  1. I enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing all that. Great pictures, great adventure.
  2. Alright! Now I can stop my hunger strike. Wait . . . I did tell you all about my hunger strike, right?
  3. Nice top hear about this. Are you running 87 octane?
  4. The technology (described as they use it in their shocks) is described on the Ricor website here: http://store.ricorshocks.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=19. I still don't know exactly how it works, though.
  5. I checked out the Ricor website. These fork valves are supposed to have the versatility of being stiff for chassis input and soft for wheel input. It sounds neat. But if you get that up front, what about your rear shock? They don't sell rear shocks, and I'm wondering about the benefits of stiff/soft versatility if the rear shock can't offer the same thing.
  6. Why would you have to use the stock springs, as opposed to aftermarket ones? If it really is true, then what weight of rider and gear would this set-up be ideal for?
  7. Man I want to see dyno numbers on on some of the available mods to the DR650: high-comp. piston, 670 kit, 700 kit, some in conjunction with web cam.
  8. You just put a tiny bit of oil in the spark plug hole, right?
  9. Oh, but I have a 1991 DR350S, which has a different carb. Does the pumper carb need a vacuum line hooked up (I'm guessing not)?
  10. "Just discovered a petc*** that can be used to replace the stock petc***. It is a Yamaha 660 Raptor (2001-2004)." http://www.maximum-suzuki.com/forums/index.php/topic,63517.0.html. I have one from a WR400 on mine, which others have done as well (no vacuum line).
  11. Yah, compression release? Valve adjustment? But I don't see that giving you no compression suddenly.
  12. I'd love to see dyno numbers. I think Eddie said pods rob you of horsepower, typically (not the case on properly tuned FZ1s, I know). Maybe that's because people often make the intake too short?
  13. Sorry about the setback.
  14. That's damn nice. It's way better than the rusty ones I'm used to seeing. Your bling factor just went up.
  15. I'm not sure about this place, but they have a variety of CL-15 helmets for as low as $74.99: http://www.extremesupply.com/hjchelmets/hjchelmetscl15.htm Of course, shipping is free for orders over $100 (but maybe you could order an extra shield or something?).
