    east to ride. Loads of torque right off the bat. smooth power delivery. great for riding with two people. everything on this machine is very simple and finding parts for it is a breeze. Not a MX stunt bike but a very capable off-roader. it can get on the freeway and go all day, ride trails and get you home without any problems. perfect for those who may not own a vehicle capable of transporting a motorbike to and from rides. Love this machine

    Used DRZ400 or DR650?

    Ok, let's call this what it is, my mid-life crisis at 56 yrs old. I haven't had a bike since I was around 16 yrs old, so that makes it 40 years. I've wanted one all of those 40 years, but with kids, a busines, wife, etc I always said it was just not practical for me. Now I have more time and less responsibility. So after reading (yes, I actually read a bunch of stuff here first) quite a bit before posting, I think I am down to either a used Suzuki 400 or 650. I don't expect to be "cruising", but want to do some trails riding here in WA state, and be able to ride to the trails at the same time (from Seattle area). I also expect to be a rather fair-weather rider as well. I'm 6'2" about 250bs. A 400 sounds like the perfect bike, but I'm wondering if there is really any benefit (or downfall) to getting a 650 over it. Also particularly interested in whether one has a better maintenance record. The investment in either used is not all that great, as I can get used 400's for $3000-4500 with fairly low miles, and they seem very dependable. I don't seem to see all that much either for sale in the 650's, or even written about them. Comments? Thanks! Dan PS. Also, for anyone responding, I hope to take a Basic rider course end of the month, and wonder if anyone has taken the Intermediate course and found it beneficial.

    Recently purchased this bike in Durango, Colorado. It came with a Vapor gauge and a 7+ gallon tank. Coming from an XR200R, this bike deserves five stars.

    Daily commuter/Fire road ripper. RIP 3/16. Exhaust valve snapped and dropped out into piston at 6k RPM. Head is obliterated, in a million pieces in the shop currently, may get rebuilt at some point...

    Troublesome '93 DR650

    Hey guys, A few weeks ago, I picked up a '93 DR650 from a friend who needed some help (nasty separation, bike was left in garage since august, blahblah)... It's a kickstart that wouldn't fire. Had a dead battery and the carb had fuel in the bowl when i picked it up. I went ahead and cleaned it, though the jets were a little chewed at the top, and the tiny washer that goes in the F/A screw between the spring and washer was bent, so i put one that was almost sized up for it. Had the wrong plugs in it, too (Champions). Intake valves were super loose, while the exhaust valves were tight. The exhaust is aftermarket, but I think the muffler welds are broken because you can spin the can around... so overall it needs some love... I've replaced the spark plugs with ones that were gapped properly, adjusted the valves, and cleaned the carb by soaking the jets and doing the "thread a copper wire through the hole and spin" method. I set the F/A 2 out (Stock, IIRC, is 1 1/4) to accommodate the pipe, and tried giving it a few solid kicks. Nothing... not even a pop. I checked spark- it looked blue, so it's definitely getting it. I used a gauge and i could see it firing Checked compression. My gauge is a little wonky, so it was only showing 60PSI... but other bikes I have only show up to 60psi so i don't know. It's a crappy Harbor freight gauge. I noticed if i didn't pull in the decompression lever and gave the kickstart a solid kick, i could spin the engine... is this a sign of any troubles? I was frustrated by this point and tried starter fluid in one of the spark holes... not even a pop. It's using an aftermarket Acerbis plastic tank that's manual fed (no vacuum petcock), but im wondering if there's any sort of uncapped air intake somewhere that's causing a lean condition and preventing it from firing.. not likely, but curious anyways. Not at all familiar with this machine... Kinda losing hope with this-- any pointers on what I should check / try now?

    Super hefty and durable. Love how smooth it is. Feels like a low, long blade at speed. Very quick around turns, and handles road carving like a big mid-liter sport bike, minus the big mid-liter sport bike center of gravity. Mine came with a Pelican case and 5[ish] gallon tank and bigass skid plate. Pelican case behind the license plate too! Pretty happy for 3400 bones.. no problems in 5321 miles over 26 years... I'm loving this thing more every day. EXCEPTIONAL!

