Looks like valve pocket was milled to me, but like you said head may have been also, too much compression for gas being used, pre ignition is my bet.

Not sure of size of hole on 650, but on the 250, it is very small, 1/8 inch maybe, leads to pumping losses, or pressure build up under piston on downstroke. Bigger piston presumably bigger issue.

Same move here, got klx, got a big bore kit, DR went somewhere else. I do not miss it at all, although I have dl650 for longer, faster road trips. Klx is just so much better on trails.

Two high mounted pipes raises the COG, it is all a trade off, but everyone will enjoy the lower COG of new bike, two people may actually dent the current exhaust from actual rough usage.
