so it looks like I needs to stop behaving like an overprotective mother as the drz seems to be running fine!

Got Gatvol this morning and decided to ride it to Andy's work shop and show him and Bradleys the smoke, lil cheeky fucker ran 120% no smoke no smell no nothing........  ::)

so maybe it was just residue from the cracked gasket or I dunno, gonna keep riding it and see what happens

Tim's cool like that. Very level headed and calm. Problem is when he gets worried then it's normally a serious issue.

I really like the tank :) I want one... Too bad they're so espensive!

Bus, are you even on your zook anymore? stop photobombing and ride your bike.

I am going to put an RMZ front fender on my bike. Will this work? Will it look as cool as I think it will? I don't want my bike to develop more problems than it already has. N[]va diagnosed it with downs' syndrome a few weeks ago.

Sidetrack had a black and yellow kit he interchanged on his S model, with RMZ fenders, looked much better. I just did not get to it. Looks waayyy better than the std flapper.

But it doesn't beat my DT180, it looks like a spietkop when your driving, waving around and all.

Then you must try the XRR! Especially down by the coast I believe it will be awesome. Up here and without it being set yet, it just want to flip over if you give too much throttle!!

Glad you're enjoying it!!  :ricky:
