    K&N for Dirt

    we've done the oil sampling thing for years on farm tractors/trucks. they've been able to tell us if there is dirt in the oil, meaning there is a leak in the intake system...sure 'nuff. you can tell if a cam bearing or a main bearing is wearing...tell when the oil goes bad...tell if there is glycol in the oil (water leak)...all sorts of stuff. if it aint oil, they'll tell ya what it is.

    ...oil samples. that's always worked for me on the tractors. i actually put a k/n filter on a tractor in a pinch last year. we ran it thru walnut harvest and the oil sample came back clean. it got pretty dirty.

    why the drz400sm

    i think think a drz400 would be a good first bike for several reasons... good starter size easy to work on parts are very available lots of them on the road which means easy to get help... more of us on this site than any other so there is a HUGE knowledge base very very very reliable ...i think just the knowledge base and reliability aspect is a big factor on what bike to get. it really is a good solid bike with low maint required. there are actually not very many reasons NOT to get one. the only one i can really think of is if you just don't like the suzuki brand.....right???

    08 Klr 650

    the next 150 was great. it could use a bit more power. tho i've been riding my tricked out drz and am use to that power... ...and it could use a bit more 'dirt bike' sound <braaaap> comfort is good. very nice seat. wind protection is good, the wind hits right below my visor (i'm 6'1") guages are in good view. not sure what how many miles to hit reserve. seems like the tank is pretty good size. anyone know??? freeway riding is a bit sketchy. i think a steering stab would make it a bit better. riding in clean air at 80mph is solid tho. i think i'd def buy one...i mean at 5k how could you go wrong? i'd sure like to take it to the dirt, i think it would do pretty good. might need better tires, but i think it'd be pretty good. the one i have is on loan so no dirt for me. i sure like the looks of the ktm 950se but for half the price and better mpg i might get me one of these.
