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.

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.

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!

Spring is here and I'm finally going to set up my DR for some longer rides.

So, which tank should I get, the IMS or the Acerbis? The IMS is only 4.9 gallons where the Acerbis is 5.3 gal.

Anyone have any opinions on which is better (mounts easier, works with stock seat better, etc...)?

The Acerbis is said to be of better quality and fit.

One of the differences is the surface finish. The IMS is smooth and shiny, which may be easier to wipe clean. Although I've never seen one, anytime someone's photo catches the glossy surface, it isn't very even, sorta like a poor paint job. IMO

The Acerbis has a matte finish with a light surface texture, which may be harder to keep clean. Mine took exactly 5 gallons to fill, right up to the base of the fill neck. I'm still on the first tank so I don't know if it will expand as it ages. I don't care, 5 gallons gets me past the 'crap, I need gas again'. The stock location of the turn signals won't work, but are easy to relocate using the stock brackets.

My Suzuki gel seat fits both the stock tank and the Acerbis. My stock tank Corbin also fits against the tank nicely, although I'll have to move the brackets back about 3/4".

I was very unhappy with my IMS,stained too easy, cap leaked, too much gas remaining in right side. I am extremely please with my Safari tank. Stock, Sargent, and Seat Concepts all fit Safari well.
