I already have a Uni, just need to get the jet kit and do it all in one shot with a larger gas tank.

I was going to run some gearing calcs to see what made sense, but sounds like you already have the magic numbers.

Thanks!

after you're done with the drz, can we put together my exc...


quote=Vermon]but I think I want to stick with the 4 stroke, can't believe I'm saying that but I like that low end and lug action, plus I think they are a little more reliable right[/quote]

bermon, just keep the drz and remove whatever you don't need; might be able to shed off 10 lbs.

in the long run, the drz will outlast an exc.... exc is a great and beautiful bike; just like gorgeous women...they're high maintenance. ex. an oil change cost $60.
