Hi DRZ fans, I just got finished with my first bike, an 81 Yamaha XS400, and now it's time to move on. I have spent a lot of time on advrider and smj and decided I want a bike that I can adventure with and have SM wheels for hooliganism on the side. My obvious choice was the DRZ400S. I have come across one for sale, and I wanted to see what you more experienced DRZ folk thought of this. It is located in New England. 6,000 Miles yellow DRZ400S 2001 Acerbis Handguards Unknown skid plate (has hole for oil change and semi-covers the sidecases) FMF exhaust with quiet core Brand new DOT knobbies Stainless steel front brake line and new pads Owner said he uses the bike mostly on the street and hardly ever touches the rear brake, meaning that the rear brake is solid Oil + filter just changed Previous owner soldered in a "power valve" into the intake side of the carb. The current owner said he thought the P.O. was a nutcase and so he removed it, said it made the bike run a lot better when gone. He thinks it was jetted for the exhaust because the bike runs great with no hesitations spitting etc. I don't think it has the 3x3 mod. He wants $1500 firm for it, but he said he would throw in some things like goggles and pants so I can get closer to a more dual-sport-ish gear setup. I would plan on doing the 3x3 and rejetting it to wake up the bike some and remove the unknown of current jetting due to the "power valve" mod. He said it was like a little tab of metal that impeded air flow or some shite. Supposedly the intake side of the carb wasn't effected except for a couple small nicks.
