There may be copy write issues with that. So you may find 'us' less helpful with that.

I would suggest using google to see if you can find one that way.

For vast amounts of chatter on the DR650 you can try
the DR650 thread - ADVrider
yhoo groups hove one on the DR650 ..

On a new to me bike the first things I'd do are

change the oil and filter (filter is on the right - three screws on the cover)
Clean the air filter - under left side cover - then another cover and you have it.

You want more?
Check the brake pads for ware.
Replace the brake fluid.
Adjust the valves.

Thanks Warin..
Been looking alot for a 'free' manual but think its best that i buy one since im going to be using it alot. Don't wanna go to the bike shop and ask them what filters and oils are needed, had a look at procycle filters but wont be so easy getting them as im living in South Africa (zulu land)... Wanting to do my first trip up thru mozambique to Bazaruto Islands from Richards Bay over Dec and Jan so would like to prepare the DR650 so it can handle the rough terrain
Cheers

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
