    Didn't even see that scooterhoon, I've seen a couple of your vids when I was researching this bike. Good vids you got there.

    Mountain enduro, he's is just telling me what was on the bill of sale from the shop here were we live. He nor I have actually looked into it any further than that. Guess now I will have to actually look more into it. Thanks for telling me regardless, this could help me out in the future.

    Also we went riding on some serious hill climbs this past weekend, one thing I noticed was the throttle seemed way longer than any other bike I've owned. Is there a way to shorten it? Thanks guys

    Hey, does anyone know if a rear shock/ spring from a 2010 DR650 will fit a 2004 DRZ250? Just putting it out there before I tinker myself... :ear

    a dr650 spring will only work with a 2" spacer reducer

    racetech sells a spring

    the dr250/350 spring and shock will work too

    That's good to know. Any particular ones you recommend? Also do we have a push/pull throttle?

    Ok pull out the carb,unscrew the bowl, dry the inner carb at the jets all that top area,put again the bowl without screws,hold the bowl with your hand ( best if someone can help) and hold the carb in a straight position beside the tank near the fuel petcock(put it in "On" position) then close the fuel and take off the bowl carefully, the fuel level will leave a wet mark at the jets ,that wet mark has to cover all jets at least 1 cm.

    At the screw I just did the 3 turns out with the carb off.
    Hope it can help.

    I recently bought a brand new TM33 from www.carbparts.com for $319. You tell them what you've done to the DRZ250 and they pre-jet it for you, and include two sets of spare jets too. It's a nice carb...
    Install is straight forward, all you need is the boot (connecting b/w the back of the carb and the airbox) from the pumper carb model.
    And a slight tweak to the throttle cable bracket to prevent it from increasing the rpms at full right lock.

    That's a really clean looking Djebel, we need to get you out into the mountains/trails around here to get that thing respectably dirty :wink:

    Can you order that boot OEM? Or do I need to be looking for a parts bike somewhere?

    That looks like a good time.

    What kind of pannier racks do you have on the rear? Does the off-the-shelf rack for another model fit on the DR250?

    I need a new front tire. Kenda K270's are on both front and rear right now. I was thinking of just putting another K270 on, or possibly a Shinko 700 Series. Maybe a TKC80, but that is more expensive.

    You guys from the Kanto area know where is a good spot to pick up a tire? I'd like to get tire changing tools as well, so that I can do it myself. The auto hobby shop on base has compressed air and room to work.

    I found stuff on Amazon.co.jp, but didnt know if there was a store I could walk into that was better.

    I am a noob, so I dont even know if I need tubes or not.

    Have them on mine as well. This Ukraine company makes them, about $215 plus reasonable shipping. You have to email the guy, his response was spotty but he did come through. Btw, that's my bike on his page.

    There is a great shop in Tokyo called Speedstar with very good prices for Japan, was just there on Sunday. James and I are both running Michelin T63s.
    http://speedstar.jp/tire/michelin/offroad/trail.html. They can check your tubes and let you know if they think they should be replaced. I'm running heavy duty ones to make them more puncture resistant.
