    Hello all

    I have acquired a cheapie 98 DR650 as a runabout while I fix the Freewind. It’s a bit rough but with the help of a friend it’s pulling well with the Mikuni pumper carb that came on it. Anyway, it needs a couple of bits:

    – A rear spring that is not made of marshmallow
    – OEM exhaust is missing the heatshield
    – An indicator lens that isn’t cracked and missing a chunk out of it
    – Rear brake light spring (albeit I have borrowed the one off the Freewind for now)

    It’s also missing a bash plate but I’m planning to knock something up out of an old and damaged road sign that found its way to me. Any tips on how to do so would be good to get.

    Thanks – Chasio

    PS – First post and already asking for help πŸ™‚ As a counter I am now able to offer a recovery service with trailer and a bed for the night, provided I’m at home…

    I wouldn’t mind a header pipe to play around with.

    Hi Eddie

    This DR is proving more problematic than expected… if I can’t get it going right I may well part it out. If so I will let you know.

    Cheers – Chasio

    Currently suffering from complete electrical death. Not the battery or any of the fuses I can find (main fuse plus two nearby). Am off to start disassembling in an bit. Maybe the ignition switch? Will catch up with the assistance pages later on. Cheers

    I have a flash fork brace and two guards for the engine casing, unused, going to a good home should someone want to offer me something….
    For a DR650 of course, two nice circular heavy steel guards, shaped to fit perfectly on the DR650….
    Shiny fork brace, well made and easy to install, just couldn’t be bothered for both of these items…
    So, brand new!

    Make me an offer and I will ship them for free…..
    Cheers

    Had any luck? YOu got no power at all, no lights, indicators etc?

    I’d guess look for a short somewhere. The main loom where it goes past the headstock between the forks can rub on some bikes, make sure the battery terminals are properly tightened.

    Hi. Best guess is it’s the ignition barrel. I can get it to work sometimes and fuses are all good, so I’m thinking it’s not a short circuit. Could be wrong I guess. Currently soaking it daily with CRC and it has been working OK. Worst case for repair (I think) is a break deep in the harness somewhere. I’ll have another look around the headstock for signs of wear. Cheers πŸ™‚

    Re fork brace and guards… if I can get it reliable I’d be interested, but they may have gone by the time I am confident in the bike!

    I have a few wiring things, console, ignition switch and stuff for a DR650, spare parts from a 2009. Of course it will fit other bikes….
    If you are interested just let me know, I can provide the inventory and photos…(If I can figure out how to post them)
