VICO1,

Is it brand new, it sure looks like it.

Tell me about the wind screen (brand, where did you get it, cost, etc)...I am looking for something to put on my DRZ400 and it looks like it might fit real good.

Thanks

Terrible, but it was still fun to be out in the woods with my old gun.

Vic, a suggestion you'll one day thank me for come tire time is to mount a set of Kenda 270's and make sure to get the 3.25 size up front.

Do you have a permit to hunt those, I mean it's not orange

The seat looks comefee. You already have a bike with a windshield, but with the death wings still hugging the ground it works, and it matches the other Jap bike.

Q & a

No not new. 2009 with 3280 miles.

No clue on with windshield except it took me less than 5 minutes to mount it!
I love it.

Need tires badly so thanks for the tip.
Awesome pic looking down the barrel Tony.

WE are having carb issues at the moment. It was good for lowering price so now I hope I and fix it...

Took it out today for 40 mile journey. Its about what I expected/hoped for.

Any hints on carb isse. Mid range stutter and searching when cruising. Just not running clean. Could be simple lack of use and old gas/semi-clogged jets etc. Hell dirty air filter for all I know...

I'd take the carb off and soak it in solvent. Probably gummy in there Vic.

They are infamously lean out of the box. Search on the thumpers thread. Lot if good jetting info to get around the midrange surge.

My last DR650 (R_bin's current bike) showed the same symptoms until I drilled the slide and raised the needle a little. It's an easy 30 minute job and really changed the way my bike ran. Hope that helps. It's a great bike and you'll have a lot of fun with it.......

Damn sure did.

The pundits who say that regional rivalries are unpredictable are sorta right.

I think I've seen more folks go for it on 4th down today than in the rest of the season.

OOoooops. TD, auburn.
