    DRZ corbin issue

    if none of the sticky recommendations works out, you could send it back to corbin for a modification. just tell them the seat pushes you forward. they can shave the back part down a bit so it doesnt slide you forward as much. modifications are free for the life of the seat. at least to the original owner. i dont know if they ask about that.

    #1 Homemade Fender Elim $10 PICS

    that looks like the tire would hit the plate as soon as you go over a lil bump. actually it looks like it would hit just by sitting on it!

    Aluminum Kickstand Installed

    i just got mine today. its much better quality than i expected; almost a shame to have to use it. i got one because i needed a shorter stand for my lowered drz400S. thus i ordered the aluminun SM version which fits and works great for a lowered S. on the aluminum SM stand, i noticed the distance from mounting bolt to the shaft pin holding the spring is about 0.5" longer than stock. this puts a bit more tension on the springs and hence it snaps up with quite a bit more force. i hope the aluminum holds up to many of these snaps. i'm using just one of the springs for now. anyone else noticed this?

    Street riding and protective gear

    for commuting on the SM...... perforated Teknic leather jacket, XD helm, leather race gloves, Sidi boots, jeans. for fun riding...all above + textile overpants. followed a R6 this week. rider in shorts and t-shirt. girl on back in bikini with flip flops. i followed them a bit cause she had a really nice butt unfortunately if they wrecked, her bikini would likely come off. imagine the paramedics finding a completely nude blonde lying on the pavement and finally... Neil, i understand there was a naked bike ride in the UK recently. and i don't mean naked, streetfighter type of bikes

    The good the bad and the WTF?!

    dan, did you remember to use the small spring from the stock screw? there is also a small rubber o-ring and washer too. without the spring, there is no tension on the screw so it can vibrate out same thing happened to me when it died about 10 miles from home. had to ride home with the choke on. thought for sure i had lost the screw. when i got home, found the screw sitting above the chaingaurd; its a wonder it stayed there the 10+ miles. more fortunate, i even found the little bittie washer, o-ring, and spring on the garage floor if you lost them, can order them from ron aryes. i know cause i almost had to. i would guess that if you put the stock screw back without the spring, it'll end up on the road after a few miles too,,,,maybe right next to your extended fuel screw! altitude: 400ft summer temps: 100+ F

    Hit by car

    "Cars turning left in front of us is the largest threat we street riders face. Unfortunately, there's little time to react. I make it a habit to flash between hi/lo beam several times in such situations " first of all, glad you are ok! regarding the above quote, i completely agree. drivers not seeing motorcylists and moving into the bikes path is the most common cause of bike accidents. regarding flashing the headlights hi/low, i've always wondered if that may give some drivers the wrong signal. i.e. telling them its ok to go! i thought about a headlight modulator, but for now i give my handlebars a little self-induced headshake when approaching an intersection with a left turning car in front.

    corbin vs gel seat height

    i have/had corbins on two other bikes. it does get better as it breaks in; that and i think you get used to it. we're about the same age and i certainly notice that i get more uncomfortable than when i was younger. i just finished a 200 mile road trip and the corbin was much better; sore, but much better.

    400S seat solution: no solution?

    the corbin is not the hideous one. i think it was the mayer one that was making people lose their eyesight.
