Both ver's of your scoot are badass! Those Suzuki stickers on the plastic tank, are they fuel proof? Are they holding up? If so, where did you get them?

Yater, nice! Are you using RAM mounts for your GPS? If so, which base ball mount did you use? thanks..

I'm not sure I know what the hell that means. Yes, that's a ram mount. I got it on a last minute overnight whim from cycloactive the day before a trip. I don't remember having a choice of "base ball". It uses the U-bolts to fasten to the bars. Customer service from cycloactive is top notch by the way....and the ram mount has been flawless (even after several ghost rides in the ozarks)

I just did a search for these parts at BikeBandit.
The rear fender and front fairing came up as discontinued.
The rest are still available.

To be honest the tank stickers have only been on there for one day so I've yet to see how they'll hold up. I got them from ebay and they are thick vinyl stickers meant for your front fender.

Does anyone know approx. how loud that Staintune full system is, compared to my FMF Q slip-on, and where to get one in the US?

I have had first the FMQ which was too loud for me. Now I have the full system Staintune which is much quieter and lighter.

Yes, I was asking about the handle bar side of the mount. I just put my S06 w/s back on last night so I'm going to have to re-think which mount is going to work. I have a radar detector and am looking at a portable gps, along with an Ipod...

Hey Bill, I was wondering if you put the windshield back on yet. Have you tried it out yet with it raked back?

I got the w/s on last night and went around the block, not enough to really try it out. I caged it today, but tomorrow I'll be riding. If nothing else, it looks cool..

I have just purchased a new DR650. I am still in the break-in process, only have about 560 miles on it. I have a KLR650 I'm now selling that I purchased new in 7/2002. I really like how the DR650 handles & feels under me. Dry weight is only 13 lbs. less than the KLR650, but it feels a lot lighter I think because it carries its weight lower. The DR650 is designed & built a lot better. The KLR has a few issues that need to be taken care of. What I like about the DR650 is its reliability & simple design. The engine is air & oil cooled which eliminates all the problems & weight of water-cooling. The KLR650 does come stock with a larger fuel tank, 6.1 gallons (only about 5.3 usable though) compared to the DR's 3.4 gallon tank. There are after market larger tanks available though. Both the DR & KLR have bad seats for long distance riding. The KLR is said by some to be a better at long distance touring. I don't agree with that though & feel the DR can be set up to do long distance touring with no problem. There are lots of people on this & other sites that have done serious long rides on the DR650. The DR is definitely an under rated bike that is very capable. Do your research before making a chose.
