I just don't want any gremlins to mess around IF it had any, so hopefully there will be none, if I get to take a shot at this E....

Orders over $225. Yeah...I ordered all of it. Sorta an impulse buy, and sorta not. I had some money sitting in my PayPal from a refund, and figured what the hell.

But yes, they probably hate you.

Stainless spacers wear a lot better.

I'd suggest marking them left and right too.
Thanks the grease is a good one
And the left right marking, very logical
Where do you get your stainless spacers from

I wouldn't have thought that the wrap would hold in so much heat as to destroy an exhaust, probably the wrap holding water and slowly corroding?

Anyhow assuming that you have a rear rack, how about getting a sheet of aluminium and bolting a guard to it and covering the exhaust side?
No complicated bends involved and fairly light weight, plus removable when you want it with no hassle?

I'm looking for a more off road presence, with suspension that doesn't make your life hard when you go off road.

Is it easier to find SM wheels to fit the S OR dirt wheels to fit the SM?

I'm in a good pickle, I think
I'd get the SM. I own a 2006 and love it. The S rims are not hard to find. Plus the SM is a ton of fun to ride around town. Takes me a 1/2 hour to change out rims. Two bikes in one. Be careful. DRZ's can be very contagious. I'm currently looking for a 39 fcr carb for mine. The summer dual sport rally's are coming up. Enjoy which ever bike you get. Great platform.....

That is probably what he is referring to and the most common form of corrosion when using heat wrap. Personally i havent had any issues with it on any of my pipes. At least not to the point of pipe failure, perhaps a little surface corrosion.

When I made my spacers, I made the dimensions dead nuts to the original, not being sure of the tolerance window on the OD. I tried to hit within .001 on the contact surface....Is that way overkill?

That would be great. In the process of trying to do it right, and would like to just do it once, maybe twice...
Anyway all help is appreciated...

Thanks for the information....

Was it 2001 or 2002 when things changed for the S?


I'm looking at a 2001 S from a fellow advrider and just want to make sure its the one.

Thanks

E model exhaust cam?

2007 E model

There are 2 different exhaust cams, one is a Ca. cam, the other is a non california cam.

Whats the difference?

Im assuming one will cause the spontaneous death of small, cute, fluffy forest animals, and the other will make your bike exhaust expel rainbows and sweetarts.

Is it correct for me to assume you are using GS500 wheels? If not, then pictures of my adapter won't help.
