Can't advice on registration (I think somebody on forum registered DR in US) but as for parts - if I start writing lis of parts from DR600-650-GSes-various bikes that are interchangeable with DR it will be 5 pages :) leaving aside fact that CMSNL.COM can supply you any stock original parts for DRs and they ship worldwide no probs.
Crabs - GS500
Front caliper (it made of chewing gum but anyway) - GPZ900, the old one, older GS500
Bearings - just all of them available for other bikes.
Front forks and parts - DR600. Same goes for wheels and lot of other parts (same with DR600).
shall I continue?
