    fork respring question.

    OK, thanks for the reply, is it gonna hurt anything by not having those washers in? They are the s model right side up showas 49mm forks. If I have to I'll pull em back a part.

    fork respring question.

    So today I replaced my fork seals and fork oil, and completed a respring with racetech springs from the TT shop. I did one side at a time and when I was on the second one, I realized that the new fork springs were about 1/4" shorter than the original. I figured it was probably due to them being stiffer and went ahead and finished. I came inside and found a bag of 6 washers in the box that the springs came in, and I started to wonder if I was supposed to use them as spacers or something. So, do I need to take them apart again? And also, the "smaller" side of the spring goes down right?

    Gearing Recommendation for DRZ SM

    I'm using 15/44 on my converted S. I really like it, torque moster with just a jet kit, 3x3 and MRDSSW. I have thought about dropping to 15/40 though just to make the occasional highway I do a little more bearable, but who wants to ride highway on a dr anyway, LOL!

    What did you do to your DRZ today?

    Washed her, changed the oil, cleaned n relubed the chain. Then i cranked a 3rd gear wheelie all the way up the hill to get the oil flowin'

    Wheelie discussion

    Do it if you've been thinking about it. They are a lot more fun than you may think. I picked one up last fall a lot cheaper, but it didn't have any of those goodies. It came with the stock motor with 88cc bigbore but the case had a big hole in it. It also came with a brand new never run lifan 125 engine. I only paid $250 but the bikes pretty rough, and I didn't care because I like playing around with em

    Edit: dunno where that quote came from That sounds pretty good to me, as long as it runs OK. Is it just a 50cc tho? No big bore or anything?

    Wheelie discussion

    Honestly, I would probably say skip practicing in 1st gear. It makes bad habits because the bike is way too snappy in first. Its almost going over, or taking a dive back to the ground when your on and off the throttle. Just keep practicing your clutch ups in second. You'll start to get a feel for it and get much more comfortable. My wheelies sucked until I learned 2nd and 3rd gear is where I wanted to be. Now its pretty much always 3rd gear clutch ups because its so smooth and easy to keep up.

    Cleaning up my MRD/SSW

    Yeah, that's kind of what I thought, it looked so good when it was new, nice golden hue with some bluing in the welds. Oh well haha

    Cleaning up my MRD/SSW

    How would you go about cleaning up the med to make it look newish. Mine has gone to a nearly bronze color, and I'd like to try and bring the stainless look back. Would you just use a metal polish...... Or??????
