Mine is a 790 and with all that extra power and torque I want to make sure my trans will hold up

WOW! A 790 dr. If I had that I wouldn't be worried about the small amount of torque a Cush drive displaces. Its Understandable why you would want a Cush drive with that beastly thumper. That's awesome.

+1 on the Cogent Mojave (7.6 spring) and DDCs from Procycle. I tested them out a couple weeks ago on some intense single track and a nasty 1-2 mile stretch of whoops up at Rampart Range (south of Denver). They did fantastic compared to the stock, soggy suspension.

I'm 185 - about 205 with gear, tail and tank bags on the bike. Procycle recommended .55kg springs, which were my only complaint. They were constantly washing out on me. I was running 22psi up front, which could have contributed to the experience, but I ordered and installed a set of .50kg springs afterward. Haven't tested them yet, but I hope they make the front end feel more planted.

I couldn't believe what the DR could do on mountain trails I used to ride on RMs and CRs as a kid. Even a poor-performing carb couldn't wipe the silly grin off my face!

I have one with many thousands of miles on it. I ride aggressively most of the time. Your transmission will be just fine.

You have a 790 or a non-Cush drive wheel?

Called the dealer today to see wtf is going on. Seems they are taking their time since its a warranty claim. They said it seems to be the cdi box. Will keep you Gus posted.

Jerks, if it is the CDI put a new one in and you'll know. Wonder if they have looked at it yet

Piece of cake. The wet part was slippery due to the kenda 270 front, but otherwise the bike was great..

Glad you guys enjoyed!

I'm finding it difficult to get into neutral gear. I measured the play of the clutch lever and it is within spec, and when I had the case off and measured the plates they were OK as well. What else should I do, or is it a known issue?

maybe they're tying to figure out which seat bolt to take off first. The right one or the left one. I don't think it's specified in the manual.

Rolling or stopped? Rolling in gear challenges me sometimes but if I'm stopped, no issue.

Have you fixed the NSU issue yet? Neutral issues, especially with regard to the neutral light, are a warning sign that your NSU might be getting ready to take a crap on your engine. It could be the bolts that hold your NSU in place have loosened up and are getting ready to fall out (potentially destroying your engine). Google "DR650 NSU" for more info.

Beyond that I'd suggest changing your oil / filter and see if that helps. Old oil can have an effect on how the transmission feels when shifting.

edit add: also check that the bolt securing your shift lever is tight and secured with Loctite blue. A loose bolt on the shift lever can mimic transmission / clutch issues.

You must be crazy. Those are the highest trained 19 year olds that MMI could put out. They have 6 months of experience under their belt! You think all those shiny new tools are just for show?
