poor Vent filtration is I think the reason I wore out my first BST carb. I pulled the Carb apart after several dusty dirt rides and found if full of dirt. I knew it wasn't getting in through the main foam filter. The problem was the poor vent filter. Better filter now and it gets more frequent cleaning and re-oiling.

Wow! That one is really dirty! Mine was not that bad .. not even close.
I'm using the little K&N type filter ... now keeping it well oiled and cleaned
frequently. In super dust I put a bit of "filter skin" over the K&N. Interior of Carb stays pretty clean now.

The boxes that my rotors came in do not have any branding on them. However the appearance of the rotor is rather unique; instead of the outer circumference being smooth, it has a saw-tooth profile and the braking surface contains curved cooling slots. If memory serves, they were about $100 for both which included shipping.

Here's a link to one eBay vendor: LINK

There are others and the prices fluctuate. Do an eBay search on "DR650SE Brake Rotors" and lots of options will be returned. HTH.

Adventure riding helmets & Bike Comparison Table shared

Adventure riders ,
I thought I'd share a table I made recently (prior to me buying my DR650 a month ago or so). Note the lighter weight of the DR650 compared to the others.
As at March 2013


I would like to ask: What helmet best I get for expedition riding???

(I bought a dirt-helmet and goggles, but they're crap for expeditions . Today I tried my mates Shoei 5 year old helmet...soooo much better. I don't at all like the bloody never ending wind that I'm getting from this M2R helmet, horrible over 50km per hour .
