Could you post pic of the grips and link me the riding pants?

My FJR has heat grips, my DRZ needs them. Once you have had heated grips it's hard to go back!

I'll get some good pics tomorrow. They are just the stick on type that go under the grips. Hi/Low switch, etc. Real simple design, but a bitch to find a place to mount the switch. I ended up having to fabricate a panel.

Pants are the Typhoon pants made by Bilt, a store-brand of Cycle Gear. They are "on sale" right now for $79.99. Getting good reviews, so I decided to pick up a pair. I'm gonna stick my old pair of First Gear HT overpants in the Flea Market in a couple days. 42Tall and never even got them dirty.

I hate to say it guys, but I'm out tomorrow also. My SuperCrapp muffler blew apart (for the 2nd time) and when I put the stocker back on, the bike is jetted way to rich and won't run for more than 2-3 blocks before dying.

I guess I'm either rejetting or ordering a new muffler tomorrow instead.

I WILL STILL BE AT G'S in the morning. It's like 3 minutes from the house, I'll still join you guys for brefas.

Two questions

What is the minimum air pressure you guys have run on D606's without tire locks(stock tubes)?
I havent adjusted the shocks on my DRZ400s from stock. I am sure they need tuning to my weight. Who has adjusted theirs?

16. (Get rim locks. One for each wheel, and balance the rim with stick on weights.)

I have. Worth. Every. Penny.

Pull the shims on the needle first. There may be a stock main jet over at 2fast's, he has all my jets.

That muffler has been laying around for a while, has somebody moved into it?
