My first DR650 and loving it!

Recommended Posts

Congrats DR6fifty ! I picked my brand new DR650 today. I got the black one. It started raining while I was driving it home so I will have to wait until tomorrow to see what she runs like. I have a KLR650 and I have always wanted to know how the KLR compares to the DR650 . I have read this site and others about DR650 vs KLR650 and now I will find out first hand. I put 8 whole miles on it driving it home and I can already tell that it feels much lighter and the brakes are much, much better. The turn kill switch is better on the DR650 and the seat did not bother me that much because my back side was still used to the DRZ seat. I can't wait to put some miles on it and see what it will do. I think I will be real happy !

Congrats on the new bike DR6fifty! Man, an 06 with only 875 miles for $3600? The pipe and the Pro taper set-up came with it? What a bargain! Tons of great information here on the DR forum for your bike. Enjoy! :applause:

What type of pipe is that. The bike looks awesome.

It looks like a D&D system but their web site does not list the DR650 as a model they make a pipe for? You don't think one of them thar shade tree mechanics shoe-horned it on there do ya? :applause:

I actually did the pipe and bars...I had the mid pipe from a buddy and bought a canister from the local shop it was a take off from a wrecked zx6. Thanks and congrats to all of you guys who just got a new bike.

Thanks again C Blank

Wonderful bikes. I've put 8k km on my bike since I got it and I'm now sold on dual sports as the best of everything. Waiting on IMS tank (black), black side panels, Suzuki Accessory rear rack, and a dynojet kit. Beyond that, I think I'll be happy to ride it into the ground over the next 10-15 years.
