I feel well armed now and will be making that purchase soon...
Doing a bit of upholstery work would be a snap...
drriders sounds like a good place to be too...

Yeah, lot's of good folks there, too. I bounce between here, drriders, and klrworld. Even though it's KLRworld, the southeast forum is really active and has some great members, so since I'm in the southeast (Georgia) it's a good place to hang. They welcome all makes and models. I was at a KLR rally last weekend at Tellico Plains TN and there were a lot of DRs there. Had a blast.

There was a good post with pictures of the Seat Concepts seat on the big thread. Did you see it?

I'm going to revive the DR Accessory thread and will work to get it up to date as quickly as possible. If you have anything to add or any suggestions, please feel free to post them here and I'll try and incorporate everything into the first post so it's easy to find things.

I'll start with a makeover for the main post and verify all the old info. I'm sure there are some things that are no longer available, broken links, and errors to attend to. Then I'll start to add things as I run across them.

I hope this will be useful, and as long as there is interest and value to this thread I'll try and keep it going!

Enjoy

Thanks so much for taking this on again!
It really should be attached to the forum index section in Thumpers or somehow made a sticky. No idea how to make that happen.

Great info and gives riders alternatives to Pro Cycle, who now seem to have a monopoly on ALL DR accessories.

I'd love to break out some common categories and do price comparisons. It's amazing what one can find if you look around. I've found several Suzuki OEM parts going cheaper than Pro Cycle's versions ... like Sprockets, brake pads, bearings and more.

Maybe focus on MOST COMMONLY USED maintenance items:

Brake Pads
Cables
Bearings (head, link, swing arm and wheel)
Levers
Mirrors
Tires
Tubes
Chain and Sprockets
Batteries
Spark Plugs (specifically Iridium)
Carb parts (Carb Kits, O rings, Jets, Needles)

Bling and Farkles can come later.


The lowering links just posted in the big DR thread is just another example of this. The Pro Cycle lowering links are $70 ... the Burkhart's are $21.
Sorry, I just don't need Billet lowering links!

I'll post what I can when I find it.

O'Reilly's carries the Deka batteries and stocks the ETX9 for the DR:

Rocky Mtn now offers oem parts and seems to carry a good stock for the DR from what I've seen so far:

Thanks for the tip that the Deka batteries are available from O'Reilly! I've added a section for Battery/Electrical.

I'll also add a section for OEM parts online.

I've seen some good prices from Powersports Plus, too.
