For almost the same price you can get a Husqvarna 610 (TE or SM) which has more horsepower, a 6 speed transmission, better suspension, EFI (2008+), 310 pounds or so, etc.

By the way I am planning on selling my 2008 SM610

DR650 with a pumper and proper setup is more potent that you'd think...that's what I did to the one I had, and it was a hoot afterwards.

I remember when pumper carbs were the disdain of motorcycling. What changed?

Yes. It was an insinuation that some people are slower at accepting modern technology than others. Many feel the pumper carb is a great upgrade for the DR350 also.

And we all know a proper carb is better that any CV.

But my response was based on this.

I'm old enough to remember working in my parents BMW dealership when the R90S came out. It had Dellorto pumper carbs. Great for the day. Who can deny shoving gas into a combustion chamber?

But that was circa '74. Take it up with Kevin Cameron

Yep, you probably can but... you probably need to change the cam chain early and often.
