Well, I finally broke down and ordered a Cylinder Works kit and cam chain for the DRZ. It'll need some head/valve work and should be set for another 20k.

I'm wondering what I'll do when my top end gets whooped out.
Stay 450 or go 480 ?
480 = mo money = mo problems

Shut yo mouth. My 450 is going to magically live forever on it's top end. As soon as you do yours mine will start asking for an upgrade. Fun for all but the wallet.

Just don't go ride a new one and you might be able to make it. Ignorance is bliss.
