    Yeah, have been in to Veitch's this week. A new 650 is cheaper which I don't get.

    DR 650... Old school and bland, with crap suspension, but an adequate commuter, easy trail bike. And you can throw lots of $$ at it to make it slightly better.
    DRZ400... more fun out of the box, get the e model with better carb. Better suspension, and you can gear it up for the commute.
    They're both pretty bullet proof though

    Dr650 Frame

    I've looked everywhere I can think of for a roadworthy DR650 frame. I'm really surprised that they are not readily available because it is an incredibly popular bike in NZ (and elsewhere). Or I have been looking under the wrong street light. So, I'm looking for advise about who is likely to have a DR650 frame available.

    Contact one of the local gang or "club" establishments. They're bound to have a few laying about.

    Just saying...

    Thanks for the heads up. I had already checked with that seller and the frame is damaged unfortunately (squashed at the bottom). So, I'm still looking.

    It is bent beyond redemption due to a prang.
