I have the 606s on my drz and I thought they were a little "bumpy" on the pavement. But, I've been running more of a 80/20 street/dirt tire on my other bike.

I use the same filter. I think it is ridiculous to not have a fuel filter on any vehicle. Especially one that is ridden in the dirt! Also, the jets on the DR200 are tiny and prone to plugging up.

I guess I never thought about there being a lot of dual sport bikes in France. Gives me a whole new perspective.

Anything over 87 octane is a waste of money on the DR200. The DR has such low compression there's not any reason for higher octane.

I haven't found that one brand clutch lever is much better than any other. The one you found is fine. The answer on the Kickstart is don't waste your time.

Cycleracks is actually just a couple guys who do it part-time. They live here in Boise. I'm sure they would need a 2014 bike for measurements. I can vouch for their integrity. Still, it's no excuse...

I can't imagine how you can run a better tire off-road than the 606 on the DR. It is very confidence inspiring off road.

The 606s are awesome tires off road. But, I think they are really just dirt tires that are street legal. I don't see them as a true dual sport tire 50/50 tire.

Earlier some asked about quality of the dealer prep on the motorcycle. In my experience it's very poor. My wife's 2013 had parts falling off from day one!
