    Best deal on SM wheels/tires.

    What all is required to adapt sport bike wheels? Enlarging hub where axle goes through?
  2. Hello, I'm working on converting my K model to be street legal. My plan is to just put on SM wheels and tires so I can keep my knobbies for off road. I've looked at Themoto.store, and a couple of other places, but really want the wheels and tires already mounted and balanced and ready to bolt onto the bike. Thanks in advance. Wes

    Texas Newb East Texas.

    Hello everyone. I'm in Tyler. I have been riding since I was 13 (first bike was a dr350) but haven't had a bike in 10 years, so I'm having to get my legs back under me. I have a 2000 Drz400 model that is being made to ride on the street. I got it from a friend who rides a KTM in Lewisville and is apart of the DFW Sumo group. I'm not sure how much I'll get to ride on the weekends as they are usually pretty busy with dirt track racing. I help run the Elite Non Wing Sprint group that travels around North/East Texas and once a year in Greenwood La. I also plan on getting back into a stock car as I ran one a few years ago with no success. Thanks for reading Wes

    How about a little sprint car racing. That's me standing behind the SWAT firearms car.
  6. Thank you very much for your answers. Probably going to take me a while to learn about this bike. I haven't had one in 10 years, and that was an old 92 Dr 350. Wes
  7. So I have an 00 Kicker model with the FCR 39 Carb. The friend I got the bike from (who has a KTM with an FCR 39 as well) is unsure of the purpose of the "hotshot" injection (the blue button like the choke). Can I get a little insight. I have only pulled it out while idling and noticed that the rpm increase. Is this more for when riding hard/racing to add fuel and give more power, or could it possibly be to help start the bike by adding fuel along with the choke? Sorry if this has been covered before. Thanks Wes "The Big Texan"

    DRZ pics, lets see your Z

    I've been riding since the age of 13 (now 33), just the first time I've had a bike in over 10 years. In which time my hobby became my wife and family until the last 5 years where I have began dirt track racing. I help run a sprint car group here in Texas as an official. I also spent one year racing in a stock car class, and will soon begin doing that again hopefully this upcoming season. I have noticed that my plans for my money is changing from the race car to the bike though lol.

    Need stiffer rear spring.

    Hello, Thanks in advance for the help. I recently acquired a 00 DRZ400 (kicker model). I know I'm heavier than the suspension is setup for (I'm 6'1" @ 310# Texan). Anyone changed the rear spring? I was told I need a 6.5-6.8 on the Facebook Group drz400 owners. I have no clue what brand to look for or even where to start looking (outside of amazon or ebay). Any help is much appreciated. Wes

    Newbie. 00 kicker. Full yoshi exhaust, SM front fender, geared for highway. About half way street legal so I'm going to be finishing that soon.
