Question

upon further inspection, it seems the 1995 engine has cases and then a covering piece that houses the starter and starter gears, whereas the 1999 engine combines these two pieces into one solid hal¿f of the engine cases. Am I wrong in this analysis? Am I missing something?

There are essentially two versions of the DR:

1) the pre-1996 version
2) the post-1996 version

While the two bikes have some resemblance, they are completely different and do not share any of the same parts.

does that mean the starter clutch gears from a pre 1996 bike won't work on a psot 1996 bike, or simply that the engine cases and other engine parts are not compatable? Meaning I would need a post 1996 left side engine case? But the generator covers are compaptable pre 1996 and post 1996?

Beyond a few bolts and screws nothing from a '94 motor will fit a '96 and later motor. They are 2 completely different animals sharing only the same name.

Engine cases are machined in matched pairs. Trying to put 2 unmatched case halves together to build a motor is inviting all sorts of possible problems - from oil leaks to stressed bearings and misaligned shafts.

It's not worth the risk or trouble. You need a matched set of case halves or better yet a complete motor. One here on eBay (not mine)

Is this case the same as the one on a 1998 or 1999 DR650, and is it a direct swap part? Do I need a complete set of cases or can I just replace one side with the 1994 part and keep my 1999 right side case?

Thanks for any help and advice

Cheers

Not sure how important it is, but the cases are sold in sets.
If you mix and match, you might have issues, vibration issues, oil leak issues?

The lineup of the crank bearings might be critical...

Procycle sell a couple of nice little tools for this job-I've just ordered one, along with a few other goodies to justify the $75.00 (AUS) freight to Aussie.

clutch side issues

Heard rumours about some component under the clutch cover coming loose on late model dr650s , Can anyone shed some light on that issue for me and on how to fix it.

-20 out so I am not riding good time for preventative maintenance.

Big wave of the hand.