    Recently I sold my CRF250L due to taking a new job with a 104 mile daily commute. I again almost purchased the WR250 but I decided if highway comfort, simplicity, and displacement were my prime concerns that the WR would still not fit my needs. Out of the shop I noticed that it was idling too low and stalling quite a bit. The bike easily reached 80mph for my ride home even though at this speed the vibrations were killer. I rode on it untouched for about 2 weeks and practically paid for expedited shipping from seat concepts. My other first impression of the bike was wondering where they had time to go to home depot and replace the seat with a 4x4 post. The other complaints were the rubber mounted stock pegs that made you feel like you would slip off standing up and the cramped peg location in relation to the seat and the bars. I mean it is cramped for me at 5' 8" 29 inch inseam. Where my last bike became far more fun in the woods the DR felt... a bit much to handle. The stock tires earned their reputation of the name of deathwings being far less capable than the GP22's that came stock on the 250L, yes I missed the GP22's. The rear suspension was thankfully significantly better and only required some dampening adjustment. The front suspension comparatively to the 250L was far far far worse. If you were to mix the rear stock suspension of the 250L with the front of the 650 you would have created the most poorly suspended bike conceived by man. After going from my Racetech setup on the 250L back to whatever Suzuki calls suspension I felt a bit cheated. Now here came the real test was a 329 mile back roads ride from Austin to DFW and back. (my preferred motorcycle proving ground) The average speed limit was still 75 posted and same as last time I was glad I invested in my seat concepts low seat. The bike easily plodded along at 70 - 90 mph with little complaint or trouble minus a bit of excess arm pump and vibration in my right hand. In strong cross winds the DR650 was a bit better planted but the front end due I guess to its horrifically poorly designed nature introduced more wobble than the 250L and with tucking down in wind made the ride a bit harrowing. This go around I was shy on cash and spent my first $270 on bars, grips, seat, and peg lowering kit from JNS engineering. (I also sprung for a 16T front sprocket to mitigate vibration at high speed) I could not repeat could not have made any trip over 50 miles on the stock garbage seat without reconstructive surgery on my rear. The massive upside to this bike is the ease of work on it. A valve job for instance is 4 tools and about 3 hours of work and the best part is no shims just an old fashioned tappet adjuster. The other real test was arriving at my old stomping grounds in Decatur TX at rocky ridge. This is where the 650 showed me all of it's additional weight feeling nearly unwieldy with the exception of its lower reach to the ground. My lap times which were 28 minutes modded 32 ish minutes stock on the 250L climbed up to 36 minutes on the 650 with the mixture of nearly unusable front suspension and god awful tires. At the minimum before another dirt trip this bike will have new tires and front springs. Stock for stock on the Street/ Highway the DR650 substantially outperforms the 250L but in the dirt the 250L is a good bit better for the job. As far as modding goes however I think I can achieve near if not better performance from the 650 with less money. Right off the bat for instance front and rear suspension will run about 600 to 700 less than a Racetech setup for the 250L so time will tell if this review flips. I had about $2400 into the 250L and as of this week about $307 into the 650, even if I go all out with suspension, pipe, and pumper carb I would only be out $1300. Food for thought.

    DR650 Gearbox Issues

    Also posted on AdvRider. Anyone who has had a DR650 gearbox let go can you tell me... 1. Year of bike. 2. Mileage. Just trying to see if there's anything in common or something that can be done to prevent this happening to anyone else. So far: 2001 60,000km 2001 55,000km

  20. I like building custom bikes, and my current project (a Shovelhead digger style chopper) is coming to an end. For my next project I'm thinking about a "street tracker" that is, a street legal version of a dirt track racing bike. I like the look of these bikes, and think something like this would be a great bike for riding the very twisty mountain roads in my area (Vancouver, WA). I currently ride them on my Husky 610 pretty frequently, and while I love the Husky and the ability to handle dirt fire roads I have been thinking that for "asphalt only" days the extreme high and long travel suspension of the Husky isn't needed (nor the knobbies). In thinking about the bike I've been looking at the dedicated frame builders, like J&P who all build 100% Chome Moly frames. I've sort of settled on a single, for simplicity, light weight, and coolness. I'd like something sort of classic looking when I'm done, so I am back to favoring an air-cooled engine (though I totally get that it's a compromise with performance over a liquid cooled single. So: among air cooled singles which one do you think would work best for such a project. The XR-650 seems one obvious choice. The Suzuki DR-650 the alternative. I'm not that familiar with either, to be honest. I guess Yamaha had the XT-600 many years ago, and they seem to be still around, too. Your thoughts?
  21. I have put several thousand miles on the CRF and it has been flawless, gotten good fuel economy and done the job. I have outfitted it adventure style with simple racks, rotopax, and bags to carry multi-day trips. I quick background on me: 25 years in the saddle, former enduro rider, have had at least a dozen bikes from 80cc to 1300cc cruisers. Two weekends ago I hit the road for my first overnighter and about a 250 mile ride. I loaded up the CRF and headed out on a windy day. Here I am, throttle pinned with a head wind and an incline and the little bike refuses to go above 63 mph for a good half mile then she creeps up to a 65-67. I am no lightweight at 215lbs and was carrying about 80lbs or gear so it puts me right at the bike’s weight limit. I had to hop on a major interstate with a 75mph speed limit for about 3 miles, I was flat out and being passed like I was standing still. Not a safe situation when traffic is jockeying about because you are in the way. Obviously, I can change the front sprocket and do the stage 1 mods for about $800 to help the bike achieve a few more mph in the situation but it would still be all it could do. Then there is the ‘ole sub-frame breaking threat that looms in my mind. On the other hand, the CRF is a really neat package for what it is and I do like the bike a whole lot. I then got a change to check out a 2015 DR650 and wondered why in the heck I got this CRF250L in the first place. I then remember why I didn’t consider the DR: Carbed, ugly, dated, tiny fuel tank… The DR felt only slightly more heavy but just as nimble and has gobs and gobs of torque. 75 mph was not a whole lot of effort for the bike and the ergonomics are pretty similar to the CRF. OK, so the DR is carb’ed (but ran great and something I am used to) it looks like something out of 1985, and is oil cooled (actually better for dependability in my mind), but it seems like a no-brainer for me to trade up. Slap on a big fuel tank, get back in the groove of carbs again and done. What do you folks think? Do any of you have a DR650 with experience with both bikes?
