sprockets
« on: December 07, 2011, 01:55:08 pm »
Sorry, I guess I am lazy - there should be something on sprockets and chains..but let me start off saying I bought a DR 650! Thx Veemax for helping me out in spotting the beauty. Pics wil follow soon, haven't got it yet..it's coning with the train from the Cape to jhb..not that expensive!R500

The chain is moeg, getting new O-ring, need proper sprockets. Where can I find in jhb and...the size: I want to ride at 120-130km/h with the engine not revving high, so more fuel consumption regarded here than acceleration. What size front and back would you say?

The DR is geared quite high.  (Too high for technical climbs with stock carb.) For your purpose I would stick with the stock gearing 15t X 41t. US bikes comes with 42t I think.

If you replacing the carb, it will be worth looking for a used Keihin FCR carb. But Hagar will be able to tell you all about it...

Carb kits can be ordered from Pro - Cycles. They in USA -see link below.

Most parts you can get from Suzuki-normally waiting for 3 weeks as they don't stock parts.

My 1993 Suzuki DR650 runs about 4 500 @ 120km/h.

Remember from 1995 they changed to what is essentially the current DR650 so parts are generally not interchangeable.

I've put a 47 on the rear of mine, so it does about 5200 at 120kph which is a bit high for road use, but excellent on technical dirt where the 'peakiness' of the old DR engines is smoothed out quite a lot.

So where's the pics?
