  1. Hope you're not down there tonight, we're expecting rain.
  2. You have to check the cable routing to see if there is anything that would cause binding, like a too sharp bend or something else.
  3. Only thing even close to that is the cushions that hold down the gas tank on my s model.
  4. And watch where you're stopping to be sure you don't try to put your foot down in a pot hole or a low spot in the road.
  5. Change the main jet, it'll run better at elevation. It's not that hard to do, and do the 3x3 mod while you're at it. In the past when I did week long trips for riding I found it was good to have a spare cleaned and oiled air filter or two, especially when riding in dusty conditions. But my buddy didn't rejet or change his air filter and did all the same rides, so I guess the important part is just getting out and riding.
  6. probably not too bad if you're a machinist. if it can be done for a honda grom, it can be done for the drz. https://www.50stunt.com/HONDA_GROM_MSX125_LEFT_HAND_DUAL_CALIPER_HANDBRAKE_p/mmst-msxdcb13.htm
  7. that's the accelerator pump. sounds like the diaphragm may have a tear and is letting gas through. my fcr doesn't have that fitting, maybe an overflow?
  8. Looks like you bolted the motor to a 3x6 (?). Is that pretty stable for working on the motor?
  9. You could buy Hot Cams, easier to find. https://thumpertalk.com/shop/DRZ-Engine-Transmission-c4905/
  10. Yes, you're right. It's a used head I bought and put on the shelf. Now I look more closely and see that there's a broken bolt in the head from one of the journals. Hopefully it can be removed easily and there's no other damage.
  11. Titanium
  12. I have an extra cylinder head that I want to ship to a shop and I wonder what I should take off before shipping. I won't send cams and I assume I'd remove the cam caps. What about the buckets and shims, do you remove them?
  13. Info on the welch plug:
  14. should have shot himself first
  15. Looks like a great place to ride, and no dust!!
