Is daar 'n Andre "voor" en "na" grafiek?

Nee, ek is nie n grafiek en analiese nut soos Matie nie. Ek shape hom sommer so met die oog tot hy vir my reg lyk.
Dan praat ek en jy dieselfde taal!

Ek verstaan die BST is nie 'n te sensitiewe carb nie, so 'n paar "imperfeksies" gaan nie 'n verskil maak nie!

Moet se die taper naald laat my nou nog glimlag!

Ja chopper, ek leef nog hahahaha, net net!

kan jy dit oor vertel, eks te besig vir WD en ek werk vir die staat!
Dis ongehoortvan, abnormaal en sal onmiddelik gestaak word!

ek lag nou lekker vir kykdaar....

6maande terug:
Kykdaar: "jys laf man, los jou carb uit! jy weet nie wat jy doen nie"
Matie: "Maar oom ek hou daarvan om aan sulke goed te karring, ek weet eks dom maar ek kan sweis, gee my n spanner en ek bou n huis"
Kykdaar: "my DR is die beste en hy het teveel poeier en soek niks anders nie, hy start sommer as ek net vir hom kyk so goed is hy gejettttt"
Matie: " Kyk hier oom doen die volgende:"
Kykdaar: "NEE"

vandag:
Kykdaar: "goeie bliksem ekt die volgende gedoen, en nous my DR die beste"
Matie: Oubal, as jy 6 maande terug vir my geluister het en presies wat ek toe vir jou gese het gedoen het, het jy 6maande terug al so bejaste DR gehaad




I could agree with you! But then we both would be wrong.....

Can anybody tell me what the electrical switch on the carb is for? I can't find anything on google or in the manual. It seems to be switched when the throtle is fully opened?

Not the TPS (throttle position sensor) ? Apparently you can disconnect it and it makes no difference.

Speak to Andrew.

Will have stock, and can courier overnight.

The switch does make a difference:
It only retards the ignition if a combination of throttle fully open and low engine speed is present - to prevent knocking.
No you should not disconnect this switch.
Some models do not need this switch since their different jetting prevents the knocking.
The switch does have absolutely no function in the bikes usable power band.

An Australian, who can certainly ride a DR650, says, in a YouTube video, that the "slide guide" in the standard Mikuni, can wear out in 20000 km.
The Haynes manual, also, says it must be replaced if there's "too much" play between slide and guide.
But Suzuki doesn't even mention or picture it in its parts list!!!
Any ideas?

Isn't the poor breather filter the culprit to this supposedly accelerated slide and guide wear?

I have improved the breather with filter material from an old air filter, and clean and oil it after every dusty ride.

On some older DRs the filter medium has totally disintegrated.

One of my DR's is on 140,000km. No troublesome wear on the slide guide.

Look after your air filter.

The little filter foam piece inside the breather usually disintegrates within a few years. Cut a piece of filter sponge and push it in. Rinse occasionally.

I have slightly over 80 000 Km (2008)model and no slide wear....Moderate gravel usage...is true what Le Cap says, just clean and oil or replace the little foam filter.
and she said " What are you doin today ? ".
and I said " Nothing ".
and she said " But you did that yesterday ".
and I said "I haven`t finished yet ".

Thanks for your responses, guys.
My problem is that, only now, after 55k km has my attention been drawn to this kak little filter and I have no way of objectively knowing if the slide guide is too worn.
The Oz oke says if you can't see two "holes" at the sides of the guide it should be replaced.
