how far can u wheelie your drz be honest :bonk:

about 10 feet.

10-15' first gear only:moon:. 2nd cluthes about 5' once or twice :bonk:

the bug

I've never measured. I'm usually more concerned with getting the front wheel high enough to clear a log or whatever is in my way.

hmmm 1/4 mile maybe. Ive done just about a mile long wheelie while riding my 450 on a dry lake bed.

Around a 1/4mile on my S.

About 30 feet. I suck!

Maybe 10 feet on really good day. :bonk:

I was told by a friend who can wheelie for miles (55 mph on Route 1, Maine, crazy bast@rd), that if you didn't learn to do it when you were young and stupid, you probably wont be able to learn now either. :bonk:

I can wheelie my quad maybe 30 feet.

Mike -

ive never tried to go for distance but one stretch i wheelie all the time is about 1/4 mile. once you hit the balance point and its not windy its pretty easy to keep it up in any gear. 3rd gear stand ups are probably the most stable for distance.

I can't wheelie my DRZ too well (stock SM) but I've wheelied 450's for over a half mile, but that was 5 years ago. I just cruise on the DRZ. If it was modded up the front would be always in the air!

As far as I feel like. I usually don't go for miles because after a while there's no point, but get to the balance point and the Deezer will go on one wheel for as long as you care to.

as long as you dont let it get too low in the revs:) ive had some issue going up hill in 4th, slowing down and bogging a bit. ever happen to you?

50m on a good day. I also suck.

Also, it depends how full my tank is. Sometimes it scares me how fast it comes up and I put it right back down. Other times I'm chasing it and don't go far at all.

About 10 foot if I try really hard...:bonk:

I have never really measured how long.. But on my stock SM its as long as the road permits.. Which is not much around here.. Maybe slightly more than 1/4mile.. Usually its roundabouts that stop me.. My longest one was on the motorway!:bonk: I wheelied from 2nd to 5th gear. 125km/h on the speedo when i put the wheel back down coz of a roundabout! the nicest part was the faces of the drivers i the cars i overtake!:bonk: i must say.. im proud of it!:bonk:

Oh and im young and stupid too!

Till the rev limiter kicks in. If I start off in third the distance is decent I guess. I am not really a balance point stand up wheelie type of guy. That always seems to be a little bit desperate for attention. More of a sit down power wheelie guy with just enough lift to keep it up. With the way cops are these days I usually only pop em where I know there is zero chance of a meeting with the popo.

My biggest issue is going for distance with the knobbies! Trailwings? All day. A 140 sized XCMH? You can really feel those knobs starting to walk! :bonk:

i just power up in forth get to the balance point shift to 5th and 1/4 throtle as far as the road permits or if in dirt til the ruts catch the tire and freak me out.

another tarded 19 year old

good answers how many circle wheelies can u do and do you know of a company selling hand brake kits for the drz

rev limiter didnt know i had one on the drz i can wheelie as far as you want in first gear with stock gearing its all about low rpms and the rear brake

      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!
