    Have you pulled the fuel hose off the carb and checked fuel flow from the tank ? There is another filter in the fuel tap. The other thing mine suffered with once was a high resistance spark plug cap (just one) would run fine when cooled down but then pop and backfire warm and stall (on the side of the road north of Gisborne) the manual says check them together which showed up no fault but when you removed them and checked individually one was very high resistance, new cap and it ran sweet.

    Another quick easy check is to get a bit of clear hose that fits on the carb drain, hold the other end up alongside the carb & open the drain screw. Then you will be able to see the float bowl fuel level - which should be very close to the join of the float bowl to the carb body.

    Cheers

    Well went for a standard carb rebuild kit, replaced all the seals and jets and idle screw. The kit didn't come with needle jet, only the needle which was the us version with a single slot.
    I decided to used the old matching needle and jet as I feel the us needle wouldn't match the existing jet which I set on the 3rd slot.
    Bike now runs sweet, gutless and boring but it's a nice steady ride. I can feel the need for all the carb/breathing mods I have been reading about, there's so much more to offer in there....I'd hope.
    Still, I've done my bit and it's all good. Thanks for the input guys

    Hand choke replacement

    Hey guys,

    I ended up buying a hand-choke to replace my seized choke cable on the DR650. I bought it from Adventure Bike Australia, which as it turns out stocks the same hand choke as prorider. In hindsight I should of paid an extra $10 or so and got a longer hand choke from kientech, as the prorider one is hard to use in between the throttle cable and also requires filing down the idle stop.

    I am going to fix the new choke shortly, should I use an anti-seize lube on the enricher head? Or is any grease fine? Or should I not bother lubing it altogether?
