Too bad. It's been awhile since I rode one but I recall it being a more versatile engine than, say, the air-cooled XR250L engine - more power everywhere and much more refined. Especially more...

What year DR are we talking? All the '96 and up I've ridden, with gear-driven counter-balancer, are the smoothest singles I've encountered.
