Thanks dasvis (Toolkit q&a)

Cheers dasvis. That's a good thread on a general toolkit. Hadn't missed much in mine, but it's got a couple of good extras I'll now include. Nice pick-up.

New tires and a larger tank. After you ride for awhile you'll figure out what else is needed. Enjoy!

These are my second set. I think the first set went 5 or 6K. I ride alot of slab with mine and I figured they would be roughter than the deathwings but do about the same on the street. I didnt ride much gravel with the wings but the TKC's seem do good in gravel.

Sorry for just giving a link, but this thread will explain it far better than I can.

It's actually a fairly important fix that you should do immediately to save yourself much grief down the road.

I just sold my R1 for a slightly used DRZ400 also. My friends thought I was crazy for doing it, but the DRZ is so versatile. I can uturn the DRZ better than a bicycle. it's less fatiguing for me also in town traffic.

I'm not aware of any suzuki street bike which has wheels compatible with a DRZ.

No wheels from street bikes are a direct bolt on, but many do it with GS 500 wheels. It requires machine work though.

Anybody have a spare magneto cover for an s model that they would like to sell for less then 50 bucks? I broke mine and don't have enough money for a stock replacement ($150). I normally wouldn't post something like this but I'm in a bind.

Nope, sorry-I bought the bike used and it came with a yosh pipe and didn't come with the stocker pipe. I'm pretty sure that if I pay you for it it'll be enough for a stock exhaust though?

Have one sitting in my shed doing nothing. It fits my 2009 400S, never used and if you want it you can buy it plus shipping. Cheap.

Send me a PM.
