Dopra - which front fender is that? Rally Raid KTM?
It is replica, polish produce.
Thanks - I sort of want one!
Your bike is great.
i wanted something like that, too. i made do w/this - the fender is from an r6 yamaha; the fork protectors are standard rm-series, from the rm suzuki that the forks came from...
(yesterday, i installed a 320mm rotor - now i have brakes!)
Thanks! RM250 plus 320 rotor is going on my DR in the next couple weeks.
be sure you get the right rotor - when i swapped the rm front end on my bike, i used the rm's hub/axle assembly and laced the wheel to it. so i needed to get a rotor that fit the rm wheel. stock dr650 caliper works fine.

Very good traction on my DR, I love this bike
How does she ride? Any thing you do not like about it?
you´ve done a nice job! This winter I rebuilt my 96 and also installed a KTM-front end. In fact, it´s a Husaberg front end featuring a 48 mm WP fork. I only made one shortcut by leaving the stock lower bearing race in the frame after a quick testfit showed that they matched the DR-Z400 bearings I had bought. They didn´t. I only recovered a normal feeling and good handling after I had taken the forks out once more to replace the race with the one that had come with the new bearing.
Another topic was the stock KTM 260 mm brake rotor of the new fork. OK for an offroad-bike with 30 kg less, but not OK for city-trafic, let alone 2up. I found a slightly used set of MotoMaster 320 mm floating disc plus adapter for 100 Euro and mated it with the DR master and the DR brake lines, which solved the brake-problem. I guess with the T63 mounted the tire will be the limiting factor on asphalt, but as soon as you ride this combo with more roadworthy tires you will notice how much weaker than stock the smaller disc is. BTW, stock meant SS brake lines and sinter pads with the original forks and brakes.
Thank You, put here Your thread with modifications, T63 is very good tire, I do not ride very much on asphalt, 70% offroad, but I have to change my front tire. D952 was really good in my last bike, HP2 Enduro, but in DR it is not good on fast turning in sand or mud. I will change it on Pirelli Scorpion PRO. Suspensions work really good
Front brake is OK, I installed TRW pads, new brake fluid, service pump and brake caliper. Brake is OK for me.
Very nice work you've done on the DR
I think you are going to hurt the swingarm with that sidestand foot enlargement, if/when you drop the bike on it's left side.
Mine is already trashed from contact with the sidestand, even without the foot enlarger.
I change my rear luggage racks, from TT HP2 enduro, really nice, and not to big
That's a very nice looking rack.
Its amazing that after so years. If you look at all the bikes that have been modified, that so many parts are exactly the same. But there are so many ways of doing other things.
More great pics of the really nicely set up DR650! It looks more like a KTM with the Acerbis tank, low front fender and BIG forks. Very nice work!
Your design really "modernizes" the DR and brings it into the 21st Century.
I hope you get the chance to load up your bike and ride to Mongolia. (Bring water wings rafts ... like the other Polish guys that did it on KTM!)
