Makes me wonder...............Could the DRZ250 cartridges be installed into the DR650 forks???????? Ebay here i come.
So I popped into my local dealer tonight and they copied the exploded diagram for the DRZ250 forks out of their documentation.

Interestingly they don't show any sort of adjustable shim stacks and according to their book the diagram shows everything in the forks, nothing comes apart any further than is shown.

I also asked them to find out the price of part 16, as the adjuster screw is stuck in both my fork legs and I may not be able to get them unstuck. There was no price on file as that part has never been imported here individually by Suzuki NZ.

Sorry for the crap pic, I don't have a scanner.
