Oh and welcome back Vil, i always enjoyed your posts here and on the capo forum, your mods are always worth reading.
Id imagine something a lot of lads on ere would buy is something sturdier than the standard fork brace thats cheap and effective.

my BIG died yesterday: arrived at friends home when idling it stopped runnning. i have at least 7lt in the tank (I'm in reservoir from yesterday)
to me looks like doesn't arrive fuel to the carbs or no spark.
someone has any ideas?

in 10 days in theory I leave for a 2000Km trip trough Italy

I have found a ninja 250's (new model) master cylinder at 12.7mm bore to be a much better pairing. Way more power but enough feel to get away with light offroading.
Infact HE sell a nice looking mastercylinder for this kit which is 12mm. Its actually quite cheap too at 65 euro iirc. I will be ordering one next week as im mostly on road so more power isint an issue for me.;
Thanks a lot for the info.
i will indeed order it with the mastercylinder, braided steel lines that fit the caliper and the mastercylinder and Renthal bars.

Waiting for him to respond to emals..

Heres what id do, might not be the best advice but should eliminate the fuel supply possibilities as the issue...

Id set an independant supply of fresh juice direct to the carbs. So remove the tanks and have your auxillary fuel tank (bottle cut in half etc) plumbed into the same line as the line with the fuel filter. The filter might be blocked so just incase remove it.
You may be able to set this up without removing the tanks but bestto drain them first.
Does it start now?

Good advice to check the fuel side.

To check the spark side, use a spare plug or pull one of the plugs, Hold it to ground while you crank engine and visually confirm spark or no spark.

If no spark, start with the simple things first. Check battery connections, all grounds/earths. Then check side stand switch, clutch switch, kill switch on the right bar end and particularly the bottom of the ignition switch as wires here have been known to break off their solder connections.

The side stand switch is fairly notorious on all bikes for failing since it's rather out in the elements. I generally disable mine on all my bikes since it's a source of frustration off-road.

Let us know how you get on.

Ok, in theory if even only one of those switches doesn't work the engine wouldn't even crank.
Is it right??? The electric cicuit seems to work...headlight, taillight, stop...everything fine!!!

quite common on the SR41, mine failed on a weekend away... i went over everything at the camp site and couldnt find a thing, the only way it would run was with a push start and no lights what so ever wasnt till i got home and a mate said to look there and after some back yard soldering she was good to go. My mate had the same thing except all that was affected was just starting the old girl.
I think there were 5 wires solderd and it only takes one to come loose to cause head aches.

well i hope it's something as simple as that Geo-Nemesis

another nuisance with mine was a loose electrical connection on the manual decomp, worth a look maybe.
i always hit the simple stuff before pulling fairing etc off

Hi everyone, I went on a trip last week for 8 days into a neighboring state called South Australia with my mate Denis , we trailerd the 2 DR/ 650,s to Broken Hill 934klm,s away before we could get on and ride them.
We still had to ride to Yunta which was another 198 klm,s on the black stuff before hitting the dirt.
Having a rest,

Soon we were in Yunta its really only a small place and mainly a truck stop , we turned and headed for the Flinders Ranges
Not to far out on this road we came across some old mine ruins, I love the under ground chimney leading to the stack chimney.

Thanks Robmoto! For me, the rear brake master cylinder was for installation on heavy! The others repair was not difficult. Little imagination and a lot of work! :)

We headed back towards the main dirt road to Arkaroola and headed roughly north about 40 k,s and turned left on a minor road towards Hawker and Copley, the road track in some parts went through and up the mainly dry river beds in places.
