I run a GPS mount that looks like the Arkon Box.
Works just fine for a Nuvi 255W

The only thing I can complain about is, you cant hear the speaker.
Even that is no biggie to solve if you wanted to.

It makes a handy place to keep my registration & insurance card in as well.
I can have them in my hand and practice my innocent look before the Policia get out of the car.

You did notice that Poll was started in 2004, right?
If you look at the various threads in the Thumpers forum .. and especially THIS thread, it's clear the DR650 out pulls the KLR by a large margin.

Jethrow,
I'd suggest you go back about 250 pages in this thread. Start reading. Everything is covered ... over and over.

Yep. Been running the 780 for almost 2-1/2 years. The 790 is identical except for the .024" bigger piston (for better compatibility with 'off the shelf' piston rings).
Also, now building a DR900 just for grins --> http://drriders.com/topic6662.html?s...ee6725ce7cb474

I purchased the AD bouvin Explorer smart terrain system. Thought I would share it with you DR lovers.

Thanks for all the replies. Sounds like 5000 miles isn't bad. I just sold my DR350 and the Avon tires had 13000 miles on them with some left. Avon doesn't make then in DR650 size.

DR needs rings

I need to replace the rings in my DR. Can I remove the cylinder without removing the engine from the frame? If so any links or tricks would be appreciated.

Yes, the top end can be serviced with the motor in the frame.
No special tricks involved but it's a good idea to have a service manual on hand.
