anything special for bleeding a brake system with ABS? have done it before on a non ABS bike, is it enough to bleed the system like normal, then ride and trigger the ABS a few times to force out old fluid, then re-bleed? bike's only an r3 so no linked brakes or other weird stuff

Are these bikes better than the DR650? Which one is the most pavement friendly (will commute more than go off-road)?

The Crf is also a dual sport. I guess the serrow is it's only opponent, then?

@TurtleCat
Some bikes use undertail exhausts because it's easier to keep the backpressure even between cyllinders when you have more pipe to play with

Production bikes are not among those though

@DeathDog
Serow is a dual sport also. If you want off road bikes that aren't really off road bikes look at the Versys 300 or whatever it's called.

But I don't see the point of it. If you want a low capacity all-round bike just go for a dual sport for crying out loud.

King_Martha
King_Martha

@VisualMaster
better to maneuver off road, a bit slower in your commute
I'll buy one because I already have to street bikes, DR650 is good too
I guess it depends on your commute and how much offroad you'll really be doing

@DeathDog
That's a dual sport, though.
And what's the G310GS? I thought the adventure bikes should be fast on the street, which the BMW is not going to be really
The only difference it has compared to the DR is a bit fairing around the top and a modern suspension
If you want a "real" "adventure" "bike", buy a big and even fatter one, if you're going to make compromises on the power you could also just not be a faggot and get a bike that's at least not pigfat and can do all the same

Evil_kitten

@VisualMaster
i dunno about the 650. i only have the 400. but its power/speed is enough for me. i dont really "dirt bike" it, just easy backroads, easy trails, 75% of time on pavment.
mine handles fine on the street, even up to highway speeds

Bidwell

@Garbage Can Lid
@King_Martha
What if I want a dual sport in which to can travel 500 miles on it? I guess it's possible in regular dual sports, but it sure as hell won't be comfortable.
And yeah, I guess there's the versys, although it's sort of shitty.

I have a dr650 and have ridden a drz 400. The difference is like 15lbs and a few hp, other than that I didn't notice much difference between them

@Bidwell
Any of the 650's or maybe just get a full sized adv like a vstrom or BMW gs

Sharpcharm
Sharpcharm

@Bidwell
And how would the G310GS be better than those dual sports? It's a single cylinder too, and the power to weight ratio is around the same
I guess the little fairing it has won't even do very much against wind, which isn't an argument really, I did 3000km trips with my naked bike, too, without having had problems with the wind

The fact that It weights 50kg less than the 650s?
Ah, I was talking about the DR350.
In my opinion there's still no argument to take the BMW over the DR350
Also, an XT600 is barely 160kg (the newer ones 180kg), a DR650 is ~180kg, that's not 50kg more than the BMW, more like 0-10kg

@Gigastrength
In my experience, the two boards that are the easiest to troll is /k/ and /n/.

/k/'s hobby (primarily firearms) is a very politicized one and their favorite things are always up on the chopping block for banning, so they are always on the edge. Make an easy facebook-mom-tier anti gun argument and you are guaranteed at least 5+ angry replies.

/n/ is filled with very insecure people, often comparing their selves with drivers. They think they are cool calling auto drivers "cagers" and shit, but make any insult to bicycles or public transportation, they completely lose their cool in a knee-joerk reaction and you're guaranteed a good thread. They get especially mad if I say Critical Mass is just glorified egoistic bullying of regular people that need to go to work in cars.

If it makes you feel better Japanese soldiers would kill themselves rather than surrender to ANZAC soldiers because they knew the ANZACs would torture them until they died anyway.

Germany shares borders with the former enemies and they had to reconcile as soon as possible.

Japan by the end of 1945 was basically alone as a modern power in East Asia, and they didn't give a fuck, frankly. Export industry (most to US and Europe) and being alone in the ocean isolated them even more for most of the 20th century.

Firespawn

@farquit
It’s ok we all start somewhere.By “small displacement” I’m referring to the size of the bikes engine. The 125 refers to the fact that the engine displaces 125 cubic centimeters of water, therefore it’s a 125cc engine, which is very small and likely a “thumper” or a one cylinder.

TurtleCat
TurtleCat

@Firespawn
I understand. Can you explain why 125cc bikes than can only displace 125cl of petrol can have different speeds?

I have seen 125cl bikes that go 50 miles per hour and some that can go 90 miles per hour

And yes, the cheapie HF electric impact wrench will work. You'll want it for the sprocket nut, and it MAY allow you to get the exhaust bolts off without breaking them. Better yet, try not to remove the exhaust.

The only way you can justify 4 strokes being better than 2 strokes is if you race half capacity 2 strokes against the 4 strokes.
a 2 stroke 250 shits all over any 4 stroke 250 and it always will.

Thanks, I’m gonna make sure I hang on to that video. this is the first bike ( or vehicle for that matter) I’ve ever worked on so every bit helps. I have a good conceptual understanding though and I got a 81 factory service manual in the original binder from an old Suzy dealership (pic related)

Skullbone

@lostmypassword
Nice. With luck, you won't have to go in to the engine at all (other than to set the valve clearance, which will be too tight, because suzuki specs an overly tight clearance.) You will need a tool from Motion pro to change the shims.

Replace the hoses, boil the carbs in water and lemon juice and it will probably run. The two-valve Suzuki's of that era were really rugged bikes.

RavySnake

@JunkTop
Check the valve clearance. Might be a tight ex valve.

Suzuki spec's .03-.08mm clearance, which is insane. That's ONE shim size. The intake would stay set for a while but the ex would often go tight in one maintenance interval, and people would often check it just about never. So the valves go a little tight, get hot, then wear until they are hanging open. Kawasaki spec'd 0.05 - 0.10m until '79, when they saw the light and changed the spec (on the same bikes!) to 0.05 -0.15mm.

Check it, see if an ex valve is hanging open. And feel free to set the exhaust valves to 0.10mm or so. Probably the last time you have to set them.

Definitely not a 250, but not fast. It's pretty happy around 55-60mph. I like it a lot. Many aftermarket parts/upgrades available. Bought mine off a close friend for cheap. No regrets purchasing whatsoever. I don't see dirt or gravel as much as I'd like. Does pretty well on roads though.

they're quirky to ride because they rock back and forth, they make a nice exhaust note in my opinion. Don't know much about reliability but they're easy as fuck to repair, they just have a niche dealer network so getting parts might be hard if you live in a rural area.

also the v7 puts out like 45 hp which is comical.

are you an actual driving enthusiast? because the only cars that compare to the fun of a motorcycle cost as much as a small house to buy and about as much to own, and are produced in small batches to drive prices up even more (and if they didn't do that, the companies making them would run out of cash due to low demand)

i'd trade all my bikes and my motorcycle endorsement for a 911 GTS with a six speed sequential dogbox installed or a mclaren F1 but that's not gonna happen

on the other hand, a CBR1000RR comes pretty damn close, and actually might be more practical as a DD than the mclaren.
