Thumb I am very happy with the crash bars heavy duty.

Ordered a stock shorter side stand from Amazon, and a 14T front sprocket from Ebay.

I picked up a Moose tailbag while I was at the dealership, and realized that to mount it I will either need to drill 4 holes in the rear fender, or buy an aftermarket rack... Still haven't decided which route to take on that one.

You really need to ask your questions over at the 90-95 DR650 thread that Rusty posted a link to. Few of us folks around here know anything about them. They are a completely different animal from the 96 - current model.

Front Sprocket

Any idea what could possibly cause a front sprocket to remove itself from the driveshaft? 2011 model with 3500 miles, stock gearing and no work done on the drive train other than chain adjustments and cleaning/lubing.

The retaining clip was in tact and all three bolts were in place and snug. There is nothing I can think of that would allow it to come off without the bolts/retaining clip coming off.

Was just in the shop to have the valves checked but I can't imagine that would have anything to do with it.

Retaining clip or retaining plate? If you still have the retaining plate, it was still attached to the sprocket and there are still teeth on the I.D. of the plate: I have no idea how it came off.
Got a pic?

Edit: Has the sprocket been replaced, did you buy the bike new? There's a groove cut in the end of the shaft for the retaining plate to twist into. If it wasn't far enough on the shaft, there wouldn't be anything to keep the sprocket from sliding off the end of the shaft.

Clip:


Plate:


A ProCycle retaining plate, showing the I.D. teeth used to interlock the sprocket to the shaft.

DR 650 ignition

Anyone have a spare ignition key switch (with key) that will fit a 2007 DR650? Or know of a good deal on one?

Thanks...

I have their rotopax rear rack and side racks and I am very happy with them. Got free shipping when I purchased them from Dirtracks via ebay.

My Wolfman bags hook up nicely using their universal hook/loop D-ring straps.

How does one buy a new dualsport and only ride it 6K miles in 15 yrs? Somebody on here showed one a while back that was something like a '96 DR with less than 500 miles on it. I ride over 500 miles on just a weekend sometimes, and can't wait to do it again.

I hear you. Baffles me too

**edit** You know, that is a stupid good deal. I think that's the best deal I've ever seen on a dr650 ever. Check the valves, change the oil, make sure it has a starter clutch. Bam, 1400 and 2 hours has got you a bike that will prolly do 50k more without issues. Lucky!

I paid 3400 for mine with 700 more miles on it, though it is a 2008. That's an average deal- not expensive (especially not in my area), not cheap. That buy is a STEAL.

I know the newer motors run synthetic from the factory, but the DR is an older donk and perhaps this rule of thumb still applies?
Yep 500 miles. I just have the old fashioned 15-40 rotella. Wasn't planing on synthetic. I know I might be wrong and old fashioned I just don't like the idea of synthetic on my clutch plates. I know a lot of people run it with good results.
