    Suzuki DR-Z400E (2004)


    Once you've made all the necessary modifications (see http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/215-drz400-faq/), other than its weight, I love everything about this bike. Super dependable and fun to ride.

    2000 Klx300r problem

    Just bought a KLX300r and had exact same problem. Carb was filthy. Soaked over night, now works fine.

    Plate numbers for a TTR90

    Looks like 4" numbers are too tall for those tiny TTR90 number plates. Are there 3.5" somewhere? If not, where's a good place to get numbers for the TTR90?

    Newbie (to TTR90) - Raising height

    Been riding for years, but just got a TTR90 for my son. He'll need a taller seat, so I am looking at a tall seat, but also saw these items on e-bay: X-tender and SHOCK With 4" LIFT KIT Are they rip off's or other legit ways to lift the TTR90?

    Anyone tried the "tugger" on their DRZ?

    Yeah, I lift on the subframe too, but that strap looks easier on the hands after a long ride... I'll try one and post my thoughts after a few rides.
  7. Anyone used the "tugger on their DRZ? Does it bolt to the seat bolts? If yes, any problems with the bolts holding up as you lift the bike using the strap? The tugger.
  8. Here's mine when it was relatively new with stock exhaust: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-1309325242972927703&hl=en And here's what it is now, with a Bill's Pipe installed (which I really enjoy): http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5568593583468227762&hl=en

    DRZ 400 E Gearing - What sprockets???

    I agree. That's my set up and the power is very noticeable, especially on my first drop of the clutch and the front went airborne:thumbsup:
  10. OK, I sent my personalized letters off to my Senators, Congresswoman and state officials. Here's Senator Feinstein's response to my OHV land use plea for help. Thrilled to know she cares about my issue! Dear Mr. Sears: Thank you for writing to me to express your opposition to the practice of horse slaughter for human consumption. I appreciate hearing from you and welcome the opportunity to respond. Like you, I believe this practice is wrong, and was pleased when Californians passed a state initiative prohibiting it in 1998. As you may know, I was a cosponsor of an amendment which aimed to stop this practice by withholding funds for U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) inspections under the Federal Meat Inspection Act. I, along with several colleagues, sent a letter to the USDA urging the agency to stop these inspections and effectively end this practice. Unfortunately, the USDA has ruled that horse slaughterhouses may continue operation under a fee-based inspection process to abide by the Federal Meat Inspection Act. I have also cosponsored the "Virgie S. Arden American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act" (S. 311), which would effectively end horse slaughter for human consumption in the United States. This bill has been referred to the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, of which I am not a member. Please know that I will work with my colleagues to ensure passage of this bill. Again, thank you for writing to me about this issue. I hope you will continue to keep in touch on matters of importance to you. If you have any additional comments or questions, please feel free to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3841. Sincerely yours, Dianne Feinstein United States Senator Further information about my position on issues of concern to California and the Nation are available at my website http://feinstein.senate.gov/public/.

  11. Bryan, It's a great idea. I wish the motorcycle magazines and more importantly the AMA (although Dingman is changing the AMA for just this reason) should support an effort like this. What about some of us posting sample letters that we can start with? I think it's important to specifically cite active legislation or a current process (like the National Forest trail designation fiasco) that our representatives can act on now.

    ? for those who have removed the front fork boot

    I use these too. No problems thus far and they look so much better than the booties.

    Bike lift for 400S

    It's been holding mine for years. Never had a problem with it. Looks great and built to last.
