Help! 1994 DR650RE Questions
Hi Guys. I posted this on TT but got no responses. Seems a bit of a mystery!
Hoping you can help me. I'm trying to decide on which thumper to get. DR650 or DRZ400E or KLR650. My mind is set on the first two.
I saw a 1994 come onto the market but the seller has it marked as a 1994 DR650RER. I think the last R is a year code for 1994, but I cannot find much information on the DR650RE
First of all it seems to be oddly placed around the world. From the zen seeker dr650 site it looks to be european. From the forums and classifieds i've seen it's popped up in Thailand, South Africa, Australia. No country seems to have many,
I think it is a 1994-1995 only model and was a Dr650R (Dakar) model with an electric start. It's in a grey area between the 1991 kick start versions and the post 1996 editions with the 50lb/25kg weight reduction.
Is this correct? Can anyone shed any more light on it?
Will 1996+ farkles and parts work on it much? The one I am looking at has done 25k miles / 45k kms. Not too bad for a 1994. I'd be looking at getting it for around 3k - nothing to write home about for my local market. Maybe get it for a bit cheaper
-rebuild 7 months ago (3rd gear lost one of its teeth?!!? he partially rebuilt it himself)
-new rear tire, fronts in good condition too
-high compression piston (not sure what this is about)
-oil changed every 3 months
-2 spare unused knobbies
-geared for highway use
-bash plate, luggage rack
-all electrics work
-no smoke, no oil leaks
What do you guys think?
