Congrats. Like mxb2 said, get the suspension over to your favorite tuner. The RMZ has a pretty rigid chassis and the forks come very stiff stock. Other things to do when you get to it. - Ignition remap from www.themotolab.com- Pipe - Oversized front rotor They're

Thank you all for taking the time to help. I'll try a few of these things this weekend!

By snapping the lever, do you mean to pull the brake pedal all the way down and then release instead of pulling it down and slowly return it to resting position?

That's how I did it, but I emptied the system first. Now i'm stuck.

That makes sense. Thank you for your help, Paw Paw.

Banjo bolt is tight - won't budge when I try to move it by hand.

This is true - it doesn't pull things up. However, when it comes to liquid and air, the liquid is more dense and moves to the bottom while air is less dense and moves to the top. Kind of like blowing bubbles in your drink - the bubbles don't stay at ... more »

I tried some out and it lasted 2 hours and left behind a bunch of sticky crap. Not for me.

Paw Paw, I thought the purpose of the reverse bleed was to work with gravity. The air bubbles will move up and out of the line as you fill it from the bottom with fluid. Not so?

Specs: 2014 RMZ 450 65 hours Stock brake system Dot 4 fluid Decided it was time to change the front pads and bleed the front/rear brakes on the bike. I started with the rear and decided to do the "reverse bleed" method. Here was my process: 1. Remove ... more »

Were you one of the guys on the '17 Honda out at 3P when I was out there? Got to drive down for Christmas. I love that place.

Bro, it was an upgrade from my styrofoam cooler and packing tape that I was using before.

I guess a helmet might be what TG was talking about. I wouldn't know about either brand, I wear Arai.

Reply to How Long Between Wins for You? 12/30/2016 12:45 PM

Only think I've ever won was an arena cross lcq. Bunches seconds, thirds, and so on, but no wins. Frankly, I'd be surprised if I did snag a win until I move to the vet class.

I used to wear TLD exclusively, but they didn't have a single color way I liked between 2013 and 2016, so I sampled around a bit. The fox stuff I bought on a whim stole my business. I'm not sure what part of your kit is providing superior "protection" ... more »

Have you tried the Fox gear? I've used Fly, Answer, TLD, Thor, and MSR and none of them have been as quality as my Fox stuff. The Flexair gear is incredible.

Yup. All it takes is one DNF or a couple of bad rounds for Dungey to be out of reach.

Throw an oversized rotor on it, send the ECU off to www.themotolab.com, and get the suspensiom revalved to suit you (just like you would on any of the their bikes), and the Suzuki is a great bike. Spend a few more bones on an exhaust system to shave some weight ... more »
