First gen Dr650s...

Recommended Posts

Hey all, new here.

I’m going to look at what I believe is a 95 dr650s. The owner said it’s a 96 but it’s a kickstart bike. I thought 96 started the e-start generation. 

The bike has 12k on the clock and has a fer aftermarket goodies. He’s the second owner and the first was his buddy. All the maintenance was done at a local Moto shop. 

I’ll be getting as a trade and Im just wondering what I should be on the lookout for when I go check out the bike, common issues that should be addressed, etc...

      Low hours (111Hrs) well kept bike. Ready to ride!
      A great trail bike, with some small changes it would be a great super moto or street/trail bike also.

      Valves checked and as always in spec.
      .46 front springs, 7.6 rear (for 190lbs trail rider, this is one step stiffer over stock, OEM springs included)
      Rekluse 3.0 Core clutch
      HD tubes front and rear
      BRP bark busters and shields
      Bullet Proof billet radiator guards
      EE Skid plate

      Fuel tank sock
      TM design chain guard
      Golan super mini fuel filter

      KTM hard parts billet 3X clamps, 22 offset
      New rear bearings/seals/spacers (OEM)
      New Heim bearing
      New SKF fork seals
      You can save $700 if you want me to pull out the Rekluse and put the OEM clutch back in and remove the Scott's.
      and the really cool KTM brief case!

      I will work with you on shipping the bike but it would be best to meet face to face.

      3.4 gal oversize tank included also (Not pictured)

      All offers considered!

      Anyone have any unbiased opinion if they were buying a new dual sport.   Would you go with the new Honda CRF450L or the Beta 430rrs?   Why

      I have a 2001 dr650 that dies whenever I give it a little gas.  The bike has a procycle jet kit, along with the modified air box and a DG muffler.  The bike ran fine until I drilled the slide and slightly clipped the spring (conservatively on both).  After re-assembling, it will start fine and idle fine until I give it gas.  I checked to make sure the small o-ring for the vacuum line was still there and it is.  I've took the carb apart and put it back together a few times now looking for anything but it all seems clean and in good shape.  I have also checked the small fuel filter and it is clear.  Any help would be appreciated.
