But when I noticed it lifted up and was a bit more generous on the throttle and the front end really went up. It's raining and the grass is really slippery but when everything gets nice outside I'll definitely take a vid.
Now I wanna try that too.

When I bought my 2nd hand 2002 DRZ250, it had 22,600 kms on it. Is that a lot? I mean, how much life would the engine have left after having accumulated that much distance? and would it still perform to a good level with that amount of wear?
Every bike is obviously different..and they would have their own life spans. Some take longer to wear in after riding off brand new...some reach their peak and die quick...etc
Enlighten me on the DRZ engine's capabilities please. Maybe a percentage of 'life' left that kinda thing.
I really hope my engine hasn't gone over the hill...and it still got a few years before it reaches its peak :p

Wow...Turnenem you take some amazing photos. I like how you work the behavior with the bike and the environment. My Suzi comes back from her vacation on Saturday, with her batteries charged. lmao!

Couple of questions, have u guys ever carried a pillion passenger on ur DRZ250...is it even possible? where are these bikes manufactured in? and Finally...is there a difference between the K1, K2 and K3 versions of this bike?

I rode into the water but hit the kill switch as it was getting too deep, we then lifted it out of the water and onto the bank where it started first time on the button......checked the oil but no water had got into the crank cases

Another shot...

Tool manufacturing

Hi friends,
My name is Dan and I have recently bought a Suzuki 250 Djebel.It is a '97 model but was not started for like 4-5 years .I am from Romania and the bike came from Japan...not to many of them in my country...maybe 2-3.
I am looking to build a toll so to be possible to check my Lub Oil pressure but I do not have the size of the thread and the pitch for the plug situated exactly under L.O. filter cover.For the moment I am on the sea and that is how I have the chance to make me some tools.Maybe you can help me with that information,please?In the manual is presented that device but no informations regarding the plug thread.
To check the compression I have my toll almost ready but I really do not know how long I should get my profile out of the cylinder head area because on top of that is the frame.Maybe 70mm would be OK?(I would connect one hose up to the pressure gauge)
Thank you guys and wish you pleasant rides!
