    Wrenching on this bike is wearing me out

    go to sears and buy a "breaker bar" in 3/8. if you are trying to expand your collection of tools get an air wrench. simple as that

    Top speed

    ok look: to answer your question because eveyone is going to tell you different, i'm a mechanic, and the simple answer is the more you spin your engine the more wear you are going to get. That bike was technically never meant to go over 55. thats why when you ride right around 55 mph with normal gearing it feels great. feels even better if you have lowered your rear sprocket teeth. regardless, its totally fine to pass people or mess around with your buddies and pass them at 80-90 mph for short periods. but i'm telling you from experience that if you ride up here all the time you are going to have issues sooner and more frequent than people that dont. happy trails

    Loose chain caused this?

    Just a heads up but 36 psi is waaaaaaaaaaay to high. Running a street tire you should be running between 22-28 psi depending on your riding style and tire wear.

    Drz400sm speedo lug in front or behind?

    Thanks everyone for the responses. I did take off the front wheel and see if it would fit on the back of the lug but it just didn't like being twisted all the way around w the cable and the fork leg protector so I just put it back. When its torqued it doesn't move you're right. Thanks again
  7. Subject kinda says it but does the speed lug go in front of the fork leg knob or behind it. Mine is in front and I feel that is wrong due to the wheel wanting to spin forward. Any help is appreciated.
