My bikes got 14500km on the clock. I wanna take it in for a dyno next week, but haven't done my valve clearances yet(normally 15000km).

Will it make a huge difference if I dyn0 before or after doing my valve clearances?

All I know is the closer the clearance the better it will perform but loose valves are happy valves  :biggrin:

Thanks!

The tank is actually made for the S model, not my E, so I had to make some allu brackets that attach to the frame etc. took a couple of hours...but it works now! Only thing with 17l on the front...the front wheel is heavy to lift in 3rd gear :D

Felt I needed to take part on this tread sometime, and I have just been riding all over the place with my baby, and I LOVE her!  Once I've calmed down a bit, I'll read this thread from front to back, learnt a whole lot more, maybe I can qualify as a DRZ true owner... so, I shall return!

still waiting offical news

how long could this take....

I'm officially closed this week and only attend to current affairs (revival of Operators Djebel XC and Newguy's DRZ)
Will have to drink more Whale Tale Ale for additional boxes to disassemble another DRZ ;D

Will probably fetch and have a look tomorrow.
