Got my toolkit today

I think I called my dealer about 3 or 4 days ago and requested a toolkit.

Got it today-------those Halls Husqvarna guys are on top of things.

UPS lady was a little cold in her short shorts.
My dog JoJo doesn't like her ???????



What's not to like about her ???? She's always bringing me stuff !!!!

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

My Ups driver doesn't look that lean! He just left a few minutes ago.....I got a good look at him. Think he drinks more beer than yours does. But he does no the name of my stupid dogs...

P.s. called my Dealer (Donnell's in KC) about my missing toolkit. They were unaware and got right to action. Expecting to hear back from them by Tuesday. None of their TR650s have had a toolkit. So, they didn't seem aware that it had one.

I Followed Hi5's oil change proceedure for a 5000 km change minus the goop (new crush washers) and wire holder apparatus thing!. This is the third lot of oil that has been in the bike.

It is a bit fiddly.

Braking open the allen key drain bolt up top was a bit of an effort as described by Hi5!

Almost 2.2 litres of oil fell out of it - I measured it. I might have over filled it?

I put in a new filter.

The magnetic drain bolt looked like this:



Which is not bad I suppose.

I poured in 1.8 L, fired it up for a few minutes and then put 2.1L in (I use valvaline 10-50 synthetic I got 90,000 out of a DR650 on this stuff without lifting the head so I figure its OK).

I rode it around for a while, got the the fan going 3 minutes waited 3 minutes, bike upright and the oil level was at the low end of the specified range?

I think the cited oil capicity might be a bit on the low side?

If your bike did not have a dipstick or site glass, how much oil would you be putting in it?

I've had numerous bikes without any oil level gauges of any kind. Simply installed the engineered specification for oil volume....and never lost any sleep over it. So, consider the possibility that the manufacture spec is more accurate than the dipstick. Maybe the dipstick was made to incorrect length....I donno.

I agree with this completely. I measure out my oil, pour it then forget about it.

If I'm bored I'll check the level when the bike warms up.

Called up the dealer in AZ, they said they received a bulletin notifying them about receiving tool kits and mailing them out to customers.

Tools in Toolkit

Looks like we get a combination phillips and regular screwdriver.
Shock spring pre-load adjusting tool.
Sparkplug Wrench
And 2 torx wrench with 2 sizes on each----so you get 4 sizes.





They didn't bill me for it----but it's plainly got my name on it with a price of $14.50
Man I'm glad to get this---that's good enough----I'll provide what other tools I need.



All my other tools go in my tool tube I made out of the stock mufflers on my use to be mine 950.

I'm going to see if I can cram a 21" tube in by the battery too !!

How to mount handguards with no cutting or drilling

I mounted these Cycra Probends today.


I utilized the stock bar end with the threaded nub.

Remember the boat anchor license plate holder on the rear? Well if you remove that, the two bolts left over thread into the bar ends.


Buy some longer bolts like Big Dog was talking about earlier and mount these to the top end of the forks:


Then with a little bending in the vice (I used small bits of force and no heat), I shaped them to the necessary bend.
I also tilted the bars forward a tad. I've been meaning to do this the past 450 miles, but haven't had a chance.
When you're 6'2" this bike feels like a tricycle with the bars in the stock position.
There was also no need to trim the end of the control levers, I have 1/4" clearance from the ball on the end.

These make great forms for my bar mitts to fit around:

I really like your hand guards, good job on the install. Since I know nothing about off road stuff, where do you get them?
