Drop that in a bike chassis for the ultimate non-wheelie !


You could drop that THROUGH a bike chassis, only weighs about 350kg.... (and all of 8 horse power)

Check yr carb is a 12EF // 411 , ID on left side

For sea level : =

You should have a 6F10 needle 691-y2 nozzle and 137.5 main jet

Pilot should be 52.5

Pilot Air is a 1.3 stock but 1.4 is better and I wish I had a 1.5 because that would be better still , the stock setup (1.3) is prone to off-idle rich bog at full operating temp

It must have been an icy cold day in Japan when they chose a 1.3,  cos its wrong !!!

If your slide and slide guide is worn no amount of jetting will overcome a crap running older DR ! Passop !

Hope this helps ?

I'm looking for a rear caliper bracket for a pre 94 DR650. I've got all the parts I need for a rear disc conversion on my DR750, just missing this bracket.

Check with Lecap. He might have old DR spares.

Anyone still here?  >:D

So I import a 25l (6.6 Gallon) Acerbis tank for my DR and it turns out that it doesn't fit! Its for '92-95 DRs and mine is a '91. Bugger.

If anyone wants it, make me an offer. Its brand new, unused. : http://www.justgastanks.com/suzuki-dr650-acerbis-gas-tank-1992-1995/

I would like to get my money back if possible.....

Anyone here can PM me contact details for Veemax?

Any one has tightening torques for an SP43 cylinder head. Or a WORKING link to a manual?

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a coil for my 1986 DR600s. Haven't tried the agent's as I'm scared of what they might say.

A mate of mine who owns a motorcycle shop reckons he can fit a coil from a Chinese twin cylinder bike for me as his done this before on a DR600, but I'd first like to try and get an original part before resorting to this.

If anyone can point me in a direction to potentially source this part it would be greatly appreciated.

I somehow don't think that you will find one at the Agents. Perhaps the later coil DR coil is the same if - not your other option is not a bad one necessarily.

The DR600 was a twin spark motor, so the coil has two wires leading to two spark plugs whereas the DR650 is a single spark plug motor/coil.
If I can't find something I might just go the "Chinese option" at first and still look around for a original replacement part over time.

Looks to be the right part yes Mr D, I'm not exactly sure how buying on EBay works though. Are you currently in the U.K.?

I haven't started the bike all week so quickly tried it this afternoon. Starts perfectly first kick. I let it idle for some time till it cut out. Started easy again after that. By now the engine was propper hot and I disconnected the suppressors individually to check for spark. Spark is strong jumping from about a 10mm gap and the idle speed only dips a little with only one plug connected.
So with no issues popping up in the driveway I headed out for a short spin around the burbs and a quick loop in the bush then headed home. The bike didn't stutter or cough once and even as I got home it idled perfectly.
Don't you just hate electronic problems!
Will go for a long ride next weekend to see what it does when it has to labour at speed and up a few hills.
