DR650 96′ to current
This DIY upgrade kit sets the bike up for your rider weight and adds for 2021 the all new Platinum fork valves to the front forks, stopping the bike from diving under brakes and bottoming on landing.
NOTE – the kits have now been upgraded to include the all new best DR650 fork valve on the market today. The Platinum fork valves alone are approx $60 more than the previous fork valves, again the new fork valve is a cut above previous offerings and is the best money can buy !
Kits are available in several sizes and are purchased as a kit from our supplier. Below is a guide supplied by Teknik but people should do there own research. I consider these on the light size, if in doubt go up a size. Some people carry a lot of gear others carry little, some ride hard tracks at speed some are back road tourers and like a plusher ride, email if unsure or need a guide. Our techs in the day of our Suzuki Dealership set up a ton of DR’s in full adv spec mode, I ran basic adventure schools and customer overnight rides every month, NO DR650 went out the door without suspension being done !
Note – There is further information to read under the individual fork springs and rear shock springs within this the suspension category and worth a read.
DR’s are famously easy to work on, but all the instructions are included in case you’re unsure.
Note – there are now new additional sizing –
|Rider Weight [kg]||Fork Spring Rate [kg/mm]||Shock Spring Rate [kg/mm]|
115 – 125 = 0.58 / 8.5
125 – 140 = 0.60 / 9.0
