luckychucky, yours (2004).......




mine (2008).........


Looks the same to me. I think Mongle is right on it, those marks are from cracks in the mold, not cracks in the engine casting.

I am coming to the USA. For over a year I have been trying to import my 2009 DR 650 to the Philippines from Seattle. As of last Tuesday I have given up on that idea, too much red trap. On May 18th I fly to Seattle and I will spend 4 months riding around the Western USA. I am 73 years old and I know that this will probably be my last chance.

In February 2011 I rode from Seattle to San Diego there was snow, wind and rain, I will make that trip again, and hope for nice weather so I can take my time and enjoy it more. I plan on using my National Parks Senior Pass a lot, as well as my MSR Hubba Hubba, and my Kermit chair.

So if you see an old man on a black DR 650, with yellow Wolfman bags, give me the finger, and I will give it back.

ON ON...

Whoops. I guess that was from ER70S-2:

His bike's too clean to clearly see all the marks, but the major ones look the same as yours and mine.

You installed the bolt spacers in the correct place, yes?
I had to move the rub block forward since I have a 46 t rear sprocket.
Just as they say in the item description online.
Looks a bit funny now but it clears just fine.

Where is your chain rubbing on it?
BTW, it would have been faster to get the correct answer if you just called PC and asked them.
They do know what they sell

I don't think we would have had a quick answer for this. I haven't had any reports of rubbing/misalignment with the Warp9 chain guide. It's probably a case of having to look at everything involved - guide, chain, sprocket, swingarm brackets, etc to figure out why it's rubbing. I have them on both my 790 and 900. No rubbing and no obvious way to install the guide incorrectly.

I believe you tried this ride a year or two ago? You fell off, got hurt, bike broke down? Right? Jeez ... hope this trip has less drama! Let me know if you get into trouble ... I have a VAN and LOTS of DR parts!

With 4 months you've got time to see quite a bit. The Park pass is great!
I'd do Baja on your trip. If you've not been, it's a great time ... and safe.
I would devote two weeks to Baja alone. Fantastic.
Ride all the way down. It will be warm in May/June but its a dry heat, should be no problem after Philippines. LOTS OF WATER!

Great empty beaches, NO people but enough towns to enjoy yourself when you feel like it. Everyone speaks English/Spanglish. Lots of fun dirt roads for the DR. Avoid the tricky stuff if riding alone.

If your headed back to Seattle then I'd do Idaho and Montana on your way North. Better weather later in Summer. Best riding states in the USA. Don't miss Death Valley. Even in the heat its great ... and you're only a few hours from Vegas ... or Beatty!

If you end up in Northern California I can suggest a few good routes.

Have a great ride.

The only reason that pic is from a clean bike is because it's a stolen internet photo. (I did add the arrow )
If you see me and the bike is that clean, I stole it too. See my sig for reference.

Not yet Paul, but it's 25* and snowing right now. I got to ride 190 miles yesterday though. Thanks for the free-bee.

Ynot, congrats on your summer plans. Get a cell phone (if ya don't have one) and post your location occassionally; I'll bet there's several guys that would ride some distance to buy ya a cup of coffee. Or bring a trailer to help ya out.

Surely you jest Sir!

Some of my best friends can't figure out which end of a hammer to use.
And I am about as clueless about computers.
It doesn't need to be obvious, if it is at all possible, some of us will do it wrong.
