Hi Peeps, I have a help and wanted combo thread here. Got hold of a Dr650 2007 with seriously BLOWN motor. She ran without oil. I can get a motor in Rustenburg, but it is from a Dr650Rse. It is a "Dakar" style looking bike. After Google it seems the motor is different to 2007. Is it worth considering though?
The wanted is of course "do you have Dr650 motor lying around"? Or a friend with one...
The bike is just so nice, it would be an sin to scrap her.

I edited the header for clarity. Le Cap

A DR650RSE is a 1990-1992 DR and the motor is different (my avatar pic is one). Not sure if it will fit in the frame as that is different as well. How much are they asking for the motor?

R 8500. It appears to have done 50 000 km. I would rather the right motor.

1996 tot huidiglik is dieselfde. (Ja, oorsee is hulle nog nuut beskikbaar.) :thumleft:

Ek het 'n enjin hier, maar het dieselfde probleem as joune. :(

Gesels met DJ (Dale). Hy Het 'n ongeluk met sy DR 650 SE gehad. :(

Dalk kan jy sy fiets oorkoop. ;)

Gebruik die enjin, en verkoop die res stuk stuk.  :thumleft:

Ek het lank laas met hom gepraat. Hy het destyds nog met die skuldige party se versekering gestoei! >:(

Bly weg van die ander enjin. Gaan nie pas nie. :(

Spoke to Hedels in Cape Town. We are going the re-build route. Probably 790 Kit route.

Heddles contacted me, and wanted pics of the engine parts I have ie. crank, conrod, piston, barrel and head. :)

I have been a bit busy and have not attended to his request. :o

Does he still require these parts for your rebuild? ???
