Can anyone give me some advice about what models this might be from, and would they fit my 2003 E.
cheers

LED turn signals

My dad and I recently went on a little ride and well we broke a turn signal on his bike. Figured this is the perfect oportunity to replace the stockers with LED turn signals. I did a search here but had a hard time finding the info I was looking for. I was hoping people would chime in and let me know what kind on LED turn signals they've put on their Z's and how they like them (how easy to mount, how well they've held up, etc...).

Thanks.

This is what I did...

Zeta Probend Handguards and XC Plastics with Flashers
Edge II Taillight (with universal mount, which broke, installed the metal DRZ one but have no pics, it looks the same)
DRC LED Flashers Type 586
I never installed resistors nor a new flasher relay, they're running quick.

Tank panniers

Happy holidays guys. Thread has been slow for a little while here.

I might try some riding/camping trips this coming season.......have to look forward to something this snowy season.

Below is my DRZ with Acerbis tank. What, if any, tank panniers do people like to use. Preferably ones that will work with this tank.

I really like the white DR-Zs. It's pretty cool that we can change their colors so easily, but I haven't seen white plastic kits available for them. I guess it would be from Suzuki. I might upgrade to a big tank eventually and figure that would be a good time to go for a color change.

Only white parts they offer are fenders. Seems like the plastic mfg's could squirt a run of white plastic through the molds, or any color in the rainbow for that matter.

Who is a good source for suspension tuning in- or around Atlanta, GA? I need to get my new 400S re-sprung for my considerable heft before I start throwing too many other farkles at it. Thanks.

DRZ 400 S is the street legal version of the E, plated from factory. Dual sport.

DRZ 400 SM is super motard version.

A lot of people add the K when refering to the DR-Z400 to avoid confusion, but the K is actually used in the year designation. For instance, my 2006 S model is technically a DR-Z400SK6. A 2007 SM is a DR-Z400SMK7. Is this making sense? To confuse things a little, a 2000 kick start model is technically a DR-Z400K, but only the 2000 model year kicker. tanks for clarification ptgarcia
