Yeah , serious workshop time, waiting for my tank, still looking for a pipe, and a few bits then its serious re vamp time, will strip carb , doubt the clutch has ever been touched as the bike has about 20k km on her.

Will have clutch done, check out the top end of motor, wanna do shocks (wilburs) carb sorted, single exhaust can, crash bars bash plate etc, new tank, plastics and re-spray, braided hoses, handle bars, vapour comp etc, will be a new bike
 The idea is to make her reliable, crashable and longer fuel range.

Veemax do you have a good site for the workshop manual download? Been trying to source a haines manual but threw my toys with a certain well known bike shop yesterday due to promising to source one and not delivering after a 12 week wait!!!! :xxbah:

I find these yahoo groups VERY Tedious , the interface is crap and dates about 10 years , but join this group and you can access their files, you'll find it there...under files / "Pre 96 DR 650"  , posted Apr 20 2008 , there are THREE .pdf's so be sure the year of your model before downloading , they are 90-91 / 92-94 / 94-95 .

http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/DR650/

There are 4300 odd members so it's quite a good resource, but man , what a clumsy way to communicate !!!!

I think the motors will all be much the same, just e-start may differ?

I'm pointing to the wrong folder, grab the four-part download  under Files > Pre96 DR650 > Pre96 DR650 Service Manual , that's the one manual that's got it all , there are amendments at the back for specific years and markets , thats the goen !

I doubt its an electric start, probably a kicker like mine.

There's nothing that impresses the women like kickstarting a 650 first kick! ( its also kind of kak when everyone stares at you trying to kick your reluctant engine into life though...  :laughing4: (Fortunately that rarely happens!))

There is nothing that impresses a women less than helping you push start a 650 e-start when the battery is flat  :imaposer:
