    I change my own tires on my SM. I have no problem changing offroad tires on my offroad rims with simple tire irons and a milk crate but the street rims/tires are a different matter. Street tires are made to seal at the rim without a tube. Brutal without a machine but can be done.

    If you had anything go through the tire you will need to put a patch in there. You probably pulled the nail and didn't think there was much of a hole but when you pressure up the tire it will stretch and cause a "wear" point that will abraid the tube until it leaks. Probably why you went 2 weeks before it wore a hole in the tube. It might be hard to find the original hole in the tire when deflated so carefully remove the tube keeping its orientation and the hole should match the same place on the tire. Put a glue in patch on the inside of the tire when you find it.

    Anyone running a 38 rear sprocket? I have a short 150/60/17 rear tire on my SM setup on my 400E. I am running 15/44 and I can't go 70mph to keep up with traffic unless I'm pinned.

    Thanks

    You're posting on the ADV Rider forum brother, being able to change a tire on the trail with trail tools is a required skill for adventure riding.

    With you on that one. Can change tires on both rims in under 30mins on a good day.

    On a bad day, well I leave it for the next good day :freaky

    My 2000 S plastics need a bit of a refresh. Any idea how well Plastidip would hold up on dirt ? (not woods or single track riding)

    I could go the new plastic route, which I want to, but thinking plastidip could work out well.

    Hi Guys

    Just thought I'd post up some pics of my new DR-Z 400E. When I got it the other day it had 760KM on it. I just did the first oil change today. I was so eager to get back out for a ride after doing the oil change that I forgot to put the force bash plate on before taking these pics.

    I'm going to put a after market muffler on it and have decided on the a Yoshi RS-3, that will come a few weeks from now.

    Any how, here's the pics :D

    Nice tank bag Mark, and the safari 17ltr's are perfect for the DRZ's

    I am changing front and rear wheel bearing. Any idea what to get if I want upgraded bearings? Or just to stay OEM bearings? Any advise or links will be appreciated!!!

    I order from vxb bearings in Cali. You can get 3 full set for around $30. When you get then just repack them.

    Most times a spec bearing is just that a specification. You can go spend $10 a bearing and they come out of the same bin as the 5 for $10.

    Vxb is easy to order online from ship fast and have good bearings. Every set on the DRZ has outlived OEM

    I just replaced the chain on my DRZ 400 tonight. I bought this bike in December and have ridden it next to none. Chain was rigid and bad. Bought a new one from an inmate here. It seems like it does not want to roll off the sprocket teeth easily. Like the teeth are too long. That makes no sense I know. The old one said
    TYC 520H
    the new one is a D I D 520 VT2. I haven't had a bike with a chain drive in ages. Do I need to replace the sprocket too? I really need some help form you drz chain maintenance pros. Please. Thanks in advance. The sprocket is in very good shape I think.

    You should always replace the chain and sprockets as a set. A worn sprocket will wear out a new chain.
