Using a drz 440 for freestyle jumps?

Recommended Posts

There is a show well stunt show in leicester uk soon. But not on dirt . On tar mac with metal jumps. My buddy is involved and he uses a ktm 350 whats perfect. But i said if he can get my sm whats a tank compare to his doing some cool stuff i would give him £40 haha he agreed but he said my drz is a heavy girl for that stuff but has good torque! For low power so his going to take it over few jumps of course i will record it ! But do you guys think he could do it? Or will the z just snap haha

Hmmm... a SM (less wheel travel, soft suspension valving, heavy, etc).  Should be interesting :devil:  Really depends on the size of the jumps.

It will be interesting.  Your SM has a good 80lbs over your buddys ktm350.  Its not that fun to jump.  it can be jumped but you will bottom out the suspension pretty hard im sure.  he will probably blow out some seals if its a real mx ramp.  I have seen vids of sportbikes go off those things so im sure your drz can do it, its just what condition it will be after:)  is your suspension stock?

Yep, Launch a DRZ off a ramp no worries. Just remember they dont fly well,, but they do a GREAT plummet!

All the extra weight means harder on the frame, steering stem bearings, axles etc. Are we talking 70ft gap here? Do you have good insurance? I know that's a big deal in the UK.

if you take pictures of the landings, you might catch a frame or two of your bike's rims touching down, AND the fork seals blowing at the same time. there's no question the suspension will be down, the rest is a bonus  :jawdrop:
