DR650SE - Front Caliper parts search
« on: May 20, 2014, 12:57:51 pm »
Hi guys,

I'm trying to track down a replacement front caliper mount for my DR. It seems that I lost the metal insert for it (without my knowledge) and my pad has slowly eating through the bracket.

Does anyone have a 2nd spare that I can purchase at a decent price please? Or maybe refer me to someone?
New it's just over R1k so I'd love to track down a cheaper 2nd part. I did find someone stripping a DR in PTA but understandably they want to sell me the full caliper, which is just as expensive as the new part.

It's the bracket and insert marked as No.11 on this pic.

Find out from Dusty Rusty who she sold the Djebels to? The calipers are the same. (Franarossi?)

Sounds like a big bargain. You are getting a whole caliper for the price of 1 part 11. AFAIK a replacement caliper is 4-5K

Haha hey Pielas. :P Thanks for the feedback. If I needed the whole caliper you'd definitely be giving me a great deal.
I'm also bummed about that broken starter switch as that is what is broken on mine too.  :-[

If you change your mind about breaking it up let me know.

@Chopperpilot: You sure of that? I thought they were different. http://www.cmsnl.com/suzuki-dr200-se-1996-2000-usa_model15946/partslist/83925.html#results <- that one doesn't look like the DR650 one at all. Or do I have the wrong model/year?

Djebel DR 250. Not DR 200 SE. Dusty Rusty had 2. Sold them both. One was a parts bike, "Bodyparts". I once swapped my 650's caliper with the Djebel's, when the Djebel's wasn't properly releasing. Identical! Never swapped them back again. The DR 200s I know well. Four have been through my hands. As you mentioned, not the same!
