Mike it came in at 420 kg when when fully fuelled etc and rider weight is included in that figure. The bike has covered about 12,000 km this year with that set-up, 90% off that was of the tarmac and on gravel roads,4WD tracks, desert and coastal sand tracks - never missed a beat.

41.75mpg / 5.982liters per 100km you can achieve, can you also tell me about the front and rear sprockets you been using?

Not sure how you can clear logs and other trail obstacles without a clutch.:

I still need to get new rear turn signals

Before and After









This is a bracket with reflector that was supplied but I didn't use. It would mount behind the tag

Just bought a new drz400s this morning. Ain't even had time to ride it out of the yard yet.
I've read most of this thread and need to know what things I might need to do to get the bike really ready to go get muddy. You know--airbox mods-casesavers-barkbusters-etc etc. Those kind of things.
I think I'll go get it a little dirty now.

Those three at a minimum for off road

Sidestand switch and Clutch switch bypass mods can save you a headache in the field

I have that tank (IMS I believe). Works like a champ, though a bit of the fuel out in the wings isn't accessable.
