    '93 DR650 - How hard to check/change carb jet?

    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

    '93 DR650 Generator Cover

    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

    1993 DR650S aftermarket pipe? Does it even exist?

    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?
