Mezo.
So is that you in this photo Mezo it's priceless, bearded and pondering your DR dualsport project, living room and your best coffee table to boot.
Only the good die young, you and I'll live forever... You put half the effort into researching the cayenne issue, as we do our motorcycles and you'll have two successful rebuilds on your hands !

996DL

A rented basement suite with one bay of a double garage,
two beloved Manx/cross cats,
a few too many motorcycles,
and that's about it...

And I only wish I was in Australia !

All Mezo's photos are priceless. In fact, I have to try and recreate his photo standing with his "babies." Look back to find it and you'll see. Granted I only have one "baby" so I will have to think of something clever.

Mezo, dude, what are you doing! A heart attack at 43? Good that you realize it's time to sort out what you stuff down your pipe - be it booze or food. In addition to a good regular diet I would also recommend a high dose of fish oil rich in EPA and DHA. This will help with blood flow in addition to countless other benefits. I'll send you a PM with some more thoughts.

Now stick around, we are counting on you to finish the first official Ebay/ADVrider DR build!

Are you using a name brand oil? If it's giving you burps, try freezing the capsules. The better solution is to switch to a higher quality product like Carlson's, which you can get cheap in the US, $22 for 1/2 liter. Much easier to take 3 big spoons than swallowing 50 capsules a day, plus it's lemon flavored so girls digg it.

I go out a lot myself, although I have the booze very well under control. Unfortunately no way around that if you value your health.

PS: If you want to have another heart attack go right ahead and get some rugrats.

Mezo.
Yeah, freezer. The oil will not go solid but the cold temperature will help you with digestion.

Let's switch the nutrition discussion to PMs, this thread will become mandatory reading for DR650 aficionados after all.

Oh I dunno. A 3rd gear blowup could be considered the bike having a heart attack.

What's a 3rd gear blowup? No idea what you are talking about.








Denial works best for people who have tons invested in their DRs.

The stats also say no-one has had a blowup whilst running a pumper carb, fuel injection or a 725 kit...


Just saying...
