Airhawks are nice till they get a hole. I am using a Seat Concepts foam and cover. I ordered the tall foam and I couldn't be happier. It is more comfortable than a Rick Mayer comfort seat I had, which looks wierd anyways. It is also more comfortabale than a Stearns ATV seat cover that Wallmart sells. They run about 160 dollars, worth every penny.

I second the recommendation for the Seat Concepts seat. I had a Corbin but I'm one of the folks it just doesn't work for. The Seat Concepts is super comfy. They also make a low seat which compromises some foam thickness.

I to have the Seat Concepts and yes it is better than the stock seat but "super comfy" is going a little to far.

Is is a RDL? No, but leaps and bounds better than the stocker. After all it is a dual sport bike.

I have an Airhawk that I bought for my Bandit, and yes they are good, but it is too wide for the DRZ seat and it folds over the sides. Perhaps a narrower one would fit, but in the meantime I bought the Seatconcepts low kit and it seems much better than the stock seat but because we are in the depths of winter I havent ridden it yet.

Where does this hose go?

Stock carb for a 2003 DR-Z400S

I suffer from CRS.

The hose comes out of the carb.

Where does this hose go?



Another view of the hose

E/K bikes come with 14/47 and I ran 14/51 on my E. I went plenty fast. DRZ motors have little trouble with a few rpm.

Cycle Gear had their Bilt line always heavily discounted. You can get a brand new jersey and pants for $50-60 total.

Since there is talk of gearing. I have an SM and I dropped a tooth in the front, so now it is 14/41. Totally worth it if you do urban and back roads(I commute daily, 35-45 mph posted roads, and touch 60mph in a couple of spots, but I don't hoon it up). The pull off the bottom is better, up hill accel is better, makes dicing it up in traffic a more confident experience. It can still hit an indicated 70 but is pretty topped out.
And if you want to hot the highway for a trip, it takes about 15 minutes to swap the cog and adjust the chain.
