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$.

The main thing to think about really is will you regret overpaying slightly 6 months down the road? Don't pay that much if that will be the case. In reality the price you are looking at is a little high, but with the amount of use you will get from that it will work out to pennies a day. I paid that for my brand new 09 3 years ago and have put 50000 miles on her since without a hiccup. She runs very well still, I have farkled the shit out of her at more expense than what I paid for sure. I would pay that price again for the enjoyment she has given me though. When I look back I was upset that I overpaid a bit, they gave me a 3 year warranty included, but now 50k later I would overpay again. The DR is the most useful bike I have ever owned and I will buy another when this one gives out. Although I think it will be another 50k before she even thinks about giving me a problem. The perfect bike IMHO. Truly

My DR has been smoking (definitely oil burn) on start up for a year now. When we had a really cold day I started it and it smoked furiosly for a good while and some oil leaked out of the exhaust where the head pipe meets the cylinder head (need a new exhaust gasket no doubt), but I have been looking at the exploded parts view and is it simply that little oil seal on the valve (part 22 in this diagram http://www.cyclepartsnation.com/page...003/5603060008 ) that likely needs replacing or is it more complicated? I suppose it could be rings but only does it on start up at idle, so I don't think so. Bike is a 98 with only 19k on it.

don't pay a penny more than $4k out the door for that. imo, you should find something even older, and for less money. all these bikes are the same; save the money for making it exactly the way you want it.

i actually got one a bit older and w/a bit more miles ('00, w/8k); i now have ~$4k into it total, including the cost of the bike, and it's now completely done up to my liking - 'tarded, complete suspension re-do, complete carb/exhaust re-do, 4g tank, seat, lighting, etc:
-sm wheels/tires,
-rm usd forks w/race-tech springs,
-rear shock rebuilt w/race-tech walves and eibach spring,
-hid lighting in baja-designs housing,
-pro-taper bars,
-vapor trail-tech speedo,
-corbin seat,
-rear rack,
-led turn-signals,
-dr250 tail-light,
-slipstreamer windshield,
-fcr39 carb w/merge racing spring,
-k&n filter/sock, no airbox,
-fmf powerbomb hi-flow header,
-keintech hi-flow midpipe,
-tsukigi titanium gsxr muffler,
-acerbis 4g tank,
-yamaha r6 low fender
all i want to ad now is a center stand...

ymmv,

There are a few....but I am wary as many might have been to the centre of the earth and just cleaned up. Friends of mine have done this. They buy all the add ons...tanks etc ...do the trip through the deserts...flog the shit out of them ...get home and put all the nice untouched gear back on and they look like new... I don't like to buy used bikes for this reason...I will just have to wait I guess...Like I said...DAMMIT!

We have guys doing the same here. The other major caveat on our "Old School" DR650 is the primitive cable speedo. It's child's play to DISCONNECT
the cable ... easily done in one minute ... or swap it out for another speedo.

Time to sell? Hook Speedo back up, put on fresh plastic, buff out scuffs and scratches and off she goes for twice what's she's worth to unsuspecting buyer.

It's quite possible a 2000 DR bought with just 8K miles is a victim of a speedo disconnect. Modern bikes are harder to fiddle ... but don't kid yourself ... it can be done. Always check bikes for Tell Tales of use. There are many all over the bike. But a really good "detailer" can erase most of them.

Another good reason to buy new...they are not that expensive $7990 on road, compared to other bikes that is.
Thanks again McD

Wolfman bag

Can anybody post a review/pic of their DR with a Wolfman Beta Bag installed.

It's the duffel with a seat channel built into the bag similiar to "Giant Loop".

Thanks
