    Tires tires tires. . .

    Tires tires tires. . . Ok I know this has been covered. . .BUT guys (gals) I need some new rubber and I am not sure what the best way to go is? I do an even 50/50 on road off road ride style. I ride in NYC and I ride some bumpy back woods & trails hard too. I am looking at the Pirelli Scorpion Pro’s but I would love to hear what tires you have and what you love/hate about them? Thanks all and PEACE! –N.

    DRZ 400S Clutch Trouble. . . .

    oil & filter are new as that is the first thing i thought. i did look at the clutch free play at the hand & lever should i look below as well?
  5. So here’s the deal. . . I am having a hard time finding neutral after the bike warms up when standing still. On the road she switches gears no problem but once I pull in the clutch at a red light and try to either up or down shift from 1st or 2nd into neutral she won’t go without a fight? Any suggestions? I can give more details if need be Thanks & Peace –N.

    best engine oil

    yous guys are by far the most anal oil changing mofo's around. i use any barnd of dino so long as it's 10w-40 SE/SF rated. change the oil & filter every 2000-3000 miles. never had a prob and i ride ALL my bikes HARD. do not go for the designer stuff it's all commin from the same place any-who. my 2¢. --N.

    To anyone commenting on my "ride safe" posting who does not have actually kids under 10 years old riding the dam. . . best not talk about anything you know zero about. Makes you look foolish. Second, I did not attack anyone on this forum, never have. Do not flame me as it’s in poor taste. And telephone tough guys are usually the first to run when faced with a real situation. Third as I constantly look out for my own two boys who ride the dam I also look out for young riders on the trails I do not know and request to the more aggressive riders to take it easy as your vision is often limited due to trees and other obstacles. Again this is a great place. Let’s not lose it.
