  1. i went to the dealer to get a new filter for my 06 and they didnt have a listing for it, but the guy called Suzuki and found out its the same as the 05's, so the Scotts should work.
  2. i find myself torn on what to do! I used to use it too after i washed my bike to get the excess water out of the chain. I have heard that it dries out rubber(which it may, hence the name(water displacement 40 uses(WD40), but I just want my chain to free up. I have had all my bikes where the rear wheels spins just like wheel of fortune, but not this one, I just dont know if I havent broken in the chain or not. i know chains are a high wear item and maybe I shouldn't pit too much thought in this, but it's driving me nuts.
  3. hey guys, i just got an 06 rmz 450, and i noticed that the rear wheel doesnt spin nearly as freely as my old kx 250, the owners manual says to clean the chain with only kerosene, which I plan to do, and to lubricate with a heavy motor oil. I have been using Maxima Crystal Clear chain lube on it, but the chain still seems kinda tight, not tension tight because it has at least over 1 1/2" of slack, and the bike has at least over 1 hour on it. i was thinking of spraying some WD40 on it to see if it free's it up, but i dont want to damage the orings. Is this normal? I have never had an oring chain before, so i dont know if it just takes a while to loosen up and break in. Any suggestions?
  4. which antifreeze do you think is better, maximas coolanol, or engine ice?
  5. somebody hurry up and answer this! I have an 06 coming in next week and need to know too
  6. that was a cool article! it sounds kinda scary but makes sense too.
