To be picky I think they are $3 or $4 but I have had some dissolve, probably from ethanol . Guess I need to find the $1 variety. Found some for $7 http://www.jpcycles.com/product/720-...FcU7MgodlBQAmA

So far the DR has become my favorite choice of the two.
A good riding buddy did about 90K on his Wee Strom, lots of Mexico off road. His bike got very loose and sloppy feeling (when compared to brand New Wee Strom) But before he sold it he went though and replaced most all the bearings (steering head, swing arm, link and wheel) and refreshed suspension, front and rear (Wilbur shock). The bike was transformed, steered better, more stable, better handling. The motor and mechanicals never had any problems. AFAIK, his bike is still on the road and doing fine.

I might have one. I'm pretty sure I do, it just depends on if I can find it or not. I'll see if I can find it.

Hey frecks, while your looking for the chain guard and you come across a stock kickstand let me know I need one.

Well, I know where the stock kickstand is. It's on the bike at the moment. My plan is to try to turn the kickstand I get from trophyhunter into an adjustable length kickstand with some DIY work. If that works, then I'll have a regular length kickstand for you.

tl;dr version: If you can wait until I receive the kickstand from trophyhunter, then I will probably have a kickstand for you.

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

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.
