    Completed S to E Gasket MOD!!!!

    I dont really care about the numbers, but I can definetly feel the difference. Other then that,.. I think its a great mod just becuase you get to tear apart your engine and have a blast doing it. It's an awesome learning experiance! And also, there's nothing like sitting in your garage(actually my brother's), drinking a few beers and working on your bike.

    E Base Gasket and Rings

    I read a few posts on installing the base e gasket on my 04 S model. Is it really necessory to install new piston rings to to do this mod? Also,. which would be better, the OEM E base gasket or the after market Cometic gasket? Thanks, Dave

    Anyone use the Michelin Desert tire?

    actually, I started her up and attempted to go for a ride,.. I was fish tailing and the rear wasn't grabing. Obviously I didn't make it very far.

    Anyone use the Michelin Desert tire?

    I just put a rear baja on. I tested it out last Saturday morning in the clay and sand pits near by. Had a blast and the tire griped up very well,.. I would say better the the dunlop 606. Unfortunely, my now ex-girlfriend thought it would be a good Idea to slash it Saturday night after a little spat we had.

  15. Ok, so last week I took my cylinder head cover off to measure my tappet clearence. Every thing was within spec and good to go. Well, quickly glanceing over my manual, I missed the part where it says to only put black RTV on the cylinder head gasket near the cam sprokets and I proceded to put a thick strip all around the entire gasket. Luckly I caught my mistake before I fired her up. So today I go to remove the extra RTV from the cylinder head cover and find that it's a complete mess all around it . So I go and try to remove this strip and it pulls the gasket right off of the cover and tears it inhalf. The worst part is, a small chunk of the RTV droped inside of the cylinder head! So, what are my options here? Do I have to go remove the entire engine and fish this chunk out.,, or can I leave the engine on the bike and do this? Dave

  19. Anyone try this? I live in a two story apartment complex with no elevator, just a set of steep stairs leading to my flat. I hate having to wait till the weekend to do work on my bike, so I was thinking I might be able to push it up the stairs on a plank of wood. I know it sounds rediclious, but if its doable, why not!

    What to do about winter?

    Hey guys, I live on the top floor of an apartment and I have to keep my bike in the parking lot. Should I worry about keeping her out in the elements this winter? I live in central Jersey and our winters aren't that bad except for a few storms here and there. I also want to take her out for a few spins in the snow. Anyone else have this kind of arangement? Dave

    Don't underestimate the power of the DRZ!!

    OH man, that brings tears to my eyes!! I hope she has a speedy recovery!
  23. retting is so easy. It just takes time and patience. follow the directions from the drzinfo site and do some searches on this forum. and definitly do the 3x3 mod. When I got my full SS yosh, I rejetted and did the 3x3 in one shot and it woke the bike right up.

  25. It could be a twisted fork. I had that problem. what I did was loosen the lower triple clamp bolts and pop a few hard wheelies. Straightend them right up.
