Well, yes. Sort of. Ish.

But if that were the case then they wouldn't sell a 2 stroke and 4 stroke version.

Bikes that run there trigger off the cam need a four stroke one and bikes that run the trigger off the flywheel use a two stroke one.

Wobbly Head

The speedo. on my DR has been quite wobbly for some time, it dances around and shakes as you go along, I reckon there's about 8-10mm movement in it. It's annoying and I figured it probably doesn't do the instrument any favours being shaken like that. I was going past the Suzuki dealer in Queanbeyan yesterday so I picked up some new mounting grommets thinking that was obviously the problem.

Fitted the new grommets this morning, thinking this will fix it, it was heaps better but there was still a little slop, seems the groove around the middle of the grommet is slightly wider than the thickness of the mounting bracket and when the mounting nuts bottom out on the thread there's no pressure on the grommets, after a few thousand k's. I think it would have been back to the way it was. i disassembled it again, I got three washers 6mm ID about 1.5mm thick and placed them on the three spigots under the speedo put all back together, tightened the nuts and "hey presto" no more slop. There's just enough pre load to stop the grommets moving in their holes but not enough to make the mounting "firm" and prevent vibration damping. A small thing I know, but a virtually free fix to a small annoyance.

Nice attention to detail, seems to be a lost gene anymore.

5th Gear noise

I've just taken my DR out for a spin after loading it up for next weekend and in fifth gear it makes a hell of a noise. I didnt notice it before it was loaded but I am not sure if I hit fifth on my road when it had no load. The noise is only when power is applied, there is no noise evident on overrun but the slightest bit of throttle and it makes the noise. At any speed at any revs, just in fifth.
Has anyone had a similar problem?

Can you describe the noise?
Gear whine?
A rattle?
Three hamsters having an orgy instead of running in the wheel to provide power?

Have you ever heard that noise the DR starter makes? It's a fairly common noise caused by a dry bushing. Its like that only quite a bit louder and you can kinda feel it right through the bike. Dunno bout the hamters though

Unpack it and ride it the exact same.
See if its the same.
If it only happens loaded up, that will help narrow it down.
