I was thinking of trying Mitas CO2, but I haven't got round to it yet. Currently I'm just riding the DR like a speedway bike....

Lekka...It's expensive, but it seems it's a TOUGH tyre: Mitas E09, actually a tubeless with strong side walls and rubber compound is stronger than normal or something.

Enjoy u'r 50th VM!! when is it?

I'm still keen for a trip some time, a proper one
Who's keen? Maybe Botswana, cross over to Namib and back or something.

Go look on trade/smalls - there are some tyres for sale there at good prices. A Mitas E09 130/90/17 going for R880. They go For R1100 in some places.

WC, what's happening bud? Post some pics of the engine - what exactly happened to it?

BTW, must say that I'm happy with how my DR is now pulling. Freeze did a good job with dyno. You won't believe but I've got rather small main jet on the carb, think it's 144 (dyno kit sizes). We started with 155, the kit had main jets up to 170! With the tapered needle, it seems there is alot of petrol coming through just in changing the needle. Consider that as you try and get the fuel/air right with yours.

Had to free flow the silencer to get the probe in their for the dyno. that was interesting...used a welding rod to burn holes in the plate. Had to weld two welding rods together to get in deep enough! DR very loud now, but I ride with ear plugs

Going to try a Pirelli rally cross rear. Has a similar tread to a D606, seems a bit lighter though? I'll fit at the weekend.

Guys, was doing a cleanup on my laptop, all things DR.
Came across a service manual for the DR650 R/S

Ive attached the first page and the size of the zipped files.
Just in case someone was looking for them.
