Yeah, that and hand guards are the only things I miss on the bike...how should I ebay the fork guards, dr specific or universal?

I would expect quick/sensitive low speed response on the throttle for any dual sport which is what you would need offroad.

Any ideas? Could this be a throttle adjustment setting? Jetting? front sprocket? I honestly wouldn't know which of these would cause this. I searched this thread for 'throttle response,' but all the comments are all over the map and I just don't know the root cause.
How many miles are there on the carb?

Regards,

Derek

Thjis is what I put on mine

I have the same bike (1996) and it looks better with the black boots in my opinion.

Be sure to get the series 69 the others are goofy looking. Hope they are available in your area.

Warp 9 levers!!!

These are awesome. I just put on the brake side and i'll work on the clutch side later. These have that very high end feel to them and provide that much needed lever position adjustment. Warp 9 includes a new perch replacement bolt plus a sweet new end cap for the brake assy clamp on the bar.

The lever is all CNC'd alum. and has a lot of attention to detail. The lever even folds back in case of a crash. Warp 9 has done a great service by producing these when no other option was available. IMO a must do for every DR owner!

I've adjusted them perfect for my shorter fingers for effortless 2 finger stops. If any of you have use high end Shimano or other MTB brake levers, these have that 2 finger perfect control feel to them. They are also shorter than stock for those handguard clearance issues.

Just wanted to make a pitch for a sprocket I am selling over in the flea market.


30 bucks shipped. New in packaging. Make your DR650 gearing more usable.

Shipped USPS.

Nice personal review of the levers!
I liked them when first released but the price was out of my consideration.
Now with the drastically reduced prices they are back on my list.
Glad to hear your positive comments.

2 days south of the US border now, heading home.

We're back up in the Sierra Madre Occidental near Copper Canyon.
Cold mornings.



I'm not the only one waiting for it to warm up. Sound asleep, waiting on the sun.



Better now, let's ride a little dirt road and take a look at the Valley of the Monks.







More on the tire report (Heidenau k60 front at 6000 miles) Nice tire, wearing well.



Rear tire: MEFO 99 explorer (6,000 miles). Just starting to square off, but lots of tread left.



DR650 having some fun in Mexico!
