    DR650 rear spring internal diameter?

    Evening gents

    Any DR owners have a factory rear spring sitting round that I could score the internal diameter measures from please.

    I would normally just go to my bike but being one handed at present post the screw op things just a bit more difficult.

    Just need the ID for the top and bottom please.... many thanks.
    Cheers Andi & Ellen

    I have been doing some p r e t t y heavy research ya know and I made observations based on the following ... more about pipes than springs but hey

    PIPE SPECIFICATION

    All pipe is to be made of a long hole surrounded by metal or plastic centered around the hole.

    All pipe is to be hollow throughout the entire length; do not use holes of different length to the pipe.

    The ID (Inside Diameter) of all pipe must not exceed the OD (Outside Diameter). Otherwise, the hole will be on the outside.

    All pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam, or other stuff can be put inside at a later date.

    All pipe is to be of the very best quality, perfectly tubular or pipular.

    All acid-proof pipe is to be made from acid-proof material.

    All pipe should be supplied without rust; this can be more readily applied at the job site. Note: Some vendors are now able to supply pre-rusted pipes. If available in your area, this product is recommended, as it will save a great deal of time at the job site.

    All pipe is to be cleaned free of any covering such as mud, tar, barnacles, or any form of manure before putting up. Otherwise, it will make lumps under the paint.

    All pipe over 500ft (150m) in length should have the words "Long Pipe" clearly painted on each side and end, so that the contractor fitter knows it's a long pipe.

    Pipe over 2 miles (3.2km) in length must also have the words "Long Pipe" painted in the middle, so the contractor will not have to walk the entire length of the pipe to determine whether or not it is a long pipe or a short pipe.

    All pipe over 6ft (1.83m) in diameter must have the words "Large Pipe" painted on it, so the contractor will not mistake it for small pipe.

    All pipe closers are to be open on one end.

    All pipe fittings are to be made of the same stuff as the pipe.

    No fittings are to be put on the pipe unless specified. If you do, straight pipe becomes crooked pipe.

    Fittings come in all sorts of sizes and shapes. Be sure to specify the direction you are going when ordering.

    Fittings come bolted, welded or screwed; always use screwed. They are best.

    Flanges must be used on all pipe. Flanges must have holes for bolts, quite separate from the big hole in the middle.

    If the flanges are to be blank or blind, the big hole in the middle must be filled with stuff.

    When ordering 90 or 30 degree elbows, be sure to specify left-hand or right- hand, otherwise you will end up going the wrong way.

    Be sure to specify to your vendor whether you want level, uphill or downhill pipe. If you use downhill pipes for going uphill, the water will flow the wrong way.

    All couplings should have either right-hand or left-hand threads, but do not mix the threads; otherwise, as the coupling is being screwed on one pipe, it is being unscrewed from the other.

    All pipes shorter than 1/8in (3mm) are very uneconomical in use, requiring many joints. They are generally known as washers.

    Joints in pipes for piping water must be water-tight. Those in pipes for compressed air, however, need only be air-tight.

    Lengths of pipes may be welded or soldered together. This method is not recommended for concrete or earthenware pipes.

    Other commodities are often confused with pipes. These include: conduit, tube, tunnel and drain. Use only genuine pipes.

    Scottish Regiments in the Army use Army pipes in unusual ways. These are not approved of in engineering circles.

    Lastly, anyone considering a new pipe purchase should check with their local vendor as the pipe with black holes are currently on special, additional holes can be purchased as needed.


    Think that bout covers it ... (still not much happening)

    Sigh... We're both sad. Sad sad sad.

    I like pipes. I reckon they're better than flatbar. Got more shape, more charisma.
    Sure a bar could be more usefull than say angle but a pipe - ah that's where the majic starts
