Dual Sport adventurers can choose to make their machines much more capable for extended off-road excursions. Simple mods will make even a mild-mannered ma- chine, like a 250 dual sport, a better bike. You can look for more adventure rides in upcoming issues of DIRT ILLustrated. Lubes & Rubes We used Maxima Oils in our Yamaha and Kawi dual spotters. Starting with their 10w40 Syn- Blend4 ($10.50 per Liter) in the engines. We also ran Maxima Coolanol ($15.50 for 1.89 Liter) for the radiator, as well as their Synthetic chain guard ($6.95 per 6 fl. oz.) and some of their SC1 Clear Coat ($9.50 per 12 fl. oz.) which helps keep the luster on our machines. Pack it In & Out… One item you absolutely need when doing adventure rid- ing of any kind, is more ways to carry your stuff with you. Extended trips require more of everything. We used a host of add on carry alls from several companies to outfit our WR and KLX 250’s for the long haul.
