I believe that's a large white decal on the headlight cowl. I put a Acerbis headlight on my KLX and it came with a big white decal that looks just like the above pic.

Correct. It was stock on the 2007 DR. Should be able to order it.


Edit: Looks like it's on the 06 as well -- and maybe some other years too

Yeah... I'll paint it myself - I'm not paying $40 for a piece of tape

Or if anyone has one that they havent used, I'll take that. I'll give you a fair price

Yea... Literally just broke off. It was the strangest thing, I wasn't even touching it, it just fell. I think the previous owner might have glued it. It seems to have some residue on it.

So my bike is an hour away and I am trying to buy some clear hose on amazon that will fit on the bleeder valve but I don't know what diameter hose will fit on the caliper... Does no one know or can measure?

Clutch basket nut

So I stupidly thought I could do the NSU screws without mishap, but of course I was wrong. I am in the process of putting things back together, and realize that I don't know how tight the bolt that holds the basket on should be. Should there be any freeplay when pushing the basket back and forth on the shaft? If so how much? Thanks.

Long before I get to 36# the plate holder will no longer free wheel. Maybe I am doing something else wrong.

Sorry to have bothered everyone. I went to the parts diagram, then went to the shop, and found the missing washer, now it works fine. The bike is a 2008 with 6000 miles and the NSU screws came loose with only very minimal pressure. Thanks again.

Broken Header Pipe - Only 6K miles

'09 DR650 just turned 6K miles today and about 20 miles from home exhaust got a little bit louder. About 10 miles got a whole lot louder. Figured it was a crack somewhere on the head pipe as that where the sound was coming from.

Thought about stopping and worried a little about doing engine damage but had no other way to get home so babied it the last 10 miles.

WTF! The head pipe is broken clean off at the flange where it bolts up and there is about 1/2" gap 360 degrees, actually looks like someone cut it off with a rough blade hacksaw.

Is this a common occurence?

Only motor mods are opened up breather box with DT-1 air filter, Pro-Cycle jet kit, and GSXR1000 muffler with Kientech mid-pipe on OEM header.

Anyone have a spare oem header or is there a better option.
