Clutch Help

I have a 91DR650 and the problem is that when its cold the clutch is tight and just as it should be but as i ride and it warms up the clutch lever starts to get really loose and i have to adjust it. When it cools it goes right back to being tight again. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks.

Yeah, try lubing the cable from the bottom end and if it smooths out, it just might be the cable. It's cheap insurance to keep you from getting stranded to either replace it or have an extra one around. Check for kinks as well.

Vapor computer mount

Does anyone have pics of their Vapor mounted. Just curious to see what mount actually works well with the computer and dashboard that they sell. Or for that matter, did you make your own dash?

I've been wanting to redesign the control area for a gps/computer dash while attempting not to make the whole handlebar area look like a 747 cockpit. And yes, modernize the huge black box. I also got pulled over the other day and was told that the gps currently mounted in the mirror mount should have a mirror in it. (WA state law says two mirrors for highway use) I didn't like the gps mount anyway because it vibrated too much, but there isn't enough room on the handlebars to mount anything else. It needs some organization.

I've been lucky with the clutch so far, knock wood. How did your gsxr exhaust project go?

It went well, sound amazing. but the Knobbi tire rubs when bottomed out. I put on a 09 stock KLR shock, it feels great and has dampening.

A few pictures from this weekend!


Took a ride in my old home town!

Tested my new helmet and neckbrace as well!

Parked the ol' gal on a bridge for some posing!

When done riding I ripped these of the bike.. Time for some sandblasting and then off to the powder coater! Black ;)

Are you sure the rubber fittings are still there? It shouldn't be completely still when pushed, but not wobbly either.

I'm on my 3rd set of bushings that are used where it bolts to the frame, the tank keeps wearing through them because it shakes so bad, it even cracked around there and had to get it welded. I put new bigger cushions on the part the tank sits on too and its still seems too loose.

i got the progressive springs recently, they aren't great for off road but they are a huge step from factory.
