    chain size

    ordering a new chain and sprokets today .what size chain is on my drz400s ? I like the stock gearing it works good for me .do you just count the teeth ? thanks for the help .
  7. Its time to replace my chain and sprockets.After 7000 great miles I now only have very little adjustment left .I am not complaning and have been happy with the stock parts .Do I need to replace both sprockets and chain or just the rear and chain .I am on A real tight budget.For the money should I buy aftermarket or OEM ? some one told me to take A link out but they had also never heard of A O-ring chain. Thanks for any advice.

    Questions re xt 225 anybody familiar???

    I am looking for two answers. The first is this: When the bike is cold, after it is cranked and semi warm, when I put it in first it dies....again and again and again. After it has been run a bit it's fine but what a pain in the grass to get going. I seriously plan start up time in my trip. It will die repeatedly for about 20 minutes before it decides it is time to go. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I am also having a very hard time finding a gaurd for the headlight. Any ideas??? 1997 XT 225 Michelle

    fork tubes = handling ???

    I have heard you can move the fork tubes up or down in the triple trees to adjust ride height . Is this correct ? if so how does it affect the bikes handling ?

    Moose Handguard Installation Question

    I had the same concerns ,but all has worked out well. I just drilled the holes and screwed them in no problems so far and I have abused those handguards. good luck
