There seems to be a lot of vitriol on the 'other' DR650 thread right now. I've owned my DR for about nine months. I haven't had a chance to even take it for a ride yet. I tore it apart to have the frame powder-coated, discovered my carburetor needed a total overhaul, did that and then my mother-in law passed away (helping my wife and bother-in-law deal with that sucked up a lot of my free time since). It's back together now but I need to run it on the dyno to ensure the carb is properly adjusted (at least I would prefer to do it that way).

I used the other thread to see if I needed to do anything else while it was completely apart. But, it was quite a slog, at times. A few other inmates, that frequent the 'other' DR650 thread, have expressed similar feelings; too much piss/moan/bitch.

I would hope to have my DR on the road again soon and will be happy to post up some pictures as soon as it sees daylight.
