Ok to add to my on any sunday review: I just took the bike out to a local OHV dirt park. Oh my ..it is a FREAKING awesome Dirt machine! I swear so Fun!. First gear first gas pull and the front wheel popped up off the ground and away I went - Lots of POWER and very fast. Best of all it's still light enough to throw around and manuever small trails. I'm so glad I didn't get one of the heavier 650 dual sports. The tires worked great, if the rear slipped a little on some of short quick turns in deep rutted dirt where maybe a full on knobbie would have stuck - So what all the more fun, whip that tail around. and then on the street the dual sport tires feel very safe. This is my perfect Dual sport bike - and I found out today that It's a great dirt bike - an Awesome power dirt machine - so happy! If your looking dual sport and want a great dirt bike too - This is the one Susuki DR-Z400S. :)

Was considering the Honda XL650, but didn't like the air cooled feature as engine tolerances are usually looser, previous post summed it up well, DR is better after having both. Theory being for me watercooled would produce greater longevity. Handlebar tingle does exist briefly when bike gets up on the cams, otherwise the main notice is when you get off the bike, gloves make a huge difference though. As far as maintenance other than oil changes and keep screws in check, the big one is valve adjustment. I know on air cooled bikes, valves are sometimes required to be inspected at 600 miles and every few thousand afterwards. This is where the DR dry sump stands out 15,000 miles before suggested it be checked. Nothing worst than buying a bike and pay a big maintence bill 600 miles after you just bought it.
