Passenger foot peg

Anybody have the left passenger foot peg they would like to part with? I was cleaning my chain today and it just broke off. Shoot me a PM

Skid Plate

I see a few skid plates for under $100. Procycle and Kientec each sell one. Are these items quality items or should I spring for the more expensive ones available? Pros and cons for ones that are available.

I've never seen a two toned headlight surround. Not to say it doesn't exist but I'd just paint yours to your liking.

I believe that's a large white decal on the headlight cowl. I put a Acerbis headlight on my KLX and it came with a big white decal that looks just like the above pic.

Correct. It was stock on the 2007 DR. Should be able to order it.


Edit: Looks like it's on the 06 as well -- and maybe some other years too

Yeah... I'll paint it myself - I'm not paying $40 for a piece of tape

Or if anyone has one that they havent used, I'll take that. I'll give you a fair price
