No. only the 1996 to current will interchange.
The brake rotor bolt pattern is different and the brake rotor is smaller.

Maybe someone here has a solution.
Suzuki redesigned the DR in 96 and very few things pre 96 will interchange.

The motorcycles I've uncrated the last few years did not have oil in them except for the forks and shock.

My 06 DR650 has developed a clutch side oil leak. I think its either from the engine chain tensioner gasket, or the clutch cover gasket. I did take the clutch cover off abouth a month ago to do the NSU screws. I didn't notice an oil leak before that, but I did clean the engine at the same time so maybe I just couldn't see it before. I keep cleaning all the oil off try try to find the source, but I can't tell.

I did accidently overfill the engine oil about a week ago. I have read that that can cause the chain tensioner gasket to fail, so I'm leaning towards that being the problem.

I have read about people using talcum powder or baby powder to find the oil leak. Just wondering how that would work, wouldn't it just blow off when you started riding??

Hi fellow DR riders.

This last saturday i picked up my DR 650. Really like the bike so far.

Some picks over here:
http://a-stefanes.hyves.nl/album/667...aald/kuHbc1gx/



She's from 2006, an New-Zealand model, which has been imported to the Netherlands in 2009. By the previous / first owner.

There is an aftermarket exhaust (slip-on) fitted. So far i definately need new tires, so i ordered them this morning:


Heidenau K60 Scout.

I;m not looking for great performance mods, just want the biek to be running properly. I feel it is definately running lean. A lot of popping on decel. So far it seams that by pulling the air snorkel, raising the needle 2 mm / 0.08 inch. and drilling the plug for the (idle) mixture screw. Including an axtra hole in the slide. And then i would have a smooth running bike?

Best regards,
Thanas

dont quote me, but i read up on this a few years ago and at the very least the rear discs are different from 1996 on with the SE models... different bolt hole pattern and disc diameter. that alone would make it difficult, apart from possibly different axle diameters and overall width with the swingarm.

i got some of the info from the metalgear.com.au wesite but they dont let the public access full disc specs anymore.

Question Windscreen

I've done a lot of googling and reading about windscreens for the DR. I've read the other threads but looking for current opinions. Like to keep it under $100.

I think I'm down to the Cee Baileys (http://www.ceebaileys.com/suzuki/dr650z400ws.html) or the $75 Dual Sport Windscreen from Procycle (http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr650.html).

I'll be slabbing it 5 hours highway, 2 days of dirt roads, and then 7 hours of highway slab home. My goal is to reduce/eliminate the arm strain on the highway.

1) Opinions on these windscreens if you have one?
2) If Cee Baileys, Sport or Commuter version? Commuter looks a little funky but probably works better.
3) Anyone have one they want to get rid of cheap?
4) Home made? I could pick up a piece of Lexan (where?) and form it myself I suppose.
5) Any other brands you like? The laminar lip from Procycle looks a bit small for highway but let me know what you think if you have one.
6) Is smoke/tinted ok for night riding?

Not too interested in Parabellum...that thing is big and more $ than I wanted to pay.

Thanks!

Get some spray-on foot powder.
Clean the motor thoroughly.
Spray all around the suspected leak areas.
Run the motor.

The powder will make the leak show up very well.
