Looks to be in good shape.  Be careful if you try to take it out,  they are pretty fragile.

Ok thank you. While i have peopke here what maintenence should i do while i have things off? I want to take more off and give it a gooooood clean but im a little worried about ripping more things off lol. Ive heqrd grease the swingarm and linkage. Where would i grease and what do i need to take off? Sorry everyone im kind of a newd when it comes to this especially the drz but the best way to learn is do it yourself. I also have the clymer manual on hand

I would suggest you invest in some anti seize for the threads on the exhaust bolts.

You can also use it where the header pipe slides into the muffler.

I find more header leaks from folks that try and get away with reusing a header gasket than not.

 

Most do not even know they have a leak.

 

It's cheap, easy to replace, is designed to be compressed at first install..... once installed, heated and cooled repeatedly, the gasket turns hard and not very pliable.. making leaks common at reuse.
