OZ DR650 build up

G'Day Inmates,

many seem to enjoy DR650 build ups so here's a new one . It'll be hard to top many of the "inspiration machines" already on the forum but I'll post my work for kicks. Warning... it'll be a slow build up.

The DR...



Stock 1997 DR650 - bought by the-side-of-the-road for AUD$2100.

Added Racetech front fork springs and an 8kg rear spring, dynojet carb kit and B&B bash plate. More details on these later, as i'll be dismantling and starting fresh.

Plan:
1. Frame paint
2. KTM Marzochi front end
3. 18" rear wheel (lc4/8 ?)
4. black rims
5. Oversize tank
6. 520 Chain & sprockets (14cs 46?rear)
7. Fresh plastics (black or blue/white scheme)
8. FCR-MX carb
9. GSXR muffler
10. Twin headlamp mod
11. reduce weight
12. fastway pegs

Application: All terrain. In all honesty, I would prefer a new CRF or WR but since I have the DR and have the need for farkle, here goes.

I'm seeking advice; powdercoat or spray the frame? I've read various posts and remain undecided.
