Suzuki doesn't sell that part separately, you have to buy the whole starter. Does anyone have a source for brushes? There must be another similar starter from Japan that is the same.
Hey Rusty Rocket, should be about 4 weeks for me to get them done. its the perfect time to do your cct gasket when you install this as you have to remove it anyway.

on the brushes theres a company called arrowhead electrical that makes a rebuild kit, your dealer can order it from tucker rocky dist and their part number is 49-5744. its a very complete kit that retails for $40. Procycle also has the starter rebuild kit, might be worthwhile to have it at the same time as the cap.

have a good weekend man!

Thanks for those tidbits of info. I know that that starter is used on quite a few other models and probably other brands as well. I figured there had to be someone capitalizing on the fact that Suzuki isn't making parts available. I should've known that Pro-Cycle would be there. I just didn't feel like looking if I could easily get the answer by asking.
Thanks

Anytime you change the flow of the intake or exhaust or both you need to balance your carb to match. Actually, the K&N filter does flow more air, so you have modified your airbox.

K&N would like to hear from you.

There is no special requirement after fitting a K&N High Flow Filter.

There is a business card to keep with your vehicle. It reads:

The installation of reusable products may be discouraged by some service providers who are misinformed or prefer the repeat business of selling disposable air filters. We will be pleased to answer any of their questions directly.

Your K&N replacement air filter or intake system is backed by one of the industry's best warranties. We also pledge you will never be taken advantage of by a service provider denying a warranty repair based on the presence of a K&N product.

PLEASE PHONE K&N DIRECT FOR FREE @ 1-800-858-3333
OR KNFILTERS.COM

It was, I was still searching for a dyno that was capable of CO tracing. I had no luck finding anything close by.

I need to fix my CCT gasket as well. But, it can wait a month while Kev whips these up. I would prefer to fix the starter permanently, if possible. Looks like I'll have time source a starter rebuild kit, too. Might as well as long as you're in there and have everything apart.

That sounds good to me, if you're starting a list, put me down for one.

HID headlight cheap!

Hey guys, sorry if this seems spammy, but I'd really like to stop dragging this around with me...

Used HID headlight kit $30 OBO over on the flea market!

This-a-way...

In some applications K&N filters flow more than stock and in some they don't.

In the ones that they do, there being "no special requirement" is nice to say, but more flow means leaner mixture, which is great if the mixture was rich beforehand, less great if it was perfect before (unless you re-jet), and not so great at all if it was already too lean before (unless you re-jet).

In the ones that don't, I can personally attest to K&N making arrangements to get the filter back in their hands and refunding the purchase price.

Derek

EZ to jump on the list with an email to Kevin on Warp9's site, too. He's quick to respond and gave me the part numbers on the DR levers as well as an updated price. I'll wait 'til the starter cap is ready and get an order in.

I haven't treated the DR to some new stuff in a while.

Finally bit the bullet and bought a CD "Mojave"shock

I have a 05 DR that I have been running mostly stock. I have taken it to places where it shouldn't have been, or so people say, and my main complain has been the suspension. So, after 3 years of proud ownership, I installed emulators on the front and ordered the Mojave. It should be in my hands in about about a week. I'll be testing it on a trip to Sierra Madre Occidental, Mexico, in two weeks. Since I did not find a review of the Mojave on this thread, I will provide my input.

I for one, can't imagine ever putting my DR back to stock. The FCR works very nicely, smoothing out the bottom end and even the DJ kit was a vast improvement over stock. Tune them properly people!
