    2001 DRZ400s

    Hey guys, Its been a while since I posted. But I wondering if anyone could give me some assistance. I love my drz...its been a reliable bike. But reallity is that I dont ride it much anymore. I put a whole 300 miles on it last season. (kids and work always seem in the way) My question is to what you guys feel this bike is worth? It is a 2001s model with around 4000 miles on it. It is geared one tooth lower on the front sprocket with the 3x3 airbox mod. And thats basically it. It starts and runs every time with some minor wear and tear scratches and such. Everything is good from the brakes to the electronics. It is yellow in color. Anyone venture a guess as to it's value. I am located in upstate NY. Thanks in advance.

    anyone into bassfishing ?

    I do a lot of fishing....not so much on the bike though. When I do take the bike, it's always a light pack. I strap my pole in two pieces to my backpack....and take a light tackle box

    Stock speedo

    Are you talking about the display? or just the speedo does not work. You could always pull the front wheel and make sure the tab is there.

    UFO Tail/Blinker Assembly

    Yes...there is a clear section on the bottom of the lense.

    Broken bolts!

    I agree....Use a drill press if you have one. And a good metal bit. Once you break the head free, the rest should come pretty easy. Did you try heat first before the stripped.

    Fork race sag

    I've never been on a sport bike where the front end sags when you sit on it. ...unless the front end is under braking load.

    Do you think I need a skid plate?

    Yeah....seriously consider getting one.....you will thank yourself later. I have not found a skid that does not reflect noise or vibrate...the trick is find a good mounting method...maybe use some tape, foam or other insulator to deadin some of the sound.

    05' Sm - Axle Sliders - Pics

    Are the speedo and brake lines on the outside of the fork tubes on all super moto models? Or is it because of the larger brakes? That would scare me just as well.

    Ohlins shock ?

    Are you buying it new? They usually set it up for your weight snd riding style.
  11. Going on a year with mine....no complaints. I went through two stock junkers before this.

    your opinion please ktm 625 sm VS Drz 400 sm

    My buddy has the KTM 625 dirt version...I will say that there is no comparison once so ever when it comes to power....The KTM will eat the drz. I'm happy with my drz....but it is fun to ride his bike once in a while.
