    Iridium spark plug

    id have thought that a better plug would produce a better spark enabling better combustion and power. it hurts my brain to think about how it would be detrimental to engine performance! i'll give it a try anyway and report back when i ride next.

    spoke issue...

    looked at those diagrams and instructions. helpful but doesnt list spoke lengths for the DR-Z. if i knew what the lengths were i'd be able to tell straight away if the ones i have are too long..i'll keep searching google to find them. any suggestions to where id find them?

    Iridium spark plug

    thats what i was thinking too, apparently they run hot or something, also heard they damage ignition parts like pulser coils and the like.

    Chain wear...

    you will also flog out your chain link clip very quickly too, so keep a spare!

    spoke issue...

    i'll see if i can post a pic up for confirmation. the hub guided the spokes fairly accurately to where they have to be on the rim and i checked them against the rear rim currently on the bike, and they match. one thing i did notice is that the oem spokes on the bike are touching against each other as they cross and they dont on the new one, theres clearance.

    Iridium spark plug

    has anyone out there fitted an ngk iridium spark plug to theyre DR-Z 400? i've heard that it causes problems with the bike.

    get yourself a new chain guide, mine was doing the same thing and a new chain guide solved the prob.

    spoke issue...

    i checked that too, on tt and a few other forums. everything is right except the spoke length. seems odd that they hang out about an inch further through the rim. and thats all of the spokes.

    yes, put the shorties on the disc side, long ones on the sprocket side. the tag on the bag said they are the correct ones also, not oem spokes.

    spoke issue...

    hi all, got all my wheel parts together finally, started assembling my rear wheel first, consisting of a talon hub mated to an excel rim. lacing together with bulldog spokes. ok, heres the issue...the spokes are too long. by that i mean they are snugged up to the end of the spoke thread and are still loose. my question is whether the bike shop supplied the wrong spoke lengths or im doing something wrong, which i very much doubt....any thoughts??
