Just bought a DRZ400S 09 today...

Recommended Posts

Can't find any rad guard that says it will fit the 09... can anybody confirm it will fit? Same thing for skid plate and covers... Thanks!

All years of S are the basically the same with the exception of pre 2002 models not having "E" model suspension and some updates to the auto cam chain tensioner. Even on the new '09 I would replace the spring loaded chain stretching auto job with the manual one. Lots of threads on that subject on the board.

You are cleared to start the modfest. 👍

congrats!!!! I'm gonna assume its the exact same bike as a 08. I just bought a new 07 because it was $300 cheaper than the 08 and I was told the only difference was the graphics.

Thanks guys! I'm on my way to the dealer. Will have some pictures shortly... :worthy: I will probably wait until the warranty expires before I mod it but I have printed Mr. Metalhead201's reply and I have put it in a safe place! 👍

Congrats, I was at a local dealer today and they had a white 09 on the floor. I'm just not sure about the new graphics but it's still a sweet bike.
