DisTech's DR650 rebuild

Hello!

Thanks to everyone that contributes to the forums at advrider.com. I've learned a lot here and hope my contribution is not boring.

The goals of this project:
1. Buy 96+ DR650 for $2000 or less.
2. Strip it, then rebuild/reassemble with easily attainable items.
3. A resulting DR650 that is arguably better than a new one and cost less.

Let's begin. There were a lot of people selling newer DR650's for too much at the end of summer. Finally in November on craigslist a one owner 96 with 6800 miles for $2000 in Portland. The wife and I drove down and got it the next Saturday. We stayed at the Hotel Monaco in Portland and came back on Sunday. I felt out of place riding the DR into the underground parking at the Monaco, but was pleasantly surpised at the croud it drew. It seemed all the attendants had DR stories of thier own. The ride back was sunny and the bike ran great. Here she is in all here purple (cringe), yellow and white splendor.
