DRZSM400 raced at beaver run

Recommended Posts

My friend and i raced our new DRZ's this past weekend.We only have 600 miles on them .We stripped all the light's off and wired all the thing's that needed wired. We also put a 14 tooth countershaft sproket on.For a bike that weigh's around 300 pound's they went really good.We both raced novice and i ended up 2nd overall and he finished back a few spot's.It was his first sm so he took it easy.I had a great race with a guy on a 425 ktm in the vet35+.We battled for 9 laps until i overshot a corner and dumped it in the grass.Still finished 4th overall .We thought not to bad for stock bikes that you can ride on the street. A little down on power but they were still fun to race. Its not alway's the bike that make's you fast,you still have to ride it.

Try a 44T on the rear next time around. Congrats on placing well and having fun. :applause:

Last year I raced my DRZ S converted to SM at Beaver Run, along with a few practice days. Definitely F-U-N. As you said, the DRZ is a little under powered, but plenty capable. :banghead:

Hey Mike,

No racing this year??? Are you and Jay just street hooligans now??

I have lapped at the Beaver four times, but always on the big track with my Triumph. Maybe I'll get some street rubber for my "S" and hit the SM track some time (practice, not race).

Linco,

What's up? I hope all is well with you. Jay is the new owner of an existing Honda dealership in Boone, NC. Things are going very well for him in the short time he has been there. I have been in career change hell for the past few years, so my desire to race this season has been tempered by financial reality. But don't worry, I have my priorities in order. I am working on a solution that will let me be able to pursue all the motorcycling exploits that I am used to pursuing. :banghead:

Mike
