    Engine teardown

    I'm in the process of removing the engine. The decompression thing on the cam exploded and the cam chain broke. Once I start disassembling the engine and split the case I'll know the extent of the damage. My question is, since I will have it all apart should I replace the valves and piston if they're not damaged? I've read stock valves aren't of the best quality. The engine has less than 10,000 miles on it. Just trying to make the best decision about rebuilding it to avoid problems down the road.

    Drz400sm radiator problems please help

    How far is your commute? Definitely a crappy scenario. If you have no other options, and it's a short commute, and you were to baby it while riding, I think you would be ok. Scary thought though. Take my opinion with a grain of salt. Hopefully a guru will respond to you soon.

    Hotcam exploded

    So do you think I experienced this because of shoddy workmanship on Hotcams behalf?

    Hotcam exploded

    I took a little break from riding. Got the bike out. It sounded like it was making that cam clicking noise (I have hearing loss and the MRD doesn't help matters). I was working towards a side street to tinker with it and it just died. No hardcore, gruesome, clunking/clanging. I figured I jumped the timing. Nope. The exhaust Hotcam exploded and cam chain snapped (intake cam looks fine). So I'm pulling the motor to have the case split and really assess the damage. I'm assuming it was my fault with the MCCT coming loose. Anyone ever hear of hotcams disintegrating?

    How loud is the MRD Z-PRO?

    How loud? If a Banshee and a Mountain Lion had wild sex, the MRD would still be louder. It has a nice growl to it. I was slightly worried about cops. I rode through an affluent area (lawyers and doctors) and passed two cops. I was preparing to be hassled. They paid no attention to me; that being said, I made it a point to shift 1-2 gears higher than need be and didn't dare crack the throttle. Just buy it! Then thank us later

    I knew it was going to be loud, but I was pleasantly surprised! It has fierce, deep growl The past few days women have been throwing their panties at me and trying to rip me off the DRZ. I might just have to put the stock exhaust on at this rate.

    Mrd still hasn't arrived

    It takes a while man. There's a big backorder, then it has to ship from CA. It's worth the wait

    who has a 2015 ?

    I dislike the front fender(looks like Acerbis). That's just me though. Other than that, she's beautiful
