For the belt and suspender type guys allen heads are the way to go for using safety wire. I did mine with the basket on and replaced the stock screws with allen heads because it gave me a more precise feel to torquing them but as mentioned it's the loc-tite that ultimately does the job.

Hey guys, my 1998 dr650 needed a top end rebuild, I found a piston and cylinder off an 06 for the swap, and ordered these piston rings http://www.partzilla.com/parts/detai...140-32E10.html but the piston rings are too small, even though part ills said that those piston rings fit a 96-current. Does anyone know the bore size that I need to order?

Those rings should be correct. P/N 12140-32E10. There is only one ring size from OEM Suzuki.

Something is not right. Either wrong rings in the package or the piston/cylinder you have is from a big bore - something.

The only problem with using stainless screws is that if one should ever come out again, it won't stick to the drain plug magnet.

great point.

Wow.

If I ever do switch them over (I have them loctited now, but with regular blue loctite, not the oil-specific stuff), I'll remember that.

The cylinder sleeve is 99mm bore, will any 99mm piston ring work? I'm having trouble finding one

The '98 DR650 has a bore of 100mm. The standard cylinder is plated (Nikasil or the like) and cannot be bored without replateing. AFAIK Suzuki does not make oversized piston although Wiseco and others do.

Quite a specific question - for Procycle maybe.

Does anyone know if Procycle's Magnetic Sump Plug is built such that the screw-top-end hexagon part is also magnetic? Or is it just the screw-in THREAD part that is magnetic??

I bought the Procycle Magnetic Sump Plug. Got a dealer to fit it on the first service. Now that the magnetic sump plug is in, I went to check to see if the dealer remembered to use my magnetic sump plug and not just use a miscellanous sump plug.

Nothing metallic sticks to the sump plug crew-top-end hexagon part. So I can't tell if they used the magneitc sump plug I provided or if they forgot and just used anyone laying around the shop. Can;t tell until I have a 6000km service done (wiich Ill do myself) - one of the reasons I bought the bike was to work on it myself.

Thanks.

Take the nut off behind the sprocket. Don't try to turn the screws. That is doomed to fail.

The magnet can't be seen from the hex side. It's an insert on the top, inside the engine. I think the hex is 14mm in size and I could be wrong, but I think the original drain plug was larger than 14.

I'll check later. I have 2 PC drain plugs in our bikes.

On the stock '06 carb,

Can anyone tell me what the low speed carb adjuster screw regulates ?

Meaning, does it control fuel metering, or air metering amounts in the low speed circut ?

Fuel. Generally as a rule of thumb, if the screw is located towards the front of the carb it regulates fuel--to the rear--air.
