    I recently picked up a CA-plated DRZ250.

    I'm 5'1", but the bike is so light and narrow that it's no problem riding it at the stock height.

    I did order the Thumper Racing big bore - I'm going to be using it for dualsport/adventure, and it runs out of steam a bit early on the street. That kit and a smaller rear sprocket should make it what I want.

    I have that, an EBC 320mm front rotor, and a rear rack to put on it, and then, more fun. :clap

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for a long range tank for my K7 DRz250.
    In Australia, Safaris tanks can modify a DR650 30 ltr tank to fit, but that is going to cost nearly AUD $1000. Out of my price range :puke1

    Do any of you guys know of a tank that will fit the 250? :evil

    Cheers

    mods today
    i needed a taller seat for the mighty drz250
    there is not one other than stock for the drz250 in the US and world
    so i did it old school and added 2 inches of new white foam at the rear and one inch in the middle under the stock seat cover
    [​IMG]
    i also added a bit of width about an inch
    heading out for a road test

    [​IMG]
    it is not the prettiest yet but a new cover will fix that in time

    i think yoshi stopped making the full system for our bikes just the slip on muffler

    i think there is a company called Wiley they make a full system i do know that fmf has a slip on as well
    so far i will stick with the yoshi stuff

    how about some pix of that xc
    btw how big is the tank on the djebel xc i am looking to buy a djebel tank and seat for the right price
