A man, a shed, a welder, a pipe bender and a bunch of hand tools = a satisfying way to spend a weekend =)

Nice fabrication skills mate, very tidy result

Is $3,400 too much to pay for a clean 06 S with 5k on the odometer? It's got a full yosh pipe and jet kit, otherwise stock.

Well, with Scrapheap Adventure Ride and a few other projects out of the way the DRZ400e frame now has pride of place in the bike lift.

First thing will be fitting the new steering head bearings and the bolting all the goodies up.

The motor have a 4mm stroker crank and a 4mm over bore piston kit. 462cc :)

I will be running the stock 'e' cams and FRC, but the inlet ports will be flowed. Stock e exhaust at this stage with an end cap. I have fluidyne radiators and a rekluse cluch and left hand rear brake kit for it too.

I dont know if its worth another build thread here or not??

Pezz :)

Don't you already have a build thread for that bike? In Thumpers or the Regional forums?

I enjoyed your other skunkworks builds, so when I saw that one I was excited, then it kinda went away, I figured you just had your hands full. Glad to know it's going to be resurrected!

Luggage Racks, DRZ400S

Anyone out there have plans to make luggage racks for the DRZ. Or want to sell a pair?

Can't help it, I am frugal and don't want to spend $250 for a set. I have a set of soft bags from Wolfman I want to switch from my Dakar to the DRZ.

This will be posted in the flea market as well.

Cheers!!!

Just an FYI on the airbox fasteners, SunDog on Thumpertalk does have a few sets left. He's selling them for $18, shipped, for a set of three, it's the fasteners, washers, and locking star washers, in case anyone else needs some.
