JEFF you are the man!
My stuff came in very fast. and it had to cross the entire country.

Besides the speed, they seem to sell stuff we want, and make it WAY to easy to just order stuff.
Unlike some places, I never got something from them that was not good stuff.

A very good business model.

IMO there are many ways to "justify" the expense on DR Farkling, here's one of mine: I shopped long and hard to find the bike to fit my perceived needs.
Here's what I'll have into mine when I'm "done".
$4999 for a new '09DR
$150 for skid plate and armor
$800 for custom adjustable suspension (not bought yet)
$140 for lowered pegs to fit my long legs
$35 for bar risers
$700 for the Happy Trail hard bags and rack I just received
$160 for the Seat Concepts mod.
All that comes to $6984. Would I have paid $6995 for the above bike after pricing what was out there? In a heartbeat. And it alone met some of my priorities - reliable, air cooled, carbureted, and don't have to remove cams to adjust valves.
Admittedly I struggling to not go the Brittania Composites/Trail Tech route, but I still think the modded bike is a bargain by modern standards.

I'm on the opposite side of that. I wanted a bike to use when the roads are full of sand & salt, and the occasional foray into the dirt. My list of farkles are or will be:
tailrack and bag
Skid plate
Seat Concepts
New front springs

Thant's all the mod's I will be doing. Also I bought the bike off ebay from a dealer in NJ brand new for $3995 so I did get away cheap on this!

I'm setting mine up as a gravel road adventure bike. For this first year It'll get good knobies, a bigger fuel tank, a bash plate, a properly set up stock carb, Bark busters, luggage rack and lowered foot pegs. I'd like to re due the suspension but that might have to wait until next year as will the flat slide and exhaust. That's the cool part of the DR, you can set it up how you like.

Replaced the stock exhaust with the Supertrapp, new fuel filter and both air filters. Amazing what that little bit of work made it breathe and sound so much better.

Surprisingly, it is very quiet, moreso than my DR200 with the FMF.

Best DR650 tank bag

I need a tank bag. What are you using and how is it working for you? Got any pictures? I am keeping the stock tank so magnetic is fine. Thanks.

kn back to "stock"

My bike came with a KN filter and I just received my twin air from procycle.

Are the stock parts 3,4 and 13 all I need to order?

I just replaced my stock filter with a twin air and I believe those three parts should be all you need to put it in.

I am using the Marsee 20 liter tank bag which I bought from Craigslist for $100. Think the retail is $199.99. It expands and holds tons o' shit, however, I usually have it in non-expand mode. Like it for the clear map top and extra pockets. It has its own wallet inside and a waterproof cover for rainy rides.
Mine looks just like this, but is magnetic.

New DR owner with a question

Okay, new to a DR and have a couple of questions. I bought a used bike with almost 12,000 miles ... yep I know, need a value job or at least have them checked. The bike runs strong but seem to have a hign idle and really does not respond that well until you have her wound pretty tight. Normal? I have spent three months on several sites tracking information but I am all ears for any help or suggetions to not only this question but anything dealing with the DR650. Thanks
