I would let mine go for the right price...I kinda want to get a vstrom....

I'm the original owner....Mine is a 2003 S Model, Probably about 6-8K miles on it....

I have two sets of wheels... SM and off road wheels

It has a Full Yosh RS3 on it, cycra hand guards, IMS Pegs, Tonns Racing Rack and skid plate, DRC tail light, after market turn signals, Trailtech Vector Computer, I have an IMS plastic tank, extra shrouds and extra seat and front fender I put on it when I ride it off road....

(i just dont ride it offroad anymore though since i have a WR450)

I'll never want to sell mine!

I hope.

Good luck in the search - if your buddy has an SM who are you trail riding with?

Keep in mind how you will use it.

Reach out to Panaman he seems to have gone the trail to street route and stayed street (for me the street just gets me to the trails so I live with pure off road setup).

Seems like he could give you some insight. oh, and his bike is Sweet.

I'll never want to sell mine!

I hope.

I've swapped wheels, tanks, and fenders back and forth multiple times... and it does get a old.. heheh... but its cheaper than two bikes....

I've also done a bunch of dualsport events... the dirt picture i am showing is from the six days of michigan....

I still do dual sport events....and plan to do more.... I just decided I wanted to get a bike that was more modern and lighter with a lot of grunt.. so I bought the WR450 last august... I got it plated with turn signals and stuff.. (ohio is easy to do that with bikes) Ever since then I just leave the DRZ in super moto trim.. no point in putting the dirt wheels on....

I would miss the DRZ, I bought her brand new... and I've done so much to her, I just don't ride it as much as I used too.... (especially after my daughter was born.. she is 1 and half now...)

If I do sell it though... I think I would get a bigger street bike like a vstrom.

Something I can easily ride 100 miles on the freeway with.....

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
      Suzuki part number:  54600-29F00
