Yeah, I know.......... but I'm really excited about getting my favourite bike back. So I've been digging out old photos of it.














P.S. Thanks for your comment, MCmad!

Eh? another sprocket question!

a few weeks ago i posted a question about sprockets, after a while i ended buying a dr650se front sprocket the 525 chain, but the rear has been a pain to get, the dr650se rear fits, but it has 42 t so, i am afraid of loosing power whit that, here comes the question, where in America can i get a sprocket to fit my dr800s? thanks for any wisdom regarding this topic

It's not a big problem to run the 525 chain on a 520 rear sprocket. You can find these for the pre-96 DR650 in the USA with various tooth numbers.

I thing BikeBandit also has them on close=out sale so they are particularly cheap right now.

You can also find a frienly machinist to take 2mm per side off your 525 CS sprocket for a few dollars thereby allowing you to run the 520 chain if you want.

Long time no see

Greetings from Finland.
Finnish police has started to control exhaus noises. When they hear noisy motorcycle they stop it and measure exhaust db and if result is too much they take licenseplate off and you have to register your bike again with original exhaust.

Its nice new law if you have DR800 with Laser Produro "not for road use" version.....

Does anyone know what is the DB with this combo. If i understood right the max you are allowed is 103db.

Greetings, Tas

What windscreen is that?

Around here we try to stay out of those ruts since they tend to go downhill and become creeks and then rivers. Difficult to get out of.

I thought it might be that screen.

It's good to know it can be done.

Thanks

A question for those in the Big know.

I did my first real ride on my 1990 800 Big today.

I rode close to 600kms of highway with only about 40kms of city. Fuel mileage wasn't what I would have expected with an average of 7.5l / 100kms. My ktm 950 gets about 6.5 and klrs are closer to 5.
Would mileage be better if I geared it up as I"m running about 4750 rpm at 120kph.

I'll be doing a 3-4000 km trip in july with it so I'd like to get it sorted before then.

The bike did run very well and smooth though even though it was only about 3C brrr. Happy with it so far.

Thanks in advance.
