Green DRZ update

Bill checked the valves, no clearance on both intake valves!
Hope a valve adjustment fixes it.
Will send the radiator off tomorrow to have leak repaired.

Can't make it tonight...wife is working late so I have to go home and take care of the pups. Hopefully, in the next few weeks I'll have a new ride for the trails

Maybe a mile or two of pavement.

motoxer667, would this trip require camping equipment?

Looking at a very reasonably priced late model 690 Enduro if the guy will ever get back to me. Otherwise, I found a very low mile, unmolested DRZ that I'll farkle the hell out of I can put a big tank on that guy and not have to siphon your gas anymore

Thanks for the heads up...I'll wait until (and if) I get the bike before I start buying parts. They come up pretty often though. I really think the 690 would be a better fit for me but I'm not shelling out $10k for a new one when I don't ride all that much.

Bad news came today, turns out that an exhaust valve guide came loose and it needs 2 intake valves. So much for the 6 days of MI this year. Any suggestions on a place to have the head fixed? Talked to LA Sleeve $365 / $515 + shipping 2 week turnaround.

Joe, call CobraT
He has mentioned selling his 690 a couple of times. Catch him in a good mood and he sells his best bikes.
