Would do it again 10 times over with the same crew.
But first, billet vs ...not.
I already have my own unicorn that rides a xt250 and a F700gs

Interesting. When I ride in the bush here in Oz, about half of all bikes I meet are DRs, and of those, some are DRZs.
I wish I could hit the like button several times for that post.
Way...way too many pages for me to wade through. Are there any major upgrades based on model years? Sort of like the pre 08 KLR's having some advantages.
Thanks. I have had 3 KLRs now and it may be time to try a DR
Nah, you're not alone :)
96 and up all the the same, nothing major. gaskets ,retainers etc.. 2017 finally got loctite on the nsu screws, thats pretty major.
So a low mileage 97 or 98 could be upgraded to be as good as a 2017?
Not really it's the same thing.
Yes. Somebody will remember the years that needs the starter torque limiter, not a big deal.
I guess I mean with the retainer and lock tite the screws.
I loved my old KLR. But I got tired of picking it up. I've ridden DR's ever since and love them more.
Hadn't heard of a starter torque limiter. I will research it.
Any other infamous issues?
ETA: Google says...1998 and early 1999 models have the issue.
Purple frames have 12 more horsepower.
The 2003 (I think) got the metal base gasket and since I have no desire to have to replace a leaking base gasket, would prefer that already done by Suzuki.
Where to look, paper will not have this tab.
Hard to say how you get a good "sense" about people. I sense I can relate to most everyone here on the DR forum. ER and others welcomed me here and gave good advice. Had a nice opportunity to share a dinner with TrophyHunter Ken and family that totally affirmed that "sense." Became apparent early on I'd like to meet and ride with Cyberdos. I truly enjoy not just DR related, but also other experiences folks here relate. Would I had time and means to visit one and all.NC, ER, CD, BD, and you F&F host of others here contribute to my sense of belonging on the planet. All we all do is ride around like a tribe of Indians knowing we do belong here. Guess what I'd like to say, and what you Rick are saying, is this world offers a lot to those who give and receive!
you really should read at least 1000 pages before asking questions.
Just kidding, welcome. Ask away
That F700 appears to be radically lowered. How does the changed geometry affect handling?
