Acerbis @ rocky mtn only has RM sets
I am sure I will get answer here! What is widest tires that can be installed on DRZ! May be link to some existing treads? Thanks DRZers!
Got a quick oil question, i know i know, just want to make sure is all, please dont shoot.
ive always used the super expensive full synthetic oils such as, royal purple, redline, motul, lucas and mobil one, with this bike needing 2 quarts, thats gonna be $20+ bucks in just the oil every change, my walmart has the non synthetic valvoline oil 20w-50 or 10w-40 (motorcycle specific, wet clutch approved, air or liquid cooled oil)" for only $3.99 a quart, im thinking that oil should be fine in there for a 1000 miles, seems ok?
anyone here ever use that one?
I run Rotella t6 synthetic. Available at Walmart. Not too much more money. But seriously, at 2 qts per change, is the couple bucks a big deal?
if you mean front, perhaps Cheng shin C183S 3.25/3.50_21
I'm considering one of these after a friend was very pleased with its performance in sand on his DR650
Bel-Ray Thumper is well worth the to $20 oil change. I mean it last for 3000 mile oils and being confident knowing the motor is protected is worth a few extra bucks........................
They sell blue plastic for the DRZ, except the headlight shroud, no idea where you would get that.
I used that Valvoline in my Kawasaki 500 ninja. I really liked it. Seemed to wheelie better, I think it worked well with the clutch and transmission, of course this was before synthetic was a reasonable price. I know use use Mobil One synthetic. I wonder if it would be better to just go back to the valvoline and change oil more often.
Will you be posting pictures anyplace
Glad you still use film but I switched to digital years ago and have the best of both world now with an adapter so all my original film lens work in manual mode.
You other inmates use your DR's for getting a camera into normally inaccessible places ?
Or any other fun thing you can carry on the bike to enhance the trip, yes including SWSBO
Well its a $3.99 a quart vs $11.99+ a quart, so 8 dollar oil change vs a 25 dollar oil change, but yeah i see your point for sure.
I hear lots of good things about Bel-Ray, just have never seen it anywhere around here, but even when i used full synthetics i would never go longer then 1500 miles max.
Right, cheap oil and change it often, or expenisve stuff and keep it in there longer, that is the question
Im pretty sure for the next oil change ill spend the $25 bucks on the good stuff tho, cause i do love my bike, and if you actually think about, thats all they really need, good clean oil, a clean air filter and some gas, and
Right now running the 10w-40 Lucas semi synthetic oil i got at oriely's auto parts for 7 bucks a quart (motorcycle specific tho), great stuff, really like it.
Well the project 900 dollar drz was sold before I called the guy....so I went to the dealer and bought a new black 2012 drz400s...... I'll pick it up tomorrow :) already have a jet kit en route...gonna see if I can get the dealer to knock a good chunk off a full system...most likely the yoshi. Excited to own another drz...yippppppeeeeeeeee
