I'm not familiar with what bars are on the S

I'm going to assume you've checked, and have 7/8" bars and want to swap to 1 1/8" fat bars. If that's the case, then you need new risers for fat bars and a fat bar. What one, hell I dunno there's lots of selection for bars.

There are 2 options for you.  Risers that convert from 7/8 to 1 1/8.  Several companies make them in different heights.  This is the cheapest way since the upper triple clamp has the bar mounts as part of the casting.  I ran risers like this for awhile.  The ones i ran were Moose brand and you can find them at any MC supply site like the Thumpertalk store.

The other option is to replace the upper triple clamp.  I did this because i wanted to get my bars farther forward for more knee room on the track.  I used a ZETA brand topclamp (SX is the one for fat bars) that I got from WheelingcycleSupply.  The bad thing is that the triple clamp is a little taller and the stock S/SM metal headlight brackets that go over the forks wont fit.  I bent the stock bracket a little and flipped the rubber dampers over and got it to work just fine, but it takes some muscle to get it right.  This gives you the bar mounts that are removable and gives you multiple forward/back positions.

As far as moving the ignition switch, you just have to drill holes on the stock bracket and either mount it off the bolts for the upper triple clamp or fabricate a new bracket.  There are dozens of threads about this in the DRZ400 forum here on Thumpertalk.  Just use the search.  There are so many ways to do it.  I ended up running a Koso speedo when i converted to SM so i made a new gauge mount that my Ign switch bolted to.

Other companies make the same thing, a few make something a little different.  Fasst makes what they call "Rox" that goes from 7/8 to 1 1/8 but a little different.
