WIth 15-42, you can cruise comfortably at 120.

Yip, 14-48 is standard.

I'm running a 14 / 45 and its too short for anything over a 20 minute tar ride. I'd go 15 / 42 or so for longer trips. Offroad it's awesome as it is.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

I also just changed exhausts and (even accounting for jetting) the stock system gives a slightly longer rev range, and an extra 5 or 10 km/h at the top end than the Yoshi RS-2 system did. Something to think about if you want power or top end.

ALSO

There is some importer Wrench spoke to who sells Yoshi RS2 systems for R6200. Much cheaper than the cost of R9000 that i'd heard about.

I hit up trac mac in town. PBR sprockets ex o-ring chain. was around R1000 for all. like R1200. phone them if you want exact prices. and they nearly always hook up cash discount. they had both 14 and 15t front sprockets and a number of sizes for the rear as well :)

i'd go 15 - 44 or so.

i went 14 - 47, like a mullet on a pogo stick,

Hey all,

I'm on the look out for a new bike and a DRZ is probably top of my list. If you know of or spot any good deals I'd love to hear about them!

Thanks,
g1

I think thats a good deal

If the man is looking at offers on R32k, you will be hard pressed to get something better for the price.

At that price, it's an excellent buy!
