I need a new saddle. period. Ive covered it with the atv pad and sheepskin and still its not really working. Anyone recover their oem seat pan or do the aftermarket thing? I tried a Saddleman seat on an Aprilia and it was perfect. I want that on my Dr!

I just picked up a 1993 DR650 for a ....cheap price (I hope). It has 12k miles. The problem is a loud...very loud top end chatter. I don't mean like a little valve chatter. This is like someone inside with hammer wanting to get out chatter. But it is upper , head, valves, cam?
The bike still runs good and has all the power it should have, but damn that sound!
I plan to tear into it, but anyone have any ideas?

Have you taken the valve cover off yet to inspect anything?

I don't know...but this one is usually a bit cheaper than the dealer but unless you're ordering lots of stuff the shipping cancels that out.

I still have not had time to look at the bike but I just cant stop thinking about it.
The Decompression cable is broken as well as the shaft spring. What could that inpack on the rocker arms?

I've had that cable break before and didn't notice any extra noise.....but the spring was still intact so I guess it could be possible that mechanism is flopping back and forth in there making the noise?

Humm, no pm in my box.
I guess both and I can leave the decals on. But if someone needs the right, I only really need a Left.

As if I expected less.....

http://i285.photobucket.com/albums/l...r650rocker.jpg

The cam journals in the cover are toast too.
I know the piston has been slapping the intake valves and maybe the exhaust too. Not sure, but maybe oil paths may be blocked too.
This is my plan.
Blow air into the oil paths then dran oil, fill and repeat. Then replace the cam, rockers and valve cover. Ride it till a good deal on a post 96 dr650 comes along and sell as is with list of repairs or part it out.
Any other ideas? I don't think it is worth a total rebuild and I have never opened up a motorcycle motor.

So, I guess I need some head.....parts if anyone has some?:0
