14 tooth front

Got some stuff from procyle the other day and found time to get outside and play with the DR650. Put the 14 tooth front sprocket on and while in there put that seal retainer thing on it too. Even used locktite blue like I was supposed to. Adjusted the chain and fired it up. REMIND SELF TO GET NEW BATTERY. Its on its last legs even on trickle charger.
Took the bike for about a 5 mile run out back through the garden across the pasture through the woods across the creek and back. Absolutely love the difference in the way the bike runs with the 14t sprocket. Doesn't lug down at slow speed in first gear and is way easier to manage.
Soon as I get my mid pipe from Klientech I'll be posting about the X40FO hook up. Hope to see that before the week is out.

Loved every minute of it.

Got an opportunity to get a bigger bike and a friends dad make me an offer I can't pass up. So I'm sorry to see her go after a short time together here it goes.

09 DR650

SW Center Stand, Cycra Handguards, MRA Windshield, Epic Panniers, Hyper Lites, Renthal Bars, Acewell Digital Speedo, Seat Concepts upgrade, Smash Plate, Pelican Top Box (maybe), EBC pads, FMF exhaust, thousands of miles left on tires, recent oil and filter change. To much more to mention but you get the concept. Right at 8800 miles. Pics to follow.....located in West Point, Virginia, 30 miles east of Richmond. Got it out there on CL for $4700 but I'll give an inmate discount!! PM for any interest.

Searching for a source for '96 DR650SE purple frame touch-up paint?

Does anyone know of a source for the purple frame paint used on the 1996 Suzuki DR650SE and other models of that era? ColorRite.com only shows Code 30H-Special White-4037 available for the 1996 model, which would have been for the white fuel tank, rear rack, etc..

Clean plates with oil, wipe off very well. Soak plates in clean oil for 2 - 3 hours before install. DO NOT use synthetic oil in new engine.

I would be more worried about metal bits still inside the engine, oil lines, Oil pump, oil cooler/hoses. Flush it all out a couple times with cheap oil or oil and Kerosene mix before running. Do an Engine oil and filter change after 20 miles. (to be safe). Another at 200 miles. Best of luck ... but luck won't help really. Get a pro to help out.
Amen to that brother lol

Broke my chain guard and found a CB550 Honda chain guard fits great but is a little long. Tin snips cut it to length and got it cheap at a bike wrecking yard. Much heavier duty plastic and metal lined and the mounting holes lined up perfectly.

Factory gaiters are the ticket, in my opinion. I used skins on another bike and they are plenty nice, but you have to take care to install them securely in order to keep them in place and check them frequently to make sure they haven't slipped. With factory gaiters you're good to go.
