Any Recommendations for an good after market spark plug wrench to carry on the bike? Someone stole my tools from my bike is why I am looking. I may be mistaken maybe they did not steal my tools but just borrowed them for a LONG time!

Motion pro should have one. You will need a special skinny socket with a wobble attachment to fit down in the well, and around the frame.

RMATV often has good tools available as well.

Recommendation for everyone: While in the comfort of your home, make sure you have sufficient tools to change a plug and fix flats that you carry on your bike. Nothing like getting out there & discovering you can't get the bike going again.

DDoes anyone have install directions for kick start?

I bought a kick start kit from a private seller. The kit didn't have directions. I have looked over Mr Cobbs instructions and as good as they are I would like the paper instructions that come with the kit. I was wondering if anyone out there might have a copy they could share or sell. Please PM.......Thanks

Thanks

I seem to recall that the Pivot Pegz have a fixed position on the DR-Z unlike many other bikes where the peg could be spaced differently to lower and move it rearward on the axis of the mounting pin... nothing like an inch though... Usually it is only the spring swapped from side to side.
I stand corrected (just assumed they were all the same in that respect)

Go to lowes get a lawnmower socket, its thin walled and light. A standard box wrench will turn it. Great for packing.

EDIT...

Nope... no adjustment.
