For the centre stand plus over 300 pages of DR waffle inc 18" wheel stuff try http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...35295&page=316

For an 18 litre IMS tank and panniers/ racks try http://www.amcr.com.au/motorcycles_for_sale.htm

Or just get a 32 litre Safari tank aussie made and great

Staintune pipe and dyno jet kit transforms bike from softy plodder to proper 650 single power

Bash plate B&B or Whipps

Decent bars and risers well worth doing

Protect your arse and call http://homepage.powerup.com.au/~maddoggy/ and tell him you want aseat like job No 89E. 2-3 hours comfort and standing for off road stil good. Fits with Safari tank but different i think with IMS tank

Heated grips - Vince Strang in Inverell NSW plus loads of other advice

14 tooth front sprocket is good, stock is v.high geared for off road, take both with you and swap out as you need to

Springs and Dyno jet + chain rollers otherwise it'll rattle like buggerery on the dirt http://www.kientech.com/ don't know who does suspension fitting in WA. Springs tranform the bike. Do it!

MT21's are great - why bother with 18" wheel, probably bugger up centre stand anyway. Also a screen/fairing is handy, lots available (twisted throttle MCA the best i reckon) look but look a bit gay to me so i "magivered" my own one - Burren Rider may be able to help you more here as his looked sweet on his 400

Good luck ,and kiss goodbye to $3-3,500K!!! Happy riding
Here is a pic of mine with extra large fairing for a home made roadbook/navigation lunch box thing

MM,

Thanks for the info on the McKay stuff! Was it expensive? Not that I mind paying a few extra $$$ for quality but the first thing the minister will say is "Why? How much will it cost?"

Thanks again!
JTB

after considering selling the dr ive decided to keep it and get the suspension sorted out and possibly looking at getting some supermoto set up going for commuting and keep an adv package in the shed ie: D606's and the safari tank ... does anyone know how much it would cost to do all this ????

Safari Ready DR650???

OK , so ive got a 06 DR650 , has got Staintune and 150main jet, B&B Bash Plate, Risers and Rentals and a Set of MT21's. Now im from perth and am seriously considering competeing in the Aus Safari next year and am questioning the ability of the DR to do the 5200kms in 8 days well enough to be reasonably fast! And maybe evebn slightly compeditive! Having seen the inability of the stock suspension to do any jumps i know thats a definate but not sure wether to go all out on the stock shocks or look at replacing them with DRZ equipment ! It's either all out on the DR650 or trade for something like a 525 or something of that manner!

Any idea's or links would be greatly appreciated!!

Doing it on the DR will prove you have skills and it is not just the bike making you look good. They suck a bit at jumps even with uprated suspension but are great at everything else especially longevity.

hmmmm what about a team of W.A DR riders to do the rally in 08 if we all run the same bikes we may need less parts and they'd be cheaper especially if we got mucullochs or savage to sponsor us, and also if someone crashes out then we have a spare bike for parts too. If any one is seriously interested then let me know... I see this as preperation for the dakar
