G'Day Inmates, many seem to enjoy DR650 build ups so here's a new one . It'll be hard to top many of the "inspiration machines" already on the forum but I'll post my work for kicks. Warning... it'll be a slow build up. The DR... Stock 1997 DR650 - bought by the-side-of-the-road for AUD$2100. Added Racetech front fork springs and an 8kg rear spring, dynojet carb kit and B&B bash plate. More details on these later, as i'll be dismantling and starting fresh. Plan: 1. Frame paint 2. KTM Marzochi front end 3. 18" rear wheel (lc4/8 ?) 4. black rims 5. Oversize tank 6. 520 Chain & sprockets (14cs 46?rear) 7. Fresh plastics (black or blue/white scheme) 8. FCR-MX carb 9. GSXR muffler 10. Twin headlamp mod 11. reduce weight 12. fastway pegs Application: All terrain. In all honesty, I would prefer a new CRF or WR but since I have the DR and have the need for farkle, here goes. I'm seeking advice; powdercoat or spray the frame? I've read various posts and remain undecided.
