UPDATE: Rather than try to dissect and mine the DR650 mega-thread, I've started a few threads, each devoted to a different category. Sort of a file cabinet. Everyone is encouraged to add useful content to these threads. DR650SE INFORMATION THREAD LIST Topic #1- CONTROLS/INSTRUMENTATION Topic #2- SEATS Topic #3- CRASH PROTECTION Topic #4- SUSPENSION/CHASSIS Topic #5- BRAKES Topic #6- TIRES, TUBES & WHEELS Topic #7- BODYWORK/WINDSCREENS Topic #8- FUEL Topic #9- ELECTRICAL/LIGHTING Topic #10-CARBURETOR/INTAKE Topic #11-EXHAUST Topic #12-ENGINE/CHAINS & SPROCKETS Topic #13-PROBLEMS/FAILURES Topic #14-LUGGAGE & RACKS/ACCESSORIES Topic #15-LINKS, WRITE-UPS, & PICTORIALS [Or, we could call it "'The DR650 Thread' Thread"...] At over 31,500+ replies, "The DR650 Thread" is a little daunting, particularly for new DR owners, or those thinking of getting one. On one hand, most of The DR650 Thread "regulars" are a helpful bunch, and nobody really seems to mind answering the same questions again and again. On the other hand, there's a lot of information in there- how to posts-complete with pics, upgrades, ideas, etc. Sometimes, easily finding what you need in there can be a little frustrating. I have some ideas for putting together an information index, primarily culled from posts in The DR650 Thread, but certainly not limited to that one source. I don't mind putting in some time to organize it [provided a few (dozen?) members will also step up and help mine the data], but before I even look down that road, I'd like to hear from the DR650 crowd... Do we even need this?
