What year DRZ400S? Any difference

Recommended Posts

I am planning on getting a DRZ400s in the next month (going to part with my street bike and transition to the fun stuff!!)

There is a guy selling a 2000 model cheap. It's in really good shape, has some basic mods on it and only 3,000 miles. I've heard that the bikes have basically stayed the same over the past 7 years (except decals).

Have there been any major changes (I heard rumor that in 02 there was a significant suspension improvement)? Would you opt for a newer model or would you snatch up a good deal on a 2000?

Appreciate the help!!

You are correct that they made a major suspension change in 2002. The earlier models had cheaper forks, etc. The newer bikes have the same suspension as the dirt-only DRZ's.

Buy the 2000 if it's really, really cheep.

The DRZ 400S did use the 400E suspension in 02. There is not a huge difference in suspension just more adjustment that help but nothing to right home about.
