That is exactly what I paid for my 2006 ...

with less than 3000 miles on it. Good deal there if miles are low and condition excellent ...

This is my winter project, I have put Honda CRF 450 forks and Gary Emig of "Emig Racing" made the triple clamps and steering stabilizer. The bike has a Honda front wheel and a RMZ 450 rear wheel. Gary made the spacers for the rear wheel to work. Installed TKC 80 tires front and rear. Gary does nice work and if anyone is interested in
triple clamps or custom work his number is 816-847-1100 or emigracing.com

I would buy a new one from a dealer. I'd call dealers within a 200 - 300 mile radius and see who'll make you the best deal. A 2011 lists for $5899, so you can probably get them down to $5399 or $5499 and there is a $200 customer cash/rebate right now and 0% financing. So, for about $5199 you can have new, with zero percent interest. Around here, a motorcycle loan is closer to 10% (with excellent credit) on a used bike. So, if you can afford to pay cash, used will save you a few bucks (maybe $1500), but otherwise new *might* be the way to go depending on your credit and what you can find near you.

Yeah I saw him today... nice guy too, bad he thinks my jeep is not worth his DR. I might sell my jeep and ask him again with cash.... but I hate yellow.

Nice well thought out.

I am looking into that one.


As for getting a loan. If I can avoid it I will. But after looking at the yellow one earlier today I may just buy a new one.

KAMANDO thanks for the info, usefull knowledge here.

P.S idk if i posted this in the right section or not...
Try looking here http://www.bikefinds.com/suzuki-dr650-for-sale-in-ca as already said don't be afraid to travel a bit for a deal. I got my '07 from SoCal - 4.9 tank, probillet rack and saddlebag guards, skid plate, HID light, soft luggage set, fram horn, RG3 suspension modded, 10k miles for $3250.

Fwiw, there is a 2008 dr650 up here by me, 100% stock, but only 189 miles on it. Seller asks $3900. I don't know how a person can own one and not ride it. Bummer dude.

I bought mine a year ago, 2006 for $3100 with 7k miles stock except new Shinko 705s. Not a steal, but I was sick of waiting around. 3rd gear whines a little, but I guess that's common, its not really loud. What's important is that it gets ridden...

Nice work.

A mate of mine currently has some Emig TCs on order to adapt some YZ forks to his KLR.

I assume the 19" rear is to raise it a bit so as to balance the longer forks a bit?

While in the middle of doing my RMZ250 Fork Swap (2007 RMZ) I'm about ready to unlace my SUN Supermoto Wheel that is currently laced to a stock DR650 Hub, and hopefully exchange the hub for a RMZ Hub, but any guesses to whether the spoke angles would be the same?

If not, what are my options?

I saw and sat on a '12 at the bike show. I thought the color scheme was a little dull/plain compared to earlier years with the all blue, all black, and all white versions.

I agree the gray does nothing for the DR.

It looks a lot better in person. I was not too sure about the color, but am very pleased with it. Glad I got this color

Tastes sure run different. I love the gray DR!

Looks much more serious i.e. badass, less "cartoony" than some other colors.
