    Jetting for ice riding

    1800 screws in the tyres? You guys are nuts. No way you'd get me racing a 50hp chainsaw

    Oil Change Help

    Hey DRZ'ers. A friend has bought a DRZ-E and asked me to help change the oil for him. He didn't get a manual with the bike, so I'd appreciate if you could answer a couple of Q's please How much oil is needed with a new filter, and without? Is there any special drill or procedure for oil changes? Can you recommend a manual for the bike? Thanks for your help

    Exhaust upgrade

    I have a CRD Performance pipe, which is pretty quiet at 91db. I'm in the UK and noise is a very big issue over here right now. Bike has been rejetted to suit the exhaust (with airbox lid removed too) and there are pretty strong gains right through the rev range.

    Airbox airflow???

    I have a YZ rear fender on my bike, and when I fitted it I noticed it has an air intake moulded into it where it meets the back of the seat. The standard WR rear fender butts up to the seat and almost makes a seal. I guess any addition to airflow into the airbox will help. I've got the snorkel lid removed too and rejetted to suit as per suggestions from JD.

    Hard starting after truck transport?

    The vibration/rocking could be forcing the fuel that is already in the pipe to the carb into the carb and flooding it? Just a guess, and God only knows how you'd stop it short of pulling the pipe off and letting it drain before transporting???

    How do you get your bikes so clean ?

    Careful use of a pressure washer, and a product we get in the UK called 'Muc-off'. Never let me down yet When you ride over here through winter, you get pretty intimate with cleaning mud off your bike

    Cam Breather Pipe Re-positioning

    Cool. Thanks for the tips guys. Cheers.
  9. Hi All Long time since I visited TT. Hope everyone is good. Has anyone re-positioned the breather pipe from the top of the engine that exits at the bottom below the engine guard? It's always bothered me, and with all the rain and water we get in the UK, I'm worried it is going to suck water up one day. Any ideas? I had thought of routing it into the airbox, or up behind the headlight? Thanks. David

    Recommended Air Filter Oils and Cleaners

    Thanks for the replies. I used the No-Toil stuff before and liked it, but I can't get it in the UK anymore . I'll phone around the local shops. Don't think I'll be doing much riding this weekend anyway. Everywhere is under about 2 feet of flood water...
  12. What air filter oils and cleaners do you guys use? I've been using PJ1 and I've run out so I may change brands. Any suggestions? Thanks

    Rear Lience Plates

    Go to MAL Numberplates. Can't remember the number, but they are in Wellingborough so you should be able to go through the operator. They do flexible plastic 7"x5" plates that should survive OK.
