    Gearing Help

    Noble- Did you mean 15/44 on a stock DR-Z S? I'm trying to get my head around DR-Z gearing for the highway, too. Thanks Sarah

    DR650 vs. DRZ400

    Thanks ACTman. From what you've seen so far, how does the stock engine with just the basic mods (3X3 &JD jet kit) pull the gears? Still feel like a torquey bike? Thanks again. Sarah

    DR650 vs. DRZ400

    The way I understand it, the ACT wide ratio gear set widens 2nd thru 5th gears, making 5th somewhat like an overdrive. I wonder if that would be the ticket for a street rider. I could swap sprockets for offroad rides. We ride primarily street, but I still like a light bare-bones bike. Sarah

    DR650 vs. DRZ400

    Yes, simple is good. For piling on the miles I may need to shut up and ride what I got. Thanks everybody. Sarah

    DR650 vs. DRZ400

    I've put a bunch of miles on DR650's (Alaska x2) but prefer a lighter bike. I'm a wuss on trails but ride a lot of rough roads and gravel so I like the dualsport bikes with 21" front tires. I had a blast putting nearly 30,000 miles on a WR250R but the crankshaft counter balancer bearing failed and there she went; it was all fixed under the extended warranty though, so I consider myself extremely lucky. I figure I killed it on the street; I rode it everywhere and did my best to keep up with my husband and buddies regardless. Anyhow, I'm back on a DR650 for the past 25,000 miles and very happy, except I miss that lightweight, nimble feel the 250 had. I'm wondering if I could get that back if I went to a DRZ? Since I ride easy offroad and mostly street, I'd consider springing for the wide-ratio gearset. What do you all think? Sarah

    buying '08 wrx friday...

    I think they call this the "ultimate airbox mod": http://wr250rforum.forumotion.com/t162-air-box-flapper-mod-strong-hf-content The way I understand it, the programmers are designed to be used with a modded airbox and aftermarket pipe, and are set so from the factory. I've left mine at the default settings and been very happy. You might try that first and see how it goes. Congrats on the bike! Sarah

    Dunlop M71 Geomax Hard Terrain for WR250R?

    Have you looked at the Kenda Trakmasters? I hated those suckers on paved roads but thought they were excellent on the trail. They may not be considered "hard terrain" though.

    Rear Tire

    Not nearly as mean as the 606's, but you might take a look at the Michelin T63's and the Shinko 244's. Halfway thru I flip the front and run it the other way. Here's more on tires: http://wr250rforum.forumotion.com/f26-tires Sarah
