While you're doing the NSU screws would be a good time to do the "T Mod" too, while you're in a partying mood.
Would you be in a supervision mood at some point?

Sure, I could be persuaded...

You'd want to be sure to have spares like a clutch cover gasket and crush washers for the oil line before dismantling anything. I managed to re-use the gaskets on both of mine but you can't count on that.

Crsh washers must be replaced unless they are copper, which is unlikely.

What's your beer/hour rate?

I figured that about the gasket - $14.95 from Procycle - size & # of crush washers? If there was more than just me interested, we could probably bulk order.

Beer/hour is very low.

I'd have to look into the size of the crush washers - but there's also an "O" ring behind the oil filter which pretty much has to be replaced. That's not the place to scrimp, if you know what I mean.

Hey, def interested in some NSU screws but going to hold off till next winter to tackle (hope I didn't just freakin jinx myself). But if I could pick some up that would be great.

I have bought from procycle in past and prob will again but suggest you price out some parts at the local dealer just for comparison if you're looking at stock parts.

Delivery/duty sucks.

If you put off the NSU job, buy a magnetic oil drain plug anyway. That way if any screws come adrift, and you're lucky, it'll just end up on the magnet. ProCycle sells a good one..

Thanks, magnetic plug already on.

Just holding off as finally have bike up and running as of today.

Need to reinstall skid plate and handguards then off to see how the 606's work.

Also forgot to ask what is the "T-mod"?

The T mod is a junction you add to the carb vent so if you go through deep water the vent won't draw water into the carb. You vent the other side of the T to a high place near the steering head.

Now that I need to do! (as my sig suggests, I am a dumbass.....)

chilibizkit, Jon_l has dropped a pkg with 14 screws in the mail - if you're interested, pm me your snail addy and I will flip you a couple.

Done thanks.

Heading to the EOAR this year, looking at the past posts the T-mod may be a good idea.

Anyone else going ?

I know its a big area but anyone else from Ottawa way getting out this weekend.

Back roads, logging roads and might get misplaced for a bit.

Hey everyone, I'm hoping I can get some help with an issue I'm having.

I did a fork swap on my DR650 and installed a nice set off a 2000 RM250 and now the springs are too soft to hold a heavy bike with 19L of fuel and a fat bastard at the helm.

I've been looking for new springs and from what I have found the stock spring rate on the RM forks is .435 Kg/mm as can be seen here.

From looking at the eibach catalog (PDF) I found that the #991 spring is 44.6x455 mm only comes in spring rates up the .45 Kg/mm

What I want to know:

Can I use a #968 spring that is 44x455mm from a '05-'07 Yamaha YZF so I can get a spring rate of .52 Kg/mm ? or am I asking for trouble? Will it fit? It's only .6mm outer diameter smaller...

Does anyone have any other suggestions? comments? Help ?

Sorry Quantis but my knowledge is very limited in that area.

You could try posting in the DR650 forum as someone might have done that fork swap already and tried different springs. Plus it gets alot more action than here.
