    mileage fluctuations

    you may have also gotten hot fuel. when the fuel is hot it expands then later once it cools down in your tank you end up with less. not a lot but it may make a difference. just a thought.

    DRZ haters

    back to the original question, i raced my mate on a 02 wr250 many many times. beat him every time, he stuck with me till 3rd than i pulled away. this is with 15/47 gearing on my 03 400e,his gearing was standard. these races were on sand, road and just about everything in between. + both bikes were de-restricted with all the adr b/s they make them put on em appropriately tossed in the bin........ however just about every race/hillclimb etc we were both beaten by a 54 year old on a ttr 250. like they all say 90%rider 10%bike. + ya mate sounds like a cocky sh!t and they allways seam to come last.

    Used synthetic for break-in

    I was told by a mechanic (who I trust more than most) that with the coatings on the bore, it does not matter. I went to Motul 5100 (part synth.) at 300km me to. 11000k's still running strong

    i have found a small hole in one of the hoses on the choke side of the carby. it has a sleeve glued to the out side of it in 1 section. can i replace this with any hose or is the sleeve there for a reason? p.s. 03 400e aus version

    Aulstrailia gets the street legal KLX-400R

    you could also get the yz250 and yz 125 2 smokes steet legal. ps can't get the klx any more cause of the kawi-suzi split up. also xr 650r and 650l are no more down here. when 06 supply runs out, thats it.

    freind cant decied on yamaha or honda

    i would recomend a honda 9 times out of 10. but this is the 1 time. i am yet to hear a good reliabillity story from a crf. many from yamahas. personally i wouldn't call them honda's cause they are unlike any previous model's. crf's seem to stop working quite offten. not like the good old xr's. ps i ride a suzi so this is about as un biased as your gonna get.

    Oil and up-keep

    to answer your 2nd question. i have 10000ks, bout 6000 miles i think, on the clock. used about 5 or 6 tires and 1 chain and sproket set. Thats riding sand, gravel, a fair bit of road and the odd burnout.
