    2012 KTM XC-W, gobs of power! I'm 6'5" and right around 250lbs and this things pull me around like i'm a 180lb rider. I added Factory Connection fork and shock springs and that made a huge difference. My wheels track the ground excellent in trail and desert riding. Love it!

    I love the DRZ, it does everything I want a bike to do. Some of my other mods that aren't detailed below are the Vibranator vibration canceling bar inserts, flush mount rear turn signals, ProMoto billet rack, and a tool box from a Yamaha XT225.
  4. Hey all, I recently bought a 13 WR250F, and so far am loving the bike (came off a 04 yz125). The power is very mellow and easy to use in the bush which is where I ride. That said, I am wondering where the correct position is on the foot pegs for my feet. I wear MX boots, is this what all enduro riders wear? I have played a bit with my gear shifter position and rear brake freeplay to try and set it up so i can have my foot under the shifter and over the rear brake while standing/sitting but I can't find a happy medium. I am fearful of riding the rear brake with my foot over it, and sometimes accidentally hit it and lock up my gear. I had the gear shifter up so high that I had to left my leg off to change gears correctly, surely this isn't the correct technique for off road riding. Originally I would ride with the arch of my foot (the curved part?) and stick my feet outwards to prevent hitting the rear brake or shifting. But holding the bike with my legs feels unnatural this way, so I assume its not the correct way to ride, as everybody says. Grip the bike with your legs! So being a total gumby and noob, what is the correct technique and foot placement? Should I look at a after market shift leaver? I am a size US 12 in a MX boot.
  5. After installing Jimmy Button hi bars and an up and forward riser on my DRZ I was right at the limit of my cables. I really didn't want to go higher with the expense of new parts and new cables. I wanted to lower the already high center of gravity a little, not raise it more. Knight Design was willing to make a set of lower pegs ( close to 1in. lower) and after some work has come up with a peg that works great for me, and the brake and shifter can easily be adjusted to the new height. The pegs are also lighter and look cool as well. I am 6'2" and weigh 210 lbs. I can finally stand without getting a sore neck. If interested you can contact: Alicia at Knight Design at sales@knightdesignllc.com or google it. I am not affiliated with Knight Design. Just trying to help others with the same problem I had. 2 pics attached
  6. Ok, been playing with a couple of different pairs of boots lately and starting to look at what I'm standing on, LOL! Yeah, I still have the OEM 2014 stuff, and decided against using the PivotPegs as I had on my last bike. I guess there is not a lot of options for the Beta bikes yet? I'm not liking the OEM "wide pegs" on the Beta website. There's Fastway and what else that fits the Beta that people like? Is there another bikes pegs that fit our Beta's?? Thanx! M
  7. What a pleasure to work on a almost new DRZ434 SM (SSW worked motor already)... Clean, well maintained and rider wanting to do only the best in add ons, MODS, and all the reliability fixes prepping for a long upcoming ride. I really don't mind helping out the cash strapped rider that just needs it fixed.... But I really enjoy building with the best parts available.

  8. Hey Everyone, Caleb with ProMotoBillet. Looking for everyone's thoughts on some footpeg questions! What are some of the main reasons why you would/have purchased aftermarket footpegs? What material do you look for? Are there some adjustments that aren't offered that you would like to see? What is the highest you are willing to pay for the perfect set of footpegs? Really appreciate any thoughts you all have. Thank you!

    fun bike very well balanced and light. Plenty of power too with revs to the moon.
  10. STEP IT UP! Malcolm Smith Racing Hard Parts Foot Pegs Are Outstanding In Their Field August 11, 2016 Irvine, CA — The Malcolm Smith Racing Collection has to live up to the standards set by the legendary Malcolm Smith himself.

Every component in the collection is engineered to not only survive but thrive in the most extreme conditions. “Before Malcolm's name goes on, some serious design goes into every product,” explains Brand Manager Jason Gearld. “Case and point, our stainless steel foot pegs.

