Got my new 2008 DR650SE today!

Gday All,
Ive been lurking here for a while....I bet Im not the only one! Such a great resource, thanks for all the tips Ive got so far.

Well today I picked up my new 2008 DR650SE (from Bundy), and rode it about 200kms home. What a great bike. Its docile yet has some poke, easy to throw around, goes anywhere, feels great. I just love it!

Looking forward to getting some more miles on it. I'll have to post some pics when I get the chance.

Jake

bedliner on a skidplate

all this skid plate talk had me thinking and spraying it seems like a good idea. we all know that good deeds and good intentions are as far apart as heaven and hell, though. any thoughts?

cheers,

Just a thought on spraying the bedliner stuff on a skidplate. I had seen it suggested and decided to try it myself. I taped off all what didn't need the spray intending on two lines where it would contact the frame. Spent a while doing it, put a couple coats on then read the portion of the can that said 'CAUTION - HIGHLY FLAMMABLE', 'Do not use near sources of heat or open flame'. Soooo, wanting to test their warning, I sprayed some on something else and took a lighter to it. Sure enough, they were right. I ended up scraping it all off not wanting to take a chance of a fire out in the middle of nowhere being that the skidplate is in such close proximity to the engine and exhaust. I think I'll try using a piece of a hose or inner tube.
Just food for thought. Maybe someone makes a non-flammable spray???

Did you let it dry completely? The solvents and propellent are flammable for sure but I don't think the fully cured bedliner would present much of a problem. Just my .02

Didn't think about that. The portion I lit had dried for about an hour, was still pretty pliable, probably hadn't dried completely.
I'll have to try another test run this weekend (and try not to burn my house down)

I've put it on several different bikes (the rubberized variety) and it works great. No fire hazard when dry.

Nice sound. (Question: How do you put the You Tube video into your post?)

Question Airborne DR650's

Is it wrong to jump with a DR650?

I ask because so far in attempts to see what my new bike can do, I've found it excellent on every surface and in the air, with the only exception being sandy dirt roads (and I think thats mostly due to using the Trail Wings at standard pressure). I'm a little concerned I might be pushing the bike too hard. Its a stock 07 DR650SE w/ 300kms.

Whats your thoughts?

No, it is not wrong to jump a DR650! The only bad part is landing...

After reassessing what happened a couple years ago, heed this warning. I caught some air on my 97 DR650SE and upon landing, my chain popped off and some teeth on my rear sprocket got chewed up. I think the chain derailed due to the upper chain roller and extreme compression of the suspension. Luckily the roller didn't break out of the frame! Make sure you remove the top roller before jumping!
