Tire pressure ? 25-ish. Don't know if this is what you're supposed to run but it feels good there to me.
Tires ? Pilot Powers. They work good and last a long time but I don't push it much on the street anymore.
Brake pads ? Yes, my DRZ is equipped with some sort of brake pads.

there's another more recent thread where we talked about DRZ gearing too, but I couldn't find it.

Gearing ?

I don't own a DRZ but this has worked well for me over the years.

Gear so that top speed is limited while sitting upright and pulls to the top while tucked.

This has always offered the best gear for the highway IMO with out over revving the motor.

If your looking to be a re-tard. bigger in the back. Small front sprockets eat chains.

I'm sure these fellas can give you real re-tarded #'s

What sucks is just one tooth at the back can put the rear wheel in a bad way with the adjusters.and chain length.

at a 15 45 ratio.one tooth front will be the same as 3 rear This might mean a new chain.

I guess your best bet would be buy one piece at a time for testing and buy new chain last.

if you do the math you can figure the % difference between the two top gears at say 50 mph.

With that % you can buy a sprocket set that offers the same % overall increase in top gear.

I'll try that again.At 50 mph in top gear your rpm is?at 60 mph? at 70mph?If your bike can't double that RPM because of wind your at max gearing for that speed and rpm.

if your bike runs into top rpm a gear below top gear because of wind it won't pull any more gear.Top is of sorts an over drive then.

If you can pull the rev limiter a gear down. I'd go with more top end gear.

Bill's quick-reference quide to DRZ gearing:
YMMV


16/38 SM wheels - Extended hi-way use
15/38 SM wheels - commuting
15/41 SM wheels - general street use
15/44 SM wheels - faster SM track. Dirt wheels - ADV type riding.
15/47 SM wheels - tight track. Dirt wheels - dirt roads.
14/47 Dirt wheels - woods/MX
13/47 Dirt wheels - indoor MX, rocks, pulling tree-stumps.

What did the FrankenDizzer Run?

Ran strong and pulled well out of corners
