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?

I know the ID for the fuel line is 5/16"

Anyone know the ID of the vacuum line?

Thanks in advance.

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.

Thanks very much !

I havnt opened it up yet and didnt know they were helical cut. Yep, that complicates things a bit.

So just use a nice shop rag and fold it up some and feed it into the gears while turning the crank till the primary binds up to torque the nut ?

Any opinions on weather to use blue locktight ?

The board I wedged into my rear wheel held all the way to the torque spec. The torque wrench clicked at the exact moment I heard the spoke break.

The spoke nipple was what really broke. Thankfully, an inmate here sent me a replacement. I could only buy a full set for $65.

Shift it into fifth before you remove the clutch cover, put a board in the spokes and I suspect you'll be ok. YMMV!
"Put a board in the spokes"
How did you think of that and why? Putting all the torque into one spoke seems counter productive as you proved.
Putting a rag or something soft between the primary gears works just fine.

You dont sit on the welts,if you did nobody would be selling or buying them. They go around the edge of the seat area and arent a big deal,but I guess arent necessary either. Ive always had welts on Corbin seats on streetbikes and have never once noticed them.

Quick question, whats the true actual capacity of the stock DR fuel tank ?

And, what a real world distance you can get outta reserve if you ride gentle trying to milk the most MPG outta the reserve portion ?
