Cool! Can't wait for the action shots. It looks so beautiful there, I'm disappointed I didn't get either job I interviewed for in the spring and summer that would have had me living out that way. Boo for me I guess.

That said, I'm all packed up to hit my first endurance race on Saturday. Wish me luck. I'll try to keep track of how many times I get lapped. Also praying to not feel the sharp bits of a big fat track hoarding quad. Those dam things are a nuisance wherever they go!

Can one of the experts let me know what jetting adjustment I need to do for my stock DRZ for the temps we're currently having in Central Ontario? Thanks in advance.

I am hoping to! I'm gonna order some ice screws and a front tire tomorrow (still have a brand new Trackmaster rear in stock) and make them up myself. I know I need to richen up my jetting, but not sure what I need.

I now live less than a mile from Lake Simcoe and there's now lots of ice out there, so why not?

I already have a jetting kit installed, but I lifted my needle one notch, made a huge difference in this cold.

I'll probably give that a go first since it's easiest. We used to lower the needles on the sleds when the temps warmed up to make them run leaner.

Drcool is the reason I am getting the ice going up my way, I wanted to get out last year but missed it. I promised myself I would get it done this year. I'm not regretting one minute of it.
