    It just wasn't right for me . . .

    They are good bikes (the DRZs) but I can't blame you I want a BMW too. I think if I got one it would be along Erling's type though a 650/800GS. I pretty much got the DRZ as a starter and absolutely love it but I know that one day it will be replaced with something bigger and better.

    Advice on Refinishing Subframe

    I was looking around on SMJ and found this company http://www.moto-x-coatings.com/ on the Honda thread. I bought an extra subframe from a guy over there so I could cut off the pass pegs and not ruin my original subframe. I am contemplating getting it painted to match my frame or powder coated black.

    Craziest Thing You Have Done On The DRZ!?

    I wish it was that easy!!! It is when your rear tire "steps out" or slides do to downshifting, clutch control and braking as you are entering a turn. Here read this it may explain it better. http://www.supermotoracer.com/SMR%20Tech%20stories/iss2_backitin.pdf. Sorry wasn't trying to hijack just wanted to answer the question.

    Man you guys really make me miss CA. When I think about how amazing the roads are out there coupled with the selection of motor sport events and tracks I just wanna move back out there and stay.

    Advice on a 2005 DR-Z400 SM

    drz400sm = when to rebuild?

    When I looked at this thread I kept looking for the asking price in your original post thinking maybe I missed something. I was thinking maybe $2000 if that but then I saw the $5500 and said to myself ***. I don't know if there was a mistake made in one of your original posts but personally I would run from that dealer. I paid $4000 for my 05 and it only had 1600 miles on it.

    What bike would you have if there was no dr-z?

    Honda CRF450 in sumo clothes and plated or a Husky 510SMR but why be choosy I want both.

    DRZ 400 exhaust systems

    I did see that I could order one butI was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of how much it quiets it down compared to being open. I also understand that it won't flow as well but I was just curious how loud it was with the quiet insert.
