I've got Moose Racing handguards. They will pay for themselves in saved levers. Also you don't want to break your master cylinder for the front brake. spensiv

Had my 2003 DR for 6 happy months now. Tried the XT600E, The KLR650 and the WeeStrom, but this bike seems to fit me like a glove and will be my dirty love-slave. Had to do the new base gasket at 3000 miles, but it is now leak-free. Have Progressive upgrade springs, grip heater kit, and the Jesse idle screw to add to it - but that's happening before Buena Vista.



So- recently I put on some new MT21's and took it into some loose stuff. I've noticed that I need to gear down (like everybody has said) in order to climb without lugging the motor too much. If I change to the 14-tooth primary sproket, can I just reset the chain tension adjuster, or do I need to pull a link from the drive chain? Anyone? This thread is great, by the way...big ups to everyone for keeping it going!

You can get the suzuki rack and the pelican cases perhaps - do a search?

DR's must be punished.

I installed a 14 tooth front in place of the 15 and still have a lot of adjustment left on the stock chain. The pulls nicely up hills but will still cruise all day at 70 with quite a bit of speed left in reserve.

Wombat I have a 1550 pelican box on mine. They come in smaller sizes are pretty reasonably priced. They're also almost indestructible. I just drilled 4 holes in the bottom and bolted it to my rear rack using SS hardware and large SS fender washers top & bottom. You have to use a pad lock but for the money and beating they take it's a good option. You can kind of see what it looks like in the picture on page 3 of this post. I added 4 bungie buddies so I can strap stuff to the top.

As far as handgaurds I'm running the EMGO pro version.

Getting my DR650 today

I've been riding dual sports since 1972, most of them have been Yamaha two strokes. Sold my DT250 on Friday and I'm picking up my new 2006 DR650 (blue) this morning - I am excited. I was considering a KLR for a long time, but I started doing a lot of reading and research which pretty much convinced me to go with the DR. Then I did a group dual sport ride in March and saw in person that the DRs did better than the KLRs in the dirt, talked with the DR owners and they were a happy bunch.

I'll post a pic after I bring her home.

davorallyfan bag

Hey davorallyfan are those the yukon bags from Moto-sport on your DR? If so how do you like them and how long have you been running them? If they're not what are they?
Thanks,
DS

My brand new DR650

I just took delivery of her today, with 1 mile on the clock. Had a nice ride home, she is very torquey and fun to ride - I believe I am going to enjoy this one a lot.
