What I did was to move my controls away from the grips (i.e. towards the clocks), then they fit w/o hitting the guards.

Mine touch and its not an issue. My guards are horizontal and the levers point down not quiet 45 degrees so they sometimes touch the bottom of the ali insert when the vibrations cause them to rattle but usually they don't touch. I usually point my levers down a bit so my fingers rest on them comfortably when I'm standing up. My levers are still the stockers, thanks to the guards.

I would be interested in taking a look at those articles. I just picked up a DRZ250 today in Cambodia for $400. So its my new toy, I had an 99 Honda AX-1 for light off road use but after I shook all of the plastic off on a few trail rides, I decided I needed something a bit more stout.

Looking forward to getting more info about this bike, from what I have read everyone says it should be fine for trail riding, so I think I made the right choice...

So the DRZ is at the shop since it was bought with engine damage and the Djebel that was sitting next to it in neglected shape was $400 as well. But it has a nasty stutter and stumble mid to high rpm. So, why the hell not. I bought the Djebel too for $350. I will post pics of the DRZ when she gets back from the shop...$200 for a complete rebuild...

Tall damn motorbike....I am 6'4 and this thing is easily 3'5 to the seat...came with a set of risers and a fake yoshi exhaust and the stocker as well.....the fake yoshi seems to help it with its stumble which I am guessing is maybe a jet issue? It has like green scrub pads for cleaning dishes as an air filter...I ordered an OEM so I am going to see if that fixes the issue....People do strange things to engines...

If you look at the lower shock mount in the picture you will see it has a second hole...using this lowers the rear of the Djebel
If you undo the pinch bolts on the triple clamps you can slide the forks upwards and you will see they have markings to match the rear ride height

There is an optional side stand for lowered Djebels or you can cut and modify the o/e one

Happy to report that we solved the stutter issue this afternoon, rebuilt and cleaned the carb one of the plastic floats was missing. Dear god its like a whole new machine. Runs like a whip and feels like a pillow when landing! Took it out and hit every single hole in the road and every bump that could provide some air. This Suspension is awesome. Going to wait until the DRZ is ready and then take the two on a good 2-3 day trip.....The DRZ250 somehow improved on this machine? Holy crap. I cant wait! I spent all day pounding around on this thing after a few fixes. Still waiting on a legit air filter, but other then that...its alive and doing well after being neglected. Ordered a new face too...the big light doesn't do it for me. Will keep you guys posted. Thanks for the info Karl. Time to find some real riding gear...fixed the gauges....6700kms on the clock when the odo cable snapped..I wonder how long ago that was....
