i want $3900 for it if sold on here. i am going to list it on ebay with a buy it now price of 4200.

i am the second owner of this bike. i have only had it for 2 months. the only reason i am selling it is to free up some cash for expenses on the purchase of a house. the state is widening the road (for the past 7 years ) and finally decided to get off their butts and do it. my house will be a pile of rubble soon.

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.

I've finally joined the ranks! I purchased an 02 DR650 from a fellow ADV-rider here in AZ. It's not perfect, but it's all there, and only has 5K miles on the odo. Mods that I know of are a hell-of old Supertrapp exhaust, Dynojet kit, hole in the airbox mod, Suzuki rear rack, Acerbis hand guards and Renthal bars. The bikes has been lowered and has Progressive springs in the forks. It also has a skid plate.
People are always telling me my bikes are "way too clean" so this is going to be a challenge. I already removed the sheep skin pad, it's wasted. The mis-matched blue hand guards are driving me crazy, the plastic isn't perfect, etc....
I'm hoping to use the bike for fire road exploring and commuting a few times a week.

Talking High Maintenance??

They are all fairly low maintenance but I know first hand the KLR and DR are stupid easy with the DR being easiest.
LOL!! An hour to adjust the chain?? What are these guys doing? Pulling the cotter pin out with their teeth while holding a beer in one hand? Even still I could do it in ten minutes! I can adjust the valves in less than an hour easily too. Most of these magazines are completely driven by ad space and their level of knowledge on the bikes they are testing is questionable.

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.
