Dear Previous Owner, Thank you for selling my your used '02 DRZ 400s. As a newb to motorcycles, this is a great purchase. I'm enjoying the bike very much. However, I'm making a lot of mods to it, and I've come to see that even though you changed the oil, and took basic care of this bike, you have a brain defect. For example, previous owner, why, when you swapped the front sprocket, did you not only fail to perform the loctite fix, but in addition, install the front sprocket THE WRONG WAY? I noticed it rattling, and when I took the bike in to Eddie for a checkover, he looked at my like I was an idiot as he told me the sprocket was backwards. I tried to explain that you, the previous owner had done it, but I'm sure he hears that one all the time. Another thing, previous owner. Why, oh why, did you install the TT caseguards off center and with the logo at such an absurd angle? It clearly states in the instructions that you can use a piece of masking tape to hold them on while the silicon sets. Did you not read that? Do you have any idea how hard it is to get those things off? By the way, did you have to use so much silicone that it smushed out the edge of the caseguard leaving an ugly roiled mess of mush all around the edges? What were you thinking? I notice that you cut the 3x3. That's great. But you really cut a jagged hole approximately 4 x 3.5. How did you cut around the posts that support the CDI so cleanly, yet were unable to make a clean cut anywhere else? Did you use a butter knife to saw away at this? Plastic is not that hard to cut, how did you do such a bad job? Also, dear PO, when you did cut this gash in the airbox, did you rejet? I don't know. Being a newb I wasn't sure if the bike was running properly. But when I went to check the jets, I saw that the float bowl screws were fairly well stripped. Now I'm no expert, but in reading through TT here I found that it's fairly easy to replace said screws with allen head bolts, making the bowl easier to remove. You informed me, PO, that you were 'always on TT' and 'always in your garage working on your bike', how did you miss these things? And while I'm at it PO, why the **** did you feel the need to put such terrible decals on the stock tank? Did you not see that they in no way match any other color on the bike? Of course, the stock tank was not on the bike when I bought it. A very nice IMS 4 gal was there, for which I thank you. But since I sometimes want to ride around town without a dromedary hump on the front of my bike I'd like to use the stock tank. Those damn decals are meant for a plastic tank, that's why they had the holes on them. Also, why did you take the stock petcock off? No problem for me to buy and install a new one, but the stock petcock is NOT on the IMS. And what did you do to the keyhole in the tank cap? Did you rub concrete directly into it? How the hell am I supposed to get that out?!?!? Oh, another thing.... Where did the upper chain roller go? Again, when I took this to eddie and he told me it was missing, I deferred to you. But I'm sure he thought it was me. And how did you ride so much that the rear toolkit bag (which contained only an old rusty sparkplug and some trash, by the way, thanks! ) was threadbare and barely holding on? And, why, oh why, dear PO did you not install some sort of radguards? Obviously you dropped this bike, and a single outer row of fins in the rads is crushed. Not enough to cause a problem, but while you were installing new bars, MCCT, and case guards, couldn't you have just put some unabikers on too? YOu seemed to have a nice house and good job, and a few nice cars at your place. Finally, what the hell did you do to the battery box. When eddie installed the Super Start kit (which works great by the way :-), the box was too damaged from some sort of intentional abuse to be modified. No biggie in terms of cost, but from the point of view of your ineptness being transferred to my embarrassment, priceless. Well, I guess that's why I got it at a good price. It runs well, no engine problems, starts right up. In short, PO, thanks for the bike, but maybe you should stick to cars. I feel like riding to your house and showing you what your bike COULD have looked like. That is all.
