He's gonna take it to the dealership tomorrow cuz its still under warranty just dont know how they are going to react with the smog stuff takin off any help would be greatfull

thanks for all the help guys looks like all stay in the FRIENDLY DR650 thread


What are you, 12?

I'm a XR650L owner and would love to help but the details on your initial post are too scant and to be honest it's so poorly written I'm not sure what you are talking about...it was "on FIRE" you say? In that case better pack a fire extinguisher and some asbestos clothing because there's not much anyone on the board can do with a burning bike.

Besides, if the bike is still under warranty let the dealership worry about it...

And yes, unless you have a good relationship with the dealer who's willing to look the other way most mods will void the warranty, especially those that may be seen to have an impact on the problem.

Totally agree, It's not that we don't want to help, just that the post was too non specific on what the actual problem is ..You're also either a warranty guy or you're not..

Also the only question that you actually asked was "do you guys have any suggestions?"

Would you have been happier with half a dozen "no" responses?

I've found this forum to be very helpful when I've clearly stated the problem I'm trying to solve.
