CD-computer dummy

Okay, finally figured it out,opened the pm.As the title to this message
states computer dummy.It's a wonder I can ride a motorcycle..

To reward myself I will be looking to purchase some new tires.As the
Dunlop 605 suck off-road.I haven't tried this combo fr Pirelli MT21 and
r D606. I have used them as sets on the KLX 650 but not as a combo.
As some opinions stated the fr MT21 better on/ok off...the D606 ok on
better off. Compromises...depends on sale price /availability for me. Let's
hear your experiences/opinions...David

Rear one Maxxis Desert IT (120/100-18) my front is Pirelli Scorpion pro-all (90/90-21) they last longer then my previous choices, and handle well on all terrains especially rocks, ruts, loose gravel and sand washes.
U can check out some tires and choices over here: http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ront-Tire.aspx

Help with purchase

Hey everyone. I'm looking at buying a used drz 400s. The guy says it has a bad carb because it doesn't idle. It'll stay running at mid - high rpms.

What does a new carb cost and what would you get? Or do? I've read about the JD kit but not sure what that would do to the mpg.

It seems to be a good deal otherwise.

My DRZ in Marocco. Love the easyness of the bike. Upgraded power a little (fcr, 3x3 mod, exhaust) and upgraded mileage, seat comfort, luggage and springrate.






love the bike

Do you mean the slip on 224? It is repaired and repaved, 224 is nice riding. The FS4610 has been smoothed since I was last on it, probably for the logging trucks. Last time it was nothing but big, deep holes which is fun in it's own way.

Start by cleaning out the pilot jet....that will likely make it idle again.

+1

If it runs better with the choke on, chances are the pilot jet is plugged.

The first thing to wear on the carb would be the needle seat. Anyone know if this is replaceable?
