    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Yup, did one at time. No way to mix them up. The only thing I'm worried about now is that I have the wrong pegs somehow.

    I double checked the part number like 10 times before ordering. Hope they are the right pegs. Looking at your pic I regret not getting the proseries. Just was worried the teeth were too sharp.

    I spent an hour last night trying to figure out how to install the IMS super stock pegs I got for xmas. I got one side done and called it a night. I couldn't get the damn spring to fit into the notch on the new peg at all. The geometry of the new peg where the spring sits is dramatically different. I think IMS should have included new custom springs. I ended up reshaping the spring to fit over the mounting tap on the inside. Nothing some pliers, a hammer and a bench vise can't fix, haha. The new peg is also much lower than the old peg, so I need to adjust the brake pedal still. Will tackle the other side this weekend.

    (Side note since we're talking about torque wrenches) I had a bad experience with my sunex torque wrench when working on my Subaru a few weeks ago and have been looking to replace it. I was reinstalling the steering rack and went to torque the bolts to spec and either broke the welded nut free on the engine sub frame that it attaches to or i stripped it out... So I've been looking for a replacement. I was looking at Snapon, but OMG the prices. Anyone have any experience with torque wrenches that don't cost an arm and a leg?

    DRZ pics, lets see your Z

    Will have to see how the bike actually performs compared to it's price/weight rivals. But if I did decide to get a 450L or say a ktm or husky I plan on converting the DRZ to semi perminant SM duty for street use.

    Out here its 3/4 of a tank, but I agree with everyone that your life is priceless so don't sweat the cost of safety gear. If you can't afford the proper gear and its upkeep then you can't afford to ride. 70 bucks is totally reasonable price here given the alternative is "i'm sorry sir, we don't sell spare parts to limit our liability but I can sell you a new one for $300".

    What did you BUY for your DRZ today

    Kinda for the DRZ but more for me. bought a new GoPro Hero 5 Black and a Sena SMH5 dual pack so when I'm riding with my brother I can record and hear him crash!

    I was about ready to sell my DRZ until I read the price... now I'm thinking hmm..... How long before I can buy a used one.

    Wash riding pants?

    What's mud? Haha, I live in California so the mud season is a few days out of the year. And when there is mud they close down all the riding parks to "preserve the trails". But I really think its just because us Californians have no idea how to ride in the mud and to save them selves from having to medivac everyone out. But on the rare occasions when I find myself and my bike covered in mud I hose my gear off first on the driveway before washing it.

    Left it charging over night and it looks like it took the charge, bike fired right up. Have it set to store now. Hopefully no long term effects from letting it die! Good to know that I can use a standard tender as well if needed.

    Was very worried about that same thing. At first it was only charging for about 15 min before giving an error tone and lights then shut off. Tried charge 2 more times and the last time the lights finally changed to charge mode and seems to be charging. Fingers crossed.

    Bought the Shorai Charge and Store Battery Management System. I hadn't ridden the bike in so long the battery was dead and you can't use a standard battery tender for their Lithium Ion battery.
