Oh yea and for the guys that are verbally battling over maintence schedule. The difference between a 16,000 mile valve adjustment/check and a 25,000 miles adjustment/check is a matter of an hour or so. You could argue the DRZ has a longer oil life expectancy that the Yami because it holds twice as much oil. These guys on here are talking about a DRZ like we're dealing with a Ducati. 16000 miles for valve check is impressive and very good. 25,000 miles on a yami is unheard of and is phenomenal. The difference, Suzuki has proved itself time and time again. Hopefully Yami can back up it's reliability with it's awesome valve schedule. Many people have opened their DRZ's up to find that their valves have still been in spec well after 16,000 miles.

Lurking here, kind of like all 3 bikes, but living at altitude really makes me like the EFI. Wierd question, is the WR250R's speedo driven off the front wheel like most dirtbikes, or does changing the gearing mess up the speedo readings? It looks like from pictures I've seen there is no front speedo cable.

The speed signal is taken from the transmission so yes it will be in error if you change the gearing.

SpeedoHealer for fixing that problem.

The 12 o'clock labs unit is top notch and has my speedo dead nuts accurate. It was off horribly bone stock to begin with. Gearing changes just made it go from horrible to ridiculous. My 12 o'clock healer fixed it all

I just look at the speed indication on my GPS...I've given up on speedometers altogether.

I don't use my gps when I'm commuting to work every day. Having the speedo off as far as it is and riding the bike for daily transportation just sucks. I can't think of a better way to spend $80.

You could just cheap out and put pieces of tape on the glass for ceratin speeds previously determined by GPS.

Unless GPS is left on the bike at all times - it will do nothing for the odometer.

Having the real distance a bike has traveled is important to me - a little anal I guess.

That doesn't really work for a digital speedo

My DRZ speedo was off 8 to 10 percent any way - most of the Japanese dual sports seem to be - my wife's Super Sherpa is.

For some reason the Euro bikes have accurate speedos - at least the ones I have ridden.
