  1. Hey there, Also running a '93 dr 650, and had huge problems starting it until I figured out the right sequence with the decompression lever: 1: in neutral, push kickstart until you hit compression. 2: pull in decompression lever (it should stay in) 3: slowly push kickstart until the deco lever clicks out, then release kickstarter 4: kick I still seem to be the only person who doesn't battle to start my bike though, makes for a good ani theft system. Cheers, Graham
  2. Possibly someone here could help out, A friend of mine has a '84 DR 600s, and his engine siezed last week, there are no replacements locally (South Africa) Essentially the entire engine needs to be replaced ( See http://www.wilddogtours.co.za/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6117 ) If anyone knows of one floating around it would be greatly appreciated if you could give me a shout, best is email : gralowe (at) hotmail.com Thanks, Graham
  3. Thanks for that, had it all checked out, sending it in today & should be finished in time for the weekend play session
  4. Hi All, Does anyone know what the 93 DR650 generator cover is made of? I managed to crack mine when the bike lay down for a bit of a rest while riding... :applause: My welder says not a problem if it is aluminium, but he can't do it if it is Magnesium, it is a small (+-3cm) crack where the gear shift lever hit the case when I fell off a rock outcrop. Thanks, Gra
  5. Hey there, just given up trying to find an aftermarket pipe in my neck of the woods & am getting somone to make a custom one up for me tomorrow... mine if full of holes and rust, so don't have much choice. Did the DJ kit make a difference, and is it the same as a newer model DR's kit?
