No worries dude,l forget my wife's name sometimes!


Mick.


PS,the Las Vegas dual sports club had a Family Day barbecue yesterday here in 'Vegas at Centennial park,& what a great day it was for people to "put names to faces',or more appropriately,'put faces to names" because when you are on a web-site like these,you are only corresponding with an avatar mostly.
Well done to those who organised the day,& a big thanks to whoever brought those really tasty chicken legs!!!!!!!!


Anyway,it's a real small club,but gets the off-roaders together in this slightly outa the way city for weekly,& if you live near to Jason,some midweek afternoon rides(! )so anyone in the area give it a look at,
www.lvnvdualsports.com & when you register,you'll get access to a few more forums like upcoming events & the for sale forum etc:

best risers?

I asked this question awhile ago but now can't find where it was posted?

Anyway, I'm 6'6" with a 2007 400E and somebody told me about the best risers and handlebar combo. Any suggestions? Thanks

Here Mine

Here is mine, at least for a little longer. I'm upgrading to a KTM 450 EXC. These bikes are pretty much bulletproof if you just change the oil and do regular maintenance. I took it to Baja and had no problems with the big boys on the 640/650s



It's for sale in the flea market: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=258021 SOLD

drz400 supermotard

I'm researching drz 400's and I really like the supermotard bike. What do you guys think about them? Also, is it possible to put hard bags on the 400 (or feasible)?

I will be using the bike for commuting and getting to some backcountry trout streams.

there aren't a lot of hard case options. the DRZ isn't really designed to carry a lot of weight. most people use soft paniers or just put stuff on a rack. you could get a heavier DS bike that isn't so good on trails, or a DRZ which is great offroad but doesn't handle heavy loads as well.

it depends on which is more important.

It won't be heavy loads. I weigh 170 and I would be packing max 20-25 lbs.

mods include:
2 Trail Tech HID lights....just got em, looking forward to being able to see in the dark. I am think of mounting one MR16 halogen light for driving during the day so as not to blind anyone with my non road legal trailtech HID's.

Kenda trackmaster tires
Happy trails tail rack
bar risers
used skid plate off of ebay (its ugly but works well)
Devol radiator guards..they work well and have the dents to prove it
CFC case guards
High bars
Just installed a rekluse clutch with a new Dunlop clutch.
Installing a Scotts steering stabilizer next week.
IMS 3.2 gallon tank
Black front fender (reflects less light back at me at night...still want to paint it flat black).
Factory connection work done on forks and rear shock by previous owner. I will be sending the suspension back to them for an overhaul in a couple weeks.
Custom LED 2nd brake light...need replace stock brake light as the 1157 bulbs keep exploding from the vibration.
stock exhaust
Stock seat....need a better one.
Chris Herman built Brush guards mounted on Moose hand guards. I had a set of the Tusk units but the mount broke.
Endurance computer and aluminum mount for distance and speedo, also have an ICO to mount.

DRZ big-bore kits

All,

I don't own a DRZ (yet) but am planning on getting one this fall. I posted a question about max power big bore kits in the 'equipment' forum but since the DRZ is the only DS bike that the company makes kits for, I figured it would be appropriate here too.

Has anyone tried one of these kits, or any other big bore mods? How does that affect long term reliability? I've seen motocrossers that are bored, but since motocross engines come apart fairly regulary, longetivity isn't as big a concern.

Any thoughts on big-bore kits?

By sea or by air, it's hard to beat the DRZ as a reliable attack vehicle...
