    6'4" & Taller riders? Also pushing 300lbs.

    At 6'5", I raised the seat 2" (Renazco), added 1" bar risers, installed Renthal Pro Taper SE (7/8") KX-HI bars, and lowered the pegs. Also, I stand up as much as possible to stretch out (I also ride observed trials a lot so standing is no biggee - in fact I prefer standing to sitting.) Good Luck.

    DR650 Aqualine tank

    I went the fuel pump route. BTW the DF44-211 lacks the capacity to keep up with hard acceleration, at least on my open airbox, DJ kit, Staintune piped DR650. The DF52-73 works fine - just blocked off one of the outlet tubes.

    DR650SE Needle Comparison

    Thanks to this thread I've got my DR650 running pretty smooth. Now that I've got a baseline setting for the jets.... summer time and going to the mountains will change the available air density. Does anyone have a conversion chart or rules of thumb for changing jetting relative to altitude and\or temperature changes? I'm at 1,000 feet now going to 10,000. Temps now are in the 60's but shortly going to 90+. DJ165, DJNeedle 4th clip, drilled slide, jessie fuel screw 1 1/4, open airbox, staintune pipe, uni filter. Thanks - great work mx_rob!!

    How did you make a spark arrestor for your staintune exhaust? I've got one also and will be riding thru some Natl Forest on the SpringTAT ride. thanks

    2002 DR 650 Oil cooler

    Does anyone know how to by-pass the oil cooler if it fails on the trail as in this case? That way you could at least ride your way out. thanks mpc 05 DR650

    handle bar size

    7/8" if you are looking at ProTaper as a replacement they are the SE (seven-eighths) model.

    Did the 600 mile tune myself

    Call Jesse at http://www.kientech.com/ he sells a valve adjusting tool kit that has the feeler gauges and the valve adjuster tool. They are not advertised on his web page so just call him.

    What's wrong with stock?

    If you want to stay stock - don't read this forum - it will make you want more and more stuff. Once you start tweaking it is hard to stop. Mr. FedEx just this minute showed up at the front door with a StainTune pipe gotta go!!!

    Heated Hand Grips

    I've got the Dual Star Grip Heaters also - but I'm "electrically challenged" - what color wire on the bike do you connect to get power to the heaters? thanks

    Latest seat update

    I just finished my first long ride, 120 miles, using the stock seat - ouch ouch and ouch. I'm in line with Renazco for a custom seat and after today I'm ready now but it will be another 3 weeks til he has an opening.

    Highest highbend handlebars?

    Go to http://www.protaper.com/sebars.html click on "Load Chart" and you can see the specs on all the bars. I went with KX High 108mm and they don't sweep back as far as the others. CR High are 95mm.
