The net says that in a small number of DR650 transmissions, the gear that drives 3rd, 4th, 5th can and will grenade without warning, usually around 20K miles, and will take the piston, sleeve, crank, conrod etc with it. Mine was in that number apparently, though I only got 11K miles. It was fun while it lasted.
My truck is for sale or trade for a running bike as of right now. I want a UJM, but it can't cost more than I get for the truck, and it has to be mechanically decent and rideable. I need to wait til I have a garage to finish the duc, and I want something winterable. I'm thinking $1000 value for the truck? This should be the perfect time of year to do this.
This movie has been out for a while apparently but it takes time for pop culture news to creep back here by the railyard and the hotdog factory. Anyway it reminded me of all the important stuff. Look at them, they're smiling and riding motorcycles and having fun. There you go.
