I've got my eye out for a DRZ-SM with a bad engine because I have an RZ350 engine for it.

The poor guy must have problems to walk, huge cojones!

Isle of Man is it, just a cool pic I found on the 'net.


Sorry for the hijack...

Now, can I internally lower the stock XRR forks? Might need to PM BigNasty about that lowered XRR shock he has. I've followed guys riding bikes with lowering links and it looks pretty scary.

Wheels...hard to justify building my own with the cheap Chinese labor putting together the Warp 9 sets...$887 with rotors and a sprocket, I'd be well over $1200 to build my own.

Yeah, it's because there isn't any transmission fluid.

If your oil level is right, then you have the trans too...they share fluids...engine/trans.

Most of those guys are in San Clemente aren't they?

Congrats. That sounds like a great surprise.

This year they called it a different name. Rip to Cabo with like 35 very short episodes on YouTube. I wonder why. Did it have to do with OX or with the big production last year or?

We live there for two years and it seemed like we were running into many of those guys everywhere. But it's the same for Murrieta, El Cahon, Riverside, Canyon lake, and so forth...

That ride is a bit fast for me on two levels. The less obvious is that there is just too much to stop and enjoy down there to haul ass through it all. just my $.02.

Yep, San Clemente. I think the shorter (slower) runs was to accommodate more novice riders as more of a PR event. Besides OX, there have been some pretty serious injuries. The event is now to bring in sponsors etc.

Nice, sort of the TDR thing. I'm rebuilding a clean RZ350 as we speak. Hope to assemble the cases over the holidays.

We now return to our regularly scheduled thread.

Alright, so the other day I rode my bike and the clutch would stick when upshifting hard. Today I rode it a long ways and when I turned back on my road and got down hard on it, it started making a funny noise. It doesn't make the noise if it's clutched all the way, but in any gear, neutral, or just slightly eased off on the clutch it sounds like a giant penny spinning on the ground horizontally. Clutchhhh
