So, can you pack up the DR and head out camping? Yup.








Good times. http://dualsport-sd.com/forums/index.php?/topic/15551-barking-at-the-moon-and-other-festivitys/#entry150085

Hi guys,

Anyone have any experience or at least an opinion on these things:
LED Handguard thingys - supposedly DR650 specific.
Looks a little blingy, and I'm really asking whether it would be a pain in the ass to actually connect them. Also, people suggest any other handguards for the DR? The selection on ebay is small, at least when you search model specific.

Thanks,

Chris

Whether these are of any use depends on what you want them for. If you want a place to hang LED lights, they look useful. If you want hand guards, they look useless since they only have one mounting point and will very likely spin if hit. As far as I can tell, LED lights have no impact resistance.

I have the HDB Handguards with LED, and they work well. Pretty solid as well, judging by the number of times they have augured in to the ground.

AGM batteries for DR650

Hi Guys,

<2 year old battery in my DR failed yesterday. A friend told me the AGM batteries are more robust, and should last longer than the type I had which was a non-vented lead acid, where you charge the cells with electrolyte prior to installation and it's sealed from that point on...

Could you suggest a brand/part number of an Advanced Gas Mat (AGM) battery which has worked well for you?

Thanks,
Harry

FS: DR650 OEM fuel tank, blue

I don't know why I am keeping it - after I got my bigger tank, I must've been delusional that I would ever put this back on... if you want a stock tank for a DR650 (mine is 2005) - blue - no dents, dings, or whatver - I even have the stock petcock to go with it since I replaced my petcock with a raptor...

Drop a line - $200 seems reasonable (plus shipping if you aren't picking up in the Bay Area).

Man, conditions look dry as a chip there. You guys ready for your annual out of control fires? Keep an eye on those out of work fire bugs. Looks ripe for an arsonist.

How about a ride down to La Paz (and back) via Baja 1000 course? No trucks please. Lets see how those KTM's do on that ride!

I am new to the site and need advise....
I bought this bike 2 weeks ago it has 6700 miles on it, and it ran great for the first 85 miles. Then yesterday after about 1 mile of riding it started missing and when I *slowed down it died and would not start up. Just crank. After it cools off 30 minutes or so it starts and runs fine until it heats up. Then the whole process starts over again. I have drained the fuel and replaced with new fuel, straight gas no alcohol blend. No help. I did notice the exhaust coming out of the head became cherry red after running for about 2 minutes setting still? If the motor is cool it will start and run perfect.*
Any *ideas
