There are rumours of 50bhp. I suppose I should learn how to ride.

That's a fair few more hp's than normal. Is that because of the big bore kit?

Dont bet on 50 at the wheel... Unless you added a stroker kit

Mine was touching on 46 at the wheel...

Hot cam
434 piston - big bore barrel
Some fancy air-flow mod on the bottom end of the piston

It's not confirmed yet, we'll see once it's all back together and on the road.

50bhp does seem a lot, stock I was getting 39bhp.
I crash test all of my safety gear. Do you?

50rwhp on a DRZ requires a big bore kit, stroker kit, FCR41 and extensive valve work. Also a proper header pipe.

Lets see.

Good luck...

Engine's READY!!!!!!



Collecting on Monday or Tuesday.

I may ask for the crank to be tig-welded, for extra strength  :thumleft: but otherwise we're all good.

Looking at between 45 and 50 bhp :)

Wheelie pics would insinuate that Milddog can actually ride his 50hp anchor  :deal:  :peepwall:

Yah, this bike will be far faster than I can ride.

I should get it back today (leaky clutch actuator seal that Suzuki South were slow to deliver).

We'll ride this weekend.

Its behaving now. Turns out it was a faulty relay switch which was difficult to detect. but now my back brake is not releasing the pads properly so riding without back brake for now  :eek7: It's a function of the piston getting stuck in the up position and not sliding down like it is meant to, right near the rear back-brake pedal.

Its way too fast for me now. Rode it last night. Awesome fun.

434 piston and barrel. Light-weight valve springs. Intake-cam. Leo vince pipe. Superbike Solutions air-flow mod.

Haven't dyno'd yet. Will post results when it's done.

Just read the entire thread now. Jeez, what a rollercoaster ;D

Seems DRZ ownership is everything but boring.

Glad the bike is fixed again :thumleft:

You're just 16 cc's short of Amageza entry or the cut-off for the Dakar!
