Yeah, first time with the magnetic plug. We'll see how it looks when I change it in a few months to put the motorcycle up for the winter.

No winter riding in your neck of the woods?

[QUOTE=Escaped;19499763]Wow - is that a solid mass, big pieces or a fine paste?

I started using a magnetic drain plug at around 30,000 miles, now have 40K and never more than a smudge of magnetic stuff.

Does this like normal wear for a DR with 15,500 miles?
Mostly a paste with a few larger pieces.

Mine found a nsu screw the first time I used it.

About 50,000km ago. Only paste since then.

Over here LAMS is (going to be) 660cc or less.

Question DR650 tires needed by Thursday - urgent!!!

I need a set of dual sport tires for a DR650 for a 3 day ride starting the 7th. So I need to spoon the tires on by Thursday night.

I just found out that tires cannot be shipped 2nd day or overnight...so, does anyone have a source for dual sport tires in the eastern Mass region?

I live in Arlington, MA and was looking for Bridgestone TW301/302s or maybe the Pirelli MT21s. In a pinch, most 50/50 I would do but don't want to break the bank. Local dealers or someone that can overnight a set to me would be good.

Thanks!!!

Just got back on a shakedown ride with the dr. My opinion is the 16 42 combo works well for commuting and highway droning. Not to debate ratios, but, it worked really well actually having a 5th gear for, well overdrive.

I have a pumper carb so that might make a difference in rally lugging the motor.

Oh, I had the gocruise cruise control. Look mom! No hands!

I too run a 16 42 for going places on highway or graded gravel. It sure calms the revs down at highway cruising speeds. Stock motor except for a stage one 223 grind cam.

I like the 16-42 combo for the highway too, very mellow.

Been running a 16/42 combo for commuting and highway use here, too. Next combo (already purchased) will be 16/43. I found that for most of the 100km/h roads up here that I was almost lugging at or just under 100 and as a result, was always jumping between 4th and 5th.

I'm hoping one more tooth on the rear will alleviate that a bit.

I don't use 5th until over 60 mph (92kph) unless I'm on a flat road or a downhill. I guess they get pretty 'touchy' if'n they catch you speeding up there.

Use tyre levers - much easier than spoons...
