    Maybe Wisconsin is different, but Michigan allows 24 hours straight home after signing over the title. No need for registration or license plate. Still need insurance though.

    I meant the bike couldn't be rode to meet ferry. And he didn't offer to haul it to ferry either.. So you'd have to get to bike from ferry.

    I'll find out tomorrow if I have a DRZ.

    I would rather do used but not finding anything. The outfit is cycle house and they have a menu that shows speedo compatible. I will have to ebay and chop a kickstand.
    Tried to bump start and as expected, nothing with the rekluse. Kickstart kit on the way. I do a lot of desert stuff and walking out from equipt. failure is no bueno.

    Quick question. I have a Shinko 244 5.10-18. while it's a 5.10 it doesn't seem wider than my Shinko 241 4.10-28.
    Anyone tired it on their DRZ rear?

    Any recommendations on seat cover repair goop? Smallish tears (2inches).

    You don't even need to guess. Shinko says it's a supported fit.

    I have 130/90's & 130/80's/5.10 (Shinko 700 and Michelin T63) on both my DRZ rear "S" rims , 1 is a stock width the other a little wider so the tire fits better as it's designed . The 5.10 technically a little wide for the stock rim but fits fine , they won't have the exact tread profile that it would if the rim was 2.5 or even 3.00 wide.

    Anyone tried a Technology elevated smart carb on a DRZ yet? For my rtw bike it sure sounds like a good bet but we all know how advertising makes things sound.

    Thank you.
    That chart isn't what came up when I searched.
    I will be picking up the new to me DRZ this week.
    Already checking into possible sensible, mods.

    The DRZ hasn't been around long enough. They get tripped up every time it gets new graphics.
    Wait until it's 20 years with no changes, then they will tell you, "we don't have parts for bikes over 10 years old" and you'll have to lie about the year on your bike.
    Or do like most and just buy online at night and have the parts waiting for you when you get home from work.

    It is a temperature and elevation compensating carb. Really simple set up and system. Reviews seem to be mostly from racers but it sounds like a winner, especially when the are sub $400 new and seem to offer hassle free elevation and temperature changes as well as a slight bump in performance and efficiency. If the claims are correct it means a whole lot less dicking around and a lower cost than the fcr

    suvslayer, on our off road bikes I sew the seat cover tear with fishing line, then just put clear silicone over the stitch. Works great for us.

    I've read that the DRZ does fine with elevation changes. I've ridden up to 7000' and it hasn't been an issue.

    I've also read others in this thread have had the stock carb up to 12 or maybe 13k' and it's been OK.

    If you MUST have a different carb, I've read the Lectron Carb is the next best thing to fuel injection.

    Does the lectron have the responsiveness of the fcr?
