Not sure they do. Instead, go the other direction. A number of us are running 16/46 (520) for road use, then keep 14T and 15T's around for off-road. I love this gearing setup... had it on my bike for about 13k miles and it's ideal for the road. If I'm going to do extended dirt, the 15T goes on in a matter of minutes.

They have one at Procycle. It is in the "Individual 520 Sprockets & O-Ring Chains" section. It costs $19.95.

Can you use a 525 rear sprocket with a 520 chain?? I would put a fresh sprocket on anyway if your rear sprocket is worn.

No, but I am pretty sure you can use a 525 chain with 520 sprockets.

I have a 520 13t sprocket for limited use with my 525 chain when the going gets tough. Just haven't had a need to use it yet, so I can't report on it.

The bike doesn't do this in the rain.. just when I hit a puddle pretty fast. It's forcing water into something it seems and takes a long time to dry out afterwards.

Bump.

If it's like my FZ1, no. It means you get to buy a new coil to get the wires. Check eBay first. I had to do that with my FZ1... a pair of new coils and plug wires was $35 shipped. Couldn't beat that. New ones woulda cost $200.

Hello, I'm new. Long time lurker and browser of all the awesome pictures, first time poster.
Could anyone please confirm if the Australian spec DR650 is the same as the US and Euro spec. In Australia there is what they call a LAMS scheme (Learner Approved Motorcycle Scheme) and so some bikes are LAMS approved and some aren't. Some bikes they do two versions of so these bikes must have some sort of restricter in place, usually in the throttle. The DR650 is a LAMS approved bike in Australia but my question is, is this because it's power figures are such that it falls into that bracket, or does it have some sort of restriction in place?

I have a full licence so would prefer to unrestrict it if there is some sort of restriction in place.

Thanks,

Chill

The DR650 is LAMS approved simply because it is rated at 34 HP stock (worldwide)
You could then open the air box,fit a pipe and pumper carburetor along with a 780 kit for over 50 HP and no one would be the wiser.
The restrictions stock are worldwide and simply things like the air box having a small inlet not things like restricted intake manifolds etc or ECU's like some Japanese market import bikes.
