Good evening all guys!
I'm Davide from nearby Turin in Italy.
I' m glad to join this community, that seem very well organised and full of enthusiasm!! :drinks: :drinks:
I do prefer old skool emoticons, instead of the crappy politically correct patatalk inexpressive smiles...
:tease:
Anyway, I'm 26, and every thing I drive is older than me, by choiche.
So I own a glorious dr 600 from '88, about 60k km. (I really hope that you prefer SI ranther than imperial units...) but now the beast is a bit tired, need new clutch discs, maybe timing chain, and if I manage to, a sp 41 95 mm bore new piston just to rise a bit the compression rate :diablo:

Pics coming soon, I'm from mobile now and I have to pratice with the new to me forum consolle!

Welcome to the forum Pakkio! I normally offer new members DR650 manuals, but unfortunately I have nothing for the 1988 DR600. :sad:
Perhaps you already have a service manual, or it could be found online. :RTFM

Thanks all!!
And thanks for the manual.
If someone want, I can share my 600 manal, for the old timers lovers :biggrin:
Anyway, I'm a bit sad.
I have to rebuild my engine as standard :cry:
no 670: post225096.html#p225096

Or does someone knows some more about sp 46 barrel and piston on older blocks? :s_thinking

Welcome Davide! I just joined here, too. I like your attitude about old vehicles! It gets harder as you get older -- I'm 47, and I've got a Vespa and an old Winnebago RV that are a couple years younger than me, from the early '70s. There's just something about keeping nice machines going.

Good luck with the engine rebuild! If any bunch of folks can help you, I bet they're here.
