2003 DR650 1276 miles on the clockwhen I bought it a couple weeks ago ...well, now it's 1433.6 since the dual-sport ride last weekend we live at about 1200 ft elevation....but just about all rides will increase the elevation from that point hot & dry most of the time here in sunny Phoenix AZ The bike ran really crisp when I got it, but now here at a lower elevation, it's not quite as good & it pops often on decel....it didn't do that much when I looked at it...... here's the bike at the start of our ride last Saturday: and just cuz I know that you are interested.....here's a few pics from the ride: yep.....we're heading right up to that snow line & over the other side to head back down. it's starting to get real windy & a bit cold too:eek: MODS: Airbox was cut by the PO & he had a couple of German Motorheads that work on BMW cars & bikes rejet it. Their elev was about 3200 feet and the bike it the CALIFORNIA MODEL. The PO didn't know what the motorheads did to rejet, so I don't know if the carb only has a few different jets in it, or the full-tilt change with new needle & all. I'll need to open up the carb to find out before I buy anything. FMF Exhaust...rear section only The bike has been properly lowered to 8.7" travel by the dealer The Shortie Kickstand New RK O-Ring Chain Full Knobbies all around Since I got it, I added: 4.9 IMS Natural tank TUSK Tank Bag California Charcoal Cannister & all tubing removed & plugged (musta dropped 6 lbs. in the process) DG Skidplate (needs to be mounted) Pro-Taper HandleBars & Gel Grips CYCRA HandProtection, but I'm switching to the ACERBIS with the integrated DOT Flashers as soon as they arrive Smaller Rear Flashers Ken Sean Mirrors Guardian Bell I also just got that nice rear rack on eBay for $70 and I bought the side protection to hang my rear bags over too. This stuff is really well made and they look great. I any of you are looking at these.....I highly recommend them! I want to go back to the full height suspension. I'm just a short shit @ 5'9"...but my upbringing has been all dirt riding & racing, so I am very comfortable with the ground so far away. I want that extra suspension to fit my riding style. I have my sights set on a pair of forks, and the rear shock is a simple change. When I am done, my short forks will probably be available if anyone is looking. so, my simple question is......but then, maybe it's not so simple:banghead: I have been on the DRZ400 Forum for some time, but I am new to this DR650 list and I'm almost ready to place the order for the jet kit. I have read.....and I have researched.....and I have read so much that my tired old eyes are blurring!! Anyway, I need to place an order with RockyMountainATV for some other stuff, and all they sell for this 2003 DR650 is the K&N Jet Kit Yes, I know Jesse has & recommends the DynoJet, but my simple question is: Is the K&N Jet Kit comparable???...........is it good to use instead of the DynoJet? No need to kick off a great big detailed thread here as I know we all are after "the great needle"...........so, will K&N get me there:confused: OR should I just scratch that idea & call Jesse when I am ready. Thanks in advance:thumbsup: HappyRiding !!
