    I'll try that tomorrow. I just figured or hoped that if the carb either works right or doesn't work. I didn't think it could be intermittent Thanks for the link. Any idea where I can get a seat cover for a 95?

    O-kay not sure if I am useing this site right. But, my 1995 dr650 is still running rough.  It will dureing the course of a ride smooth out to where you don't feel any vibration but always returns to a hard vibration.  I don't loose any horse power, it doesn't backfire much, I've pulled the card and cleaned and inspected all parts, the wires are good, replaced the plugs and battery, coils have good spark, changed gas the tank.  What am I missing?

Carburetor issues will cause that. Could be anything in the carb from worn seals to worn needles or seats. Do you have a manual for the bike? Clymers or Haynes gives a fairly detailed procedure for a carb rebuild. There is a large free manual here, not sure which year it is. Do pay close attention to which carbs they mention, I believe the carb has changed over the years.

    For a seat cover I would use a local upholstery shop, autos or boats. As long as your seat pan is still good they can put new foam in it if it needs that and new vinyl in any color you like. Less than $100 usually.

What would cause a 1995 Nissan Maxima to run and idle rough at times, and then run perfectly normal? Is this a problem with the injectors, spark plugs, plug wires, or what could it be? The check engine...

it could be a failing sensor, most common is the cam sensor, if its not reading sometimes it will give wrong signal, most come to do this when engine is hot.

I got lost with translation on the ebay link, but I would say no to the camshaft. The image on the site you linked was of the some sprockets only, again no. The two models have different camshaft journal cup placement. I own the '90RS model (recent total engine rebuild, so have workshop manual) and looking at diagrams (site link below) of the top end of the 2000, they have different camshaft sprocket connecting faces. The site below has exploded views of all parts of the motorcycle, 95% of DR650 models are there. Cheers.

1995 Suzuki DR650 still running rough

sounds to me like your jets are running rough, wich makes you loose power and make the bike run like sh*t, so simple re-jet it (65-75 dollars) and it will be running like a charm again

95 DR 650 running rough

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of things to explore/consider and/or try:
  • compression test;
  • check/replace sparkplug;
  • check timing;
  • rebuilt carbs;
  • check for possible air/vacuum leak.
A remote possibility is the regulator causing an increase in voltage making the CDI erratic or shuts down in any RPM above idle.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
