Endless Money Pits

June 27th, 2012 I was taking my 2001 Suzuki DR-z400s for a relaxing ride through the forest when I hit some gravel on a corner and crashed. At the end of the video I said I had an hour ride home, but about 10 miles down the road I noticed that damaged handguard was missing a screw. I went back for it even though I thought there was no chance I'd find it mixed in with the gravel, but I did! Made my ride home a lot longer, but I'll never forget that day.

Note: Watch out for gravel.

Here's an update on an issue I was having with the Quick Start adjustable external voltage regulator I installed in a previous video. The issue was not due to the voltage regulator, it was due to a bad ground in my Jeep. The company was very helpful in pinpointing the cause of the issue for me.
