.47 eibachs (DR650 fitment) in DRZ250 forks
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=842073
almost the exact same size.

Procycle has them listed here.
http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr650.html#suspension
They are listed just as straight rate in .47, .50 & .55
I'm 175lb and very happy with .47 in my 650 forks.
At 200lbs most go with .50 and big boys use .55

Stock DR650 progressive springs are said to be .40 and good for 150lb or less range.

DOT tire size

New to Dual Sporting and haven't even ridden my new bike yet ( its still in Dallas) but will be plating it for street use here in Denver. Initially I'm going the minimalist route and just adding a horn and DOT tires. Any info/recommendations on the tire size and brands would be helpful. There are no ADVRIDER threads that discuss this so looking for guidance since I've seen both 80/100-21 and 80/90-21 specs for front and 100/100-18 and 100/90-18 for the rear.

Anyone in Rocky Mountain area looking to sell some decent used DOT street legal tires?

there are no dual-sport tire threads on ADV???

as for tagging in Colo, no one really worries about DOT tires from a legality standpoint.
you use one if you want, not because you need to.

I would think the DMV would be a stickler for the DOT rated tire. Maybe I'll take my chances when the time comes. What aftermarket Dual Sport kit is on your ride?

I have some quick questions I hope you can help with:
1. What size/length and type screws are you using?
2. How much less knobie life do you get out of the tires with these in place, before they start to puncture the inner tube?
3. Which brand knobies have you had the best over all usage results with "screwing around"
4. How usable are these on gravel, dirt, snow, and paved roads to get to the off road areas? Or are these strictly for snow/dirt?
5. How long does it take to stud a rear tire and do you also stud the front tire?

Here we go upside down straight from the K6 DRZ250 manual, tried 6x to get the bl**dy thing the right way up
My bike is purely off road and I change the semi synthetic engine oil every 20 engine hours along with oil filter, thinking of pulling it back a bit to 15 hours at the mo.
