You will also need the collars, thrust washers and gasket.

Hey guys i got a 06 dr650 last week so just joined the club. First dual sport too.

There is a long range acerbis tank with it, and there is a rubber tube coming out of it.
1) Dont see any vent attached to it. Do i need one? I've read that some tanks have on built into the tap

2) Should I just slip it into the steering tube/column/head? There is a cap I can take off but I dont think the previous owner did.. Also, wouldnt a lot of dirt get into it?

Wonder if there is anything that the tube should go into. Cheers

First off - welcome and congrats. The gas tank needs a vent and without pictures, I'm guessing a bit here. If it has a "cap" I'm thinking it might be something like THIS which works well. If it's an open tube, yeah, tuck it out of the way. I guess dirt could get in and you could put a small filter on it if you're concerned. I run an open tube and don't filter the incoming air - never had a problem related to that.

Need some kind of one way vent so when it takes a nap it won't be spilling fuel all over the place.

Is it bad to drive my bike the way it is? With the fork alignment off? What damage can be done? Just until I get it fixed.

If you know the fork alignment is off then why not get it set properly?
It's not that difficult to do and then you don't have to worry about the damage. Read through this post and you will find a comment regarding this.

I have the right socket sets but the 32mm is a 1/2in. The only wrench I have is a 3/8. So till I get that I might have to drive it.

Hey, welcome

The vent is in the cap, the hose directs the few drops that might escape away from your privates. Just remove the cap from your steering head and stick it in there, dirt and leakage won't be a problem. I've been doing that for decades on bikes with a hose type vent. You don't need one of those one way vent caps.

Unless you're hiding from the FBI, you could fill in your profile location: state or country.
