Has anyone fitted a 12v socket to the DRZ? Are there spare available wires behind the headlight?

Edgy, run one from the ignition :)

Yip, you can get flickers in CT, just the Edge taillight is very scarce...

I got a lekker pair from Tracmac

You can also get them from the place across the road from Tracmac in Waterkant Str. Nice selection.

Ok guys, I enjoy my bike and it has enough wooma for me. What I'd really like is to get more km/l
with out running lean and damaging the engine.

So, I get around 20km/l.

What does a stock DRZ out of the box give? Sidetrack said he got around 26km/l...that would be great considering
I want top do long distance trips and need some good millage out of of my tank.

Any ideas what to do?

If I take it to the Dino guys and they put a dynojet kit in, will that help with fuel efficiency or only on the power side.

Or should I just accept 20km/l? Bus...km/l?

I get round about 20km/L too, but thats "urban" stuff, lots of stop-start stuff.  >:D

When cruising at constant throttle I get 25-26km/L

It also depends on your gearing and cruising speed.

Jetting will def help for your fuel mileage, and also more vooma...

Win-win

Dyno time is money really well spent...
