First off welcome to Quadcrazy. That’s a lot of money for what you need done.   If your mechanically inclined you can work on the bike yourself and save a ton.  It’s also an old bike so I’m sure you paid very little for it so you don’t want to put too much into it.  YouTube has tons of videos to help you along as well as the members her at Quadcrazy.   Parts are available from eBay or aftermarket.  

But again this all depends on how much you can do yourself.

I agree with @Frank Angerano , that's too expensive for a brake job and switch. You can probably do it yourself. Check out some of the videos on youtube as mentioned.

Listen, I’m not sure what your situation is but I can tell you this. You have to make the time if this is something you like to do! 

I have enjoyed doing this work/play most of my life. I got married, had kids and all of that was put on the back burner for a long time. As soon as things settled down I had to make the time to do what I am doing now.

Plain and simple this is what I like to do and it keeps me sane.  Not saying it’s for everyone  but you have a good old bike that you can get parts for and you can get the bike back to good. Question is do you want to have a project bike ? 

Its very rewarding bringing some back to life. 

Quadcrazy has a huge member base to help you along the way!

Make a list, prioritize it and bang it out if this is something for you. 

No matter which way you go good luck!

I do enjoy it. But I'm working 7/12's right now and there is no time to be had. That's one of the reasons I wanted to go with a mechanic. I've looked on Amazon and Ebay for parts I need and I just don't see them. The mechanic told me they don't even make new parts for most of my bike. Is that even true? Can you tell me where to find new parts? And the reason I joined here was to be able to talk to ppl like you. So yes... I want to get this thing going. I'd at least like to get all the parts ordered that way when I get laid off I can do it.

7/12’s is money ! Make it while you can! 

I’ve taken a look and there are parts out there.  Even on eBay, depending on the parts you need.  

Make a list and post it on the forum and I’m sure myself and a few other members will know where to look and point you in the right direction and help out.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.
