yeah well its still a bit soft, but i like it like that, especially when coming off jumps and stuff less painful, i'm not that heavy only around 70 kg
DRZ's they seem to be the all round bike with the least amout of problems.... if its not flogged ha ha
other than that id go for a WR or a CRF but the CRF X's have bad valve wearing problem
anything you found bad about a WR450F?

Yer must be comfy whilst riding,too many hard hits cause probs though,one thing I hate bout my WR is the seat is like sitting on a church pew sideways,suspension is too hard and too high.
After a few jumps its more tolerable.
I miss my dr,been thru some mad shit together!
The things I didn't like with my bike?its not a 2 stroke
Things i didnt like is the gears,revs out in 5th at 90 - 110 but a change of gearing will sort that even tho I'm running 14-47,the bike is way too choked up but I've sorted that out,runs abit hotter than I'd like it to but I'm looking at aftermarket water pumps,radiators and caps,security (a button replaces the key models) but apart from that its a great bike!done nearly 4,000 kms on it n haven't had a prob with valves,it gets ridden hard!
But I spend on it,good oil n lubes,no adjustments to valves yet.mx bikes mainly have valve probs coz they get raped by the idiots that ride them I believe

cant really adjust it make it any softer?
Been through a bit on this one to haha
ha ha well i guess it would help
good to know they are a good bike, yeah i noticed they dont have a key, that wouldn't be very good if you too it down town
they sound quite reliable, ould you recommend it as a bike to get?
hahaah yeah motor cross riders, they got the money to get new ones

I'd rather get it set up properly tho coz sometimes you can make worse for handling.
Yer downtown ppl know not to touch my bike,its a small town!lol
The only thing is the steering lock but you can ride it around in circles unless you're a wheelie king like Doug domokos was n wheelie around corners too,hahahaha!
Mechanical they are really good mate tbh,oil change every thousand Kay's and just a general check over,its been a great bike.the powertuner is a must if you buy one,muffler if you want but std flows pretty good,knock the flutes out the bottom of the air box,shorter throttle stop screw which you get in the kit brand new n its a 100 times better,doesn't get as hot.
Need the plug in loom to use the powertuner which comes in the off road kit otherwise the powertuner won't read it.id recommend this bike for sure if ur lookn for a thrill with a monster hit
I'm ex mx and yer riders these days have changed,there wannabe's.when the 4 strokes came out I was still racing a 250 2 stroke,they were just arseholes to you if you didn't own one but i used to beat them on a 2 stroke,show'em how its done!
I always kept quiet when I'd win races,it goes to show you don't need a new bike,a bad attitude towards others and a big ego to win,learn on a 2 stroke the rest will come natural
I look at some of the riders at the local and think to myself "all the gear and no idea"

That's good then, if i was to upgrade to something better, i would consider getting one of these
hahaha, love the two strokes, only thing is the range they can travel, and l how much fuel they cheww :/
ya know, i've always wanted to know a good saying for people who have the best bikes and gear, but cant ride if their life depended on it.
I just found that saying, cheers

There are some brilliant riders and most of them have done well on 2 strokes but the real grinders are the guys who go even better on 2 and 4 strokes.
Not too many of them around but they are here,I think :/
Mileage is a touchy thing for some guys on 2 strokes but I've always known you have to sacrifice fuel economy for horsepower,depends how you set the up really.ive got a dt175 that's worked as far as it can be and its fun to ride!
Yeah the WR is a good bike but takes a bit of getting used to,I like doing stand up wheelies on this thing!
Why not look at getting one?doesnt have to be a new one,just look for an 06 or somthing?their carbed but that don't matter,America hasn't got as good fuel as we do so there's less to worry about IF you maintain them properly!

well i dont ride two stokes to often now iv got the DRZ, usually i ride with two mates both on two strokes, one a rm250 the other a yz250, they got plenty of power, but once we start going a while away from home they wish they didn't get the 2 banger. Mine catches the yz in long distance after a while , but the rm drags me causes its geared down.
my Dads got a DT175 1980 model, still chugs along. yeah they are a fun bike, very easy to ride to.
Yeah ive been looking in the paper, there was an 2010 for 6500 the other day

Mate of mine had an 03 kx250 n he rode mine most of the time coz he couldn't ride his own!have to set them up properly or get kdx250.
The rm's go hard like a slut in a brothel,that was my race bike,yz's go good too.
I got an 88 dt175,awesome bike no matter wat,they're so much fun!sound like wine cask full of broken metal but they just keep on going!
Look on eGay coz ya get a few cheap ones that pass by every now n then,get an older one thats good n do stuff to it to suit your needs
Posted 03 May 2013 - 01:04 AM
hahaha that would be funny
but the RM's go harder even for an older model it had more
Yeah i have to agree, they do sound a bit crappy, other than that its a great little bike
i rode it around for ages before i got the drz

i put it straight in, idles beautifully, but mid to full noise it dies a bit, ive tried all clip positions on the needle, but none will get it to run properly. it feels like its running out of fuel

At full throttle was it surging?
