All looking good so far. The YSS rear shock is a thing of beauty. Looks very well made and a great price. The one removed was an old Hagon (fully knackered). I may have a little work to do on the shock linkage Big Grin
May have them cleaned up and fitted this weekend.

Ah wow, so nice to see everything so fresh and clean :clap:
Tis looking great. Have you plans for painting the plastics?
Did you pull the vin plate off the frame?
More pics as ye go Rob Wink


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 16-10-2019

Hi H
There wasn't a vin plate fitted, but a frame number stamped (matches my registration document). And it's still readable though the powder coating.
Plastics and tank are in good condition, so just a set of new pattern decals, the same as fitted. They are surface mount, not lacquered over.
Got family over this weekend so I'll put some time in on the bike Big Grin

P.S, just taken a delivery of lots of Stainles steel nuts, bolts and washers..........lovely Thumbup

Fast turnaround on the coating then Thumbup My powder coater is good but slow.


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 16-10-2019

Dropped off Monday morning last week, called me to collect Friday morning. Spot on really.

I've got a load of parts need cleaning now and a fair bit of painting.


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 26-10-2019

A little more work done, but slow progress due to working away. And I'm away all next week :tdown: .

Just got one bolt to get lined up so I can pick up the thread to tighten up. Clearly visible in the pics.

Look at this lot. If it was all genuine parts it would have cost a fortune. Thankfully, All Balls do the kit for my bike, whoop whoop !

If only I could work as efficiently as Mr HLime


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - H_Lime - 27-10-2019

Gotta meet this other Lime fella whos efficient lol Big Grin
That looks super and you have gone the whole hog with the linkage bearings, nice one. I'm on the fence there about mine as they feel ok but will have a proper sconce.
Willya paint the engine and fairings? Whats next?


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - nug - 27-10-2019

Re: Here is my old DR650RS - H_Lime - 27-10-2019
