thanks for a brilliant thread.

have spent the last 3 hours on it.   fascinating,  informative  and a thoroughly good read.   I'll be getting my DR next week,  and this thread will be like an instruction manual.

Aaiirree!!!

Nice one ganjora. The service manual is downloadable off the net. Just do a google search. I'v done all the services myself (9000ks on the 08 bike now).

Bike runs smoooooth

I would definitely get a performance exhaust asap. My airage is very loud, but the bike has a lot more go and personality. I also opened up the airbox a little after chatting to Jesse at Keintech in the US.

Enjoy!!

Re: How I marked my 33l Safari long range fuel tank

This is how I marked the fuel level on my tank:
Why do it? Because I don't have a fuel gauge and it'll help with the estimated range guesswork.

First, I drain the fuel and refill it with 100ml of petrol. That should be enough to get me to the nearest garage.
It is not.
The bike sputters to a halt about halfway to the pumps. Turns out the last 100ml or so is useless because it wonâ??t reach the tap. Silly me. So I push the bike to the garage. Fortunately itâ??s not heavy

33lâ?¦ Ebagom!
Even the pump jockey is impressed

Ek kry sommer trane in my oe as ek sien nie te lank gelede hoe goedkoop dit was om 'n tank vol te maak nie.  :'( :'( :'(

Whoop whoop! Pulled the trigger and ordered a new white DR650! :biggrin:

I am so glad I did not wait until January, because Johann from Wayne Heasman Suzuki said their were only 2 white DR's left.

Longest week of my life. :laughing4:
