Thanks!
Judging by the picture it looks a little worn. So probably not for your 2013.

I bought a 2001 DR650 last night with 6400 miles on her. Completely stock.

Is there an index to this thread where I can find information on pipes, skid plates, jetting and such? 5000 pages is a lot to read!!!

In case anyone wondered how tough the chain guide is that Kientech sells......
It has about 25,000 miles on it. I ride 90% dirt, can you tell.







It kinda matches my skidplate over here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=790410

Yeah - really just go back 10 pages and then keep up. Topics repeat often but with new info each time as we all learn.

Yeah,when I first joined ADV,maybe 5 years ago? I was only looking for info on the KLR I was gonna get,a buddy had one,it seemed like the thing to do.

Then I stumbled onto the DR650 thread and was saved,I could tell right off a DR would suit me much better as a long time dirt rider.

I know those KLR's are more or less OK in a limited sort of way if you like that sort of thing. It wouldnt have suited me.

Out of curiousity, what chain size (520 or 525) and rear sprocket are you running? I notice you have it on the third hole down for the adjustment- mine came on the second hole.

I second your post though- mine looks beat up to the point im pretty sure I would have broke the stocker.

I am running 525 chain and a 45 tooth sprocket from Kientech. I have a new set ready to go on now.

Same. How many miles you get from the rear sprocket? My last 45 didn't last that long and I'm wondering if I should move to the bottom hole. I figured it was due to a chain issue I had in Alaska but I do notice the chain goes slightly up before it goes into the guide- I would think it should be completely straight.

I talked to Jesse about this and he said the second hole is fine with a 45 or even a 48 rear and that basically the bigger chain guide is only needed in 520 applications with 50+ rear sprockets or in rocky areas (why I bought it)
