I'm not sure I understand your complaint. Can you explain further?

Is this sorted now? My first thoughts were clutch adjustment.

Shimming is "acceptable".
A needle that doesn't need shimming is "perfectly acceptable".

What are you running in your DR?

It really doesn't matter HOW you raise a needle , if it's needed. You can even slot a stock needle.

Just had this problem too, I have the gasket ready to go in but spread some RTV Sealant around the gasket to get me through the weekend, and it sealed the leak completely. A good stop gap if you need to buy some time.

No - it is better now that my idle is up to 1550 or so, but I still need to rev while pulling the clutch in to stop most times.

I will re-check clutch adjustment, but it doesn't seem to be dragging/pulling while I have the lever pulled in. Free play at the cable was correct last time I checked.

I am starting to think about opening up the carb for the first time and doing the O-rings just to be safe and checking float and other stuff while I'm at it. Preventative maintenance before my big trip would be smart, I think. I need to get the damn JIS screws replaced anyway in case I have to field strip the carb.

What's the cheapest source for the correct BST O-rings that could cause rich condition if they're going bad?

Speaking of which, I might as well throw out the request for jetting tips. I'm at sea level and I've heard that stock DR650 BST jets (with fuel screw adjustment, snorkel removed and twin air filter) is fine for sea level. Bike seems to run well (other than dying at stop signs).

BUT - in July I'm doing a 4 week tour of the Western United States. Big loop from San Fran, through Eastern Oregon on the OBDR, down the Rockies along the Divide Route and then the Western TAT.
Should I rejet for this trip or will the BST adjust enough to those elevations? I imagine we will be above 3500 ft the entire time, with plenty of riding at 6000 and higher. Any tips or links to previous discussions on this are appreciated.

Mine was doing that. It turned out to be that the choke cable was broken right where it threads into the carb. I put a hand choke on after I found this.

Thanks - I already have the remote choke installed, but I will re-check that it is correctly seated as a next step.

As you mentioned you should get the JIS screws replaced so you can do field work if necessary, buy a new pilot jet to install at that time. Seems to be a frequent problem area.

Edit: Since you're happy with the BST as it is, I'd leave it alone for your trip. The higher altitude you ride, the better the BST works. Several of us have ridden them to 12,000 + foot altitudes.

Interesting! I can only hope to ever have that chance. Might have to re-jet though... I jetted it for 11 to 20 feet above sea level.

By then, though, my perfectly (?) running stock carb with the proCycle needle kit may be worn out and replaced.

But as a short term fix, I love what the ProCycle needle kit did for my bike.

A while ago I had asked a question about the effects of my missing rear lower chain guide (not roller). I finally upgraded/fixed my whole drivetrain ... new chain, sprockets, rear lower chain guide and new cush rubbers. Wow! What a difference. I didn't think my cush rubbers seemed too loose (16K miles) but I actually installed them a few miles after the new chain and sprockets, and they made a noticeable difference. I had to use some tire lube to help get the sprocket carrier to fit back in the hub with the new rubbers, so they're definitely a tighter fit.

I think maintaining the drivetrain goes a long way in keeping these thumpers smooth. I don't really notice any improvement with new chains on my WeeStrom or Ducati, and both have original cush rubbers after 35-45K miles on each bike.
