Appearance Mods... Lets here some suggestions...

Recommended Posts

My 06 SM is coming today and I wanted to get a head start on getting the tail light. And maybe a new headlight... I'm thinking about the trail tech X2...

I haven't read or seen many posts about it here or any where... Does anyone have it on their DRZ? How hard was the install?

I'm also looking at the Cyclops. I have read a lot about a rubber strap, can anyone explain?

This bike will be used mostly on road 90% of the time.

I'm also thinking about a new seat, but I think I will wait and see how I can handle the stocker...

Any other suggestions about appearance mods?

What about hand guards? sliders?

Thanks for any help...

CASE GUARSM RAD GUARDS AND HANDGUARDS ARE A MUST, CHECK THE FAQ, EVERYONE PUTS THESE ON FIRST.

As for appearance, I 'm partial to the EDGE tail and Lightworks sigs.

Check my garage for more.

Everyone has different tastes.. I would search around the garage pictures and you'll find every kind of mod form 24liter tanks and sat navs to bobbed DRZs..

As for the trail tech X2 I haven't fitted one but they do look very good but they are really designed for offroad riding not on road. They use either the HID kit or a 70w halogen but both don't have a level, there both spot lights so you will blind other road users. Not a good idea cause if they target fixate there going to head straight for ya!!

Rich :p

Don't forget about other appearance mods like the 3X3 airbox hole, FCR39 carb, a new exhaust system, and camshafts and a big bore kit that suddenly made an appearance on your doorstep.

Coincides with a disappearance of funds but a major increase in fun. :p

The 3X3 is free, actually. :ride:

I was going to say, "Get Yellow Plastic" until I saw Thumper 929's post.

That is a nice looking blue bike in a beautiful setting.

So, I would say, a nice taillight and blinker set will be close to the 1st appearance mod that most people on this forum would agree with. Then after that you are on your own.

Me, I like the 4.2 gallon fuel tanks....for performance and appearance.

The IMS 2.6 gallon tank is the sweetest one for the DR-Z400SM in my book.

Click MY GARAGE to see it.

Lowers the front portion of the seat and looks the biz.

Comes in several colors, too. :p
