New Years Resolutions!

okay, for me its gota be 1 or all of the 3 following:

1: ride the drz much more often :)

2: get a girlfriend, been single for like half a year now (hey I'm 18 half a year is a long time to me)

3: finish up school and ride the drz more :D

....well and maybe some of the less important stuff like try to be a better person...etc...etc...blah blah blah :D

I have so many resolutions I need to apply to myself I don't no where to start. Here is my three:

1. Fire my financial advisor for listening to the analyst on Wall Street. (read Enron)

2.Ride twice as much as last year.

3. Try and gat along better with the neighborhood cats. ( yeah right! :) )

At the top of my list is to ride even more. I logged about 6500 miles this year on a ZR-7 and the DRZS. Hotler, I'm your age and I didn't ride for about 15 years, so I feel I have a lot of time to make up. :D Man, I saw some sweet bikes at the show yesterday. One being the FZ1 from Yamaha. Maybe I might have to add a bike to the stable. :D But yeah, Gyro, on my list too, is to try to be a better person. Don't worry about a thing. Just enjoy being 18, cause I'll tell you, before you no it, your 46! :D

HAPPY NEW YEAR to my fellow DRZer's! :)

Good Morning on this fine New Years Eve !!!

Firs thing before I declare my new resolution,

Don't Drink and Drive Tonight !!! Thanks much.

I'll stay on my podium now.

My resolution is.

1.Never to publicly announce my resolutions.

Gotcha! :)

Just the same as everyone.

Ride more. Be a cooler person to everyone.

Try to eat healthier, drink less booze, and all

that other blahx3. Roost on brothers/sisters !!!

How about join a club or some some other organization like BRC to make a concerted effort to help our sport? That's mine. :)

"Before ya know it your 46"

Ya got that right! LOL

heh 18 to 46 must come quick then? lol

Live it up while you can- any age

Happy New Years


1.(Walk the thin line) Riding as much as I can without my girlfriend giving up on me.

2.Pay off the car (or)

3.Get a truck (sell the car)

4.Get my Architect Stamp

5.10,000 motorcycle miles on the road, 5,000 on the dirt

WAIT, that didn't sound right I don't go that way really I don't. You all know I like women don"t you??? :):D

To get my family more involved in trail riding with me (could be construed as a selfish desire by me for more trail time)...and it is :)

      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
