the almighty TY is currently spread out over my bench
when you start chasing parts for a 38 year old bike you learn stuff.
first sold in Oz in 74
most of the info around is US sourced where it was first sold in 75

I have FCR's on one beveldrive all the same.

Well I live in oz, just bought my first bike, a brand new dr650, already removed stand switch and bypassed clutch switch, trail tech, b&b rack and bash plate and an oiler on the way. Done 40kms so far but wanting to know people's opinions on a good run in procedure from start to finish.

Thanks
Shannon

Get it made at a local engineering workshop. Give them the carb and explain what you want. Mine cost 40 bucks.

No worries! Just remembered I also gave them the pages printed from MXRob's tutorial that show photos of the adapter on the carb, and the required dimensions. If you haven't read it:

https://docs.google.com/present/view...bQ&hl=en&pli=1

They made it a very tight fit and I had to do some grinding to the outside of the intake bell with a Dremel to make it fit correctly. Now I just have to finish putting the bike back together so I can try all the mods that have been done

Just got a email back from MX Rob. He wil make a few next week for US30 each. I wil get it shipped here with my carb and a few other goodies. Hopefully I will save some on shipping

Question help pleas

Hi everybody, can anyone pleas tell me where can I find posts on this forum regarding DR650 gearbox rebuilds?...at least I think that's what I need anyway...the teeth on my output shaft that hold the front sprocket are completely rounded off so that involves taking apart the gearbox doesn't it?
