Love the DR-Z

Recommended Posts

I finally got the plate for my DR-Z E. Have ridden it about 100 miles off-road and 200 on road and I love the bike all the way around it performs excellent, but I have a couple of questions: 1. it seems to be using some oil when I ride, 2. when on the road it seems that the steering is very tight. Are these things normal or what could be the problem? Thanks for the input. :cry:

ya mean ya drz is burning up some oil? perhap the piston/ring have worn off, does it emit white smoke??

heavy steering --> check ya front tyre pressure, it could be too low for street use.

Is it brand new? Has it been sitting at a dealers for a an extended period? Mine (im 99% sure) had a rusted bottom stem bearing and never really felt right from the time I took it home.

After replacing the bearing it turns smoother than it ever has.
