My machinist buddy told me the other day that he's seen more injuries caused by a deburr tool than any other tool in a machine shop lol
I managed to make it six years without slipping with one. My old man has scars all over from them throughout his 30+ years. I don't know many that haven't gotten a cut from one.

They tend to break right at the radius in the blade. Leaving a ridiculously sharp edge to slide right across flesh.

Yep, its kinda funny, In my time as a tool and die maker I think the worst injury I got was from a deburr tool.

Snagged an extra set of wheels for the dr650. Plan is to mount a street set on one set and knobbies on the other. I have tried out the dual sport tires, and while they are a good compromise, I feel like im either riding offroad pretty hard or on the street. With this setup, though ill have to switch back and forth, ill be able to be all in with whatever style of riding im doing, and also have a different gearset for each wheelset as well.

Nice!  Thought you were going to use Katana wheels?

I was, but these came up and I'm being lazy for now lol Speedo drive works on these, since they will (almost) bolt in, and the kickstand is the right height so it won't have to be switched out with the wheel swap like the dual 17,s would. I'll still likely use the katana wheels for a supermoto setup eventually though
