  1. gone now. sorry guys....
  2. check this out..... its in australia. mmmmm black.
  3. 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
  4. sydney here.... dr 650 too....
  5. 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??
  6. 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...
  7. is it possible to tell what jet size it already has??
  8. if tis already running rich wont these 2 things compound the problem????
  9. my manual says... http://i31.photobucket.com/albums/c381/jamodu-fishbulb/jetdata.jpg EDIT: there shoud be a picture there..... Grrrr
  10. 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???
  11. 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
  12. lol... seems like theres a few of us heading out that way... im setting up a 12000 km transcontinental for next year, and we are planning a couple of test rides out that way!! have fun guys!
  13. anyone know where to gat one in australia.... ive ordered at 2 different motorcycle shops and im still waiting 2 months later.... customer service in this country sucks!
  14. *ill explain the fishbulb in person.... * im in sydney... we should still hook up for a ride sometime.... i too am a cruiser.
