For those of you that are interested a friend has been developing a shock for the DR650. He is using the body and the spring of the stock shock. Everything else is new. It has compression, rebound, and ride height adjustments. I rode his bike last week and it was a huge improvement. I saw the biggest difference on washboards on gravel roads. I just removed my shock and we are going to rebuild it tomorrow night. He already has a completely new shock for the KLR and some Ducatis. We are going to take pictures of the whole thing. I may need some help posting them.
