    buying this bar for the DRZ - recommendations?

    https://www.protaper.com/product/34/evo-adventure-handlebars Protaper adv bars 3.5" rise, very comfy bars and stock cables work if you don't change risers

    So back to the original question- Athena piston replacement every 15 hours?? Is this true?

    You can loosen it up and move it farther inboard on the splines

    I was kinda thinking the same thing.. last non O ring chain I had caused some major issues on a multi state tour. Would never get another non O ring chain..

    Probably last ride in the Cascade foothills of 2018, getting too much compact snow/ice on the forest roads at higher elevation. Good cold dirty fun!

    Tool Kit

    If I'm going more than a days ride from home then yes
  11. I don't see why it wouldn't bolt right on without it

    Tool Kit

    A master link is not a bad idea, small, cheap just in case.
  13. It's not comfortable at all doing high rpm freeway riding on this bike imo. As others have said DR or KLR is what you want if freeways are a necessity. I don't even really like busy 55 MPH roads because most traffic is going 70. Feels much better around 55-60.
  14. If you stay off the freeway, keep up maintenance, oil at least every 3k, air filters, valve check maybe every 10k, and don't beat it too hard I don't see why you wouldn't expect 50k without any major problems. I think people abuse and neglect these bikes giving them a reputation of poor longevity. Mine has almost 11k, still low miles.

    Can anyone help me identify these two parts?

    Those are S model forks, the SM forks are inverted. Yeah it's way different than a crotch rocket but it's a great bike, much funner imo
