DRZ…to race or not to race?!

Well it appears the market for good quality 2nd hand bikes has dried up these days, as I couldn’t secure more than £1000 for my DRZ! The reason I was selling it was to enter the remaining H&H races with the Cotswolds Enduro Club.

So I’m going to do something which may be quite unwise, and enter it into the Trail Bike Class as it is. 🙂

Some changes I need to make are…

  • Remove indicators and mirror
  • Fit a set of enduro tyres (Trelleborg’s do the job)
  • Larger rear sprocket 44t up to 46t (I’ll leave the front as is for now)
  • Stiffen up suspension settings

It’s a heavy bike to take racing, so I’m not expecting any miracles. Just so long as I finish in one piece, though if I can take a scalp or two off my mates on their enduro bikes I’d be quite happy! Details to follow.
