  1. I check it about every three rides my rides consist of 5 hours sometimes
  2. I appreciate all the feed back guys thank you !
  3. I broke her in hard a know a few guys who race and work on bikes and they said not to baby it when breaking it in
  4. When I drain the oil it’s exactly a half quart low , I change my oil ever 1000 miles I spoke to someone at the dealership and apparently it’s normal for long rides at highway speeds it apparently mists oil back into air box?
  5. So I have a 2017 drz400s only 3k miles on it and it burns like half a qt of oil every oil change ..... I don’t have any blue smoke or anything ... someone told me if you run the bike at highway speeds 80+ often ( which I do ) it will burn oil ... is this true and normal ?

    Aftermarket drz400s shock recommendations ?

    Because at the moment I have my suspension set up super firm almost compressed all the way down due to me being 250 I’m sure this is bad for the spring putting all that pressure on it

    Aftermarket drz400s shock recommendations ?

    So let me get this correct , you are saying just to leave the stock shock in there although I am above the specified weight of the stock shock ?

    Aftermarket drz400s shock recommendations ?

    Mostly dirt , heavy woops .... I’m 250 lbs the stock spring is only made for a 180 lb guy as I’m sure you no I never did aftermarket shocks should I rebuild or get a new one more specific for my weight ?
  12. Hey all , looking to get a more heavy duty aftermarket rear shock for my weight lol anyone recommend some different brands ?? Also any one changed theirs already ?

    After oil change missing half quart ?

    They do .... its just odd for that much oil to go missing regardless of weight ... this was the first oil change draining the full synth not sure how this can happen I mean that’s a lot of oil to burn

    Yes ... it never happened until this third oil change like I said I have been ripping it at like 90 for long periods of time for the first time ever not sure if that has something to do with it
