The one thing I noticed on your bike is that it doesn't have any fork protection except those ludicrous shields. You'd be better off putting gaiters back on. The yellow ones are a nice touch. ;)

In my experience those yellow gaters get pretty dirty but maybe new ones would be OK. Fork skins are another option.

Renazco Racing, hands down the most comfortable. It's a true CUSTOM seat.

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.
