They're Taking Your Forests - ACT NOW !!!

Your future use of and access to all national forests nationwide could


be damaged or eliminated by a decision that will be made by a key Bush

Administration official with the Department of Agriculture in charge of


Forest Service late Friday.

It will only take five minutes of your time to click on a special e-mail

letter addressed to the key Congressmen and Mark Rey, Undersecretary of

Agriculture responsible for the Forest Service using the URL below.


go immediately to the following site and click on your letter. It is so

easy and so important.


********** CLICK LINK BELOW **********

What's the problem?

The Forest Service is still infected with hundreds of policy makers left

over from the Clinton Administration. They support ecosystem


That is a new word for getting rid of access, forestry, mining,


and most recreation in our national forests. In other words, the

elimination of MULTIPLE USE and the use of PRIVATE PROPERTY.

Friday Mr. Rey must make a decision about whether or not to pull back



Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA).

This plan sets the stage and creates the environment to make it possible

for the Forest Service to get rid of multiple-use in all the national

forests in the Sierra Nevada in California and Nevada. It also


all private property owners in the Sierra Nevada. It attacks the water

supply for large areas of California and Nevada.

Why should you care if you don't live in California or Nevada?

If the Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA) (ECOSYSTEM PLAN)


through, it will set a precedent for the massive elimination of most

elements of multiple use AND private property in every national forest

throughout America.

There must be an uprising of all private property and multiple use

advocates by sending specially crafted e-mail letters Wednesday,


and Friday. Congress and the Forest Service must be overwhelmed by your


This is the Bush Administration. Can't I feel secure they will make the

right decision protecting private property and multiple use in our




This is the exact mistake private property and multiple-use and


advocates made when Ronald Reagan was elected. They made the same


when George Bush was elected in 1988. Now our side is making the same

mistake with the new Bush Administration. Because we keep making the


mistake, we keep losing.

Multiple use, recreation and private property advocates are taking the


Administration for granted.

That is a loser.

If we had not taken them for granted already, the plan would not be this

far along and we would have had a better chance at a good decision. It


critical that you rise up and bang on the brain of the new Bush

Administration. If you don't the other side will take your rights. It


natural for officials, no matter what their history, to go toward the


of least resistance.

Our side is sitting down. We're so tired of fighting the Clintonites


we just want to TRUST that the new Bush Administration will do the right

thing. It will not happen if we don't do our job. We must create the

clamor for what we want. You can be sure those people who want to get


of multiple use, recreation and private property rights will be doing



All of us must act quickly create the clamor for what you want or you


lose. Big time.

Don't lose your rights by sitting on your hands. Don't let a decision


on the surface affects California and Nevada undercut your rights and

future use of all national forests.

Call your Congressman and both Senators Wednesday, Thursday and Friday


urge them to ask the Bush Administration Agriculture Department


to pull back the Sierra Nevada Forest Plan Amendments (SNFPA) (ECOSYSTEM

PLAN) for review. The best thing is for them to overturn the plan.

If our side sits on its collective hands now, then we will all deserve


loss of rights and uses that will come with doing nothing.

That must not happen.

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll do my part and I challange all Colorado riders especially the natives to let their voice be heard before the greenies form california take hold, they already have a toe in the door here in Colorado. They have californicated this place really bad. :)

Done. I sent this to many sites. I bet our California friends don't reply to this :)

Hey, I heard that! I'm from California and I responded. Dont group me in with all those liberals. There are plenty of people here fighting for their freedoms, farmers ranchers, off road enthusiast's It's just that we are out numbered by the entertainment industry, the enviormentalists, and the uneducated or political ignorants. The liberal democrats have controlled congress for 40 years and the poor are still poor.

I have responded. I will say this... The greens in this state SUCK!! Not only do I disagree with most everything they say, but they actions are not even fair. In general.... If we all live here and you enjoy walking through a national forest and I enjoy riding my DRZ, then there should be a place for EACH to go to. They would rather kick us OUT. I am for being fair about use of our lands, if anyone should be complaining about lack of area to do our thing it should be US "ALL OFFROAD USERS".

One pissed off Cal. native.

PMAUST , I have responded. Our voices are heard.

I got a response from the Ford Motor Company concerning my letter to them of their support of the Audubon Society's public land lock up agenda. Here it is:


Dear Mr. Hill

Thank you for your comments about Ford Motor Company Fund's grant to the National Audubon Society. We appreciate you taking the time to bring your concerns to our attention, and helping raise our awareness of different points of view.

First, I want to clarify that our grants in the environmental area concentrate on educational initiatives. Our intent with the National Audubon Society grant was meant in this spirit, and it was limited to environmental education and bird monitoring programs, however, we understand your concerns.

Ford Fund is the philanthropic arm of Ford Motor Company. Education is Ford Fund's top priority, and our environmental grants are only a small part of our overall giving. The Fund supports non-profit organizations in five priority areas – education; environment; public policy, health and welfare; civic affairs and community development, and arts and humanities.

Ford Motor Company values its customers, and we appreciate your loyalty. Your comments have raised our awareness, and are helpful as we evaluate future contributions.

Thank you for contacting us.


Sandra E. Ulsh


So if you think our response doesn't matter, think again. I only told Sandra about how strongly that I was opposed to the Audubon society's agenda and how that it might persuade my next Auto purchase. :)

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!
