Hey,
I took of the swingarm of my BIG today and i think i will have to replace the needle bearings. does anyone of you know the exact type of the bearings? i want to buy them in a local shop, cause i donīt want to wait 2 weeks for delivery. the bike should be ready till christmas, cause later, time is limited.
cheers

Want to lower your DR 750 or 800. This mob in England can supply rear spring and shock.

Blood money it is and that BIG of yours is just a bully.

Hi Seppo.. I think your better option is to buy an All Balls kit for a DR650.. it comes with seals, bearings and bearing races.. and its not expensive at all.. i got a kit on ebay for about $20 i think it retails around $50.. way cheaper than buying OEM parts..

Chris/Bluesman, I lived in Germany for a few years & used to bump into those Irish Tarmac lads now & again. Most are/were Irish travellers & used to move all over Europe to do work like this for private people & town councils etc when they could. You were right to watch them & inspect the work as they went along as it was for cash & you'll never catch up on them if anything goes wrong. Hope the driveway is still holding up, sorry haven't been keeping up to date with the DR thread for a long time, have alot of catching up to do. Happy Christmas to all DR owners out there.

Robs.

Hi all,
Hey Robs,
I got my bike back after service and engine work forks swinger etc.
It' been about 4 years since I started it I forgot how good the big single sounds ( I even thaught about giving it away about 2 years ago )
After the new year and when I get my garage sorted I will start modifying clocks (again ) for warning lights and finishing some cosmetic work, think I might make a new carrier
( I like the look of Nave's )
I think I might get the seat reshaped again it's a bit high at the back.
Mount new headlight(s)
dont know yet
Anyway here are some pics hope you guys like them.






Merry Christmas to you all
Chris

The Domi didn't have a chance really, though it was better off road than the DR it couldn't come close to matching it for grunt and road munching

Running up the beach the Dr would laugh at the sand where as the Domi would groan a little, but still a good friend that I will miss

Old pic



Chris, very nice , I'm more and more warming to the Big DRs road abilities in the real world I have little problem keeping up with my mates KTM690 SM in the tight going even without the motard wheels , but they sure would allow me to relax a bit more though , but now Ive lost domi I will have to go back to Universal tires for the odd sand dune excursion , though the rear road tire was ok on the metal

Again, nice

Hi gang

I need help. I need the center tank cover. I lost one on UK eBay for GBP7.50 because the seller wouldn't ship to South Africa. Anyone has one for sale? Please help.

Nr 13 in the picture below...

that'll be the famed reliability of the S.A postal service putting people off mate

who was it in the uk you won it from "enduro spares" ? ive just had loads of bits off him and to be fair he is a decent chap. Id be worried to sending stuff to S.A to be honest. We have sent loads of bits to family members and it never arrives.




I got my new frame back from the powdercoaters today.

He did it in shiney shiney illegal (as its not very healthy for the workers) gloss black for me. Its the same stuff i had put on my cr500 frame and its tough as buggery. Yokes are all done for the wr front end. And i have some nice new yoko bearings to go in the headstock. I think ill be drilling and tapping in some grease nipples for the headstock and swingarm to aid with servicing. Im getting excited about starting to put the new beast together :) At least i have my other assembled dr to strip as i go so i cant really forget how to re-assemble it

I hear you Amazon at some point completely stopped sending stuff here.

Yep, it was from "Enduro spares". I didn't buy it yet, first tried to sort out the postal issue, but then this morning it was gone.

With all the problems we've had I'm yet to loose a parcel (I collect model trains too). I've only lost one parcel in my life - sent from Sheffield to London and it never got there. Turns out the guy at the PO also collects N scale trains and swallowed a few parcels. Had his ass fired in the process...
