I think I figured it out. I replaced my head a few years ago with a s model head cause ups lost mine while being shipped to Eddie. I'm pretty sure I never removed the thermostat from the s model head. I bet it's getting stuck.

Who can do head and valve work? Sisneros doesn't seem to have a good reputation anymore. Who else is there?

Really? I had Eddie do my head years ago and its been great. I think I have about 25,000 or more on the rebuild.

I was planning on sending my rear shock to him to have it serviced in a couple weeks.

New shoes for the DRZ

My 400S needs some new tires. Currently there are D606s on there from the previous owner 90/90-21 on the front and 120/90-18 on the rear. As I am using this bike for mostly highway use the D606s are dieing a rapid death - especially the front tire.

I have Mitas E-07s on my BMW 650 GS and they work quite well for me and are priced decently and was thinking of installing these on my DRZ. Question is will a 140/80-18 fit or rather work shall I say work well for the the stuff that I do, which is to and from work (15km each way on pavement) and weekend back dirt road warrior with no "serious" off road stuff? 140 seems quite a jump up from the original 110 - the issue with the 130 is that is only available in 130/80-18 which is shorter than the original tire by just a bit. I would rather get my RPMs down and not up. Perhaps I am splitting hairs too much and should just to the 130/80s?

That was where the bike was built....I had a garage, but it was not air conditioned So the kitchen worked better. Here you can see the upper motor mounts I widdled down on the mill. I also used cardboard under the stand to prevent scratching the floor.

I got an SMS from my dealer after lunch; part was in already. When I picked it up after work, he'd knocked the price down to $180 . (Apparently the invoice wasn't as much as they had been quoted, so they passed that reduction on to me.)

What's even better, is that the bike works again

Yeah, it seems lately he isn't shipping stuff out when he says and customers are getting pissed. I'm sure his work is great. It's just his logistics are sub par. Nevertheless, I want my stuff back in a timely manner.

So if Eddie isn't the go to guy, who is?

That's a shame. As long as the quality of his work hasn't gone down I'll probably still use him. I don't ride my bike much anymore anyways so I can wait in most cases.

No action shots? Or is there a trip report somewhere for those?

I'd like to know more about what trails you rode, and where the DRZ felt good, vs felt too big. Trying to plan a trip for this fall or next spring.

I tried GT Thunder in Pa once, and got back some really terrible work on a TRX 400 big bore cylinder. He installed oversized head studs and they were all crooked. So bad that the head had to be installed with a rubber mallet!

Eddie is a good guy, but some guys find his personality abrasive. He is just backed up probably and has more work than he knows what to do with.

What exactly do you need done on your cylinder head?

My DRZ is using oil. I think it needs rings, so I'm gonna put a 434 in. I want headwork (ie. bigger valves/ported) so I can maximize the performance. Also, planning on FCR and Hotcams.
