    OMG - That's hilarious ! Can anyone really be that stupid ??? [emoji23][emoji1787][emoji23]

    Oil box repair...Will it work?

    Looks more like an improvement than just a temp fix - I would use epoxy rather than silicone and keep it like that [emoji16]

    DRZ400S Timing Question

    How about impact on performance or fuel consumption ?

    DRZ400S Timing Question

    Tippex Marks on the Flywheel - Probably from the PO. Haven't checked the cam chain that closely but I don't think it's corrosion. I hope not anyway 😬

    DRZ400S Timing Question

    Thanks for that. The bike only shows 12K Miles on it but it looks as if it's done a lot more. I forgot to mention that it already has the MCCT installed but I noticed it was adjusted way too tight. Probably that in itself has worn the chain ??? As far as performance is concerned the bike starts/idles/runs fine but severely lacks top end power. It has a Pro Circuit T4 but no idea of the jetting just yet. I thought to check timing and valves first and then continue with the carb. It seems it was a good idea after all. Any other thoughts and/or suggestions before I start shopping around for a new chain would be great [emoji16].

    DRZ400S Timing Question

    Hey Guys, I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?

    08 WR250f Bogs when throttle is punched

    I know it's an old thread but... Knobbysidedown, what happened in the end ? Was your problem completely resolved ? I have an '08 sitting in my garage that has the same problem - It belongs to a friend who uses the bike on tarmac quite a bit where the bog is much more annoying so I am trying to help him tune it a bit.
