I understand the clutch will slip before you reach torque when trying to lock the rear wheel.

I just dont wanna bugger up the primary gears by wedgeing any old thing in there.
stick the piston pin into the top end of the connecting rod, pass the biggest allen key you can fit through the centre of the pin, put two small pieces of wood (or steel plate is better) between the engine block and both ends of the allen key, rotate the crank in the right direction until the allen key sits on the wood and then tighten away. this is assuming the head is already off the engine

Something like this, but this one won't work; our gears are helical cut.

A beer and a bacon sammich would be nice.

3 or 4 mm thick does the job, as does a piece of rag. Don't over think it. The MP tool is nice, but not needed, and yes, as stated, for straight cut gears.

The spoke thing works too, but you MUST get the stop at the nipple tight against the rim so its only in shear and no bending, and assumes an operating clutch.

better look

I bought my bike with a Sargent with the welt. I look at it and think that ain't right but never notice it riding, even when I try. Guess I'll have to drop my drawers after a ride and see if it leaves a welt. I've contemplated putting a sheepskin cover on for longer rides. The flatness of the Sargent makes me think a little loft on top might make it better conform to my irregularness. I put the stock seat on once for a test. That really made me appreciate the Sargent.

Is it really that noticeable?!
PS - can anyone explain why my photobucket inserts 2 copies of the same image when I paste in the link?

Has anyone ever fitted a different gas tank to the dr650. I don't really like the dorky metal tank and I really don't like the look of the over sized tanks. I'm wondering if its possible to mount a mx style tank like a drz tank or something, I like the look of the fairings and I think it would look great.
