    how DR-Z handle big bore kits

    can someone who has had any experience with big bore kits please reply to sleds querry,As Im looking to bigbore my 06 DRZSM, possably to 470, however ive heard that it makes your 4 stroke more like a two stroke,as it spreads your power out through the rev range,and is not worth the monetry outlay, also could somone give a rough increase in power for say the 435/453/470 conversions????? Cheers DRZ

    fork tubes = handling ???

    i think yours was not a tanlslapper,but as your front hit the sand and slowed,your throttle remained the same and there rear tried to overtake the front,you actually lost the rear!!!!!

    fork tubes = handling ???

    Tankslapper means when your speed, or bike position takes the bikes susppension into the range with which it cant cope, and the bars slap from side to side violently and out of control of the rider,"the bars slapping the tank on there full range off movment",usally after a rapid change in direction,or after landing the front wheel after it has seased contact with the road, The front lands off axis with the Rear wheel,and in its rapid path to come back on line it has gained to much inerta, and moves past its axis line,this action fueled by the bikes forward motion, continues violently untill the rider regains control,or previously mentioned rider and bike merge with solid objects, tankslappers are violent and scary even when minor,and remind me of the saying "i was just a passanger" because as you move forward to crashing, you are tottally out of control of the bikes tankslapping motion............ hope this helps .................
