Used 650's are pretty cheap, why bother with any major servicing at all? Not like its a special bike.

16yo Dr650 engine dun blown up.

My vote would be don't dump any more money into this one. Save as spares bike.

Buy another used 2009 or newer Dr650 in stock engine configuration and maybe a slip-on exhaust.

As you probably already know most +400cc single cylinder bikes seem to sip oil, some more than others. And most dun blown singles engines stem from low-no oil. Check oil ever 500 miles until you get feel for oil consumption rates.
