But you said you couldn't locate any? SBG is correct, they are still available from Suzuki. I bought a complete set for my '91 two years ago. If you find some used ones on Ebay the price wont be that much cheaper than new and you'll get dried out, shrunken hard ones instead of new rubber.

If you don't want to spend money then stuff some inner tube in there as it will help a little. But expect it to wear out very quickly, probably will need to add more with eah tire change.

Did some more investigating and.dealer can order for $63. Now I gotta locate a carb and airbox mod. PO installed a K&N and she sputters at all RPM's. Also doing the stop light stalls so I know its not dialed in. The Heidenau K60's (my first time using) did well today in storm. Wish my boots performed as well as tires did...

You need a new carb? You could probably just get new o rings, check the boots for cracks, and see if a dynojet kit was installed but never adjusted properly. I have a K&N on mine, and from I've heard, if you get too much air, the low end might need fuel/air screw adjusted, and on the stock carb, a brass plug will still be seen and needs to be removed.

I'm running the dynojet kit because I have a Jardine pipe that is pretty open and very loud despite the outlet not being too huge.

I also run my bike with no snorkel or side cover on the airbox. I believe dynojet said to run a 160 main, but it totally killed the top end and would choke the engine out at high rpm's. I think I dropped to a 155 or 152.5 main, but these are dynojet's mains, not Mikuni, so the numbers are different between brands.

My issue right now is idle. Because I have the bike so open, I need to use a richer pilot jet, or so I believe that is the cure because my air/fuel can not be adjusted properly. I have decent idle, but it is not perfect.

Get rid of the Big Stinking Turd and install a Keihin pumper. No surging, popping, coughing, farting, hesitating. Just twist the throttle and hang on

howdy folks!

sup boys/gals. Im new to this thread, and im sure before to long, my brother will be in as well to post. Yesterday my brother picked up a 93 DR650S (or is it RS?) it doenst have the big front fairing like the RSE and is kick only. It has 3260 miles on it and is in pretty darn good shape. Bought it from consignment off a guy for 1200 beans! my brother is second owner. Original owner bought it from dealer with 3 miles on it. ANyhow, as you can see in the only picture that we have so far, bout an hour into parking in my garage, we tore that mother down! replaced rear brake master cylinder (it was shot and i had a spare from my 93 DR350S) replaced all brake fluids front and rear, tore apart carb and cleaned out the stuff that had gotten stick in top half near diaphragm, free'd up choke cable, cleand out air box that was packed with junk from a mouse, removed top chain roller, degreased everything, removed some other useless stuff and started looking up parts... well...ordering a new air filter today, no big deal... What about carb kit guys? I need to do some searching still, but i need to figure out WHAT carb kit is gonna fit this CV thats on it? when i search carb kit, everything that comes up with from 96 to present? So....can anyone point me in right direction here folks?

i also need to ordre him a manual for it, and then figure out proper procedure for changing oil. I know on my 350, there is a screen and some other different tricks to proper oil changes.

Any help at all would be great guys, as the 650 is new to me and him both. Im the mechanic of the family and have a good knowlede of DR350's but the 650 is a whole new beast to me. Thanks in advance, and cant wait to hear back!

Check here for the jet kit:

Here is a link for the pre-96 models manual:
http://mxrob.com/DR650%20Service%20Manual(early).pdf

and the bible for the BST-40 (pretty much the same for the DR's)

Thank you sir! I found the DRriders forum via this thread. been checkin it out pretty hard. Got bike all together and running. waitin on new air filter to arrive. bike fires up and purrs just like my 350! man i love these bikes! haha. Its a shame parts are tricky to find for these bikes, i figured for sure they would be just as popular as the new ones but it seems they arent?

You are welcome!
By the way it was a awesome find with such low mileage.
As for the oil change make sure it is warm/hot before draining the old oil; I usually remove the oil strainer cap to drain all the oil and clean the cap as debris accumulate there and prevent all oil to drain. It will reveal the strainer (screen) that I usually clean ever other oil change.
Make sure the valves are adjusted and all chains snug and this bike will last.
I recently got a twin air filter, removed the snorkel on the top of the air box, drilled the larger hole on the slider and added the Procycle extended fuel screw (mixture) adjusted to 1 1/4 out and the difference for me was brutal curing the hesitation on acceleration, hard startups when cold and throttle response.



As for parts, I used recently used http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/ as they store OEM parts and have a reasonable shipping charges. Time to time you can find new old stock on fleabay. Just keep on the watch. (sorry; I'm stating the obvious)

Yah i looked at parts diagram to see if there was any screens to be cleaned and i spotted it in the parts fiche. Sadly didnt have an oring around to fit it so i didnt tear it off. Next change we will though FOR SURE! the 350's have an "in frame" screen that comes from sump upto tank that needs cleaned or checked every or every other change. So my bro has a list of orings i want him to buy. haha. not to mention, he's gonna get a few air filters lined up so he got spares n such. ill have to read manual and find out how to adjust the balance chain? (this the timing chain they're referring to?) valves will need done soon as well but we'll give em some time to warm up and wear in a little more before i do that. Speaking of valves, mine's due for an adjustment too so maybe ill have a valve adjusting party at my house. bahaha. i pulled snorkel outta this bike soon as i took seat off. lol ill let him ride it around stock and make sure he wants to keep it before i make him dump money into exhaust and air box mods n stuff. When i do that, ill call jesse and give him some of my money for parts. haha.

Hey, on the pre 96's, is the countershaft seal retainer a MUST as it is on the post 96?

They are factory fitted. My 90 model has one, so I presume 91 - 95 have them as well
