6253 otd new sm?

Is 6253 OTD a good deal on a 06 SM? A 07 will only run me another 300?

Thats About What I Paid For My 2006.depending Where You Live And How Many Are Around Its A Fair Deal .but If The 07 Is Sitting Beside It And Ready To Go,i Would Think It Would Be A Little Cheaper For The 2006.if Not I Would Go With The 2007.

Keep in mind the 07 has better bars and some other goodies. You may want to try and talk them down a little more and get the 07.

Spend the $300 more on the '07. The bars and clamp are much, much better. You're going to replace the bars on the '06 and that's going to cost you $150 or more.

I got mine for $5900 otd in Cali. You should be able to do better in Ohio!!

my buddy got his 06sm out the door for 5400 and that was before the 07's were out....

It all depends on how many of them they have sitting around and the pressure to move the inventory. If you hit a big dealer with a boat load of SM's haggle until they let you walk out the door. Do this at a couple of dealers with tons of SM's and you will find the best price possible.

It takes some work, but I could have saved about 300 bucks had I known what I was doing at the time.

I am starting to think its to high as well. I will have to go with vikto's advice, especially since he uses Delvac 1"THE MILLION MILE OIL" :thumbsup: They have 1 06 sm left and 5 07 on the way. maybe Ill wait till next seaon to see if the 450sm is true or not and by then I could probably pick up a low mileage used one. If they dealt me under $6,000 thought Id take it.

Sounds like your deal is right in the ballpark...

I'm in Los Angeles County...

...bought a '07 Black SM for exactly $6,499 out the door just last week, and am totally happy with it. :thumbsup:

The dealer had only three, one gone, one already spoken for to be picked up, and the one I bought on the spot. Took all of 30 minutes to buy it, get it loaded into the truck, and head back home.

There was a choice of an '06 for $6,200 at another dealer, but it was yellow and just a little too bright for my taste. So I willingly paid more for the *stealth super moto*.:lame:


Got my '06 s model for 6,000 otd. The dealer even threw in some Suz' posters, hats, stickers and such 'cause they forgot to charge the battery when I went to pick it up.n I had to wait a day to get it.

Get the '07. It just sounds better. :lame: It will be newer longer! :thumbsup:

Becides, the bars are a plus.


Shipping from IL shouldn't be too bad.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
