Had my 2003 DR for 6 happy months now. Tried the XT600E, The KLR650 and the WeeStrom, but this bike seems to fit me like a glove and will be my dirty love-slave. Had to do the new base gasket at 3000 miles, but it is now leak-free. Have Progressive upgrade springs, grip heater kit, and the Jesse idle screw to add to it - but that's happening before Buena Vista.

So- recently I put on some new MT21's and took it into some loose stuff. I've noticed that I need to gear down (like everybody has said) in order to climb without lugging the motor too much. If I change to the 14-tooth primary sproket, can I just reset the chain tension adjuster, or do I need to pull a link from the drive chain? Anyone? This thread is great, by the way...big ups to everyone for keeping it going!
