    Lets light this pipe one more time and pass it around.
    I was reading the thread about Gaspipe's awesome XR650R project.... it got me thinking, if someone spent that kind of effort and money on a DR650, couldn't it be some sweetheart of an Adv bike?

    Anyway, if some of you creative folks have a favorite project DR, show it off here. I just wanna learn and enjoy. I just can't get over how cheaply folks will sell their under-appreciated DR650's.... it ain't right

    Zapp22, Thankyou for starting a DR650 thread! :clap :clap I was about to, but you beat me to it. I agree that this bike is underappreciated, even Peter Egan of CW fame agrees.

    Mine is getting tricked out every month with more on the way.
    So far: Eibach fork springs, Corbin seat, DJ jetting, skid plate, IMS tank, Renthal RM bend bars, Moose Racing hand guards, mirror extenders, Racer T exhaust (wav file here: http://savefile.com/files/8597285 ) 14-16t sprockets, Kientech airscrew, DRZ250 tail light, Suz tail rack, L-side engine case cover...planned: rear suspension and tires.

    This may sound wierd, but I'm 6'2" and I like the look of XRL's being up in the air, I would like to get DR up higher on it's suspension,it looks more purposeful for the dirt, anyway to do this without breaking the bank?

    this is with the 19" front wheel and high fender, corbin seat, updated headlight fairing, yoshimura yrd slip-on, and that's it.

    currently am running the 21" with high fender, Cee Bailey shield, stock muffler, and maxxis 6006 tires.

    Right on guys, those are some great lookin bikes. Keep 'em coming.

    So far each pic makes me want to throw a leg over and go adventuring. Of course I find a simple, utilitarian machine to be very sexy when it comes to adventure bikes so I'm a bit jaded :D . Gosh, I feel kinda like I'm looking at another mans lady.....you don't mind?

    Its a full staintune system with a larger header pipe - a definite hp improvement. It has a pleasant but purposeful note.

    With the end cap (baffle?) out it goes even harder - but its a bit too noisy that way. I like to stay on speaking terms with my neighbours! Plus noise can be a bit tiring on longer trips even with earplugs in.

    Mine's pretty tame in comparison to most of yours', but I thought this thread was such a cool idea I wanted to support it.

    OK, one last question about your scoot, are those the kings kt966? and if so, can you give a little run down as far as wear, how they ride on street(noisy?), you know, the basics?

    your bike is what mine aspires to be, just add a aqualine and it would be perfect. thanks

    Hi Rockt, I notice you have the S06 w/s and it's laid down like a sportbike shield. How is it for buffeting and effectiveness? I took mine off as it was terrible! Turns out it was probably installer error (me) as I had it too vertical like a cruiser shield. I was holding up to the bike yesterday at the same angle as yours. If you tell me it works good, I'll re-install it...thanks!

    I think it's cool! What paint did you use and how is it holding up? Did you have to do a lot of sanding on the tank to get it so smooth? You should put some military markings on it now!

    Does anyone now own a KLR that used to own a DR or vice versa? I have a DRZ and would like a 2nd more pavement friendly commuter/DS bike...any thoughts?
