That is a very nice switch assembly. FWIW, my kill switch is momentary, I can't forget it and wonder why the bike won't start. And when you're over in the index, post that under electrical controls.
I wanted the momentary kill switch, but the one supplied in my first order was momentary on and the DR requires a momentary off switch. I'm okay with the ON/OFF since it is way more sturdy than the stock switch, but if I could find a momentary off switch that fit the housing/bracket, I would replace it.

I posted both of these pics/write-ups in the DR650 index threads.

I talked to Acertbis today via telephone. They told me the new tank is in the 2012 catalogue and that at the end of Jan it should come out. He said it would be priced at $359.00 US.

Dam!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have waited 15 years for this..I have been a good boy. I have put the family first in everything but now it is my shot. I had a KLR650, one of the first, which I had to sell, and now after much grinding of teeth I have been given the ok to get a DR650. Happy days ahead.... But the dealers can't find me one...WTF...there are some black ones around but I reckon after a few dirt tracks they will not look as clean and as good as a white one. More waiting..ho...f..n hum!

Are they harder to find used in Australia? Hard to throw a stone and not hit a used one in California.

f4brian - hard to tell what the market is in your area. I'd ck CL and other dealer used stock for comparisons. Sounds more like a dealer playtoy or a trade in based on the added parts.

For the most part, a used DR is a used DR. Even if you give the final change in 2006 (rumored upgraded 3rd gear)...it's the same bike. Some nice add ons so those count for a little.

The dealer has depreciated that thing on their books and would like the cashflow of moving it....I'd start at $4K out the door. If they use the warranty as a bargaining tool, I'd tell 'em to take the cost of one year off of the deal and keep it. (this is not an offer to fix the thing if it breaks, but it probably won't)

Good luck.

You can get a monentary mini button from radio shack for 4-5 $ to replace to start switch when/if it breaks,it will fit in the housing.
I sure you could rig up something for the kill switch also.

Here is the list of DR650's currently for sale to give you something to bargain with.
http://www.bikefinds.com/suzuki-dr650-for-sale
You can narrow it down to those of the same year, or by location...
A dealer is not likely to be as flexible as an individual but it is worth a try.

Kind of an exchange, you send in the old one and receive a high mileage one and I put the old one on a drill for a week and spin up the miles.

For years people have been turning back odometers. What is the world coming to?

Better yet, you can just "rent" an old one. Put higher mileage unit on your bike, get it registered, and send the "rented" unit back to be "rented" out again and again. I would probably pay upwards of $50.00 to allow me to register a new bike without the smog crap on it.

My experience in October of this year - a brand new, bone stock, zero miles 2011 DR650 for ~ $5,300 incl freight/set up but not including tax/tags.

Are the farkles worth the miles already on the bike? That's up to you. I like a new bike so I know exactly how it's been treated from day one, but others may trade that for a few hundred worth of "stuff".

They may have another one if you'd like to drive down to NC...

That's a bit high for a bike with 4000 miles. The extras are nice but don't add up to $5,500. Check out Cycle Trader.com

There you can find many new DR650's in the low to mid $4000 range for left over 2011 models. 2012 are more but most under $5000. Be sure to add in tax, prep and all that stuff. Shop around and make your dealer an offer. That bike is not worth over $4000.

You can find a used IMS tank for $150 to $200, handguards and skid plate maybe a couple hundred more.

The US and Australian dollar are about the same on the exchange rate so any price you see in that link think US$.
