Extended Highway Travel on DR650

Recommended Posts

I have a '05 KLR650 and a '07 DR650 and the DR650 runs at 80-85 mph without any problems, the KLR seems to run out of steam at 75mph. For freeway travel the DR is just faster so I was wondering if many people have traveled for extended trips on the freeway and did they have any problems overheating or major oil usage. My KLR seems to burn oil past 75 so I wanted to see if there were any problems with the DR650.

I plan on taking the DR650 on a thousand mile trip to this spring and was trying to plan ahead.

Thanks in advance for your response,

RandyC

KLRs have a rep for oil burning... DRs do not... neither of my DR650s have had an appetite for oil
