You ARE the man Scott. Please add the gearing calculator as alot of folks ask for that from time to time. And it answers their tire size questions at the same time. How about OMR's stock carb mod instructions?
There's a few others, I'll research and then PM you. Good info so far.

Awesome job compiling that list. Sad that allot of the information seems to disappear. I think this would be a good time to post this link. The BMW F650 Technical FAQs
I think it's the same site that has all kinds of Faqs on the Rotax motor used in the DS. I recall using them quite a bit back in the early days when no one seemed to know what a DS even was.
It was interesting years ago to find a Faq for leaking water pump seals. That problem had been around a long time. Is it cured now?

that brings to mind another mod I used to advocate and post pics of - tapping threading and intalling a tiny 4mm hose barb in the wheep hole under the water pump and putting a few inches of poly tubing zip tied in a loop to keep debris out of the gap between the water and oil seals. the one time I lost my water pump seals and shaft, it was due to a load of grit that got up in there, bike was about a year and half old, 8 years since and still running the same parts i put in that one time. gncc style riding through creeks ya know.
