MRD is on the way!!!

sold a ltz400 bottom end i had kicking around, that i obviously didn't need, got $560 on ebay, woohoo! perfect for getting the mrd. waiting to hear back from dave. i am trying to get my can anodized or powdercoated blue! or have the exhaust come with the can disassembled with the right hardware to reassemble it after being coated.

Right on, but I think you mean Dave. :thumbsup:

In "Something About Mary" Ben Stiller's Character was urged to clean out his pipes before going on that date with Cameron Diaz's character. Take my advice: Clean out your pipes before opening up the box that arives from MRD beacuse once you see the gorgeous curves and fat final exhaust opening you're going to need some serious help in restraining yourself. I didn't and my wife ended up kicking me out of the house for two weeks after she caught us.

As far as powdercoating it blue, that's like touching up a Van Gogh original with colors of your own fancy. Like the Oakland Raiders, an MRD/SSW is meant to be Silver and black!

MRD = Awesome(+28hp!!)

Raiders = Suck/Losers!

Dem clowns need a little pink on their uniforms.

Just a little ribbing for ya!!:thumbsup:

well he got back to me, he said he has tried anodized and it didn't hold up well, and that he never tried powdercoat.

he then said to order the pipe, and he would send me the unfinished can to have coated and to then send it back and he would assemble it all. going to talk to the coater tomorrow to check his colors and get a sample.

if it was meant or has to be silver/black i guess i will be the only one, but somehow doubt that!

Riiiight Smrookie, the Charger's have definitely won their fair share of Superbowls. :thumbsup:

Dats because they don't have you on the roster, and they got rid of "Ryan Grief," oh I meant Drew Brees. :lol:

We all know who the real team is......Go Patriots

I ordered one also. It would have been delivered today, but I wasn't around to sign for it.

Which really sucks, because I was home all damn day, and the 20 mins I was not here is when they tried to deliver it. arrrrggggg.

      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
