    Need wheels for DRZ

    Well I have these platinum bars just sitting around taking up space Heck, I don't know; A new aftermarket wheel with hub and spokes seems to be in the 600 dollar range. I hear stories of new wheels in the 250 to 400 range and I'm no pro, so I may not be the best judge; I paid 219 for my unused, complete front wheel(no rotor, but I'll have to use my sm rotor anyay) with a never used Deathwing on it. I figure a rear is worth a little more, 250 to 300? in the same condition? These things are like twinkies until someone finds out someone else wants them

    Sorry, had to jump in here; Audio is what I do... 3dB is only slightly different level to the human ear. 10dB is usually agreed on as twice (or half) as loud. Jeremy J
  4. So, I made a purchase. I bought a '05 DRZ-400SM and I really like it, BUT... I do want to get dirt wheels and tires for it. I'm not afraid of doing the work or spending the money (assuming it's not horendous), but I can't really find anywhere where it says whether S wheels would fit on the bike; where I can just buy S wheels with hubs, laced etc; what happens to the speedo; etc etc etc. Seems like there is a lot of traffic going from S to SM, but not so much from SM to S. I'm not in a terrible hurry, but it IS nearly the beginning of summer and I would like to do some dirt riding if possible. Any tips for a relative noob? Thanks for your patience. JJ PS What IS the travel on the SM suspension?
