Hi all, I just picked up an old 91 DR650, couldn't pass it up, and after a good day of riding Im really happy I did, its a fun bike to say the least. I've crawled through the engine today as well to try to figure out all the mods/adjustments that have been done to it, and unfortunately I'd say its been owned by some creative mechs over the years, with missing vacuum lines, cut wires ect. So it will take me a while to figure out why and what.

I'm going to take it to a shop this week, (a guy I have used locally for years) just to give it a GOOD look over. Any other suggestions would be great, forums to read (besides this one if course) what to look for, common DR aging problems,

My only problem with the bike is starting it cold,, takes a good bit, probably about 1-2 minutes,, once its running it starts 1st or 2nd kick, So that's first on my list of things to figure out & fix.