With that in mind Malcolm Smith Racing pegs feature an exclusive arched cleat design to provide for better positioning and enhanced control. Further improving feel and control are the 55mm wide foot beds and aggressive cleats to keep the riders feet firmly planted at all times. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel construction ensures that these pegs will last a full Six Days, if not the lifetime of your bike, quips Gearld. “And they will look damned good doing it!” · Stainless steel cast construction resists rust and corrosion for added life and durability · Exclusive camber/arched cleat design aids in enhanced rider positioning and control · A 55mm wide platform provides for comfort and control · Aggressive peaked cleat pattern keeps rider firmly planted in all weather conditions without tearing up the soles of your boots · Open flow-thru design keeps mud and rocks from building up · 13mm (1/2″) rear offset for larger feet or to achieve a more rearward position · Made in the U.S.A. “When it comes time to step up your off-road game settle for nothing less than legendary!” says Gearld. “Keep your elbows up and your feet on Malcolm Smith Racing pegs.” Get more details here: http://msracing.com/hard-parts/controls/foot-controls/footpegs.html ### About Malcolm Smith Racing HardParts: Malcolm Smith Racing off-road products bear the name of the most legendary off-road racer of all time and we are honor-bound to live up to the legacy.

    This bike is a super easy bike to ride. I took it out on exactly the same trail as my usual old WR250F and was able to ride it with more speed and confidence. I was expecting the Suzuki to be more difficult to ride with the stiffer springs, heavier weight and bigger engine but the opposite was true. The thing that really set the two bikes apart was the confident handling at the front end of the Suzuki. Whenever it hit a large rock I could find the front deflected to an extent and having to steer the bike back onto the trail. The Yamaha tends to get horribly rattled on the same obstacles. It feels like the wheel gets deflected sideways and it's a violent, slipping over feeling (to be fair to the WR it could be a suspension problem and I plan to work on it). The heavier weight of the DR-Z gives it a stable feel on the trail and irons out the stiff bumps somewhat. The only time the extra weight was really noticeable was when the bike was airborne and flicked a bit. The suspension was smooth, responsive and predictable. The engine was very smooth, with plenty of torque. It's also pretty responsive for a 400cc single and I'm keen to see what it's like when worn in. Minimal gear changes were necessary since the sweet spot is huge. What it puts up with before it stalls makes it very learner friendly. The ergonomics are very comfy for my height. The height of the bike (with stock seat, sag not set) was very comfortable with my 80cm (31.5") inseam. I found my back a little fatigued standing with the stock handlebars, but I did have a tendency to try to get my weight back on this bike. I can't really explain why I was doing that, I can only guess it's because it's geometry feels different to what I'm used to and I'm compensating unnecessarily. The ergonomics of the Suzuki actually seem more suited to my size than the WR250F (2002), which seems like it's for someone a little taller. A negative is the lack of a 6th gear. For trail riding it doesn't need one, but if you want a bike you can ride on the highway and the trails (which is pretty much the purpose of road legal dirt bike) this would be something that would make you look around rather than get this bike. The looks of this bike are ok, but not stunning. You know it's a dual sport from the looks. The stock graphics are attractive and minimalist. If you buy at the right time of year (pre-Christmas promotions) they throw in a bonus enduro kit by redemption with spark arrestor, Suzuki bash plate, Suzuki radiator guards and Barkbusters 'Ego' hand guards. The Ego model is a low profile small model meant for shorty levers. The stock DR-Z doesn't have shorty levers so I think 'Jet' would have been a better choice so that there is no buzzing against them. The bash plate also makes a hideous rattling noise that turns heads. It was coming from the rear bracket rattling against the cross-member it rests on and I can't do it up any firmer or adjust it. So I solved the problem with a piece of foam beer can cozy. The rider: 5'8" 65 kg (143 lb) 39 year old female Moderate fitness level Intermediate level trail rider The bike set up: It has an SDG tall seat and Moose Hybrid footpegs with rear offset as the only aftermarket changes. The exhaust and jetting are unchanged and the road restrictor remains installed in the muffler.

    My FIRST motorcycle at 46 years of age! Bought this 2015 Yamaha WR250R brand new from the dealer back in Oct 2015 with 4 miles on it. Most of my miles are street and highway but hit the dirt often and whenever I can. Simply love this bike! I'm currently setting it up for Adv Riding and it'll be seeing more of the USA and Canada this and following years. No trailers, no rear carriers.. just me, the bike and the miles we pass.

    It's not a serious dirt bike, but it's lots of fun on and off road. Probably my favorite thing is the low seat height, I fall over with my DR-Z400 every ride in the dirt.

    Recently I've owned an 08 WR450F, 11 KX450F, and now a 13 450SXF. I have to say the KTM is the cream of the 450 MX crop in the snow. This bike performs so well for me I've decided to hang onto it for another season.
