Nice New 2008 Blue with Handguards

Unlike most of the others, your first mod will be coming up instead of down. That bike will fit you like a glove at 6' 1". Good luck and keep the pics a coming. Nice color, you going to be alright switching from a KLR?

How Many Add-ons do you SEE?

From Recently Updated

How do I make the pic bigger? Feels like a miracle I posted the tiny pic. Kinda hard to spot the add-ons at this size.

They already raised it back up for me, so that's done. My helmets don't match now, they are both red, LOL

I got rid of the KLR in May of 2010, so I'll be just fine, although, with the mods i did to the KLR, she was faster than a stock DR650.

I already hit Procycle for a Jet kit, , IMS tank, and gas tank vent. Now I need to hit Jessie for that mid pipe to get the GSXR on there.

What a guy!

I bought a roll of Lifesavers from Rick at Cogent and he threw in all this other stuff. Can't wait to see the difference in the DR.

Top case

I wanna add a pelican 1500 or 1550 as a top case, was thinking this mount is probably the best, or do you guys know of a better one

I had that rack for my top case, but it wasnt sturdy enough for me. I wound up getting the E-bay BBQ rack but the guy is no longer producing them. A local inmate friend of mine had (has since sold the bike) the Pro Moto Billet rack on his DR650 with the Pelican, it was very sturdy. http://www.promotobillet.com/catalog...roducts_id=190

Jetting question

I hate asking jetting questions, but here goes it.

Procycle jet kit on the way, will open the airbox, and be putting on a GXSR pipe with stock header. I see the kit comes with 3 jets, what size is recommended to start with?

The 150 at near sea-level, usually, but I'd try the 155 first to see if it's too much fuel at WOT. If you get max acceleration at 3/4 to 7/8 throttle, and not at WOT, your main jet is likely too big. Drop down to the 150 and try again.

Plus, the new head-pipe/power bomb and green skull. Good eye. They had some pretty cool helmets at Lincoln, for under 100 bucks. Modular helmets on top rack for half-price. You need two new modular Shoeies in blue.

I just realized in your pic, they didn't change your kickstand, you need the tall one. I have it.

buy the base part only and thru-bolt the pelican to it.
