What happened to Dr.billz?

Will this be censored too?

ZAP, vanished! I gather that he tee'd someone off.

Zap and now another board has to babysit him.

Far as I know, You are the "useless" one. Never heard of you before. I'm otta here.

A little search reveals alot. :) Anyway, it looks like Dr Billz has gotten into a pissing match with the moderators. :D From what I have read, it seems that the TTadmins are willing to work with him to resolve what ever the issue is. Hopefully, he will work it out with them.

I am out of here also. Too much BS flying around. Too many cry babies.

I'll stick with ExtremeDirtBike.com


HEY KNOCK IT OFF! This site is "straight talk about 4-strokes," (See above?) Not "Straight talk about DrBillZ" or "Straight talk about People talking about 4-strokes." Get over it....

who the hell is dr billz

Got thru researching the posts and replies and this is what I see was the "problem"

1)DRbilz kidded someone about "front shocks". If someone doesn't know bikes any better than that, he deserves a little lighthearted kidding. and if he can't take a little kidding he needs to move on.

2)he said of another site's Moderators "Atleast some pinhead Moderator isn't in here telling you what you can and can't say". I think Moderator Bill thought he was talking about him.

That is about it as far as I see. Anyone have anything else?

DRbilZ mentioned in one post that he tried to contact the Admin and they wouldn't talk it over, over e-mail. they even ignored his e-mails.

Atleast he, DRbilZ didn't spout stuff about drinking and riding like some are doing now. That kind of stuff tarnishes our reputation a LOT worse than a little kidding. I think the Admin owes DRbilZ and the members here a big apology.

Bottom line: I watched the whole sorry affair (it all went down about a month ago) and both sides of the "argument" made valid points, although I think the good Dr's move to extremedirtbike.com is TT's loss. Don't misunderstand me, I like TT's format and a lot of the regular folk are extremely knowlegeable, but DrBillZ was a veritable DRZ encyclopaedia and his insight (and occasionally) cutting wit is sadly missed.

I agree with you two. I talked to Bill the other day, and I am very sad to see him move to another forum. It would be nice if the moderators would appologize to him and invite him to join the forum again. His input and knowledge is very valuable.. Crow doesnt taste that bad....

Well said, SchlepRock. And after all... it is Christmas. (good will and all that)

      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!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
