    2000 KTM EXC 250

    That's a SMOKING deal. Congrats on your new smoker! I just picked up a 1998 250 EXC and have been enjoying the hell out of it.

    Spark arrestors?

    I was in the same boat and ended up ordering a new can. I'm riding the Sheetiron 300 next weekend and the flyer very clearly states that spark arresters are required and must be Forest Service Approved. On the plus side, a brand new FMF Q can was only $140 shipped. Gotta love two strokes

    The 690 Picture Thread

    Hell yes, John. You and I need to go hit some twisties soon. I'm riding on the 1st of Aug. Join me if you like. No clue what route yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out between now and then.

    Here's my new beaker! I love this thing so far. :banana:

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Today, I sold my DRZ. I'm going to miss it, but I hope to enjoy my 690 SM more than I miss my DRZ. Time will tell....
  6. Wallcycle, did you ever find out much more info? I'm most likely going to be buying an '07 690 SM this week, and would love to know. Also, I was wondering if anyone has info regarding aftermarket exhaust systems for the '07. It's easy to find them for the SMC (08/09) but not the SM (07). Any info that people would have would be great!

    tires for the drz sm

    I just wish we could get supermoto-specific tires like the Mutant over here in the States. Closest place I've found them is through our gentle neighbors to the north...*sigh*

    tires for the drz sm

    My first real ride with the BT-016 rear was in the rain. I wasn't pushing, but the bike felt VERY planted. I spun it up a few times under acceleration, but turn-in and mid-corner felt great. It probably helped that I had the rain tire up front, but so far I am VERY happy with the BT-016. Great tire!

    Professional rider, closed course, right?

    tires for the drz sm

    I bet the Rossos will last longer than you think. I'm currently running them on my Multistrada 1000S and they're wearing quite nicely. I didn't know they came in a 150 or I might have bought one of them for my DRZ instead of the BT-016. I can't complain about the Bridgestone, though. It's quite sticky, and goes nicely with my super soft/sticky rain tire up front. Great combo!

    My DRZ growls and snarls

    Maybe the OP is a fatty? I'm a 260 pound tub of lard and my mileage isn't great. Of course, I have an FCR and such, which doesn't help. Still, I think I am getting about 40-43 mpg. I would wager that a lighter rider on my bike would be getting 50+. oh well, time for some Jenny Craig action, I guess.

    Easy Kickstand switch solution

    That's how I interpreted it, and I applaud his creativity. Nice work!

    Moto GP at Laguna Seca

    Yeah, it does suck that they're doing it over the 4th. Lame. As for the Hill House, that's been going for about the past 5 years, and it gets bigger and better every year. Next year, let me know and you and your group can even reserve space at the house if you want. We have 5 bedrooms and offer limited floor space (we provide air mattresses, of course).

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Yesterday I changed the oil and filter, cleaned my air filter, and FINALLY bypassed the clutch interlock. I can't believe I waited 6 months to do something that took all of 5 minutes.

    Moto GP at Laguna Seca

    TJ, sorry you can't make it this year. For anyone else attending, I'm there at Laguna every year (9th year in a row for WSBK/MotoGP). We have seats in the turn 4 grandstands, and we always rent a big house not too far away at the Los Laureles Lodge. I'm actually the president of a Ducati owners club (Pantaheads) and we have a HUGE group of folks staying with us at the "Hill House." If you feel like coming over, you are welcome any time. We have a big dinner on Friday night with a modest cover charge of $15 or $20 to cover all of the food and craft beer you could ever want. I bring about 60-80 gallons of beer every year, including a lot of mine and some from other microbreweries. This year, Alec Moss at Half Moon Bay Brewery is donating 25 gallons to the cause! The beer is on tap all weekend, and there are some BEAUTIFUL bikes in the driveway (especially on Friday). My dad will be out, as always, from Texas, so he'll be on my Duc. That means that my lil' yellow DRZ will be parked amongst all of its much larger italian cousins. Gotta love it when the group president shows up on a Japanese bike, eh? Anyway, if anyone wants to go, just send me a PM and I'll give you more info. Enjoy the races!!!!
