The tank isn't for bike juice.....its for carrying the vodka!!!!! Actually my wife rides little suzy and i'm on the DRZ (clarke 4.2 gal tank). I hate paying for UP gas prices so this should be enough for a solid weekend of riding.

Hello All

Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Alan Kohler. I am from Reading, PA
I just bought a 1994 DR125SE, which as I understand, shares almost everything with the DR200SE, except top-end of engine.
Got it for a good price, but it needs a few things. Just bought a B&H seat cover and a set of Shinko 244 tires (trying 3.00 front and 4.10 rear)
I have been riding for 30 years (since age 12) and have had close to 30 bikes in those 30 years. Everything from scooters, dirt bikes, ATV's, Sportbikes and Harleys.
I also work at Yuasa Batteries in the technical department if anybody needs any advice.
I also just put a new YTX7L-BS battery in my bike.

No, I figured that if I had a specific question, I would just do a search first.
I did that to see if anyone was running a 4.10-18 tire over a 3.50-18 .... and it seems that some people are.
Currently my bike has a huge 110/100-18 motocross tire on it, and it rubs the inside of the muffler, but I figured the Shinko 244's less aggressive tread pattern would probably clear.

I also found a NOS Suzuki rear rack for my bike on ebay. Paid $50, but I figured that was a good find for an obsolete part.

Was it white and has been on there for the past few weeks?

there is a rack for a DR125 on ebay now, for $55 .... and it is pretty beat up.
Of course it could be powdercoated if someone was looking for one.
Either way, I think I got a good deal on the NOS one ....

Well she's off the road for atleast a little while...letting a friend (who does have his m endorsement) ride it around a parking lot last night, and she ended up in the side of a pickup truck



Bent the wheel and forks among other things...friend is going to pay for the damages though which is good.

Ran across this pouch while looking for stuff for one of my other hobbies......

I thought it looked pretty neat and a good way to get stuff in the end of the container.....

Big Gun exhausts anyone?

I'm still looking for a DR200, but can't seem to find one in my price range that's within a reasonable driving distance from me. I'm considering one with a Big Gun Evo R exhaust on it and wonder if anyone has experience with this exhaust. I cannot find a listing with an application for this exhaust on the 200, but I was sent a photo of the bike, and it looks like a clean installation. Any feedback on the Big Gun would be appreciated-loudness, quality, etc. TIA

hey all,
new to the thread have been lurking for a few weeks (took that long to try to read all 324 pages:) ) i bought my dr back in april of 2011 mainly for going back'in forth to work (29miles round trip flat land 55 to 65 mph) and little trips to the store and errands. i'll try to post a pic in the future of my mods. low key that they are, store bought milk crate, they seem to be bigger than real ones. i found an atv windsheild which seems to work. i have changed front sprocket to, i beleive, a 16 tooth and getting 87mpg on good days. it seems winter is not good for mpg's. i have been riding it in the low 20 degrees. so far i'm staying pretty warm other than my hands i need some hand guards and have been researching but does anyone have a recomendation? well i've talked enough

I bought cycera handguards to reduce windblast. They didn't help tbh. I then bought the big foam moose mickey mouse ear guards. Apart from making me look like a right plonker they only slightly help cut the wind blast. Next I will try some tourmaster winter elite gloves or the moose/hippo hands covers.
