DR780 Club !

DR780 Club ! An exclusive little club. Entry by 110mm Procycle piston
I thought it might be interesting and useful for a thread dedicated to the Mighty New 780 kit for the DR650, so that those who have them can contribute with there experience's, settings, dyno runs etc. I imagine there will be be a bunch of different pipe/carb/airbox combo's and probably even more jetting combos. Everyone will have got one for the same reason, No substitute for cubes
But, everyone will use theres differently. Some will just get a Sunday Blat and others will do Big miles.

Mine left the US today. I have a ride in a couple of weeks, thens its time to go BIG

Oooohhhh.... I am so green with envy. I will be joining this club if its the last thing I do... Which it may be if my old lady finds out...

I can't wait to hear everyone go on and on about how great their 780's are. Good idea for a thread.

At the moment my airbox, carb, header and muffler are stock. Ive been thinking I might leave them that way, fit the 780 and run it in like that. Once run in I can fiddle with the others and get it on a dyno to tune it properly.

I would settle for your 725 impressions.

725 is great - only gone bigger as want to road race it - it is possible that because 725 revs more it is better for my purpose but I need to experience 780 to find out. Only done 1000 k on 780 but very impressed, dyno and final jetting soon...then a track day to see if it was such a good idea!

Bumping this because I could not find it. I searched for 785 not 780. My mistake. I'm curious about the dyno run and overall impressions.

With the 90 mm DR 800 stroke you get a DR 855 with the 110 mm bore.

thought this was a bit cool also (though only a 725)
Great road also and picture quality, worth a look
