Need lower first gear for more serious off road use
I'm heading for a vacation in Colorado this summer and will not be riding on the highway but do want a much lower first gear for climbing and dirt and rock back trails. I'll be riding with my sons and they are running Suzki dr 350's.

Participating in fun activities for kids in Canada can be a lifetime memory for many teenagers. They will go back home with new friendships made and new things what they have learnt. You must have different-different ideas on kids' activities.

Hydraulic push rods mean that your valves will not be out of adjustment (unless engine has been modified from factory specs) so I think you may need to increase the viscosity of the oil, run straight 50 oil as recommended by H-D if your in a climate that remains over 60 degrees, good luck.
The fuel to oil ratio is 50 to 1. Both mixture screws will need to set somewhat richer, about 1/8 to 1/4 turn each CCW. Proper setting for H is so that a warm engine running full throttle will 4-stroke, but 2-stroke immediately when cutting. L should be set so that the engine idles fairly smoothly, but will 'follow-the-throttle' when accelerated. These mixture screws have special 'D' shaped heads that prevents owner tampering--only authorized service agencies have the proper tool (I made my own D head driver!). Hope this helps!
Decide if top speed is going to be achieved with the gearing as is, or if you need to gear it up. Most road riders will go one tooth bigger on the primary sprocket if there is room. This will gear the bike taller and let you cruise at a lower RPM. (Better milage and easer on you and the bike) Other than that you should decide how much you'll ride it on and off road. Get tires that match your riding style. 90% on 10% off, 70% on 30% off 50/50 and so on. Very important to have tires that stick on the road. Big knobbies look cool but are quite squirrly even on dry pavement and much more so on wet roads. Remember when picking out tires, if you fall in the dirt you probably won't get run over by a semi.
