Going to replace the clutch perch with a aftermarket from ASV. I'll keep the cable ball lubed, though...makes sense. I lubed the cables, but never the actual ball and socket. Funny...each time it started creaking a bit right before the pull that broke the cable's back!

You're right, the blue ones do look fast, but the '09s only came in black or white...but that's what I get for waiting so long to buy a DR! Still better colour choices than a KLR...or a Model T
I have a DR650. Sometimes I clean it. Under the dust it's black...
