  1. :banana:Hey, this is one not to miss. I have rode if for 6 years and the course is different each time. The Saturday portion is one the the most scenic and enjoyable forest rides put out. I understand they will have a toy hauler parked at the West side straight away with cold refreshments during the the air races Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Think I will come early to take part and watch the races. BTW, has anyone seen the bitchin Flyer for this years RR200...just over the wall, that one. Will probably be a collector's item for shop and garage walls. High Plains Drifter
  2. Does the Dymo 400 turbo take other than Dymo thermal rolls? Bulk 150' ones?
  3. Do not leave out the bullet proof Suzuki DR 650 SE
  4. Here is a good moderated site for asking and view oil related questions for all types of engines. There is a special motorcycle formum also. Real good and technical info. Dean http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=9&page=1 Would you believe Rottella 15-40 is highly ranked for motorcycle use. (400 to 1500 cc)!
  5. Do you still have the oil recovery box on the bike? Its on the right side next to the carb in side of the frame. If someone has removed it and connected all the hoses together, then that is why you are dumping oil.

  7. Your float bowl bottom looks the same as mine. I have a 2001 DRZ 400EK with a stock FCR carb. When I last tore into the carb I decided to purchase a Sunline fuel/air mixture screw and found out after measurements that it did not fully seat since it was making contact with the float bowl drain/jet access plug. Only went in 6 turns instead of 8. It was too short, but others such as Factory R&D are longer. Have not purchase one yet.

  8. If the handguards are Red, then what is the color of the Coke A Cola sign under the bench?

  10. VIO-POV camera kits are around $600 (no need for other camera, battery pack or wired remote). I use it mounted on my helmet with motorcycle rides and solid mount on quad. Have used mine in all weather and conditions, that Nevada can throw at me. The camera has been whacked by limbs when used on helmet. They are built like Lunar Rovers. Takes 1, 2, 4, or 8 gig memory cards and then using Lithium ion batteries it shoots for 10 hours plus. http://pointofviewcameras.com/pov-1-vio-point-of-view-waterproof-helmet-mount-camera.html?gclid=CPik94KLuZgCFRIcawoddBozaQ
  11. I can't either. Will corrrect. HPD
  12. If you say so. The mechanics of the design and operation say otherwise.
  13. Dirt would not have an affect of this particular part of the carb. It is totally slide wear induced fatigue. Engine vacuum pulls the plate abruptly against the carb body (banging) and then as you raise the slide it grinds against the carb body. You can see the wear on the bottom half easily with a light source and removal of the carb. The upper wear can only be seen via removal of the slide.
  14. The internal roller slide and vacuum plate is the same on all FCRs of that model, according to the Keihin site. http://www.keihin-us.com/fcr.htm Update: I ordered my parts from Bike Bandit $117 for Plate (Suzuki Part No.: 13555-29F00) and $10.50 for Seal (Suzuki Part No.: 13559-29F00). They were genuine Suzuki Parts. I called my local Suzuki dealer and their prices were (Not including 7.35% tax): Plate: $173.01 (over the phone) Seal: $14,09 (over the phone) Via their website: Plate: $150.44 Seal: $12.25 I guess you have to pay for the sales person.
  15. Some pictures of my Outlander outfitted with the Apache Track System in the Sierras North of Truckee, CA. Enjoy Sorry about earlier. I thought you could use any photo sharing site.
