Which crash bar is that? I searched back a few pages and don't see it.

I was brand new to motorcycles 3 years ago and never would have learned enough to feel confident about taking off on a trip like this without the knowledge and help provided by folks here on this thread. We all know the usual suspects. Keep up the good work - it is much appreciated.
Buena suerte ! The blue line up the west coast is the path rarely traveled. It will certainly be challenging.

Please do keep a ride report. I look forward to following along. Jammin' Jay took the purple line down last year, so he should be a great source for advice.

I'm guessing that's a NSFW site for train enthusiasts?

That's what I thought.

Unfortunately, your suggestion was incorrect.

That means there shouldn't be any worn out parts.

I guess what I was hoping by getting a TM40 was a straightforward install (unlike the FCR) and out of the box performance increase.
I'm sure the installation would be straight-forward for both a TM and an FCR. It's what comes afterwards that I'm concerned with, that is the tuning and addressing of possible detonation issues, especially without access to a 5-gas EGA equipped brake dyno (or with knock sensing/cylinder pressure logging in place of NOx).
Quote:
By verifying that there aren't issues with increased cylinder filling before buying a TM or FCR, would that come from experimentation with jetting on the BST?
Assuming that I understand the question, a TM or an FCR will definitely increase cylinder filling, especially through the mid-range of throttle openings. That, and the quicker response (compared to a CV carb) are the main reasons for switching (better cylinder filling equals more HP). Unless you tuned on an 5-gas EGA equipped brake dyno (or with knock sensing/cylinder pressure logging in place of NOx), and you found hot spots that could not be fixed with jetting during the process, tuning the BST properly would not tell you anything with regard to whether the increased cylinder filling a TM or FCR provide would result in detonation problems.
Quote:
I notice most people seem to play with needle height, and main jet... but what about the pilot jet. Shouldn't that be one of the first to change with increased breathing?
If you're referring to removing the snorkel and/or modifying the airbox, those do don't much, if anything, to improve air flow at very small to small throttle openings (during those conditions, the restriction is at the throttle blade, rather than at the airbox inlet.
Quote:
Thanks Derek. Your wisdom is much appreciated, although it makes a relative novice like me nervous about making any changes at all!
You should be able to improve the BST without too much trouble.

Regards,

Derek

Considering the purchase of a 1999 DR650SE with serial number indicating it has the case breaking non-slip starter clutch torque limiter. If I buy it will have to be fitted with upgraded parts. I'm ok with wrenching but is this an OEM Suzuki part? Where can the starter clutch torque limiter be purchased? Saw a "kit" for $225 at one vendor, then read of another (no source given) for $165.
Thanks

Honkey Cat,

I currently own a 2012 box stock DR650SE with 3200 miles on the odometer. According to N.A.D.A. high retail is $4815 and low retail is $3600. When you add up all the stuff he bought it's right around $1000. Assuming you want all of that, it might not be too bad a deal.
