Is there a good DR650 FAQ online? I realize there's only 7224 posts in this thread... (call me lazy) I'd love to find a page that lists common bolt-on's, manufactures, year to year changes, etc...

Thanking you in advance.

What idiot let that one get away? Man that looks like a show bike. There's a bike show at the Sandia classic this weekend. You have a winner for sure. Ride safe.

the condition of the bike is fantastic! there are no scratches or dents in the tank. the plastic has never been bent (no white stress marks) so i dont think it has ever been down. there are some very minor scuffs in the plastic but i have seen worse on a show room floor.

it probably needs an oil change. i have not done one yet. i have only put 300 miles on it in two months. the front tire is a dunlap d606 and the rear is a kenda 270. i also have the front kenda 270 to go with it. i personally didnt like it.
There is a for sale forum here, don't choke this tread any more than it is...

Cry 1997 DR650 Price advice...$$$ ?

I've been looking for a Dr650 having decided it's the best of all worlds for a DS. After thinking about it for a while I can't see why water is being used to cool the motors and keep emissions low when oil cooled is simpler, less expesive, less complications and maintenance etc.

So, I have found a 1997 DR650, 5,000 miles, bone stock and in VG condition.
Assuming there are no mechanical issues, what is a fair price to pay?

What goes here?

While peeling back the layers of my 02, I noticed something is missing. Can someone enlighten me?

It likely needs to have the starter clutch replaced asap, that year may have have the solid one which can lead to fatal results for the motor. Parts about $150. $2200?

Did you do your own oil filter change too?

That applies to the '98 and '99 only. The base gasket is the only potential issue with the '97.

That's what we've been trying to tell everybody

I got my '96 with a bunch of farkles, 2 years ago for $1700, and 9700 on the odo. I think you should try for $2000 or less. The darn things don't stick around for long though so it's worth what someone who's quicker to it than you is willing to pay.
