http://www.racetech.com/ has every thing springs internal parts, ect the dr650 shock is not as good as the drz250 shock also the dr650 96 up fork springs will work in the drz250
i learned this after a bought a drz400 forks

keep us in the loop on how it goes

btw dr650 pegs are the same too

would any one out there know what fork brace fits the drz250?

ive tried the dr350 tank

i purchased a clarke 15L or 4.something gallon tank. the tank is alot wider around the frame and i ended up sorting that out with some thick rubber cable tied to the frame, as there it rubs on the oil cooler. its alot wider at the lower mounting points and i made a couple of shonky brackets to hold it in place, but they eventually started to crack so i put the original tank back.

it also only has one petcock mounting which sucked as there was always fuel in the lower right hand side when the left was nearly empty.
I was looking at the XR250 tank last night and was tossing up weather to but one but I want to see more pics of the tank from diff angles and figure out how id mount it. but im thinking of getting a Nomad 4L tank which i can mount on the rear off the bike.
i read that a arcerbis dr 650 tank will fit but requires a fit bit of modification.
Sorry bout the novel but i just like talking bout my bike
