    :lol3 maybe keep this one hidden then. this is one of the adv inmates iwho was n the vid sliding his DR into corners. apparently racing vintage mx bikes helps with wrestling the bush pig into corners like that...

    I just picked up a countershaft seal retainer from my local dealer.
    It is part No 24751-32E00 and is listed as a part for the 2013 DR650.
    So it looks like it has been specifically manufactured for the DRs.
    Cost from my dealer at Wauchope was $20.27.

    Cheers all, hope this clears up any confusion.

    All this talk of DR countershaft seal retainers are making me worried ...... How often do these things pop out ? Sounds like I might need one .

    Had the choice between a trail ride on the 'berg today or a stroll on the DR. DR won out and a nice little ride through the hinterland of the not so Sunny coast. Got to test how waterproof the new Klim gear was on the way home and pretty stoked with it. Not enough dirt but still a few km on it.

    bit of a bump on this earlier post. 0405canvet did the same mods to my DR as his. while the DJ kit was good, my butt dyno reckoned his setup has a bit more punch again AND also keeps the fuel economy up too. if you like to tinker i'd suggest at least trying a bit of BST magic before shelling out for a pumper carbie.

    Tank will hold 20lts good for 350kms or more, similar to the old tenere in picture, you could fuel up together, rare these days to not find a servo within that range, however your huge safari tank will belt you half way across Australia with barely a refill, brilliant if planning a true outback adventure.

    Thanks - You must be realy close to the $ as pulled 10L out of it after a 140km of riding. Was surprised in a good way. Its now off the bike and about to appear in the classifieds as the Safari is fitted and will stay on. Its been lots of fun setting the bike up even though it was mostly done when I got it. A few things to go and its done. :)

    Not getting any real info in the main forum, so I'll try here..

    My DR has stock suspension with stiffer springs front and rear, emulators in the front and gold valve in the rear.I bought an 01 YZ125 cheap yesterday with a stuffed motor to fix and log off.But my DR can't stop looking at the forks and shock on that little prick :)I realise they will need to be resprung and revalved.Who's done the conversion front and rear?Is it really worth it? Does it improve the bike that much?Any negatives?
