Hello Forum Members, This is my first post. I read a few threads before creating an account and was impressed by the number of knowledgeable day to day riders here so I thought I'd ask for some recommendations on a few service items for a 2009 DRZ400. It is a great bike and reliable daily rider doing about 500 miles a month (about 95% street riding with occasional off roading to get around car block ups, etc) since June so I'm reviewing the following items: 1) Tires: any ideas from daily street riders what works good for a stock bike mostly on the street, with marginally acceptable off road performance? 2) Brake pads: still has the stock ones on it which work ok but it would be nice to scale up. I would prefer pads that don't chew the discs too much but also brake better. 3) Drive Chains: also stock, but I'm guessing there might be a better option? 4) Any thought on how many miles one could expect from a DRZ that was maintained well and not raced too often? Its a stock bike with about 7k miles on it currently with highway cruising in the 60s to 70s about 50% of the time with city street riding for the other half. Any feedback would be much appreciated. Thanks!
