Hmmmn. Here it is $40 for two years. I think you guys still have a better deal.

You meant front master cylinder right? By looking at the OEM diagrams, it doesn't seem that it has anything in regards to a front brake switch.

I am just trying to keep the price down and was thinking that there might be a switch that I can hook up quickly.

I may just have take my chances without the front brake switch and see how it goes with the inspection.

Yes. I have something similar for my rear brake and that works great. That was already there when I bought it though. Seems like it may take a hack job to make it work. The question on this topic was just to see if anybody else had done it so that I don't have to re-invent the wheel. Well maybe somebody in ThumperTalk may have done it. Just have to find the right thread. Thanks as always for all your suggestions.

Well, the DRZ was the oldest,slowest, and only air cooled bike at the event. It passed many, many faster fancy bikes!
Cheers to you little Suzuki!

Hey Td,
I do have it wired up. I just need the switch. Most other things that are needed here are taken care of. I am just gonna try to get it inspected this weekend hopefully.

Hungry is right! Or maybe thirsty is better?

There was a lot of mud holes and the Montana prarie clay/muck had her a spinnin on some of the climbs. I really didnt think I had a snowballs chance on some of them but she just tractored up em one after another.

So how would you rate them Maxxis' tires you have on? Not so good for clay? what are they best in ? Is there any tire that does well in clay/wet mud?

Yeah, I kinda felt bad for her, but she is a trooper!
I have been getting 50 mpg in normal trail riding.
