Hey guys,

Wel after doing my inspection of the new to me DR found the rear chain guide is broken almost in 2 pieces. Looks like someone at one point tried to glue it back together.
How makes a suitable one for the DR. Looking back saw where some people have had issues with some not working correctly.

Also what color rear spring was on the 2003 model. I'm trying to find out if it has been changed.

Ray

Yes, a pure essence.

I never rode with a sheepskin and wouldn't for personal reasons.But I swear by beaded seats. In the summer my BeadRider is a lifesaver, with a bit of air flowing down there. It adds a good few hundred miles a day on any bike imo. I did a two-week Canada loop and got back this weekend. No real long days, i think the longest was 650-700 but with my Seat Concepts and beaded cover my ass was never an issue.

Both ProCycle and Kientec have rear chain guides, I don't know if either has a problem.

My 2004 had a stock white spring and the new 7.5. If you can see on yours, to count the coils, it will help as both springs in the pic use the same diameter wire (fewer coils = stiffer).

You mean actual Barkbusters, from Australia? They sure look like the VPS model of Barkbusters (the actual brand), made in Australia. I have Barkbusters (brand) bark busters. Mine too are the VPS model.

I've been accumulating farkles but my bike is so pretty, IMHO, that I can't bring myself to install any of them.

Good looking and functional seem to be at odds with the DR650. But I'm headed for functional...

"You one ugly mother f*cker" said Schwarzenegger to Predator.
"You one uggglllyyy mothuf*cker" said Bike rider to his safari decked out DR650.

My dr650 looks like Michael Jackson. The only thing that makes it look any good is me when I sit on it. Why? Bacause Im wearing a good alpine star blue and white jacket, nice white helmet and proper adventure hyper-tex pants. Even then it all still look like a lego set with pieces missing lol
