Rear is a Pirelli scorpion XCMS with 18-20psi. (almost bald)

After taking a close look at the video I see that my front tire hit the rock I had placed under my kick stand.

Pause the video and go through the crash scene with the arrow keys on your keyboard, it's better that way

I did examine this vid in slow motion. 18-20 psi is a bit too much, ur front end might also be a little plush. In the bottum of ur front suspension is compression screw on top is the rebound, set them both at 11 clicks out (counter clockwise) and try the same stunt again with 14 psi rear, 18 front. Let ur video on too cuz this time you'll be running into ur cam and keep on moving...
Ps: don't know if u have steering stabilizer. That could have avoid ur handlebars to shake too far left. Stabilizer are made to eliminate headshakes (or reduce them for that matter).

My problem is finding room on the handlebars for two mirrors.

My brother just picked up a GPS V to use on his DRZ and I hooked him up with a RAM Mounts holder for it.
I have 2 left so if you need one just pm me.

Oh come on, you conveniently forgot about the rock you set there? We can tell you're obviously a professional stunt man!


Ha, just kidding! If it makes you feel any better, I went over the bars today when I hit a hidden mudhole in the woods at about 30mph. Rung my bell pretty good. Sorry, no video.

Looking for a Stator side cover, my buddy's DRZ has been dropped on that side once too many times, it has been fixed with JB weld twice allready.



No case savers, i know i told him about them, hes seen them on my bike, but was too cheap to buy the set

We went off roading today, and the bike took a little dirt nap, when we got home there was oil seeping out of it, i do not think we can JB weld it again, if anyone has one for sale, or know where to find one of those, please let me know, thanks.

Threw on a set of Shinko 244's Saturday and rode 170 miles of pavement with a JT 14t front sprocket that has worn/hooked WAY too soon. Changed the front sprocket yesterday to a 15t Sunstar and put exactly 50 miles on it. I like the way the bike runs with the 15. The 244's stick well and are predictable in the dry stuff. On pavement, they are fantastic. PSI is set to 22r/25f.

I ordered a set of EBC sintered front brake pads. I kinda think the lining on the new pads is thin. How do they hold up? I haven't installed them yet since the OEM fronts have what appears to be plenty of lining left.

you notice the 244's being fairly noisy? I have one on the back of my KLR, it was a freebie. I don't mind the noise as I listen to music anyway, and it does behave well on road and off. But it just seems louder than any tire I ever used.

I pulled the carb and opened it up to find this:
See the cracked black rubber in the diaphragm? There were pieces floating around inside the pump cover. Also noticed my float bowl gasket was a bit tired looking.
I ordered a rebuild kit from eBay, for a little less than ordering individual parts from Rocky Mountain would have been. Hope to get it soon, so I can get riding again.

I also had an issue with this diaphragm before. I couldnt find it but i had a very meticulous mechanic who was able to locate a tiny tear in the AP diaphragm. I would have never found it!
