    Got the deal of the day yesterday...2018 DRZ400SM

    I'll go out to the garage a little later to check, but I'm sure my tailight assembly is still sitting on the shelf!

    Dirt Biking Chat Room for Gals Only

    Having a fall like that can be eye opening... I've had some experiences that scared the crap out of me. Time and distance helps, but one thing I did was to to a track day to work on skills in a controlled environment. I know it's a huge difference between street and dirt!! I have a weekend scheduled in the spring at another school in California to master my dirt skills and apply them to supermoto riding also Okay ladies... if it was between Honda and Yamaha... which one would you choose? I'm leaving KTM out as the issues and maintenance on it scare me! I guess probably a 125 to start and work up to a 250? I like Megan Griffin YouTube posts... she's got a lot of skills and all it takes is practice, practice, practice !!!

    Hi ladies... I've been riding a Suzuki DRZ400SM bike for a few years now here in the city, and I realize that this isn't the place for me anymore!!! I'm looking at property out of state and wayyyyyyy out of the city and want enough land for a small flat track course in the back. My question is that I want a 2 stroke bike but am clueless on what I should be looking for. What do you all ride and what size cc is it. Height doesn't matter, I have long legs !!! TIA

    Downshift technique

    Go when it's cooler... you'll die out there in the heat! I went in December last year and am looking at another asphalt only class before the year ends! You'll get so much ride time you won't be able to drive home because you are so sore !!!

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    The black cylinder is the charcoal vapor recovery for the emission system, most people do just take it off and throw it in a box... not sure about the fork lock...

    ... and still another jetting question

    Okay... just got done rejettting with this setup. If everyone would forgive me for my ignorance, how do I use the fuel screw to tune it? I ran the bike in the garage and it idled correctly, but I was going for a ride in a few minutes and wanted to know. My last setup with the 160 and EMN was way too rich (thank you 30x26) and I was getting about 20 mpg...!!

    ... and please do it at the track, we have So Cal Supermoto here where you can practice your cornering skills all day long with an instructor for a lot less than an air ambulance flight out of the mountains will cost you !!!

    ... and still another jetting question

    Thanks to all... put on high clearance choke assembly and it worked perfectly! I have completely destroyed my fuel economy but the smile points were worth it. I just have a quick question... I was riding up to 5,400' and the bike was sputtering at the top end of 4th gear? Should I just drain the float bowl and add a little carb cleaner? I was also running some 100 octane fuel in it, was that the source?

    FCR39 Slant revving up

    No worries, my bad ... I just know how much work went into installing my new FCR and how much I had to tweak it !!!

    FCR39 Slant revving up

    Your throttle cables are getting compressed and impacting idle !!! Tweak your carb to alleviate the high idle!!!
