Definitely the drz then. But 3800 for a 2000 with unknown miles is crazy. BeIng in Cali you would be hooked up if you put one months work and waiting time for something better to come across craigslist. It's worth the wait and you'll feel like you won and not gotten ripped off.

I got a 2002 DRZ S for $2200 it came with hotcams FMF power bomb and FMF exhaust 3x3 mod and it had 11000 miles on it. I bought it in Hawaii where everything cost more:foul:. The nice thing about stock at least you know where your starting. There may have been other thing done to my bike that I don't know about:banghead:. I will find out when it's time to rebuild. Either way I love the bike:ride:!! This what it looked like when I got it.

If it's an E it's way too much. If it's an S it's a bit too much. Also in 2000 they put the much better E suspension on the S as well. There is a pretty big jump in tuneability with the 2002+ models that you don't get with the previous generation.

Take the average cost of the mods, cut that in half, then depreciate it by time and use. Helmets, jackets, etc. add zero value to a used bike.
