    One more reason to hate quads.

    I started checking on fixing the trailtech permanently. you can switch the stock odometer plate but I will make a bracket because I think it still puts the trailtech too low and not centered.

    wr450f at highway speeds

    I'll confirm with my friend, but we were riding along him with a ZX6R and he told me I was right there with him at 95mph I'll check if I have stock gearing, because I bought the bike used and the guy did trail riding he might have changed the sproket sizes. What is the stock one on a '03?

    Suzuki drz400 SM? dirt worthy? (newbie)

    hum, I don't know, I'm not into suzukis, maybe you're right then. But I'm pretty sure it's set up for street and not for dirtbike, so stock it would probably bottom out and rebounce like crazy if jumping a lot

    well in my opinion, it's enough I'm not talking a WR or CRF, the DRZ is street setup. I did not think it could jump that much

    you don't, have to mount it on the handlebar, you can flip your stock trip odometer plate and mount it there. The remote is mounted on the handlebar, I put it on the left side. Mine is still temporary installed but I'm planning to set it up permanently tonight or thursday

    supermotard bike? reccomendations!!

    I ride my WR on the highway no problem... it haulls until about 100mph. I don't get the wind thing... I run sitting straight on my R6 and have as much wind as on the WR, I drive my boat at speed and have as much wind (and no helmet), etc. sure highway is boring, but it's boring whatever you're riding in/on unless it's a limousine with a bunch of very horny chicks. as for oil changes, I do them every ~250 miles but I just change the top part, I don,t mess with changing everything since I change it very often and I check filter about every 3 oil change. Also it takes really not much oil so it's not a pain to do.
