Didn't order them today but I will be installing an smoke edge tail light, clear turn signals, new grips, and an oil change. If there is still time I'll do a couple locktite fixes as well. :thumbsup:

Post up how you ended up mounting then. I'm curious as to how well they function. The stockers are ugly but work pretty well.

Just ordered a new gasket for the starter torque limiter since the old one was causing an oil leak. So bike will be sitting with no oil until that gets here.

Also ordered a chain breaker tool and a Trail Tech Vapor...

Below is how I ended up mounting them. It was the only way I could get any visibility out of them as all the stuff on my handlebars makes them crowded. They do not offer the amount of visibility as the stock ones, but they are much lighter and sleeker looking.

Picked up a fresh bottle of medium strength loctite to stop the bits and pieces from joining one of my seat bolts, that is in the middle of nowhere on some trail....lol

A six-pack of decent beer (Sierra Nevada Bigfoot Ale if you must know) for post-ride appreciation of a perfect day in Iowa to ride the DRZ.

Medium strength is overkill for seat bolts, or any body work fastener bolts for that matter.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      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!
