Default Restoration Pics, 1990 D7

I thought i'd share a few pics of the bike now its near completion, still breaking it in and the kick start ratchet needs replacement as its starting to slip in one spot, getting a little clutch slip with the extra power of the 280 piston so heavier clutch springs will go in too, love this bike for the mountains trails around here. Happy days.!

Nice job on the rebuild. Is the front tire mounted correctly? Usually the chevrons point the other direction.

azklrian your absolutely correct it was the wrong direction, its been swapped round to the right direction since that pic was taken.

Wow first off Amazing job! I have the same bike, just different color scheme I am trying to restore as well. My bike was in way better shape to begin with lol, but still needs some work, especially with the clutch and the carb. My question to you is where did you find a new fuel Petcock? I see some one ebay, but do not want to buy a cheap one and have it leak everywhere.

Thanks and again awesome job!

The decals were a bit tricky as I had to make them up myself, although most items were bought online and easy to find for this colour scheme.

The petrol cock was bought new off ebay, its the 90 degree type which has a better route for the fuel line to the carb.

Just got the 10 or so "little" jobs that needed doing finished and almost happy with the jetting.
Tried a few variations on the jetting and the 38 pilot with 130 main combo was fun although not good for town speeds, even had to run a DPRE7 plug to stop it snuffing the plug, the exhaust bangs on deceleration were rude.
The 280 piston and head porting work really were worth the time and effort as there is bags of power from low down now and revs that bit quicker, now running N60P needle, 35 pilot 2-3/4 turns out, 130 main and DPRE8 plug, modified air box and free flow exhaust. Its a Damnoto exhaust from ebay, 110 bucks, I had to mod it a bit to fit but it sounds great but alas a bit too loud, so more work to be done there.

Thanks for your reply. Be sure to let us know once you find the best jetting/exhaust system you like.

For a while now I've been wanting to upgrade my KLR for added power, but I just never wanted to put on a super-loud muffler, or burn up too much fuel by over-jetting.

Perhaps using a stock duel-exhaust muffler from another bike may answer this issue. I've heard you can mount a duel-muffler from a 2014 Honda CRF250R fairly easily. In theory, it should keep the bike quiet enough to be street legal (80dB in the USA), and create much less back pressure then the stock KLR muffler would (Also, duel-mufflers look pretty cool, too!).


Good luck with your setup, and let us know how it goes!
