cool bike. Welcome to the forum!!

I just installed 440 BB with Hotcams and FCR39 on my DRZ and had its head rebuilt by Eddie himself (Sisneros speed works in CO). Happy to see another DRZ guy on this forum

post some pics of your beast

Sorry if I mislead anyone, my repair shop isn't my main job, I do that on the side to satisfy my addiction to bikes....I'm actually a paper maker at the Wauna mill, on #6 paper machine, we make Brawny paper towels....not so much fun but it pays good
