AtlasExp, it's good to see you lofting the new ride over logs and getting some air! Hope to meet and ride with you when you come up to Canuman's Palace of the People.

Lets make a long story short, im doing 65+mph, 2 lane highway speed limit is 65 me thinks, i see a bike on my left coming at me fast, assuming its a harley, it passes me on the left pretty fast, HOLY SHIT, its a VESPA!!! WTF??? i pin it
catch up to him at about 75ish, he pins it too and we are now both doing 80 good times, im waiting for him to go faster, hes stuck at low 80's, i pin it and leave him in the background, got to about 95 and started slowing down.

I wait for him at the stop sign, we chat for a few minutes right then and there, cool dude, its a VESPA 300 GTS SUPER, air cooled with a top speed of 80+ mph, i know he was doing 80+ cause i was right there with him, ive never been so impressed with a vespa before, both looks and performance, and he tells me they make exhaust systems and other performance parts to make it go even harder, that thing has balls and looks the business for sure!!

Skid plate

I found this in the vendor section and it looks really well made....if you are in the market it may be worth a look.

2004 s acct

Is there anything to be gained taking out my ACCT for inspection on my 04 DRZ S? I suspect it is why my engine is getting noisier all the time. Anyone experienced a failure on mid 2000's models?

Did he ever make the tool tube thingy for the DRZ?

I know he has one for the DR650 on his site, but I don't see one for the DRZ yet.

The acct probably hasn't failed, the cam chain is likely stretched.

Yup, thats one on a DR650 and a DR650 one attached to rack thats attached to a DRZ.

But I dont see one that direct bolts on to the DRZ.

princess jamaica, you have one that bolts up direct to the DRZ frame?

Alright, that's a reasonable guess too, so is there a service limit on the cam chain? There's more detail in my post 2 days back.

how do you remove and install a new cam chain? I understand the valve shimming process in theory, so is it a matter of dangling the chain down till its on the bottom gear, then looping it around the cams or do you have to tear down further?

I've never been in there myself, but I think I'll attempt it one of these weekends.... It's just getting too noisy! I'll try and post a vid of the metallic sound I hear....
