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.

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.

DR650SE ('97) current project
CBR954 ('03) daily ride
CBR900 ('96) the 'ol days
CR250 ('03), 125 ('89), 80 ('85) the 'ol days
KX80 ('92) the 'ol days
