    Sand Duning

    just once.... with a road tyre on the back it was .... well.... once through the dunes (about 1km of talc like sand) we rode 25 km along the wet sand to the exit point.... (about 1.5 km of talc again) that dr felt like a fat old harley by the end of the day. http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c381/jamodu-fishbulb/DSCF0003test.jpg

    fuel econ and jetting questions...

    economy is at its worst in city traffic for me... i do most of my riding at low speed in traffic, i wouldnt say im wot att the time but often enough to be considered a bit of a hoon.... does engine braking effect economy??

    fuel econ and jetting questions...

    thats the kind of economy im hoping to get to.... the previous owner told me it was stock execpt for the Q1 slip on... however ive since discovered the airbox mods + paper filter and an aftermarket idle screw (i think) ill wait till the weekend to try looking at the jet and see what happens... i asked at a mc shop on friday what a jet was worth and the guy told me $200.. panicing i went to a suzuki dealer and he told me $9... pays to ask around eh??? cheers for all the responses guys...

    fuel econ and jetting questions...

    im running 14-41 gearing... i found 15-41 just too tall to be practical off road... i did wonder how accurate my speedo was but i did a 700km ride with a gs1150 and our total ride distance was within a few % of each other.... i think it has had carb work done because it has the adjustable idle screw.with the paper filter its running rich and backfires like nothing else, its actually embarassing to ride in town because everybody looks up.... if i add the foam filter it will be running even richer!! yikes. does anyone know how easy it is to install a main jet???

    hey folks.... ive got a 98 dr650 and im only getting 15km / litre (thats 35mpg in old money). its had the airbox opened (paper filter) and a Q1 muffler fitted. if i go to a foam filter and a 140 jet will my fuel economy improve?? how easy is it to change a mainjet?? im setting the bike up for a trip around the bottom half of australia (12,000km) and need better fuel economy and dust protection... cheers fish
