ReviewGreat looking skid plate, I opted to go the anodized route. I know its going to get scraped up but I just am not a fan of bare aluminum. Fitment was a little tricky to get figured out. Took a few tires to get all the mounting tabs lined up and had to get some help from my trusty floor jack. But once installed it looks great and I'm confident it will provide the protection I need.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewBest looking hand guards I've ever seen. They feel a lot more rock solid then the Acerbis guards I have on my other bike. They did require a little additional work to get installed and were not good to go out of the package. Detailed a little bit of that work below.
- None of the mounting holes come pre-tapped, but instead come with Self tapping screws. They didn't work too well, I could only get them half way in and the head was threatening to strip out. So I went to the hardware store and got a 10-24 tap to pre cut the threads. I also replaced the original black oxide Phillips screws with S.S. button head cap screws (10 additional bucks)
- The plastic covers for the side of the bar are straight, the bar is curved. Required a significant amount of force to curve the cover to match the bars contour. To make matters worse the mounting holes didn't line up. I dad to slot one of the holes in the side plastic cover to make it line up with both holes. Then I had to hold it in a vise to bend into correct contour while I screwed it down.
After that was all said and done they look fantastic. I like that you can buy replacement plastics for the guards too.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewIt was a pain to find long enough bolts to install this mount. Not Cycra's fault that Suzuki placed the two bolts too close together to allow standard off the shelf hardware to fit. You need M8x60mm bolts. Original were flange bolts, but most have too large of of a diameter to fit side by side. Finally found some that work from Probolt. Fit great and I trust them more than the hardware store bolts. (30 additional bucks for a pack of 5 bolts) If I had known this I might have just gone with the bar mount kit.
ReviewAfter dropping the bike and cracking the magneto case cover I invested in a set of ThumperTalk case shields. Installed with RTV and held in place with masking tape while it cured over night. Hopefully the prevent any future damage.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewReplace my OEM clutch lever with this DRC OEM style shorty lever to fit inside my hand guards. Was simple to replace and fits perfectly. I much prefer the ball end for safety reasons than cutting the OEM lever.

$14.50CategoryLast UpdatedReviewI know that the same effect can be achieved by cutting the wire and soldering it together or adding some butt connectors to it and connecting them together... but I prefer not to hack up oem cables or parts if there is a cheap alternative. Some would argue this isn't cheap, but I don't mind. It was easy to install and is easy to reverse. Love it so far.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewGas tank adds 0.7g of extra fuel and most importantly is much more resistant in the case of going down on the bike while dirt riding. This is the main reason I got it, plus its nice that you can see the fuel level in it. Installation was a bit of a challenge. The hole for the fuel petcock needed to be drilled out larger, it seems this is something that everyone needs to do though with this tank. Radiator shroud attachment bolts are too short to be re-used due to tank geometry. I got some longer Button Head Cap Screws to replace them (same length as the one that attaches the shroud to the radiator). Seat was a PITA to get one, needed a second person to hold the bike still while I spread the seat out where it wrapped around the tank and pushed forward. Once it had been on the bike for a while though it was easier to remove and put back on. So far great tank though! Easily cleared my Unabiker Rad Guards!
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewTugger strap allows you to have a strap that is tied to the frame for listing of puling the bikes tail around when you get stuck somewhere or lay the bike down. Installation was not difficult but the instructions are not bike specific, so you need to look at the available hardware included and figure out the best combination to get it to fit right. Haven't used it in the field yet. Also will probably adjust the length so it sits tighter against the seat.
ReviewInstalled these radiator guards while I was swapping out the gas tank. Installation was a little tricky getting everything lined up. But once I got it all figured out they look and fit really well. Haven't trail tested them yet but they look great!
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewReplaced my OEM plastics so that they don't get trashed when riding out on the trail. The Acerbis parts are made for the E model, but with a little bit of modification you can fit them onto the S/SM. Photo's show the OEM white plastics next to the black Acerbis plastics for comparison of what needs to be trimmed. I missed taking pics of right cover, but the trimming is similar to whats required on the left. If you take the strap that goes over the seat then no trimming is required on the airbox cover or the left cover. Battery cover had a tab that needed to be trimmed. Rear fender required the most work. Also this kit doesn't come with the DZUS screws for the air box. I bought a set for Kurvy Girl DZUS fasteners for the DRZ400 and they worked great, or you can reuse the OEM ones if you can get the retaining clip off. I reused the gromit for the right side plastic. There are some miscelaneous bumpers and foam on the OEM plastics that are not on the Acerbis. You can order those pieces from Suzuki if you want, but I installed without and so far its just fine. The right plastic near the exhaust doesn't have the insulation on it. You can order from Suzuki also, but I think I will see how it does with out it. Tusk sells some adhesive insulation in an 18x18 square that I will try if there is an issue.
CategoryLast UpdatedReviewGreat looking tail light and install's easily when paired with the Thumper Talk bracket and the 12 o'clock labs OEM connector. I re-used my OEM tail lights.
