That's a really clean looking Djebel, we need to get you out into the mountains/trails around here to get that thing respectably dirty

Install is straight forward, all you need is the boot (connecting b/w the back of the carb and the airbox) from the pumper carb model.
And a slight tweak to the throttle cable bracket to prevent it from increasing the rpms at full right lock.
Can you order that boot OEM? Or do I need to be looking for a parts bike somewhere?

That looks like a good time.

What kind of pannier racks do you have on the rear? Does the off-the-shelf rack for another model fit on the DR250?

I need a new front tire. Kenda K270's are on both front and rear right now. I was thinking of just putting another K270 on, or possibly a Shinko 700 Series. Maybe a TKC80, but that is more expensive.

You guys from the Kanto area know where is a good spot to pick up a tire? I'd like to get tire changing tools as well, so that I can do it myself. The auto hobby shop on base has compressed air and room to work.

I found stuff on Amazon.co.jp, but didnt know if there was a store I could walk into that was better.

I am a noob, so I dont even know if I need tubes or not.

Have them on mine as well. This Ukraine company makes them, about $215 plus reasonable shipping. You have to email the guy, his response was spotty but he did come through. Btw, that's my bike on his page.

There is a great shop in Tokyo called Speedstar with very good prices for Japan, was just there on Sunday. James and I are both running Michelin T63s.
http://speedstar.jp/tire/michelin/offroad/trail.html. They can check your tubes and let you know if they think they should be replaced. I'm running heavy duty ones to make them more puncture resistant.

The T63 are great knobies, well recommended.
I'm puzzled as to why you'd buy anything domestically however, since you have SOFA status and access to the Base shops

Buy stuff directly from the good 'ol USA

The Ukrainian vendor was ok in the end, our order happened to coincide with the Soccer games, and the Euro's go nuts over that thing so he was MIA for a few weeks...
The racks are great, well designed and made. I'd get the helmet hangers he sells at a discount if you order the rack as those are very handy.

TDRally, previously mentioned that he has successfully run a 46T rear sprocket with the OEM chain guard.
I can confirm that the following combination works ok:
- Front Sprocket: 12T
- Rear Sprocket: 49T
- Chain: 53 link

This combination works without any mods required. Can't wait to see how this combo works out on the trails, combined with the TM33 pumper carb and the full uncorking per the published procedures.

The T63s are $136 at motorcycle superstore, then he'd have to wait for them and then find a shop here to fit them. Doesn't seem like much savings for the extra hassle.

Agreed on the tires, but for EVERYTHING ELSE you just can't beat the US, when you only pay domestic shipping.

I tried that. They won't ship tires or oversized items to APO/FPO. I did order some other stuff successfully though.
