Pretty much. The 49-state model is used by loggers for clear-cutting rain forest. Just drive it through, and the trees fall over. The CA-compliant version attracts unicorns, so ride carefully.

The CA model of the E is basically an S with no lights or cargo rack. It has lower compression, smaller cams, a Mikuni CV carb and some pollution crap added - fuel vapor canister, etc.

Instead of a neutered E, just buy an S model and have some lights and a better subframe.

I'm about to install a Vapor unit on my KLX 400. Anything you wish you knew before you installed yours?
And, I have 909 hand guards and a part is missing. Does anyone know how to contact the manufacturer?

Got one.

2007 DRZ400E, plated, low hours, full FMF Q4, jetted, and baja ds kit.

I traded it/$$$ for my KTM.

It needs tires soonish (D606's?) and then it needs to be ridden!

What did you end up paying for it? I have had good luck with 606's. Welcome to Club DRZ!

i'd suggest checking out Pirelli XCMH instead of the 606.

in my experience, the 606 front is a terrible dirt tire. the rear is OK in dry, hard packed dirt, but not good in mud or loose stuff.

the XCMH front is an awesome dirt tire. the rear isn't great, but is better than the 606.

on the street, the 606 front handles a bit better than the XCMH, but the difference is small. the XCMH front also last about twice as long for me.

the rears on the street are about the same in all regards in my experience.

so, in a nutshell, the XCMH and 606s are about equal performance-wise on the street. the rears last about the same. the front XCMH lasts much longer. the XCMH also outperforms the 606 in the dirt by a large margin--especially the front.
