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.

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

+1 Also, they were most likely installed with thread locker. A bit of heat directly on the nut from a propane torch usually helps.

I've never seen a 99mm piston or heard of a motor made to run with a 99mm bore. But no, any old rings will not work. There are other critical dimensions other than the bore size. They have to be accurate in width and thickness. Some rings are tapered, some are flat.

It sounds like maybe this cylinder has been re-sleeved and then never bored to fit the piston.

The magnet is not visible unless you remove the drain plug.

Upon entry into going through the stock carb on my '06, I think somebody has been in here before.

Can anybody confirm the stock size main jet in a bone stock carb ? What about a stock pilot jet size ?

Are all the rubber O rings and bowl gasket available direct and seperate from Suzuki ?

And who would be a good OEM Suzuki parts mailorder place to the midwest ?

While I am at it, anybody know the Suzuki parts number for the counter seal keeper on the new bikes ?

Sorry for the questions, but I just got the bike and have no service manual, and there is no Suzuki dealer anywhere near me at all.

If I could "view" a service manual and parts manual on line that would help alot. ( anybody know, a PM would be great. Dont wanna violate the rules ??)
