I can just see the first cop pulling you over wondering WTF is that ??

Mezo.
yep they'll wonder where the frame number is as well because its covered up by the fairing bracket and i don't think they'll be to impressed with the repositioned vin plate.

I hope they never ever make me get a road worthy on it.

I found some pictures.
A stock drz shock in a drz frame (note the distance between the top mount,the frame and reservoir)


The modified drz shock in the dr frame. The top mount is a lot closer to the frame than it is on the drz.


A shot showing angle i had to put on the reservoir so that it cleared the frame.

There is no way the shock i have would have fitted without having the reservoir moved so there must be a difference between model/years.
You also need to shim the top mount with a few washers and shave a few mm of the linkage where the shock bolts to it.

If you have an entire drz front end (forks, wheel and light brackets) It will swap with no real troubles but you will need to reposition the key and maybe reduce the steering lock depending on what tank you use.
If you only get the forks you will need to make a caliper relocate bracket to fit the dr650 disc and you will need to make a few axle spacers and a light bracket.

Found some pics of the over sized oil cooler that i have started modifying to fit the dr.

13 row oil cooler bought from fleabay.


its the same width as the old one but its a bit longer. Them old dr ones can take a beating that is the one of the older bike and it still isn't leaking.


its a bit deeper to


The start of modifying the inlet and outlet to fit the stock dr oil lines.
The one next to it is the first attempt but it didn't weld very well because it was second hand and very dirty so it ended up having a leak.

Hey Joe,

What was the oil cooler from Joe, ive been looking at them also on fleabay but was unsure which way to go, are you going to mount it under the light or keep it next to the frame downtube (stock) ?

Ah yeah how much did it cost as well Joe

Mezo.

The one i got was new and its quite good quality. I think it cost $50 + postage and it was called a 13 row oil cooler
Here you go i found an expensive one for you ebay ninja.
http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Al-Transmissi...item19b2f39a61
I have seen them come up as cheap as $30
I was going to mount it where the old one was but i'll see what it looks like when the new tank gets here.

690 tank will be a tight fit with the bigger cooler, mine just hits the cooler guard.

Was that just the engine or including packaging materials?
