    I will say, the motor was a gem. With the exception of the advance mechanism, I never had a problem with the motor itself. The wiring, starter, coils, points, brakes, swingarm bushing, handlebar controls, and carbs on the other hand... nothing but problems. Especially the carbs.

    Chain drive. The good ones had drum brakes. But then I digress.

    So true. I sold mine 2 years ago and now realize what an amazing unicorn that bike really is while daydreaming of a replacement. If only the dr650 was 75lbs lighter.
