Unheard of or no fellas ?
That's new from what I've seen.

Maybe Suzuki reads this thread and as a result upgraded the NSU screws.

It is. Haha thanks! I can't ever get away from you guys can I? Your website is now the 2nd most visited on my computer, I have your number saved in my phone, you've gone all Rambo on my bank account and you answer my questions before I even ask you. Procycle haunts me everywhere! Seriously though, thanks for the amazing service.

then that is good news that Suzuki probably has paid some attention. So was it loctite-d by Suzuki? or still the hand tight as the previous Phillip head screws?

No joke. Brand new bike. Last time that saw daylight was in Japan.
Im not sure if they are locktited in or not as I stopped after removing the cover. Worked all night so Im beat. But I guess Ill try and remove the closest one 1st to see what I find. I didnt even look to see if its a allen or torx yet. Cant quite tell from my pic. Also look at what appears to be an aluminum ring under the screw. I dont recall that either.

After looking thru my notes and trying to find one on Autozone, I thought WTF, I'll search the DR thread. And I actually found something from Feb. 2011.

Thanks to Rusty Rocket:
"Autozone" used to have them: (magnetic drain plugs) Try # 129564 365256 Drain plug One is the part # and one is the SKU If my memory is still working. 14mm P 1.25

Let us know what you find... Seems Suzuki did a big upgrade to 2012 models other than the color.

So are you buying all these DR's from various years or do you just like fixing them for others. I have a 08 which needs the NSU work done if you want to have a 08 NSU fix experience in your resume

Any other 2011/2012 owners out there that can confirm?

American Suzuki (Brea, CA) have known about the DR650 NSU bolt problem for at least 4 years. But getting that info back to Japan ... and then have them actually act on it ... is where the mystery comes in.

According to my contacts at Suzuki, they often do minor changes to bikes without announcing that fact. There is a history to this.
Like the minor jetting and carb changes in 2005, or minor elec. mods and gear box mods.

None were "officially" announced, AFAIK, but some on "the inside" hear about some of these changes, not all. In some cases, even American Suzuki staff do not know about certain changes ... and only find out when someone takes something apart ... and Viola! Fixed! Owners manuals rarely reflect minor changes.

Any bets those new hex bolts are Loc-Tited ? Its amazing it took them so long to correct this ... such an easy fix.

On another post I remember someone saying they went into Autozone with the part#/sku and the counter guy disappeared into the back and returned with the plug. Probably the last guy to ever try to help.

Procycle has them for $11.95. That won't help you today though.

Edit: Maybe O'Rielly(sic?), Pep Boys, etc may show something locally.

I was at Autozone today, got a regular drain plug, they did not have the magnetic in our size unfortunately.
