That's really a bummer Putzy, sorry to hear it. Is it your dominant arm?

Zdiver1: you're right, this isn't quite what I had in mind. And putting in some fuel stabilizer is a good idea. I'd be completely satisfied with 54 mpg with a TM-40. Is the jetting 'as is' from PC?

Talking Er70s-2

I have found the acerbis tank sits lower on the frame bottom wings are much wider more fuel in lower area it is more bottom heavy then top!
It is more balanced then the stock tank.
My carb I sent to putzy was a 2011 with under 2,000 mi and had the PC jet kit.

I took it out of the box let it warm up adj the idle a half turn and have not touched it. I told jeff my setup open airbox-FMF powerbomb header- FMF Q-4 and he set it up for me!

He said it was Idling high so I wonder if the chock cable is working, I gave him a deal, I also included the throttle cables and the choke cable I also included a PC inline fuel filter.
With the TM-40 you get shorter throttle cables and a shorter choke.

It is the only 0 mile vehical I have ever bought but after riding my last one so long and hard I knew it was worth every penny. The kicker was the Suzuki Zero intrest for five years deal! I am so excited to have a fresh bike to ride and tinker with for years to come. I think that with all that I have learned from ADV. and this thread in particular that I will be able to get alot more miles out of this one before I am done with it.
I got 1.9% on my 2011 and the bike is the same as the 2012. I think white looks the best! the 2012 my have better NSU screws? welcome and let the upgrades began!

DRZ250 forks on DR650

I know it's been done lots so hopefully someone can help. My google fu has been unsuccessful so far.

I have picked up a set of DRZ250 forks and I'm wondering if anyone has a source for, or has a diagram with all the measurements, for the adapter bracket required to space the caliper out to fit the larger 650 disc.

Anyone?

Well I would agree but I couldnt find anyone to loan me five grand with no intrest for five years so I had to go this route.

I kinda like the Grey/ Silver, but I got a good deal on my new 2011 in black. I think the grey/ silver would be a good basis for a Navy / Air force themed paint sticker job.. I really dont know what to do with the paint on my black one but I know I want to do something with it.

Congrats! I like the white too, have a 2011 since sometime last year. They are great bikes and a great platform (as I'm sure you know since you had a 1999.

ya, i guess you would only have ~$4k to spend, out of the $5k, if you had to pay interest on a loan...

myself, i'd still be screwed, cuz i would still end up w/most all the farkles, except perhaps the engine upgrade... and i'd still need that bank loan.

seriously - enjoy your new ride!

Yep, lengthening it to use the rear nuts already in the frame, would be nice.
