1996 through 2013 are all the same, so you've got a wide availability. Can't help with sourcing though, someone will be along in a minute.

The good news is you've got probably as much chance of it happening as winning the lottery.
Mine has almost 30,000km now. I'm getting into the zone. I don't buy lottery tickets so maybe I'll be okay with the DR too :)

Steph, if you're really concerned, there is a thread concerning the issue. I think it's entitled "DR650 3rd Gear Blow-ups" or something similar.

I checked all the stuff, cush rubbers looked good, bearings feel fine, fr sprocket is tight on the shaft. mounting bolts are all tight, no cracks anywhere
I guess my friend is just gonna get a numb ass this week.

I'm leading a 1k mile trip thru Bulgaria & Romania, most days will be 200 or so miles on small roads, so it shouldnt be that bad.

Thanks for the ideas tho!

Doug

Hi Zdiver1

Here's a 320 EBC on my DR. Make sure the clamp at the arrow is secure, if the brake line slips down, the rotor will cut it. This happened to some guys when adding stainless brake lines.

Thanks, I'll check it out.

We sold the Beemers recently and have just the pair of DRs right now. A third one is planned a bit later this summer when the intial spring buying frenzy is over. Emmbeedee's bike has almost 50K kms on it now and we want to find him a 'newer' one with lower mileage. Then the Purple Passion will become the emergency backup and guest bike

Third gear blowups are not going to keep me awake at night... in fact, now that the Beemers are gone, I sleep much better knowing I won't have to worry about onboard computers, fuel injection, abs, or expensive side panels.

As I was riding the DR the other day I thought of a tagline:

"It's not how much you pay for it; it's how much fun you get out of it that counts"

I find it funny that when travelling on BMW F series bikes, often the only people who'll stop and talk to you are on the same model. R owners tend to look down on the F, probably because the F can go anywhere the R can, but more cheaply. Harley riders don't talk to BMW riders, afaik.

But on the DR, anyone talks to you! Women in minivans, other bike riders, old people, young people. It's amazing.

Grifter, ER70S, Jayhawk, et al locals - I can pay in beer and whiskey so you won't have to pay taxes on it.
Thanks guys - I will look around. Flag & southern CO are easiest for me. Grifter: nothings wrong. More looking ahead when I start breaking stuff. But I would like to find a shop or person that can fabricate or teach me how to put together dashboard type stuff - not exactly sure what yet besides a couple 12 volts.

I have the SS Lines and I think you have my stock lines! It looks close with the stock rotor so I will have to make sure it is tight. Paul
