Someone makes wide footpegs, in normal, low and high...i have the normal, check wheelingcyclesupply...forget the brand but theyre only $40, might help a bit.

ATV or some high bend bars...

I've wondered about lowered pegs for the DRZ.

5 mm lower, not much, but every little bit, helps right

Thanks Focal. I did check out WCS a while back and they only list medium for the DRZ. I've sent them an email to see if any of the low pegs might fit.
I have risers and CR Hi bend bars, but it's not enough. If I go much higher I think I'll have cable issues (cables already rerouted). I like the idea of getting a better standing position whilst not rising my COG. My feet would still be well above the bashplate, so I'm not worried about foot clearance issues. I'm also more into twin track / adventure then single track racing, so again, not concerned about clearance

I have Barrisers bar-forward risers and Pivotpegs, together they work for me as they do what you are looking for.
Just thought I would pass that on

I'm curious, does anyone know where I can get DRZ lowering links around 1/2-3/4"? I'm getting my seat redone at the end of this month and am trying to decide whether to lower the bike to compensate (I just wanted more seat-to-peg room for my legs). All the links I've found have been 1"+ and I'd like to keep it less.

Any other Suzuki links for other bikes maybe do slightly less low reductions?

Hi Sarah, there are a couple of companies making adjustable links for the DRZ.

Speaking of lowing links.. Iv been running some for a while but keep reading it combined with dropping the triple trees screws up the handling. The rear wheel travel doesn't stop before it hits the fender.. I also think it drops the rear more changing everything and making it uncomfortable while standing.

Tires

Ok everyone I am getting close to needing a new rear tire for my DRZ 250. Right know I have just a non DOT tires on it but I am riding the road and need to get a set of DOT. I use it for alot of commuting and trail ride on the weekends so I have been looking at some Kenda's 270, Shinko 244. These tires are still aggresive but wont wear out as quick on the pavement as the knobbies. What do yall think. I am open to suggestions.

FS: Custom DRZ400 Plastics with Vinyl Graphics

I bought a used 2007 DRZ400S and the previous owner had bought black plastics and then had them vinyl wrapped. I did not care for this look so I put the bike back to stock yellow plastics.

I am wondering if anyone is interested in the set:

* Front Fender
* Read Fender
* Headlight Cowl
* Gas Tank
* Right Side Cover
* Left Side Cover
* Air Box Cover
* Right Air Shroud
* Left Air Shroud

There are no fasteners, washers, bolts, petcock or gas cap included. You would need a complete DRZ to swap out the fasteners to install this set.

I am thinking $200 O.B.O. Shipped to the lower 48? I would rather someone use it, than it sit in a box in my garage.

There are some signs of wear on the side covers, etc, as well as the vinyl has some bubbles under it along the front fender. So this is not in perfect condition, however if you want a new look, or just some spare plastics it might be what you’re looking for.

Thanks,
Chuck

Shinko 244 "golden boys" are better profiles for street quieter and smoother running.

The easiest tire I've ever mounted also. :

Love my 244's!

Seems to be a perfect dual sport tire, and can't beat the price.
