i wish but i ride it fantasizing like it is and this is what happened.
I lowered it to 15psi i would have gone down to 12 but i carry lot of tools & stuff and wanted to avoid pinch flat. Some sections have a lots of whoops on it ...
Tested out the Hot Cams today, on the dirt, very nice, really glad i got em, very impressed at the power gains they provided, bike runs great.
The bike just gets to speed so much quicker now, and pulls strongly all the way there, stock gearing 15/44 works very well as a true 50/50 imho, can climb anything, and hit 90+ mph on the way home
The only thing that sucks about this gearing, is when you are going down steep hills and want to use the engine braking, well, its not there since you can do 22 mph in 1st gear, lol
Here's an easy one for the group. I am finishing up my winter science project. Doing research on the effects of road salt and winter driving on a 2001 DRZ 400 by the previous owner.
I am looking for an aftermarket chain slider to begin the reassembly process of the bike.
Remarkably all parts were disassembled with a minimimum of breakage considering pneumatic impacts, 2# hammers, chisels, brass punches, dremels and impact drivers were some of the more common tools used. Along with a two bottles of penetrating oil..
Which exhaust is that?
And is that Edge brakelight with OEM signals?
Bike looks great!
I recently had to replace my swing arm chain rub. I went with An OEM as I know it's going to last and only cost $40. Shipping was free from rocky mountain ATV because I was spending onver $100...The cheapest after market I found else were was $36 shipped.
I have a TM designworks slider on mine. I wish they made the actual swingarm slider peice too. The quality is good!
Exhaust is a MRD/SSW, And yes, Edge tail light, but with these turn signals, got em on front and rear.
Try the Teraflex if you are looking for an aggressive tire!
Not at all smooth on the street. They used to stock a 150/90-18 which is what is on my drz now.
Rube, how long do these last in moderate conditions? Can you describe them a bit more? They look intense!
I have not kept close enough tabs on the milage so I cannot comment on longevity. People who seem to know more than me on the web say that it lasts for a long time.
The tire is very heavy, and from what I read before buying it can be hard to mount. I did not have difficulty mounting it at home with tire irons (no machine). Side walls are very stiff and there are stories about people running them with no air for a while after losing the valve stem due to spinning.
Not a universal tire for sure. I put it on when I was riding a lot of sand in Florida. The Teraflex digs in and throws big roost!
I have used it on the street some and it is not a smooth ride. I did not balance it either tough, so maybe that has a lot to do with it!
This might be a dumb question .
Just bought this on e bay and I don't think that it will come with instructions?
It's a Clarke 13.7 Ltr tank, and I was wondering how the brace is fitted whether it sits in front or behind the rads?
A picture would be helpful if anyone has one.
Apparently, the company was making tires over here, then changed over to Chinese labor and the tires are now lasting about half as long. This is after reading a review thread in Thumpertalk. There was at one time, two different types, type 1 and type 2, which had something to do with longevity.
So, keep us informed at how these are doing, I'm a little hesitant now, the d606 is a sure thing, but these tires just look like they dig in, but I wonder about longevity....
So what kind of tip is needed for that? it seems to be one of those special star fittings, but with a piece of metal in the middle?
Anybody know what its called and what size it is?
I called it a .045x4.5" cutoff wheel.
Not sure how but this seems to work on a variety of different screw heads, truly a wonder tool.
Often you can break that piece out thats in the middle and use a regular star bit.
It's just a security torx bit. but like others, I just cut it off at the welds at the subframe.
It is called a Tamper Proof Torx.
This winter I decided to get my son's DR-Z400E plated for dual-sport use and adventure riding. I recorded my project on my family blog:
Here is the end result:
