Well done mate.
From the pics it looks like its done no off road work.

Shame about the big hole in the frame.

When i was ringing around the wreckers yards looking for an engine i got basically the same story from all of them and that was the dr650 was such good motor everyone wanted it for buggy and kart projects.
They get them in but there gone real quick.

I did find one in nsw it was out of a burnt out dr it had melted engine cases and the head was screwed but he still wanted $950 for it.

Have you thought about finding a freewind engine as i think there the same as the dr apart from the head supposedly they have bigger valves to suit there twin carbs.

Not sure how id go with a different engine in regards to registering the thing back on the road, they are pretty funny about stuff like that.

Im either going to make an identical twin of what im building now or a mad street thrasher (with an extreme engine) sort of an EVIL street twin

One things for certain, my build just became a little longer

Mezo.
Yea well I'm fresh out of ideas for my build so i may as well stick my nose in hear.
How does it work in regards to registration when you go to register the bike and it's frame and engine number dont match up. Do you have to have proof of purchase of the engine as well as the bike.

I'm about to find this out over here as mine has been re-engined too.

Wink proof of pucrchase

i rebuilt a CRX coupe once and fitted a new engine here in Vic and all they's wanted was proof of purchase. I imagine she'll be right.

How are the swingarm & cusion bearings Meez? If they're like new, perhaps you want to name a price?

I don't know how much of an effect the 5mm longer shock will have on the actual rear height, but it might just balance out the longer front forks. If your WPs also have 305mm travel they should be 25mm longer than stock.

Time to get out the tape measure!

C'mon Mezo, PINK is you!!

Mezo, you've just 'fessed up that you know about the Blue Oyster Bar so what's the big deal about a HOT PINK bike!?
You can just see all the bystanders "It's .... it's .....it's MEZO ON A HOT PINK BIKE!!!!!"

But those of us that know you would simply think "Ah, that's our Mezo. Too cool for school"

Keep up the good work and the equally entertaining thread.

Exile? ah Seeking Zero, good of you to cross post your DR650 Stator Rewind

Im going to stick with original plan of white on bike 1, and if i can`t think of a better design for the second ill do it white as well, the thought of a matching pair appeals to me for some reason or just to have a spare white frame if i don't build two bikes.

No physical progress because no money in pockets right now, i build this project as funds allow & right now they don't allow it, no work at moment

I have secured a barell from Lukas, and that is now in Jeffs hands at Proycycle ready to get its new sleeve (725cc).

So just subscribe to the thread, it will get done im 100% sure of that.

Mezo.

Looking to buy a DR, lots of great info. Will we see the 720 kit soon, I'm 250 so more power is a good thing.
