I've finally got a complete spare rear wheel and second drive hub for my ADV and singletrack setups.
someone snatched it up - anyone here?

Gouged the cover but it didnt leak. Picked the big pig up and had to decide if I wanted to ride up, or ride down not knowing where I was going. I chose the up route and decided that exploring unknown rocky trails riding solo on a DR is not for me. I will use my two-smoke for that.

This sort of thing is how I ended up with a KLX250S for that kind of riding. My DR rarely ventures off anything more "extreme" than a gentle two-track trail now. :)

at the price, it was worth it for the sprocket or cushions alone. to get both with a hub was a no brainer. I have all that already,so I passed. the same guy is parting out a DR650 so there's a lot of other stuff available for those looking.

Rich - as I'm sure you're aware, there's case protection available for those inevitable drops. I'm not on the home computer so I don't have the links to post but PC has a set and the maker of the AMP oil filter cover has some. They've saved me from an oil leak more than once.

As Promised

Just got my new Seat Concepts 1" taller seat for the DR650

compare with stock:





on the bike:





Seriously nice product. I got the "standard vinyl because I want to be able to slide around and have my pants come with me.

I sat on it and it changes the whole feel of the bike. It feels like my KTM more. I feel like I'm on the bike as compared to in it. The stock seat always felt low to me.


I will be taking it for a ride tomorrow.

A big thanks to Lendon @ SeatConcepts for getting this done in time for my upcoming trip. They can now make them for everybody.


Sorry you had to see my bike without knobbies. She's dressed for a 1000 mile street ride. Not my usual type of riding.

One other added bonus.....it gets rid of the blue and yellow stock seat colors.

Listing ended. If they're the ones from a guy in San Diego, yes, I had them on the DR. Only reason I took 'em off was to spend money on Wolfman stuff....lotsa money.

They worked great and are very sturdy. I had soft bags on them with no issues.

Short leavers for my bike

Who makes or where can I get short clutch and break leavers for my 2007 DR650?

I have a KTM 300 for that stuff, but I was on the DR and it was there and legal enough to see where it led.

Very nice. At 6'4", that is exactly what I'm looking for.

89 model DR650

I've been riding xt225 for about a year now and wasn't really planning an upgrade but I saw a very cheap DR650 for sale but wanted to find out from experts here, do's and don't for this model DR.

It's a 1989 model DR650 for AU$1750
It looks good for its age and assured that it runs well. It will need standard TLC like any other second hand bike.

After some googling, I found a lot of info but can't find any record of 89 model dr650!

That looks really good. I don't need the extra height, but my Sargent seat could use an extra inch of good foam in it. My knees force me to sit down most of the time, so a little extra padding would be nice! I have a Corbin on my DR350 that was ordered for my riding buddy with an extra inch of memory foam and I love it. We just asked Corbin about making the seat softer for him and they said they could add an extra layer of foam to it. It really turned out good, and looks and feels like no other Corbin I've had. Instead of flat and hard it's got a taller look and is softer than your typical Corbin. Just another option if anyone is interested in paying the price for a Corbin.

hacksaw works great...I shortened mine about 1.5 inches to fit in the MSR brush guards.
