Rushed home from work and snuck in over 100 miles. I’m afraid it may be my last ride for the year. I hope not, but the weather doesn’t seem to want to cooperate.

Hows the "big girl" treating you?

Pretty good for the most part. She rolls pretty well. Deceptively fast. I often find myself riding just as fast as I would on the CBR without noticing it, especially with the bigger of the 2 windshields I have. I’m not as aggressive in corners as I would be with the CBR, but I still get after it a bit. The biggest bonus is the wife has actually asked to take the bike occasionally. She isn’t quite up to my all day long trips but we have made a couple 1.5 hr runs. She’s not quite super comfortable yet. I do have her convinced to maybe try out a Goldwing with me with the idea of possibly longer trips. Thanks for asking.

Great idea!  The big girl is deceptively fun, but the Wing 2 up is tough to beat.

Motor started ticking and there's some metal in the oil. Early DRZs have camchain issues, I'll throw a new camchain on it, no biggie. 1312557738_drzrightside.thumb.JPG.6191809c62048435b7ebec582c74b20e.JPG

Still ticking, NOPE must be bottom end issue D'OH.

Check the can chain tensioner.  Some of them had issues.   I had a DRZ400 that the previous owner changed the cam chain tensioner to an aftermarket for a similar reason.

I wish it were that easy. I've already replaced the camchain and tensioner on this one.

Got one of these which seemed pretty slick if you don't have usb or voltmeter. 

It measured 12.5 in the car even when i gave it gas but it is a CVT.

Measured a spare battery at 13.2 with a regular voltmeter. This thing 12.5.  Measured a 9v batt.. 12.5

Raising hell with the seller.
