New Owner

Traded in my RM for a DRZ400S. I have put 200 miles on it this week and love it so far.

Besides new tires, what mods should I do first.


Sock, great choice. I love having the freedom of hitting the road when I want to without having to worry about cops.

Traded in my RM250 for my DRZ400E



Congrats on the new bike :D

If you read the signatures below the peoples posts on here you can't go wrong, some read like a wish list (bring a lunch when you read burned's) :)

First mod i did was to unbolt as much unnecessary stuff from the bike as possible and I then bolted some stuff back on to make it more crash-proof for instance skid plate with case protection would be #1

Happy trails


The only complaint I have so far about the bike is they should offer this color in the U.S.


Welcome! check out mnelson's page:

I recommend getting the armor first, then do the jetting. Don't bother with the exhaust esp if you ride public land (loud pipes=less land). Then keep checking this board. I've learned tons from these guys.

check the modification thread.i brought it to the top for signature is there now! :)

      I totaled my DRZ400S last year, did a good bit of work to it and finally got it running.. I want to turn this into my full stunt bike.
      I have read before about people buying a 2nd stock rear caliper & bracket - then cutting and welding it to the existing bracket, then just running a handbrake master, and a hose to the 2nd caliper. 
      Has anyone done this before? Defiantly seems to be the cheapest route to go (staying away from the junction valve / 1 master cyl. & 1 caliper setup.)
      Looking for opinions, pros/cons, and info if anyone has gone this route.. If it seems too much of a risk or hassle I guess im gonna have to spend the $500/$600 to get a legitimate setup 
      any and all comments are appreciated - except trolls.. you better be funny as hell if your gonna troll.
      Thank you all!

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??
