  1. Had seen a pic here for the Gixxer wind screen, didn't know the mod name.

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    GSXR wind screen ($15), attached to headlight shroud with 3/4 & 2" stand offs using dbl stick tape. Wind hits neck level, very minor buffeting crossing an 18 wheeler bow wake. edit: clears front brake line.

    RM 125 Wheel not fitting on DRZ400SM

    PM ptgarcia, he's done this.

    Tail light but no brake light

    Goo up those electrical connectors with a dielectric (non conducting) grease, usually silicone or trailer connector grease. Corrosion never goes away.

    How does this MRD exhaust packing look?

    Just keep the perforated tube engaged to the mid pipe and is centered while you're packing. Otherwise you fight with the end cap. There should be some compliance (air space) to the packing.

    How does this MRD exhaust packing look?

    FMF used to sell a pink fiberglass packing, easy to unravel and stuff a muffler. The glass mat stuff is good too but a little harder to install. Wear gloves, a dust mask is a recommended. Don't scratch, hot water flush. MRD sells replacement packing. edit: black stuff is soot not oil unless you're running premix, condensation will cause holes in the packing as it burns off.

    Power washing

    Like AR sez, plan on regreasing everything. Good timing since the motor is out.

    Another big bore question

    ADV riding means bullet proof. Just to add, take a look at this LA B to V vid. Paul Flanders (D37) is the guy being interviewed at AV KTM. Mind his words on spares and what to bring, I'd rather preach to the choir than to hear of a lost rider. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ZWUPvr3E7A

    Another big bore question

    Oooo, DV. CVK is just a bigger BSR, constant velocity (CV) carbs are less sensitive to altitude changes. FCR is a streetable race carb, tad more sensitive. Doesn't mean an FCR won't work. Expect an FCR is bit more jetting fussy. I've ridden from South Bay to Wrightwood, jetting was very rich at Krakta Ridge / Mt. Waterman.
