speaking of the first page, since 800rider (mcmad) got himself banned or maybe excommunicated might be a better term in this case, we no longer have a means of updating the info that is there. i know i would like a quick reference list to later additions such as Robs airfilter setups, Ladders informative tech advice as well as many others valuable contributions.
what we need is for someone else to take over page 1 so as to have the ability to continually update page 1. do we have any mods amongst us who may be able to assist?
i would be willing to take on the job if it is possible. i'm not getting rid of my Big anytime soon and i don't intend on getting banned

CDI Unit help!!!

Hello all,
Apparently my starting problems are due to a faulty CDI unit - does any one know where I can get one, where I can get mine repaired, or have a working one for sale?
DR800 SR43A
The generator has returned from being re-wound but now there is still no spark and the CDI is to blame I'm told...
All help greatly appreciated.
Cheers,
Pete

Simon ,I have a treat for you to look at sitting on my bench, I have a 150mm x 115 dia filter that fits inside the 41/42 airbox with a seperate course inner filter that acts as a pre filter, this pre filter can be removed from the side without removing the tank.
Just where the other filter mods are I don,t know .

Be certain to check front fork travel to be sure that the front tire/fender doesn't hit the frame downtube/crashbars/bottom of triple clamps on full compression.

Others here (Bluesman I think) needed to have the travel limited internally to keep bad things from happening on hitting really large bumps.

I would also check to see whether the fork length, wheel rolling radius and triple clamp offset will give a reasonable trail number.

Pete, I ended up getting one from Hessler Motorsport, they are as rare as rocking horse droppings in the UK.

Simon the other blokes from Sydney were going to camp and just call in here after the Bridle Track section and then I was going to show them some dirt over Mt Horrible and in the scrub across to Sunny Cnr.
Then I was going to do a loop to the Turon and back up Red Hill Rd.
No pic,s at the moment as it will have a patent on it .
You can come and have a look if you want .

Forgot to mention PV moto the bloke who was organising the ride from the big smoke has sold his 990 and won,t have a bike in time for the ride, but others may go we will just have to wait and see, could all be a piss in wind thing.
He has the thread on Ozz ADV.

Shock discussion among those I ride with is like talking about oil. So I'd like to hear from those who have one of these. If you have a new shock or fixed yours...tell me what you did and why you chose it?

And..is the original shock rebuildable?

Thanks everyone.

Puddle, here,s my two bobs worth,
I have used in the past a good standard shock with a standard spring with the preload wound down to the max and put a new bottom bearing in which was about 65 bucks and the result was well a better ride height and the result, well I would say fair.
I then tried a heavier spring with the same shock and sort of thought a bit better but to much rebound.
I then went to a slightly heavier spring and heavier in the front too and thought not to bad, this is what is in my blue bike and is used on tar and dirt roads no real bumpy stuff or jumping so happy with this.
On my yellow bike which is used for easy and hard trails and jumping I bought a Wilbers 641 shock and there recommended front springs and Ricor intiminators, and Hessler HRT fork brace, result perfect.
On my orange bike only for tar riding and trips away fully loaded with luggage I use heavier front springs and rear spring with standard shock and front fork brace, found this set up being loaded good for the tar and twisties.
On my red bike a total stock set up and is well you know stuffed compared to the others.
On my motard on the rear is a Wilbers 641 beautifull these are great, front is KTM and only just .
So the answer for the best is WILBERS front and back and no stuffing arround.
Others have used different brands and are happy with there set up , but the above is what I have done .
And just fitted a 641 wilbers and front springs non progressive which were recommended with intiminators were already in with a super brace from procycle on my DR 650, only had a small test ride today on the tar looking for bumps and it smooth as.
