I've heard good things about those...but they never seem to be in stock when it comes time for me to order tires.

I was ordering a gasket so I can adjust my balance shaft chain(got a case of the "caginga-gingas"at idle) and saw them on BikeBandit(unfortunate name for a company I think) for dirt cheap,don't even care how quick they get here but it shows them being shipped already,it's my gasket and horn that are on backorder.They have a paddle type tread that won't likely last long on a 650 but may provide decent off-road traction.At least d/s tires are a breeze to change so I can do it often if the tires cheap.

I gots a Ford Explorer front shock modified to fit the back of my DRit "aided" the ride compared to the completely blown stocker and only cost about 25 bucks plus welding wire...


Why not investigate putting a FCR carb onto the DR? That's what the late model guys do who want snappier performance,I don't think jacking with the stock carb will get you much.

Yeah Bike Bandit has always gotten tires to me in 2 days or less....other parts take up to 2 weeks though.

btw....you don't need a gasket for those side covers. Use "high torque rtv" (gray) just run a thin bead and tighten fully with no waiting or re-tightening....

I've never had the stuff leak and it comes apart easy too when you go back in .

I agree with no new gasket necessary for the side cover. I took mine off twice last year to adjust the chain and even with the original gasket torn a little, some RT sealed it fine.

Save the new gasket when it finally gets here for a spare.

I replaced the tires on my 91 when I got it last year with the Kenda 270s. The front was easy to change myself, but I couldn't break the bead on the rear even with a vise. I took it to a buddy with a tire changer and even he had trouble but got it done. Good luck on yours.

I know that I don't need to use a gasket,I just prefer to,she's an old girl and I like to keep her as well treated as possible since she's had a hard life at the hands of questionable talent(I had to use epoxy to repair prymarks and gouges on the clutch cover gasket surfaces,that's one reason why I got her so cheap,needed gentile hands to get her reliable)

One place I'd always make sure to use a gasket is the rocker cover,small oil passages to the rocker arms don't like to be plugged with goo plus the camshaft bearing journals are machined to specific clearances with a gasket.

Da Bandit sent me an email that my gasket shipped today,won't be too long a wait,she's not too noisy to ride anyway,just tryin' to nip it in the bud.

The crappy thing is I've developed an affection for the early DR's,when you look at the 96 and up models(Fantastic bikes,don't get me wrong) I see that they need about $1000 spent just to add what the 91 came with stock(big tank,skid plate,big rack,wide saddle,ect.) So I gotta take good care of the one I have(Seems like the early DR650 are still bringing good money on Craigslist so I don't see myself buying up a bunch of derelicts for spares.

Looks like you push-button start guys have alot going on behind the cylinder on your bikes,I'd try to find someone who's got their carb off of their 450 mxer and take some measurements before spewing out the dosh for one.
Then read through the post96 DR thread for info.
MX_Rob FCR 96+http://home.comcast.net/~rshafer9/FCR_Install.htm

Read the info about the KTM 450/525 carbs,may be the hot setup.

here's a pic of one on a 95...

The big back tire can stay 'till it wears out.

Any thoughts on these tires? IRC VE33's in 5.1 x 17:

http://www.bikebandit.com/product/13773

How do the different sizing measurements work? Say 5.1 x 17 vs 110/100-17?

The 110 is skinnier.


Here's a chart that converts it for you.
