The DRZ Gets a Big Brake

in howto, test


I was tight on cash when I first did the DRZ supermoto conversion. After blowing big bucks on wheels, tires and suspension upgrades, I opted out of upgrading the brakes. I had never had any problems with the DRZ's stopping power when it was in enduro configuration so I thought, how important are big brakes anyway? Besides, who needs to stop? I, was wrong! It seems the stock brakes were just fine for overpowering spindly little knobbies on the road. Slap a fat gummy street tire on there, and it's another story. Stoppies seemed to be easier with the knobbies, but with the shorter height of the street tires, the center of gravity of the DRZ was lower. Stoppies were nearly impossible with the stock brake. Enter, the EBC upgrade kit.

The O'Neal Typhoon enduro jacket comes in any color you want as long as it's black. Yeah, I know, that was bad. But it's a good jacket.
