2000 DR650 -has much changed?

Recommended Posts

I'm contemplating the purchase of a 2000 DR650. Is this a good year to get? Has there been many upgrades on new models? Any bad years?

Thanx.

I bought an '01 without reservation...this is a pretty safe bike to buy used as long as they can show some maintenance and you get a good feeling from the seller. However, there were base gasket issues (not sure what years...but I believe 2000 would be affected). I checkied, and mine has the nwewer metal types gasket. If it has been replaced with the metal one, I don't thinK there are any concerns.

We have a '00 and a '05. Besides the base gasket already mentioned (our '00 base gasket has never leaked), they have slightly different plastic headlight "fairings". For all intents and purposes, they are the same.
