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.

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.

As far as I know, it's just a guard to keep things away from the exhaust pipe.

Anyone else loose their $68 side-panel on a long trip . Mine is somewhere in MT. Flew off at 80 mph between Columbia Falls and Livingston. The one screw mounting for the panels is idiotic! No snap on grommets like my other bikes. Why doesn't UFO or Acerbis make a replacement?

I'd very much like to tear it apart and learn how to do it. I just want to have it taken care of while it's still under warranty. Once it's running the way it's been running since I purchased it I wouldn't mind re-jetting it. I will learn how to work on the carb and I appreciate all the very good advice I've gotten from here and Thumpertalk.

Thanks.....be patient with me......

O.K. UPDATE

I made the dealer go through it. They READJUSTED CARBUREATOR AND RICHENED AIR FUEL MIXTURE. REPLACED SPARKPLUGS. TEST RODE BIKE, RUNS WELL......in their words.

They said they took it for a ride before hand and said that it was definitely not running right. Did the above and said they took it for a ride and it's fine now. Hmmmmmm, when I got on it there wasn't any real change. After about 5 miles I'd say it's running better than it was but still not right the first quarter throttle. If I roll on it slow it doesn't have the power it once did. With only 1500 miles on the plugs they found one to be dark brown and the other to appear that the bike was running lean. I don't understand why the difference between the plugs...

Sooo, I've done the dealer thing and once again am not very impressed. But now that I have I feel I can move on. I'm certainly not giving it back to them to do more work when I can do better work myself!

I'll contact Jesse and get the Jet kit and perhaps do the air box mod at the same time. I'll check the header pipe to see if it needs to be ground down. I've been looking for an excuse to do this anyway since I love to work on my bike. Any words of wisdom from any of you before I do it?

Should I do both the air box mod and the jet kit?

Is there a down side to doing the air box mod?

Should I do the jets first and see how it runs before I do the box?

If I grind the header after I re-jetted would I need to re-jet again so would it be best to check the header before I re-jet?

Thanks. I appreciate the advice.
