  1. On a 4-stroke, I call this an "automatically lubricated chain". :-)

    TTers, Up for grabs is this sweet Michelin Pilot ROAD 4 rear tire in 150/70ZR17. Never mounted. Factory stickers are still on them. Not familiar with the Pilot ROAD series? Here's some info. These are especially great if you commute or want extended tire life and occasionally find yourself in some weather. http://motorcycle.michelinman.com/US/en/tires/products/pilot-road-4.html The back story: My DRZ 400 SM was stolen recently, and I'm sticking with the bike I have left (with pedals) until I finish school. Hence, I'm selling off some spare parts I have. I was just about to mount these tires when my bike was stolen. My loss = your gain. I paid $170 Yours for $140 obo. Prefer local pickup (I'm in West Lafayette, IN), but I will ship to CONUS. Buyer pays shipping. I have a Pilot Power 3 120/70 ZR17 also. For sale on separate thread. Buy them both and I'll be happy to cut a deal. Note: This is a slightly higher profile than the stock DRZ tire. PM me if interested. Ryan

    TTers, Front tire beat after an epic riding season? Sick of those chicken strips from all that highway driving? I've got your problem solved! Up for grabs is this sweet Michelin Pilot Power 3 (2CT) front tire in 120/70ZR17. Never mounted. Factory stickers are still on them. Not familiar with the PP3/2CT? Here's some info. These are especially great if you commute or want extended tire life: http://motorcycle.michelin.com.au/US/en/tires/products/pilot-power-3.html The back story: My DRZ 400 SM was stolen recently, and I'm sticking with the bike I have left (with pedals) until I finish school. Hence, I'm selling off some spare parts I have. I was just about to mount these tires when my bike was stolen. My loss = your gain. I paid $110. Yours for $80. Prefer local pickup (I'm in West Lafayette, IN), but I will ship to CONUS. Buyer pays shipping. I have a Pilot Road 4 150/70 ZR17 also. For sale on separate thread. This is a slightly higher profile than the stock DRZ tire, so I didn't group them together. PM me if interested. Ryan

    TTers, It's a say day for me, but after my bike was stolen, I'm deciding to hang up the helmet for a while. Hence, I'm selling off my spare parts inventory. I'll be updating this thread as I take more pictures and inventory what I have. If you're looking for anything in particular, feel free to ask. I'll start it off with (8) OEM Suzuki Oil Filters. New in box. Part# 16510-29F00. $5/each. Buy 1 or all. PM me if interested. Ryan

    $5.00

  5. I have an RMZ fender like the one Doc posted if anybody's interested. The SM fender was on the bike when it was stolen.... This one was sitting on the shelf. Time to let her go.
  6. If you want a DOT knobby, I've found nothing better then the Dunlop D606 (rear). As for fronts... jury still out for me. I've tried lots, and they always wore out way faster than I would have hoped. I experimented with fronts for a while, and most recently a Metzeler Karoo 2 (they make the 3 now I think). It will wear WAY slower than a MT21. DOT knobbies are expensive... there are cheaper options out there that are perfectly safe on pavement if you don't care about those three letters and need an aggressive tire for play. If you want to go further on a tire change and don't want to the expense of the DOT knobbies, consider a tire with a tread "like" the stock trail wings. You'll be limited on what you can do outside of your commute, though.
  7. This has been my experience as well. I was a huge fan of the 15/41 for street / highway use. I used Sunstars exclusively... cuz they're cheap and good. Whatever sprocket you use, keep the chain clean, lubed, and properly tensioned, and it will last a long time. Whatever direction you go, pay attention to your chain size (length). If I recall, stock S/E chain is 112 link. SM is 110 link. 15/41 works great on 110 link. You're limited on how big you can go on the rear with a 110 link. At the same time, you're limited on how small you can go on the rear with a 112. I have a brand new Sunstar 13t front, 44t rear, and 47t rear that I'd be happy to sell. PM me if interested.
  8. Bump. Last call! Please don't make me dump $36 of unused oil!
  9. TT Friends, 2L of Silkolene are yours if you want it. Moving off island and can't take it with me. PM me if interested. I'm on Oahu. -4strokeonly
  10. Righty tighty, lefty loosey holds true with the counter balance nut.
  11. Sounds fair until you look at what people ask for them out here in Hawaii. I can't replace it for $3k. My policy covered the aftermarket parts... to a limit. http://honolulu.craigslist.org/search/oah/mcy?is_paid=all&search_distance_type=mi&query=drz
  12. Thanks man. It was posted on SSH. I put up online fliers everywhere. Turns out, the insurance company made a mistake... My DRZ was not recovered. Still lost. I'm butting heads with them over the value of my bike. Here's a question... What would you all think is a fair value for my DRZ?? Picture at the top. 2003 DRZ S in SM dress. Frame and plastics in excellent condition. Extremely well maintained. No rust. All the normal fixes. Excel / Talon 17" wheels, 320mm rotor, Pilot Power tires (wear 50% front / 10% rear), FCRMX Carb, "E" Cams, "E" Header, Manual Cam Tensioner, custom stainless luggage rack, Cycra handguards, and a custom LED tail light built with Edge 2 shell. My insurance company is valuing the bike at $2500 and offering $555 more for the extras. ~$3000 all together.
  13. Just got a call from the insurance company.... apparently my DRZ was found. In what condition? I have no idea. At this point, I think I'd still rather it be a total loss. Who knows what these thieves did to it...
  14. Anybody in Hawaii missing a DRZ engine? https://honolulu.craigslist.org/oah/mpo/5295990229.html
  15. Don't seem to be too many cheep DRZ's on this little rock... at least ones in good shape. Bikes are plentiful here, but the market seems inflated. I'm trying to figure out what to do next. I never thought I'd get rid of that bike. I was getting ready to rebuild the engine after I rolled over 30,000 miles in the next couple months. Do I get another DRZ?
