Hi. New poster but I have gained a lot of knowledge from this forum over the years. So thanks for that. I owned a DRZ400S a few years ago and enjoyed it greatly. Had to sell when we moved. I am now looking at DRZ's again. I live in the woods, and near forest service. I want a DRZ that is all it can be off road but manageable for an occasional 1 hr commute to work (on the highway 75 mph). I'm really leaning toward the Kicker as it should be no problem to plate it here (Idaho). Because of it's higher compression, cams, FCR carb, and lighter weight it appeals to me vs. upgrading an S model. I would also consider an E but have a line on a clean kicker at the moment. Question: Will there be any problem getting the necessary electrical working for street use without a battery? any other thoughts or insights would be appreciated.
