Small victory tonight. I found the source of the suspension noise on the DRZ. The rear shock was fully loosened. It's amazing it didn't come apart on the road. Installed a new race tech spring while...

I like the design, but I don't think I can run it on my DR. I switched to Protaper EVO CR Bend bars, which are 1 1/8" diameter at the mounts. It looks like this is only for 7/8" bars.

The dirt "road" isn't that long, maybe 1/4 mile. I'm hoping I can find something north on 16 where I can practice. Time to hit up google earth and do some scouting.
