ReviewFitment was not a big issue, it just took some careful placing (read "manhandling") to get it on the frame and over the radiators with squishing or pinching anything. Overall it looks pretty good on the bike, and the taller profile doesn't interfere with the dash at all. Good price and piece for something that almost doubles the tank range before reserve.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewAt 6' 3" with long gorilla-like arms, the stock handlebars on the DRZ400S made me want to cry when riding in the standing position. I couldn't stand without being hunched over the front end or oddly tweaking my wrists. I added the KX High (SE) bars from Pro Taper and with the added height and width the standing position is much better. The pullback/sweep is less, resulting in a more forward position and leaves my arms relaxed and less prone to numbness. Took ten minutes to get used to and left me wondering why these bars weren't stock from the factory.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewPretty firm padding, but a much wider area for the buns. Disperses weight much better and keeps my lower half from going numb after 30 minutes. It's also got a micro suede top and vinyl side gripper panels which makes it perfect for the road. Being a commuter with that stock seat gave me hemorrhoids that began talking to me in languages that I never knew my butt could speak. Now with the new seat my butt only whispers sweet nothings to me.
OK, that's a little weird, I made it up. Butt seriously (teehee) this seat saved my motorcycle from me setting it on fire. World of difference. Get the regular height if you want one taller than stock, get the low profile if you want one the same height as stock.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewHave you ever been hit by a car and then the driver says "Oh My! I didn't even see you!" or "Where did you come from?" I have. It is one of the most terrifying things in the world to be the deer in someone else's headlights, and it's infuriating to have them act oblivious or refuse to admit fault when they could've killed you. Ugh... Cagers... So that's why I bought this DG O-Series slip-on with midpipe. From what I could tell it was one of the loudest exhausts available, certainly the least expensive, and overall pretty amiable in the looks department. I enjoy having it, night riding is significantly less scary when deer run away fearing a lion might be chasing them, and everyone in a car can hear you coming from a considerably further distance than the stock pipe.
I left my house and rode around town, upon returning my Dad said he could hear me downshift into second. I downshifted into second at the traffic circle about 1.5 miles from home. It's very loud, so be aware of that (if that's good or bad in your book idk, your call).
So it looks good, has an easy install with instructions, has a fatter, louder, throatier growl, and is the least expensive of the possible mods for the DRZ exhausts. Total win
ReviewInstall was super easy. It comes with a stick marked like graphing paper. You simply trace the stock mounting holes from the stock fender, stick the graphing sticker onto the new Acerbis fender, and drill a couple holes. Mine is black, the color matched perfectly and fit around the forks, tire, frame, radiators, etc without fuss. It looks much better than the baseball mitt that comes stock on the S model. Can't beat a simple fix like that for $25. Am totally pleased with it.
ReviewFits the Clarke tank perfect, looks great, nice vent tube nipple thing that saves me from having to get 4' of fuel hose to make a vent, and it also saves me from having to clean out my tank, carb, and fuel lines if the Clarke gas had ever failed (which is/was a HUGE problem for many). Glad to have the tusk cap on the bike, nice piece.
