I have been scouring the internet and the lads at Suzi have kept it pretty secret.

When you find one let us know.

There is an optional side stand for lowered Djebels or you can cut and modify the o/e one
Dunno that you can do that - if you look at the pictures, the bike has handlebar risers fitted AND has the forks pulled up almost to the bars. So the front is already lowered more than is possible with a std bike. You have to be careful about the wheel bottoming out on the triple clamps if you go too radical with pull-through.

That thing will be seriously nose-down if the shock is std, and seriously out of balance front/rear. It will be very quick steering and potentially unstable.

The DR650s have a similar dual-mount for the rear shock, but the forks are adjusted by moving an internal spacer limiting travel. Hence no issues with wheel-to-triple clearance. It would be worth investigating if the XC offers something similar.

Not on mine, only one shock mounting point. And there was bugger-all room under the handlebars to pull the forks through. It had the usual couple of marks most off-road bikes have for varying the pull-through to suit the terrain, at 2 & 4mm or thereabouts.

Sorry i never noticed the front had already been lowered....and well below the factory markings....in that state it should definately be nose down

Personally i would ditch the risers and put the forks back to standard,you can see the different ride height markings on the forks here..

Sounds vaguely familiar. Does the bike have a cut-out switch on the side stand or has it been removed?

Is there something wrong with the bike or are you merely curious?

Well, after wailing and gnashing of teeth (plus cash) I have my DRZ up and running.

Back story: posted an ad in local classified looking for dirtbike. Didn't care if it needed work.

I picked this one up for 300 bucks. mostly complete that supposedly had an electrical problem after PO had tried to jump start it with a truck and motor running.

Long story short, I had to replace the stator. I have had it for a while but just finally got around to replacing the stator yesterday.

It's an '01, all stock but has a Yosh pipe on it. Now I have to do some odds and ends, replace the rear tire pretty soon and recover the seat.

Haven't ridden it yet, but it sounds pretty good on my lift and seems to shift through all the gears well. The top end sounds very quiet but I'm gonna pull the valve cover and check the valves anyway.

I'm excited again about this thing and should be riding before long.

I know these pics stick, but I wanted to share some anyway. don't want to hear it about my messy garage.....I know


Anyone have a sprocket cover they don't want?

Thanks. If I had it to do over again, I probably would've passed. This thing has been a headache.

Of course, hearing that twin cam rev freely and rap at me makes me think it wasn't so bad.....

By the way, thanks for your help earlier. I now have an extra CDI unit. I'll check out that website.
