After-market GRIPS on a DR650 rock.

My DR650's got all the extra's. But probably the thing I like most are the after-market handle grips. The standard one's are bloody shit. But the ones I got are soft and nice. Make a markable difference in comfort levels

I ride around Perth, Western Australia, so if any of you NZ are interested in working here you can watch my youtube videos. Though the employment situation is not as good as was a year and a bit ago. Actually employment is very slow and stagnant atm.

Pitty the US didnt default on its debt. That would be a good thing as house prices would fall making them drop to where the should be - AFFORDABLE.

circlip for sprocket

Anyone know where a circlip can be sourced in Australia for the front sprocket?

I've had a good search around the net but nothing local??

thanks

hav to wonder why you'd want to go with a clip rather than the plate and bolt set up?
the bolts are solid and i've never had any fall out.

I'll probably use a combination of both. I use a 13 tooth and the chain hits it. I know I can grind the retainer down but, well.....you know.

I will only use the clip on the 13 tooth and there isn't a surprising amount of lateral force on the clip/reainter, as the rear sprocket in reality keeps it aligned and falling off the spline.

Plus, clip is quicker to change off and used alot on DR350's.

Tha's all I've got.

I will give them ago (another bearing shop).

But started out and went to local Suzuki dealer, no, try bearing shop, went to bearing shop, no try specialst engine repairer......haven't tried there yet. I think I can order from the states. Will see.


I may just buy a second retainer plate and grind that one down for the 13 tooth sprocket (ruff stuff) and keep the main one for the 15 tooth sprocket (highway travels).

something old from Cape York. my first "big" ride on the DR. 3000km sydney to cairns in 4 days then change tires and into the dirt. i met the guys in the pajero while i was up there and they filmed everything and even carried the backpack i had mounted on the rack for the telegraph track. you meet the best people in the most remote locations

Are the conditions of the track better or worse. I'm thinking of going up next May ( or there abouts) but not sure if I will go the Old Telegraph Track or not. Probably go the other way, which apparenlty is easier??

Good Vid Black Cap - You were keen to do some of those tracks by yourself, although you eventually had some sort of support.

on ya

cape york track condition

The condition of the tracks are generally worse - mostly the entry/ exists of creeks. Not a problem for a bike , though. However I expect even MORE water to be around (than video) in May , possibly making all the good tracks impassable. The condition of the main development road is better . ( bitumen in some parts) . We rode the CREB track (red clay) , Starke track (alot of sand/ bulldust) , Frenchmans track (Pascoe river crossing), Old Telly Track and Maytown track self supported and loved it ! It`s an awesome place.
