  1. I get most of my stuff online from here... http://www.ktm-parts.com/
  2. Checkout that RMZ 450 kit...That would probably bolt up pretty much to the DRZ... But then again you could probably do it much cheaper...The SM already has the wheels... Just need to get the suspension shortened...Get a Race Fairing and adapt the mounting frame to the DRZ and add some more road race bits (clipons/rearsets)...Really cool idea...And the really cool thing is...You're already road legal...So you just gotta add lights to the race fairing...And you'd have a 300Lb road legal sportbike capable of the 120s (or higher maybe)...
  3. For sure...And then depending on what front tire you're using...When I had a low profile Michelin Pilot Power it was rock steady at high speed...With my current tires (Avon I think) the profile is taller and the front wheel wants to wobble at high speed...Gotta hang my ass off the rear fender and straight arm it above 100mph now...
  4. Smokin'!!...I've never had a 39 on mine...Looks like it should pull it like yours...
  5. 111.84 MPH...Was that using an accurate speedo? If so...impressive...
  6. Ron...Yeah 102 on a Stinko...I agree with your assessment...
  7. C'mon there must be some deep pockets, big H.P. guys out there...
  8. Bubba...If you got enough H.P. to pull that combo...You're gonna be flying...
  9. That's about 98 to 99 actual...
  10. I doubt you got to 112 with a 3x3 and an rs4 (unless you were looking at a OEM speedo and had a 40mph wind to your back)... The "point" is to see what a DRZ can "pull to" top speed before running out of steam...Why else would you bother to do H.P. mods? To do wheelies...You don't need any mods to do those..The whole point to doing mods is to increase performance...And increasing your H.P. doesn't improve cornering..Suspension mods can improve that somewhat as well as better tires of course...
  11. Yeah...Typo...Meant Hot Cams...Anyway there was Stage 1 and 2 Hotcams back then..
  12. I'm out of touch with what Hot Rods is calling their stuff now...However that's what they called their cams back then...Two types...Stage 1 and Stage 2... Stage 2 was the more agressive but they had already discontinued them by 2007 (You could only find leftover stock)..I got a deal on the Stage 1 cams new from a guy on Ebay so that's why I went with those...
  13. Yep..Absolutely...To get an accurate (pretty accurate speedo)...You need to measure the rolling distance for the wheel and then use the formula that Trailtech has to input the setup number...Then to really get it really accurate you can tweak it comparing it to a GPS (Or if ya have a buddy who's a cop get him to radar you)...You could do it with the OEM speedo if someone put a radar gun on you and told you the top speed and you compared that to what you read on the OEM then you would know your correction factor but even then it varies by the faster you go...
  14. 107Mph on the OEM speedo is about 101Mph actual...
