  1. Well, I finally did it, I sold my DRZ. I bought a brand new 2004 DRZ400S in 2005. With plenty of help from this forum I spent a boatload of money on the girl. At one point I had it setup for both dirt and street (SM). I added plenty of Mods over the years including E Cams, E Pipe, E base gasket, Case Savers, Scotts stabilizer, Rental Bars, Heated Grips, MCCT, and god knows what else. [Once again, thanks to this forum, for helping me spend money.] In 2009 I bought a WR450 and plated it. The DRZ spent one more summer as a backup bike for my brother and friends. In 2010 it found a spot in our Barn... up until a week ago. Long story short, after a 7 year sleep I put a jump pack on it and it started right up. I thought for sure I was going to spend a weekend getting the carb cleaned out and making it pretty again. However, a half hour with a power washer and she was trail ready again. I did a 60 mile loop with it on Saturday and on Saturday night I got an offer I couldn’t refuse. [My original plan was to clean it up and try to trade for a golf cart.] It was a lot more emotional than I expected, I forgot how much I really liked that bike. I was really tempted to turn down the offer, since my brother in law is just getting into trail riding and he really liked it. In the end, I sold it to a friend… I hope it servers her well.
  2. I just tried craigslist, might have a lead... all TTR-230's used the same rear half right? 2016 vs 2006?
  3. EDIT - Ignore my rant... found a guy selling a TTR230 on Craigslist and asked about the exhaust and he had one. I've been looking for an unmolested stock exhaust for my wife's TT-230 quite some time. I haven't had a lot of luck. I find clapped out ones on eBay once in awhile but nothing nice. I figured most people take them off soon after buying and replace with aftermarket. Is that not the case on these smaller bikes? If anyone has any tips in helping me find one, I'd reward you greatly.
  4. Thanks everyone. I did buy my bike new, but it and the manual are 100 miles away from home.
  5. Thanks guys. Just in case I can find one cheap, what is the correct number of links?
  6. So, I have 2009 WR450 and it and the owners manual is at the cabin. I want to purchase a new chain and sprockets. I did some searching, but wasn't sure what my gearing, chain size and number of links is stock. With the mix of riding I do, I'm fine with the stock setup. Thanks in advance.
  7. I think you just answered the reason why it broke.
  8. Looks good enough to me, hope it hold up well for you.
  9. I wish I could find a stock exhaust. Any on E-Bay go for way more than I'm willing to papy.
  10. If I can blindly change the oil in your daughters bike, and you can hop on and tell me what weight oil I'm using... I'll buy the first round of beers.
  11. Bwhahahaha
  12. Oh god, not another oil thread. PS - I prefer Wesson to Canola oil... I think it smells better.
  13. ... because they are girls bike! Hehe... just kidding, but my girl does like her TTR.
  14. Every state has different rules on what you need to become street legal. In Michigan it is super easy. I thought Ohio used to be hard, but I don't know. Go hit the regional forums for your area, they can tell you what you need to do.
