Cool! I'd love to hear more about your build, especially the improvements over stock.

Damn! I guess I'll be holding out for a fuel injected Drz from Suzuki then. Maybe if a ltz with a blown engine pops up on CraigsList I'll buy it and take a look at the parts.

I've never had that issue. I stuff a small wrench into the rear sprocket/chain and rotate the tire to put a goodly amount of tension on the chain before tightening the axle.

My tire irons also goes somewhere else on the fram as well...
Brilliant!

So doing an oil change on this bike is pretty damn easy, 2 quarts of oil, the filter, 3 different size's sockets for the wrench, and about 15-20, its actually fun.

I'm not in the market for another DR-Z, but I just saw this ad this evening and I believe it's a good deal.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/mcy/3316579904.html

I don't know the seller, I'm not associated with the ad, I'm just trying to pass along a good opportunity to another inmate if I can.

An Aussie DRZ400E

Here's a couple of pics of my Aussie DRZ400E, done a few mods to lighten it up, and I do a bit of light short adventure riding as well as enduro/trail riding

You forgot build custom funnel for frame drain to oil pan(especially w/ skidplate), Clean out entire skidplate after oil filter install and wash motor twice with carb cleaner and water to get all the oil burn stink off it. Enough to make you have another. Skid plate usually still drools oil on the floor for a day or 2.

Leave the skid plate on and just make a funnel out of a doubled up piece of aluminum foil. You can stuff that stuff up behind the drain bolt and funnel it right into the drain pan. I also throw a small piece over the header pipe just to keep oil from covering it and smoking on start up. Aluminum foil, the wonder tool

When I change oil on mine I set the bike vertical and there isn't any problem with oil dribble days later. Sure it gets a little on the skid plate as the drain bolt is removed but easy to wipe out afterwards. Now I have only done three changes of the oil so maybe I just got lucky. I do have to look at "my tips" manual to install the drain bolt washer properly. Wouldn't a flat one have been easier to design Suzuki? Like on every other engine I have ever owned.
