very cool tire!

i have had no issue with my suzuki cars

change the once or twice a year if i remember to and drive it like a stole it

i worked for gm dealer for a couple years never had anything more than service work on the suzuki geo line
every one i know that has them has nothing but good reports on them.

i would bet the reason they are pulling out of the usa has to government motors

to each his own

back to drz400s

This problem happened with a buddy of mine on a DR650 when the engine completely were drowned with gas mixed with oil. Maybe u need to drain the oil and filter (u can check if ur oil is mixed with gas). Most likely u got ur float stuck in ur carb & need to be maintain. This occurs usualy when the bike is parked for sometime without use/motion.

The second image has very different qualities and looks more like a "very nice" Sunday ride
There's the irony: I was treating it like a trail ride. As I'd never been in Western Australia before, my goals were to have a good look around, and to finish the event... I'd mentioned this to Robin Box (maker of Safari tanks) when I was talking to him one night; his response: "If you go in with that attitude, you're likely to finish top 20." Quite a few riders that pushed hard ended up with a helicopter ride.

I ended up 18th.

i popped the dipstick and couldnt really smell any gas. I knew i would have to change the oil because of the probibilty of gas mixing with the oil, but i didnt know it would affect how the bike ran that much.

I had the same thing with my DR350, the petcock was left on and the float needle stuck open. The gas literally filled up the carb and intake and proceded to siphon past the piston rings filling up the oil res. and then out the exhaust. the oil was extremely thin as the gas had greatly diluted it. best to just swap it out.

Some of you guys may know some buddies that might be thinking of trading their Z for a DR,
The more I read in here, the more I've got to have a DRZ...so let your buddy know I have a clean DR650 to trade...

It seems the Z is more dirt worthy and it has the better suspension, but you all know this...so, on to more interesting topics...

Sweet man! I was just getting ready to order one of these, even though I have a brand new 606 on the shelf. It looks like they are priced the same as a 606 on sale though, about a hundred bucks. I noticed some bigger bikes riding them and getting about 2500-3000 miles on them, and I only ever get about 2500 off of the 606 anyway . Give us a brief report when you get back so I can finalize my order with confidence.

They've been around in Oz-traylia for several years now. Have a look at their web site.... there's some really good information about the compunds and build of their tyres (natural rubber!), plus a 'selection' outline that explains the differences in the MOTOZ tyre range.

U might wanna hold ur order or get different tire (but it's ur desicion afer all). Today i rode 82.5 miles off road on the dial.

This is what happen to Motoz Tractionator after only 82 miles DANG


Chuck of rubber come off easely it's seems this tire is "1 ride tire"...
The last 20 miles i had to work extra hard to keep the shiny side up the rear end was all over the place especially in sand washes...
I have a new Pirelli XCMS on the front, it handled ok, not what i expected though. I am going back to Maxxis desert I/T for the rear and Pirelli Pro-all FIM on the front ASAP.

shite man . I can't believe that. You must have one of those 60 hp DRZ's where the back tire never stops shredding.
