I was hoping there was an off the shelf spacer solution for the DR wheel. But since there is not, the cost effective way to go is going to be a YZ wheel. Option 1 is having a local machine shop whip up spacers, and I make a brake plate to use the DR wheel. Option 2 is buy the YZ wheel, sell the DR wheel, put the machine shop money towards a trailtech.

Option 2 it is.

The forks are off an 02. I looked for the 48mm forks, but a deal on the kyb 46mm came by that was too good to pass up.

I have no issue with Chinese re-producing of non-production/old model Japanese engines/machines but directly ripping off current products is not cool.

How much does free advice cost?

Walmart would charge to much and even theirs would probably have no taper like all the fancy versions available off the shelf.

$18 total spent..

!!!!!! New dr650 parts coming !!!!!

Hey Guys, im a big KTM Adventure fan and recently picked up a homely 97 DR650. well something unexpected happened..I fell in love with the simplicity that the mid size DR offers.
before


so I have been tweaking and changing things.
builiding up new wheels and the rear i went 17"x3.50 just to give the tire a flatter profile and more bite.


and just doing the general stuff us guys do to our bikes.
after a few trips to Moab and Southern Utah.

I was hooked on the little DR and I found the DR lacking in a few key areas that kept me up at night. so I thought I would share some of the new goddiesIi have been testing and working on in the Warp 9 Skunk works lab.

1st item is Handelbar Risers.

this was the early protoypes that allowed me to come up with the height I wanted.



the new version that we will produce is below and it will accomodate standard and oversized bars, it will have a cross bridge to help keep the bar clamps from rotating which seems to be a problem with tall risers and rubber bushings. and also the kit will include Derlin bushings to replace the OEM rubber (you can still run rubber if you want to).




here is the top of the bridge, it will also be drilled and tapped for future add ons like a dash board for trail tech computers and a 12v outlet.


more pictures




im riding with the latest prototype next month in Mexico and if it makes me happy which i think it will these will be about 3 weeks and ill have them instock.

I think you will be on your own.
Fitting the DR650 wheel to RMZ450 forks was the same (20 mm OD axle)
I flipped the DR axle 180 degree's and put a threaded collar in the R/H fork,it was fairly easy as the OD of the DR axle shoulder fit into the L/H RMZ lower perfectly,the Yamaha fork might not be so obliging.
The brake rotor OD's if not the same might present a small hurdle also.

Among other possibilities, check your sidestand switch (if it hasn't been bypassed already). The spring on the sidestand weakens over time, and a bump while riding can open the switch and kill the bike. AMHIK.

I had thought of that, but that shouldn't keep it from turning over once it's stopped, should it? I've heard of several people removing that switch entirely, so I might go that route.

Also, since I've got the bike with the tank, seat, and panels off already, is there any routine maintenance I should go ahead and perform?

Nice stuff from the Warp9man, I think I have all that stuff sorted on mine, but there is a market out there for sure.

+1 Every minute a person takes away from productive work cost them money. There are no free lunches in life. Lunch always cost someone something. Advice and information from a supplier is always appreciated by me and they receive my business for doing so. Poor customer service or incorrect advise loses my business.
