I have a 05 DRZ400SM --

I was messing around with the speedo pushing buttons
and the overall mileage has dispersed from the speedo screen -

Now I can not get mileage to come back --

Is there some combo of buttons or something I need to push??--
--Thanks--Jay--

if you add a slipper clutch, great brakes and suspension, and about 30 more HP to your list, it sounds like you're dreaming of a ktm 690smc

I don't think you'd want to race a DRZ in a 450 class either, and I own a DRZ... too bad its just such a gutless bike, if it wasn't so damn reliable i wouldn't be on it! oh well, its only a matter of time before i get another supermoto with more jam again.

Everyone hates on the drz so much, but do a few mods, and they will hang pretty good.

Oh I agree with you, its all down to the rider really. I love the reliability of the bike and do have a ton of fun on it as you basically just put gas in it and go, its just that I just miss having the extra 20 HP jam under the tank from my old CRF450r because you can just do so much with the extra power on tap; when the front wheels dropping and almost on the ground at the end of a wheelie, for example, that extra power will allow you to just gently roll on the throttle and effortlessly bring it right back up to whatever angle you want; the DRZ just doesn't have the same grunt to do it as you really have to manhandle it to compensate for that lack of power. I ride with some fast guys on much more powerful SMs but once you get the taste of the extra power and learn what you can do with it on a SM, you'll find everything lesser to still be fun, just not as fun... and you just can't get that taste out of your mouth for more power...
