I reckon I should be able to become a part time US citizen, I spend enough money supporting the US economy buying motorbike bit's and pieces.

Thanks man travel one state east then , i'll show u some terrains galore. During half way that ride my tires were shut i was planning on use them to the end. I just got new rubbers put on this morning now i am ready for more ferocious rides ... Btw my trail tech Striker worked for 45 miles (off-rd) and then stopped reading mph. I called trail tech they send me a new speed sensor.

I weigh 100kg (220lbs) in the buff Just had my suspension re-done and I chose 6.0 rear and .50 front with a 28l tank. Once the revalving was done (2 stage, supple and stiff ) the suspension tuner commented that the bike would sit higher and not sag so much with the modified valving and without the 28l tank the .50 springs may be a tad too hard.....

Guns.. let's not go there hey....

Cheers,

Adrian

I weigh 218 lbs and run .58 fork springs and a 6.4 shock spring. No complaints and both sag measurements are correct.

I trimmed the ears off of the tiger windscreen and mounted the lower portion to the headlight mounts. I just need to come up with some upper mounts and then will paint it. Going to leave the upper portion clear and do the lower portion white to hide all the wiring.

Don't paint it, it looks great how it is!
How about some black plastic "shrouding" over the wires behind the screen?

DRZ400E Wheels Swap To DRZ400S

Inmates, I am running my DRZ400S in the upcoming Mexican 1000, I have access to a set of wheels from a pals DRZ400E, with rotors and the whole bit, can anyone tell me if its a direct swap on the front? I looked at the fiche and most of the parts are the same, but the hub, and rotor are different. If anyone has insight please share. Thanks - Johnny

Should be a direct swap. I put a set from an E on a friends SM with no issues, E to S should be even easier. Rotors and everything are the same size.

The rotors are a slightly different style, but dia. and bolt pattern are the same.
