    RR - WA to AK on an XR650L

    What was the problem with keeping lens in Wolfman Expedition (it looks like)Tankbag? I almost bought one of those yesterday.

    Hey, what was that music on the video? from: ~Old Fart trying to catch up on the music world~ PS: I spent 2 months up there last summer riding the Haul Road, Top of the World, Dempster, a piece of the Canoil, Cassier, etc. Enjoy.

    DRZ 125 Clutch

    UPDATE: Answered my own question. There is none. There is no lower adjustment, only cable adjustment.

    DRZ 125 Clutch

    This question really applies to a '94 GN 125, but it's the same engine. Where is the clutch release adjusting screw, or is there none? NOT the cable adjustment, but the clutch adjustment. Cable is adjusted with 1/8 inch play in the lever. Play is also in the lever at the engine housing. Clutch does not engage untill lever is almost all the way back out, no slippage. About 7,000 miles on bike.

    DRZ Fork Springs

    drzrobbcanuch, thanks. I will try these things. I did have the tire pressure dropped, but now I understand the suspension set up a bit better, eh? So the factory installed fork oil is 5W, or are you telling me to replace it with 5W? Thanks again. ~poppa...~

    DRZ Fork Springs

    Cactusone, all those things have been recently done/checked. Sag is not too much, even at the softest setting. I think Suzuki "sprung" the thing for a 200 pounder to ride at Moto-X pace. Does anyone know what weight fork oil is used? I probably have lighter weight fork oils on the shelf. Or is it a sealed cartridge. Why won't Suzuki publish these things? Where's Suzuki tech support? I can't find anything on their Web Site. ~poppawheelie~

    "rock hard and jumps around/deflects off of obstacles at slower speeds" is good analysis. I'm dissapointed in the bike for this reason. Didn't expect it after the E model was suspended just perfect for me. I've put $400 into adding kick start, and added Scott protapper bars and steering damper too.

    Sean, I weigh 170. Rear spring preload is screwed all the way out. 07400E, I hadn't thought about revalve. Who does this kind of work? ~poppawheelie~

    Thanks for all the answers. I may go with a CeeBailey and try to fit Dzus fastners for quick on/off. ~poppawheelie~

    DRZ Fork Springs

    I have a new 2007 DRZ 400S which beats me to death riding at lower speeds over rough trails, even with compression & rebound damping set at it's softest. I had a 2000 400E which worked perfectly on the same trails. Did Suzuki change the fork springs or other parts from 2000 to 2007? Any solution? ~Poppawheelie~

    wind blast

    Just got a new DRZ 400, and can't believe how the front number plate/ fax flyscreen dumps the wind right in my face. Does anyone sell a bolt on screen, or does anyone have another solution? ~R~

    Decel Valve-IMPORTANT

    I wanted to remove it, but what is the "air jet," where is it, and what size is needed? What about running a hose between the 2 nipples that would have the same affect as the valve always being open. Thanks for your info. I've been riding and wrenching for 42 years, but these new carburators baffle me.

    Yes, the diaphragm and spring were there, but there is no gasket aroung the pin hole vacuum passage, which goes to the diaphragm chamber,and that's where it was leaking. ~R~
