Crap is that what I was supposed to be doing over the winter ??

On a side note.. what's the correct procedure for replacing and adjusting a clutch cable on a DRZ (or probably any bike)? I was having some issues with mine recently where I couldn't get it to a point where it didn't crawl with the clutch pulled in. I eventually did but I feel like I have little or zero adjustment available and that doesn't seem right unless perhaps my clutch disks are that worn out.. A possibility I suppose but I suspect I'm missing something in my installation/adjustment..
It's like 3-5 mm free play between the perch and lever. If you can't get adj there you might need to go into the secondary adjuster. I have a manual I can send you tomorrow if you don't have one. Those clutches are known to be tough but look what we do to them.

Picture you posted looks like 103 A-2, which came out in 1960. I have a very rare A-0 here at the shop, was gonna restore it some day but eventually realized that it's too much of a project for me, so it just sits...

Now that I have it, I'm not sure why I bought it.

2006 with less than 3500 miles. New battery, upgraded chain and pegs.

+1 Those are the best graphics I've seen on a DRZ.

Where did you source the screen?

Thanks all!

The graphics are from AMR racing. They will make custom graphics for you to the tune of $ 350 shipped. Just need to give them some direction. Very good quality stuff. Expensive but everything I could find pre made was rubbish with skulls all over. I love classic Motorsport so this was the way to go.
