So I got this drz 400sm on sunday thinking it would be a great commuter.
I rode it home on Sunday and rode it to work on Tuesday,Wednesday and today.
It was popping pretty bad on decel having a full pipe but not being jetted,so I bought a jet kit off Stinky fast from here and put it in last night.(the plug was a bit white-gray)
I got done about midnight and went for a test ride and found the backfiring was gone.
So after a bit of fooling with the a/f mix went to bed and rode to work as normal..or so I though.
I rolled out along lougheed and looked down to see my speedo way into impound land and hit the brakes thinking wow that was quick, so much for not needing a radar for this bike.
The real fun came coming home,traffic was screwed so I took some side roads and quickly discovered I could lift the front wheel from a dead stop at every stop sign or light.After about 10 I figured I better knock that shit off,but now it just came naturally as I had found the clutch/throttle sweet spot.
Thinking I should find an area to experiment with this bike I turned of into an industrial area and found I could even pull wheelies in first without the clutch at all and clutch it up in 2nd without much problem either.
This bike was supposed to be a somewhat fun commuter but I can see my self possibly getting in lot more trouble than I ever did on my sport bike.
The sport bike keeps me in line due to its over the top hp and speed and knowing the city streets are just not the place to use it but this sumo seems like it wants to get me arrested!
Maybe I should trade it for a v-strom before it's too late.
