Ottawa DR650 Riders

Hi Ottawa DR650 riders, We are increasing in numbers over the past couple of years and should have a place to get together.

I've started a thread on ADV for local Ottawa DR650 Riders to:
- discuss DR650 modifications
- exchange parts and ideas
- try out eachothers mods before doing our own
- help each other with troubleshooting and tuning
- pass along information on good deals on parts (group buys perhaps?)
- find riding buddies
- organize some rides

This thread is not to replace any of the existing Ottawa, DR650 or ride threads on ADV or elsewhere.
This is not a club or exclusive group, just a place to meet and talk local DR650

Cheers,

You rode my DR so perhaps you do qualify.

I bet we will - but not on the DRs. The BMWs have more capacity for heated gear of course.

No problem shipwrek I lurk everywhere on ADV

I like to pretend my DR is a dirt bike sometimes and for short rides I do alright. The Algonquin 2 Day trail ride after the rain last year was pushing it (literally) a bit too far. I also enjoy twisty pavement rides so long as I don't have to go more than 120 for any length of time to keep up.

My DR is a 2001 model baught new in 2002 but as you all know '96 to '12 are all the same until we get creative. Here for your amusement is my mod list:
- Dynojet kit and opened top of air box
- Twin Air air filter
- NGK Iridium spark plugs
- loctite on the NSU screws
- GSXR muffler with FMF spark arrestor screen
- DR250 tail light
- removed lower fender
- LED stick on licence light
- Seat Concepts seat
- IMS tank
- EvoMx Fuel tank foam
- Ricochet (Utah sport cycle) skid plate
- headlight relays with direct wire to battery
- Fastway foot-pegs
- Galfer wave rotors
- Galfer steel front brake hose
- Cogent Dynamics rebuilt shock
- Race Tech Cartridge Emulators
- Ebach .47 kg/mm fork springs
- extended fuel screw
- Dual Star heated grips
- home made bar risers
- OEM Speedo removed
- Garmin 60cx as speedo and trip meter
- speedo eliminator spacer on front axle
- Ken Sean mirrors
- Emgo hand protectors with Acerbis wind deflectors
- Hippo Hands hand muffs
- home made extended lower chain guide
- 520 x-ring chain, 15:47 sprockets
- ignition switch and steering lock removed
- D606 on the rear tire, Pirelli Scorpion Pro front

You will have to head to the Ottawa area (Calabogie or Limerick forest) this summer for a ride to qualify. Otherwise it will be hard for me to try out your bike.

You mean '96 to '12, of course...

'96 was the best year, I hear.
