    06 CRF250R Converting to a Woods Trails Bike

    Thanks - Def having the susp softened up a bit - it was set for mx racing for my weight of 270lbs so it is really stiff - Riding in the woods on it as is -- really makes the hands, wrists, arms and shoulders sore.. will check out flatland..
  2. Hey Everybody, Was looking to take my 06 and turn it into a trails lugger - Mods advice would be much appreciated. Gearing? Suspension? Is this even a good idea? Should I try with another bike? Thanks -- Currently setup with a motocross race susp.. jimmy button bars .. coolant recovery system...and extra wide foot pegs...

    Baja Kit Installed Today..

    Had a local dealership install the Baja Kit on on my E ...kit was on b/o for six weeks (lens shortage for blinkers ) - they installed it and inspected it...got my paperwork and one hour later had the lic. plate on the back of the bike...now for some Pirelli Scorpion tires!

    Is the Speedo accurate on your DRZ?

    check out www.speedohealer.com - I use one on my R1 and it's very accurate - most all bikes have a good size margin of error..

  11. Tried riding my wife's DR200SE on the trails at Sam Houston National Forest Today..lots of sand especially in the corners - probably came off bike 7-9 times from front end washing out...the trail is tight (very narrow)...any techniques for this type of riding would be appreciated...

    E Owners in the Houston Texas Area?

    I know that doesn't make it right...but these guys are pretty up tight and live to obey the rules..engineers (i think) -- They spend 4 hours riding and 8 hours cleaning their bikes...it would not make sense for them to break the law...at all..

    E Owners in the Houston Texas Area?

    There a few guys that have bmw type dual sports that ride them reg... never asked them if they were supposed to or not...noticed some signs saying no motorized vehicles but they usually have the gate closed to those roads anyway...
