    clark tank, reserve

    Thanks Josh, thats better then I thought.Nice to know if you really get in a bind you can lay her on the side and 10-15 more miles.

    clark tank, reserve

    Got my clark 3.9 on.Its awsome and the 160 -180 miles before hitting reserve is great.Does anyone know how much the 3.9 has in reserve or how mant miles can you run on reserve? Thanks a bunch.

    handlebar vibration 2009

    I just installed a set on my 08 DRZ400S. I have pro taper bars with acerbis bark busters. They work great on my bike.Good enough to the point that when I was trying them out the first time I forgot all about testing them because of the great job they did. On my second test run I ran the bike up to 80mph and thats where they really shine,As I slowed down to a legal speed I started to feel some vibes but not anywhere near stock.So thats my story.Now I just have to wait for the BMWGS1200 version.

    MRD install problem drz 400s

    Im going to see if i can finish it 2nite.Im going to try the rubber mallet,hoping that will do it.Once everything is tight n ready to go does the pipe contact the subframe at all ?? Thx.

    MRD install problem drz 400s

    DR367,great advice. Did losen the one side and got it in.Now its just a matter of getting head bolts to match up.The inside one female does not seem to be able to make it all the way.Iv got an 2008 so dont know if they changed anything.Seems like a nut on the engine mount bracket may need a little filing down. Anyway enough for 2 nite,ill get to it again next year Many thanks to all for tips n stuff.

    BMW G 650 X challenge, just got one!

    I have one and let me tell ya the thing is a blast on the street.I used to have a drz400 and it was good also but the xchal has way more power better handling .Its very good as a comuter or just havin fun.It likes curvy roads also.A sure grin ear to ear. Best of luck.

    Exc 530

    Hi folks,im thinking of buying a 08 ktm 530 exc. I love everything about the bike,but a few ppl are telling me its maint intensive.Like every 20 or 30 hours doing a valve job and stuff. So is this bs or is it really like that?Thanks.
