OEM parts

Hello
I have been updating my DR-Z... anyone interested in the OEM rear sprocket, foot pegs, or air filter? I also the stock Mechanical Speed-o-meter drive gear, cable, and Odometer (Not a speedo, only Resetable Odometer).

If you are interested let me know and we can work out a price, and I will send pictures.

Thanks.

You guys obviously don't read (or maybe comprehend ) before you respond?

I pretty specifically said: I also need a suggestion for a good KNOBBY for the front, the trials tire is great for the rear, but I need something with a knobby shoulder to help cornering in the loose stuff

Update on street tracker drz250

Well,after hours on the interwebs looking for cheap ways to lower my bike,I finally decided to jump in with both feet and try it. I made some lowering links for the rear shock,ended up pretty good. Lowered the rear about 3",then I needed to lower the front end,cheaply.I ended up taking the forks apart and cutting the springs 3" and put it all back together and honestly,I think it looks great! I plan on taking the square headlight and shroud off and replacing it with a round headlight. For the bodywork,plastic/fiberglass cafe racer tailsections and seat pans are crazy expensive,so it looks like I my try my hand on doing a custom fiberglass rear section. As far as the tank,I have an old fiberglass flat track tank hanging in my garage. Maybe I can line the inside with something that will hold up to the gas we have around here. What to do,what to do...Hopefully you guys don't mind me posting this stuff here,I'm just kinda excited to be customising another scooter after a long break.

Thinking about getting some of these http://www.carlscycle.com/eshopprod_...g_Link_Set.htm

... doe anyone else think $40 usd is rather the expensive to send to a relatively small and light weight item from the U.S to New zealand?

Cheers
