anyone knw if this is normal? or what should I look for if isn't?

I just put a new battery on it and the previous owner replaced the rectifier and rewound the stator

I am just about to take the side covers... off check the balancer chain replace gaskets
bleed the brakes...see where that gets me

I can't say I can offer much info but I guess we can learn together
keep me posted on your progress

Indeed we can, and indeed we shall.
PM'd the mods about merging/retitling the DR650S (pre-96) threads we've been posting in. If nothing else we can gather here.
Thank you toolfan for bumping this.

Thanks much,

P.P.S. While the idea isn't to compete with "The DR650 Thread" - I've been trying to get info on the older model of DR650, and almost everything in "The DR650 Thread" is about the DR650SE - and doesn't apply to the pre-'96 bikes.
