I've got a FMF PB header, Megacycle midpipe and GSXR 041 can with FMF spark arrestor. Quiet, efficient and durable with the bash plate in front of the header.

Standard header pipe with the weld ground down and a TK exhaust with TK mid-pipe. No exhaust packing required and a quality Australian made product .

FMF look nice, sound nice but have read reports over the last few months about manufacturing issues where the rear-end blows out due to dodgy riverts .

Full Staintune for lighter weight than stock and nice sound.
Bung in for stealth when accidentally somewhere I shouldn't be.

Mitas E07 - llegal tread

(pic copied from the net)

I would like to know how far I can wear the E07's before they becom illegal.

They have the centre tread wear indicator but once it gets to this, does that mean I have to buy a new one? There is all the other tread to use and seems like a waste of a tyre.

any thoughts.

Dan,

I always go beyond the centre ridge, l spoke to the guys at Wagga bike tyres about this and they assured me the wear markers are to the left & right of this centre ridge about every 1/4 of the way around the tyre.

To the centre ridge, you get about 5k out of the tyre, l get about 15k then the tyre is farked.

mystery rattle in DR engine.

I recently had a couple of other DR riders comment about my rattly engine, so l thought l'd strip it down and check things out.

2008 DR650, 50,000km, High-Compression piston fitted 20k ago, normally run 98oct fuel.

I have always thought it to be a little more rattly since installing the H/C piston, so l have checked the following,

Valve clearances are within spec,
Bashplate removed to eliminate this as the problem,
Exhaust bolts were tight,
Cam chain tensioner operating correctly, plenty of tension on chain,
Clutch plates & springs are all within spec and no damage (l heard damaged plates will cause quite a rattle),
NSU screws still there and tight,
Piston cudgen pin still tight and circlips intact,
Piston top and cylinder head (valve bases) had a fair bit of carbon build up, so this has been cleaned off, thanks to crc gasket remover,
Piston rings look like new, and cyl bore looks great.
Cam chain looks okay, but l might replace it as a precautionary measure to get another 50k.

Any other thoughts on what else to look for?

Bike still runs great, and l plan to get 100k out of it, before l am to buggered to ride anymore.

Cheers
Dobbo
