Brought this home a few weeks ago.So much fun and easy to ride.I just know I'm gonna get in trouble.Hoping my friend Oddball will invite me along to the cool kids rides.Needs new tires.Didn't much care for the shitty Bridgestone Trail Wings.

put some Hiendau (sp?) K60's scouts on my 990A and they are far better than the Pirelli scorpions I was running before Smile

Very cool  Thumbsup  I had a blast on my DR while it was around.  I like the MichelinT63s on the DR (especially for the $).

For tires, avoid Kenda K270s and maybe consider a set of TKCs.  Don't ask me how I know...  

Nice bike!

My checkbook hates me.Farkling continues.So far I've added.

Pat Walsh skid plate and rear rack.
Powermadd bar risers.
Engine case guards.
Sprocket guard.
Exhaust guard.
Rear brake cylinder guard.
Wolfman tank bag.
Mirror extenders.
Upper chain roller.

Haven't decided what to do with the torture rack seat.Nor tires,but I'll put those two off till next spring.This bike sure is fun too.

+1 on seat concepts.

I stopped by their shop and had one installed on my WRr.  Great seat for a nice price from some good guys.  They were working on making their own seat pans for the DR an DRZ when I was there.

Great bike! Today, iI took a ride on mine and came back very content, as usual. I think you will need to decide if you want more dirt or street before you buy tires. Mine has DOT approved Knobies. A concept I don't understand, but they work for me. Smile

I liked the Pirelli knobs... rallycross I think.

IMO, just skip the seat concepts idea and spend the extra for the Sargent. The seat concepts was the biggest mistake I made in my build... it was better than stock, but nowhere near as good for me as the Sargent. The second biggest mistake was hard pans... took almost busting my leg on a BDR ride (SG10's are the only reason I didn't) to convince me it wasn't a great idea - two words, Wolfman Colorado :-)

Here's what I did with mine, have since been inducted into the Les Ismore society and transitioned to a KLX250S.
