A few weeks back, MXrob, of  DRRiders.com , inquired about making a new mount for the MD5 DR650 dash that would accept an Acewell computer…..I thought, WTH is an Acewell computer? I’d never heard of such a thing. So, I did a little research and as it turns out, the Acewell is a very feature packed, high quality unit that’s comparably priced to the Trail Tech Vapor (which we still love btw). So after receiving a sample of an Acewell 3100 from Rob, I handed everything over to the mad engineers in the DRZRider lab so they could get to work.

I have to say, I’m quite proud of their efforts. Now with three options available-  Stock Speedo, Trail Tech Vapor, and the new Acewell mount, the MD5 is THE most versatile dash ever made for the DR650 !!

Rob put together a great write up of the install, so head on over to DRRriders.com and feel free to poke around there for a bit. They have a great community of riders and a very active forum.
