Pro Taper's ATV high bend bar will do the trick but you may not like the bend (had them on my KLR). I think you'd be better off with a moto bar and risers.

I think I'm going to order a Seat Concepts seat over the winter. I had one on my KLR and liked it.

I can ride my DRZ400E all day (and do, as the trails are nowhere near me either) and the only issue has been the seat. It will hum along at 90km/hr without a problem. I wish I'd unloaded that POS KLR...

I've ditched the bar end weights in favour of hand guards on every bike I've owned and never had an issue, including my '01 DRZ400E. If it really bothers you, try softer grips. I take it you have the...

It likely is. Check Thumpertalk as there are some threads on it there. That's what led me to swapping an '86 XR600 shock into my '86 XL250.

On my '86 (see post #2146) I run a 130/90-17 Kenda Trakmaster II. It fits without issue but I did have to remove the chain guard and fold over the chain guard mount (no loss to me).

As for tires, I always run Kenda Trakmaster II (K760). Really aggressive but street legal and they really don't wear too badly.
