I have the rear and side racks too. Really like them. I wonder if the guards will get in the way of changing the oil filter.

It's simple enough to try a 150. I was surprised when I tried a smaller MJ, the improvement was much more than I expected (but I live and ride at 6000 foot + altitude).

Finding that the fuel enrichment cable was almost seized has given other owners serious headaches. If it runs well with the lower needle, you'll know the jetting is too rich.

So where is Midgard and what is the altitude? It will help figure out why you have the damn surge.

Last but not least the valves were a bit tight so I adjusted them today. .08 and .17 on the nose.

She has 8100 miles on it now, 7940 when I purchased her last friday.

Thank you to all who replied.

Any differences between the 2011, 2012, or 2013 models other than colors or graphics?
None. Something about getting it pretty well right the first time, back in 1996.

I am around 3200'. Rapid city SD. Midgard is a really old way of saying earth.
Also it surges at idle, des not matter where I have it adjusted. BTW what is factory on it. I have seen everywhere from 1.25 to 2.5 turns out. Surges everywhere below 1/4 throttle.

You'll get it right, no worries!
Once you get new plugs in there and a smaller main jet it may clear up. I'm sure the stuck choke had a bad influence. If not ...?

Check for air or vacuum leaks. Pull Carb top, make sure rubber diaphragm is OK, not pinched or holed. Go as lean as you can on pilot fuel screw. Mine is set about 1 turn out.

Flush float bowl and check fuel inlet filter and petcock filter.

Have fun, good luck. Love the Black Hills. I spent a month in and around Deadwood in late 80's. Loved it.

Many years ago, the standard answer was 1-1/2 turns and it worked for me for years. But now I have the extended idle fuel screw I decided to try 1-1/4, thinking at my altitude it would have to work better. Wrong

Crap, I just lost my answer.

Short version: on today's ride I went richer on the idle fuel screw, from 1-1/4 to 1-1/2. It wouldn't idle without help until I went that 1/4 turn richer and now it idles just like when it was a puppy? (back to 1-1/2 turns) (6000+ feet) with the stock 42.5 pilot jet. So..................1-1/2 turns...................maybe

How did you get that inlet filter to levitate like that? I had to use needle nose pliers.

Wicked I need advice on locating a Fuzeblock on my new DR650

Although the owner/builder lives in Japan, I have found shipping to be not only reasonable but quick. I've used his products on my GS1200 and my previous DR. He does quality work and his website is very informative.
I purchased a new 2012 in March 2013 for my own birthday present!!! I'm loving the bike except for the off idle lean sputter. I haven't yet started to tackle that. It's fine at idle and fine in the upper 15/16ths of the throttle....just the first little bit it runs way lean.... PS...don't really want to do a full airbox, jetkit, kinda deal...I just want that tiny off idle lean spot fixed. The rest is fine.

So anyway, after some searching I decided to go with the Fuzeblock FZ1. Now I'm struggling to find a good place to locate it. Anyone got pictures of their setup?

I found on mine, that remains untouched, it got better after about 1,200 miles and continues with more miles. But maybe it just doesn't bother me anymore. I just don't spend much time with the throttle right off idle.

I have 1050 miles and it hasn't changed. Which carb circuit is responsible for the "barely off idle"? Slide needle? I'm thinking idle jet and main jet are fine...help!

And pics of Fuzeblock mountings and dash pics would be cool too. Thanks

Barely off idle is the idle fuel screw. Instructions thanks to Jessepitt.
