  1. I just picked up a new 5 gal can of U4. First thing I noticed is it wasn't stinking up my garage as the U4 I had used in the past. Second thing I noticed was when I got some on my hand it was sticky as it dried. This was after the tank was filled. So I did an experiment, I poured some U4 in a jar lid and some pump gas in another, just enough so they would evaporate in a hour. The evaporated U4 was sticky (varnish) and would leave a clear fingerprint, the pump gas left no residue. So I drained the tank and flushed it with pump gas, and now I'm pissed. Did I get an old can of fuel or what? What is the shelf life? It had a date stamped on the side of USA/4121/05/2007. Is this the use by date or the "born on date"? What is 4121? I have used this fuel before with great results and know how to handle it and drain tank/carb after use to prevent the residue from forming. Seems like this can was bad from the start? Thoughts?

    Drz110 vs Rm65?

    RM65 will MURDER a KLX110 rider being equal. RM65 - 13 hp, real brakes, real suspension, real race bike geometry, 125 lbs......... KLX110 - 6 hp, drum brakes, no suspension, slow steering, 145 lbs........ That being said we traded the RM65 for a KLX110 and couldn't be happier!

    DRZ 110 Suspension Question

    We run 1 heavy 1 stock spring and it works wonderful, this is common with damping rod forks.

    Crower Power vs Trailbikes Cam

    I run that cam and in a 88 it is a torque monster. I ran the TB cam stock bore and it ran well also. I think that the .224 spec Crower cam would be good for low end and mid where the TB cam is more mid to top.

    DR-Z/KLX 110 12 inch front rims???

    A KX/RM 60 rear rim is a steel $55 32 hole 12" rim that will lace up to your stock 110 hub. You will need spokes, as above contact Buchannans. Order the rim from www.bikebandit.com or your Kawi / Suzuki dealer.
