The 1996+ DR650 and XF650 wheels use the same hubs, so are interchangeable. The XF650 front wheel has a bigger diameter brake rotor, but because the hubs are the same a XF650 rotor can be mounted on...

I put the YFZ clutch in mine, but not until it had travelled 12,000km, so it may have been too late to make a difference. However, it appears to be a selector/engagement issue rather than a gear...

My 05 WR450 has lost 5th gear. The shift lever works but the gear fails to select. My research on the subject (on the net) suggests that it is a fairly common failure on WRs - especially on bikes...

Well spotted. You obviously know the GR - not many do.

The stock single disc arrangement was woeful. The forks and extra disc/caliper are off an early 80s GS650 (GS550 and GS750 forks/brakes...

I have two of them.

There are two versions - differentiated by the angle of off-set of the crankpin. The US & Japanese market version has a 45 degree crankpin off-set. The rest-of-the world has...

I use a 1"x1" wooden stick. Mine is a piece of rough sawn 1" garden stake. Cost - about 50 cents. It will slide comfortably (without a lot of clearance) inside the fork tube. A few taps on the end...

Here's one that neither the US, UK nor Australia got. Japan, continental Europe and New Zealand only I believe. Its a GSX1200. I believe the UK got the 750 version, but not the 1200.

I hope they have gone back to the higher routing of pipes on the SM. After-all if it workks on the Adv why not the SM? Also, I would prefer putting dirt wheels on the SM rather than road wheels on...

Why can't we have just one 950 with an interchangeable set of wheels for dirt or road? From what I can see the under-the-engine routing of the exhaust pipe on the SM is a drawback for the dirt,...

19" front wheel is a drawback for off-the-seal work. Could possibly be retrofitted, however I notice there is a fork brace thingy that might be problematic.
