I buy my parts online through Manchester Honda/KTM's website (hondaktm.com). They give a good online discount. You can also choose to pick your items up in store and avoid shipping charges. I've never had a problem with them.

If anyone needs anything picked up/held from them, I'm like a quarter-mile away

My DRZ is almost looking like Robs. Another day or so and it will be in a in the half-bike situation as well. I'll be repacking the exhaust, installing new swing arm bearings and straightening the rear subframe (maybe find an e-model sub frame on the ebay?) which is why it'll be torn down that far..
In the next week or so I plan to also install new grips and throttle tube, chain rollers, tires (if I can afford em), check the front sprocket, clean air filter, etc. Tonight I installed new clutch and throttle cables.. I figured I could use a weekend or two off the bike after hitting that tree last Sunday..

Hey Al, what is the advantage of (maybe find an e-model sub frame on the ebay?) ?

Bummer about the bike being apart, I was hoping to ride this Sun in our area, glad your feeling ok after the crash!

Just a few pounds lighter.. no passenger foot pegs.. and it doesnt extend as far back.. probably saves 4 or 5 lbs. I have a perfectly good S model subframe in my garage,, I still may use it someday to make my DRZ more luggage friendly. Also you should be able to find an E subframe for less than half an S subframe because everyone wants to move from an E to a S subframe for the added luggage strength.

DRZ sub frames

MR. T nailed it.. The E model subframe was a bit light and not designed for a rear rack / tool bag, etc.. I didn't think it was a 4-5 pound difference though; now I'm really thinking about that option since my rear sub-frame is a bit askew at the moment..

my leg's pretty good. Bruised to on both sides but 80% on the right.. The thing I discovered after a couple of days was that I must have strained or in some way injured a muscle/ligament/tendon on the inside of my right leg, groin to knee, since that's been the lingering issue more than the normal bruises.. I'll be 100% before the final 2012 Pachaug Camp-n-Ride though!

4 or 5 might be optimistic.. but I thought I read it somewhere.

It's all part of riding. Glad you're ok.

Ducati MonoPosto subframe (single seat) is only 4 lbs lighter than a BiPosto (2 seater) and the Mono is made of Aluminum while BiPosto is steel,

If both E and S subbies are steel there might not even be a pound difference
