DRZ E Thermostat

Annie & Numbers

I lurked on this thread and developed the opinion the DRZ would be the perfect upgrade for me. Also thanks to Thumper Talk, but their pop-ups drive me crazy.

I bought a plated 06 DRZ400E about a...

5K limited throttle response

Related to the problem with the 5K limited throttle. I had a similar issue with a carb on a car. It turned out to be a very small flake of brass which jammed in the primary jet. It acted like a...

New Mexico North West

Another suggestion, although I don't live there you should check out the Farmington/Aztec area. Only 1.5 hours to Silverton, 4 hours to Moab. Lots of good riding locally I hear. Really you should...

The rules vary by location

It is sad to hear of the casualty.
I believe my state will allow a bike to be sold to anyone over the age of 18. You then have 30 days to get endorsement and insurance.
