Wanted DR650SE OEM rear suspension "dog bones"
« on: July 16, 2014, 09:58:06 am »
I have a customers DR at the workshop. The previous owner got it lowered and in addition the "dog bones" replaced with a set originating from a KL650A (longer).
The plush rear suspension was thereby transformed to marshmallow pap :( way too soft for the short but not light weight new owner.

Long story short I need a set of the OEM DR650SE dog bones. Anyone has got?
Please let me know!

The supplier is still messing me around with the fat bar clamps. One day they say end of the week, end of the week they say "we don't know".
