    Any Other KLX250S Owners Out There?

    Hey MBD Afflicted, I am another guy comparing DRZ400S and KLX250S for dual sport trail riding in FL. Do you think I could reasonably ride 100 miles of street to get to Ocala NF for a weekend of trail riding? That would be the main purpose of me buying it. Thanks, Charles

    DRZ400 Market

    Here I am. Yeah, I don't want to go too far...and your're right, looking for an S. In fact, I'm bidding on this one that is about 15 minutes away from me! http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuki-DR-DRZ-400-S-2005-Suzuki-DRZ-400-S-Dual-Sport-FMF-Dirt-Bike_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50027QQitemZ4597272190QQrdZ1 Good luck selling your E, post it on ADVRider maybe, and on Craigslist, and on any dual sport or dirt riding club sites in your area, etc.

    Hi from Newbie! Lookin' at a DRZ400S....

    Ok, I'm biddin' folks, thanks so much for all your replies. Last ebay auction, closing bid on her: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuki-DR-DRZ-400-S-2005-Suzuki-DRZ-400-S-Dual-Sport-FMF-Dirt-Bike_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50027QQitemZ4597272190QQrdZ1 was $4050, it didn't meet reserve, is on a new auction with a lower reserve now, hopefully I'll get it. Let's hope a couple of my rampant speculative trades in the futures markets work out and pay for the bike so my savings doesn't have to (of course, if they dont' work out, the bike will cost me double so I should STFU). Oh, and winter schminter, here in FL we can ride all year round, so See, I can begin being a noob dirt rider and dropping the DRZ hundreds of times right off the bat instead of having to wait until spring. This will also be my learning tool for working on bikes myself (I've never even changed a tire). I'm sure I'll post a pic one day of parts lying around with me scratching my head trying to re-assemble something , which will translate into entertainment for you people. Will let you know! Again, thank you....and peace.

    Hi from Newbie! Lookin' at a DRZ400S....

    Yep...I've perused the dual sport market, and I've seen the differences, and I've narrowed it down to an S. I want an out of the box dual sport and I recognize to a decent degree what I give up and compromise on to get that. If I go with the DRZ, which is a leaning for me now, based on my research it sounds like I may open it up a little with the 3x3 mod and rejetting the carb probably, and have an extra set of sprockets when I plan on spending a weekend on the trails. Maybe open up the exhaust a little, but other than that, I don't want to transform an S into an E. That is exactly what I suspected, which is why I asked about it here. Thanks!

    Hi from Newbie! Lookin' at a DRZ400S....

    Hiya from a Newbie!!! I am an export from ADVRider.com, a GS rider who is lookin' at adding a smaller dualsport thumper for simple trail riding (and riding a good distance on the road to get there), which will be a first for me. The boys referred nicely to TT... I am looking at the DRZ400S and a KLX250S right now. Back and forth... So.....this barely used DRZ is for sale right down the street from me: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Suzuki-DR-DRZ-400-S-2005-Suzuki-DRZ-400-S-Dual-Sport-FMF-Dirt-Bike_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ50027QQitemZ4597272190QQrdZ1 Is that exhaust loud? Does it add material power? Can I remove the silly stickers?! What should I pay if I wanna buy it? Thank you thank you thank you............
