2001 DRZ400S Suspension Upgrade Question

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am looking to upgrade my 2001 S suspension and would like to know what the best way to go is.

1) Find E components

2) Upgrade S components with RaceTec Gold Valves & Sprints

3) Find RM components

4) ???????????

I weight about 230# and ride at an intermidate level, and cost is not the primary concern but is important.

Thanks,

Darin

Your S model uses different forks than the 02 and later S models which got the same suspension as the E/K models. You can look for E components (good luck!) or you can just get yours re-sprung and install emulators. Gold valves are not available for those forks, but in their stead, Race-Tech makes emulators which are supposed to be a significant improvement over stock. Matt Nelson has these. Matt, any comments good or bad on the emulators?

The race tech emulators, and eibach springs really helped a lot. I can go through the whoops much faster now. I did back to back tests with my dad's 2001S and there is a big difference. I installed everything myself.

I'm about to get race tech within the next couple months.

costing me about 720 dollars canadian.

Personally I think itsa good choice because even the E forks seem pretty soft to me.
