    Where to get rear/passenger foot pegs

    That is SUPER helpful! Thanks!

    Passenger pegs

    Hey guys, same situation here. Have you found a solution that you can pass along? I'll check the Wal-Mart pegs in the meantime. Sounds good but I don't know how it attaches.

    WR200 project

    Manual: http://mybikemanuals.com/yamaha/yamaha-wr-owners-manuals/
  4. King Ridge Road, about five miles north of Cazadero there is a gnarly, sleeper hazard that took me down hard and fast. The hazard is on an uphill stretch, just before a cattle guard road feature. It is a powder-soft berm in the middle of the road that is extremely hard to spot on the pock-marked road. My front wheel hit the soft, uneven portion that is about three feet long, and I had zero time to correct. The way my wheel was slightly turned to the left, I high-sided right side and tumbled about thirty feet. Let me know if I can help you pinpoint this area as there are quite a few challenges along this route.

    Any DRZ400S suspension adjustment guides?

    Or . . . either take it to a mechanic, or lower your expectations for others to do the research for you. That's what I'm talking about. Do I really need to say, "Now open the drawer of your tool chest and remove a flat head screwdriver"?

    I love how people talk (and talk) themselves out of taking initiative. If information isn't for their specific bike, including year and color, they throw in the towell. If it isn't all in one post, they belly-ache and give up. If it doesn't follow their preconceived idea of procedural processes, they become immovable desktop warriors, frozen in fear. It takes a certain amount of doing outside of one's expectations (your comfort zone) perfected to suit their specific set of circumstances. I had a guy pull this on me and at 3/4 of the way to completion, he asked me to finish up the whole thing up for him. This, after taking the time (iniative) to explain what I was doing so as to alleviate some of his unmistakable reluctance to get shit done. So, his helplessness was either laziness, manipulation, or just incompetence. I left him with 1/4 of the work to complete, on principle, and he never got it done to this day. On top of that, he's a cheapskate and won't even pay to get it done. He may have a mama's boy approach, but I'm not his mama. The man-child was probably even offended, as I think about it now. We don't hang out much any more.

    That's the third time I've heard similar in the past few days. Thanks for that.

    In response to 38super: I can totally make that work. That looks amazing. I'm looking at their schedule now. Thanks.

    Wow, this stuff looks even better. The concentration is insane: 32 oz. to 512 gallons! I can hear myself telling wifey, "I need to get through these 512 gallons . . . for research purposes. Bye!" Thanks!
