Tonn's fabrication makes some top quality skid plate & racks..
Looks like he recently added a couple of tool bag relocating brackets to his line.

pic of my new DRZ

I bought a brand new S last week.. took it home and stripped the decals, and about 20 lbs of stuff... smog, pass pegs, mirrors, helmet lock, just all kinds of crap...literally a bag with 20 lbs of crap including the stock fender/light set up. Here is how she sits with 68 miles on the odometer... last night doing some urban dual sporting in a big dirt lot with mud from the san francisco bay in sections... the trailwings have always gotten me in trouble. Thick thick mud. had to get towed out by my buds truck :)

Has anyone ever tried to make a front turn signal work on the back? I'm thinking it might be possible to swap the hardware...

It's not a theory it's a fact, (research it urself) if u don't know that fact than u definitly ride like a 3 years old girl .

What rear spring rate for ADV set-up?

Just wondering what rear spring rate you guys have used when the rear of the bike is loaded up with touring kit.
I'm guessing a total of 20-25Kgs of kit (inc pannier frames & rear rack) added to the rear of my bike ('2000 E)

When touring i switch to S rear sub-frame and wind my standard spring up loads to re-level the bike but for next year I'd like to put a better spring on so I don't need so much pre-load.

I'm just trying to guess at what rate of rear spring I'd need...
