Thanks Will
We ship worldwide. It's easiest to just order right from the ProCycle web site. You can find the DR page here. International shipping on one little part can be a bit painful. It may be more worthwhile if you can find a few more items you need. If you want to pay with PayPal send an email to the sales department through the web site. One of the sales staff will be able to send a PayPal invoice.

Thank you Sir!

Unfortunately, I will be storing this info myself as I tried to share it with my neighbor only to be informed that he has the motor in the bike and he doesn't care to take it out. I wished him luck... I hope the trans can get enough oil otherwise.

Take pictures with your phone as you work. Eliminates the guess work.

I took pictures of my rebuild a few years back and I even looked at them but the problem is that the seals are to the inside, meaning you don't know they are there until you pull the bearings. When I walked down to my neighbors house, he had the seals laying on floor and when I asked what they were for, he said the case bearings. I immediately thought, "Ruh-Roh!" but couldn't tell him definitively if it was really an issue or not. At least now I know if I ever have another motor needing bearings.

What's sad is that someone is going to buy that bike from him one day and never know about the bearings.

Nope just casting marks.If they where cracks it would be leaking oil all over the place.

DR 650 Case

You mean they have been there all along? I don't remember ever seeing them. It looks like the metal is drying out?

You've just got some dust in the lines highlighting them more than usual. They've always been there.

Ignore the arrow, it's pointing out a metal head gasket.

Took the awful Rotel Tomato can exhaust off of my Purple People Eater and installed an OEM setup scored off of eBay.

The bike even looks happier.

Mine has them too. I panicked a bit when I first saw them until I looked at another DR and realised they all have them.

I found the recent comments about valve clearances interesting. I adjusted mine recently for the first time (12,000km) and they were quite loose. I was thinking that the way mine were would have meant a decreased valve-open duration and now adjusted it would increase the valve open duration. But was unsure as to which state would give more power if any.

Since adjusting it's noticably quieter. Also, before it would start without the choke and would run slightly slower and then speed up after 20 seconds or so. Now, if I start without any choke it tries to die and it starts ok with a tiny bit of choke for the first 20 seconds or so. It's about 20C (68F) degrees here in the mornings.

Not a problem I just find it interesting.

Only, the sides stand is now too short. Any shorter stature Utah residents want to trade with me?
I'm using a short side stand on a full height DR and wouldn't run a stock stand if I was given a gold plated one...

Price check

Looking for another DR650 and found a 2003. It appears to be completely stock, no farkles and less than 2000 miles. Owner will take $2800, NADA value is about $2000. Original asking price was over 3K. Good, bad, OK on price.

Interesting how you discover things, eh?

You could always go with one of these, from Pro Cycle:



That would eliminate the cable (and its adjuster) entirely.
