Perfect timing. My Valve inspection is coming up soon.

Which also brings up my next question...

Anyone done a valve check/adjustment at home yet?
Will you do a write up for us with pics?


Or am I going to have to be the first one?

I thought i read somewhere that at after 5000rpm the injectors were running at pretty much full duty cycle. they felt no need to develop a unit, whats changed , whats the benefits

Seems that the 100% duty cycle happens at high RPM on quick throttle opening. Which makes sense......

Regardless, read that thread, you'll see the progression of development.

Revzilla and Motorcycle Superstore are both having a sale on Power Commanders right now (right around $300 vs. DynoJet selling them for $380) and I have been talking to both of them about adding the TR650 PC-V to their websites. They both will do so as soon as their distributors have them in stock (any day now).

I ended up bending the front rim on the Terra the other night on my way home...

Hit this at 55-60mph in the dark and got a nasty pinch flat:


I went back the next day to see how big it was and took this pic. I think a truck/trailer moved the rock out from that hole to the left and it was sticking up high enough to bottom out my front suspension (and bend the rim a little).


Its not bad enough to notice with a picture, but when I spin the front wheel, you can see a wobble. When I get the time I'll take it off and measure it with calipers to see how much I'll need to bend it to get it back to normal.

The bike still rides ok though, no extra wobbles or vibrations.

Is it just me or does this bike need a Throttle Rocker? I haven't heard anyone else complain but my hand gets pretty tired after being on the highway for a while. I put one on from another bike and it seemed to help a lot.

Lowering the TR650

Like a lot of people out there I'm not blessed with a 6' plus height, I'm just about 5'9", what makes riding my Terra sometimes a little difficult while coming to a stop, sliding to the left of the saddle to get my left foot flat on the ground.
The low center of gravity of the Terra makes that easy, but if you add camping gear for a week or two it will be a whole different story just balancing on one leg. A few years back while owning a Buell Ulysses, a bike that seemed to be only meant for rather tall people, I came across a company in my native Germany that sold lowering "links" for the Uly. Bought one and installed one, worked like a charm, could get both of my big toes on the ground .
The lowering part is the lower spring retainer of the rear Sachs shock and not the dog-bones. WWW.Mizu.de's part:

Original Sachs part:

That lowered the bike in the rear by about 30mm, I slid the forks up in the triple tree about the same. Now I can touch the ground with the balls of my feet.

C'mon RE! You're the guy that successfully took the Terra where the rest of us fear to tread (at lest for a very long 60' wide "fear to tread") and came back to give us a world-class ride report!!

After that, valves should be a piece of cake!!

Ha! We'll see.

That ride didn't go as smooth as possible, let's hope taking this Rotax apart is easier.

If the Husky is like the BMW, follow the throttle cables to the throttle housing on the left hand side of the engine.

There you will see two return springs on the throttle housing.

Look closely and you will see the two little hooks that hold the return springs on.

Unhook the outside spring and let it go, it just sits there quite happily and doesn't get caught or in the way.

Your throttle will now be about 50% easier to hold and turn.

Nothing else to do.

Excellent info, Cruz! I must check that out. I like a soft sprung throttle with little resistance. Comes from all my years riding Observed Trials, I reckon.

I don't have a cramping problem on long stretches of slab....with my Kaoko cruise lock installed.

Makes riding a lot more fun and you don't have to reposition your throttle hand all the time.
