2001 Suzuki DR650

Two later and now we’re getting

Oil leak fixed by replacing the cam tensioner gasket,

Raised the height back to normal means changing the fork and rear shock mount welding an extension into the side stand

Stripped the off the fenders and side covers and the luggage rack silver.

the rear turn signals so are less vulnerable in a tip-over.

EMGO folding dual-sport

Cut down and remounted the little BMW (which does make a at highway speeds).

Vastly throttle response by shimming the .030,drilling out the second vacuum (it’s cast into the but plugged) to the top of the slide, removing the snorkel and adding an extended mixture screw. I’m the stock (#140) mainjet, air-box with a twin-air and a stock exhaust. With setup the bike runs well at all speeds, has no soot in the and delivers around 55-60mpg.

Plus, and this is important to me, it chug along like a Deere when asked.

The still had some issues at point. IMO, it’s was FAR too stiff and there was a unacceptable of handlebar vibration.

Two more and making progress:

Since will be an adventure bike I will travel on, it needs of course. I have some bags I used for years on my and all that was needed is some bag to make those work.

Here I’ve added the bag mounts,

a Utah Sportcycle plate,

a Keintech adjustable guide

and a sweet little rainproof tank bag from Motorcycle Outfitters.

The worn tires have been with a slightly more tread that works for my combined street and dirt

Not visible are the Vibranators mass-tuned dampners in the handlebars

and Ricor cartridge inserts in the forks.

Adding the Vibranators AND reducing the on the handlebar soft mounts a dramatic difference in handlebar It’s only slightly than the DR350 now and is quite The Intimidator fork cartridge were a BIG step in the right in that the forks became more responsive; BUT, were still too stiff for my style.

Seems to me this ‘s suspension (don’t if it was stock or not) was tuned more towards spirited riding than for off-road terrain. That had to be fixed.

It was a GREAT trip and the big DR was heavily but did just fine. In fact, I was amazed by it in a couple of the rougher where it just tractored

Bottom line, if I could ONLY one motorcycle, I’m sure the DR650 (well, a new one), would be THE one.
