Suzuki DR650 Mods & Stuff
Photo was taken on the way back from picking it up and I was bloody excited!

G'day guys,
after a lot of people asking the same questions about where did I buy this and how much did I pay for that... I decided to create this page to help people and also to make my life a little easier!

2009 Suzuki DR650 SE
I bought it second hand for $5,350.00 AUD
and found it via www.bikesales.com.au
It had 1,600kms (994 miles) on the clock which meant it was practicly run in for me!

I paid $150.00 AUD for the roadworthy

My idea was to spare no expense on doing up the stock DR650 and creating a Dual Sport Bike that would go anywhere and take on anything that I could throw at it. In addition I wanted to do most of it myself and learn as I went, while videoing and sharing my experience... good and bad with anybody that was interested.

Back in 2013 ready for the Simpson Desert

To Keep things real... the bike was not totally stock from the factory. It had been lowered front and rear and had some unbranded aftermarket exhuast on it, along with a 14 tooth front sproket. The original stock exhaust & 15 tooth front sproket was included in the deal. Oh and 2 road tyres which will never be used :-)

REMEMBER... This is what I did to my DR650, it's not the right way or the best way of modifying your DR650.

I have done a lot of videos and I know it can be tricky trying to find the one with the particular modification/upgrades in it. So this page will have links to the relevant videos.

I will also link to website's that I have bought the particular upgrade parts from. I did get some stuff through sponsorship, but I have listed everything at the retail price at the time.

LIST OF SUZUKI DR650 MODIFICATIONS and UPGRADES in no particular order.
Project Period: May 2013 to August 2017 and still ongoing!
