    Thanks for the comment.

    The bars are Renthal, and are ATV bars for the height (http://www.renthal.com/shop/mx-products/handlebars/se-handlebars/atv-se-handlebars?product_id=2013).

    They are perfect for my height (6'1"), and no problem with the fit of Cycras. You'll need to putz with the cables a bit.

    I also got the brand new (2014 with 50 miles on em) Dunlops that came on the SM in the trade, i like the 244's cause i still want to hit the dirt,

    Its all about trying something new and trying different set ups IMO.

    Definitely like, but boy that's a lot of coin for a fairing.

    The bracket that holds the speedo / dash onto the top of the triple clamp.

    Hey all,

    I bought a 2014 drz 400 SM today. :)

    Pick it up prob Thursday (calling for an inch or 2 of wet white crap Tomm damnit!)

    Am very excited.



    I was very torn on what bike to buy but think I made the right choice.
    Was considering a new klr650, crf250l, terra650, xr-l with sumo kit, and I demoed a ktm 690 enduro that was amazing but $3500 more than my sm, and my not dirt worthy considerations, a ninja 1k, and an fz -09, a versys, and a nc700x..

    Now mod time.....

    Thanks Eddy! I hope your recon ride went well yesterday. Not sure if you know or not, I've gone over to the Orange side - I hope I don't get disowned by my fellow DRZ brethren......................

    Yeah, I think not using the OEM bracket since I have the Scotts stablizer and installing the speedo / dash on the actual Lynx dash is my only option. I have worked with Ian (who has been awesome to work with) on this issue. Thanks for your input.

    Is the rubber diaphragm itself in good shape? My bog came back a couple years after those AP mods when my diaphragm got a crack in it. Cheap replacement and it was back to boglessness...that's a real word, I swear.

    Any air leaks at the air box to carb junction, or carb to engine junction? Though that generally has an effect on the idle as well.

    Over oiled air filter, or overly dirt air filter? Is it only when snapping the throttle open, or same when rolling the throttle open?

    Ok I'll apologize In advance I'm sure this has been brought up 100 times but I am really wanting a drz400 for an adventure bike. Around here it's nessary to be able to cruze at 70 to 80 mph with hills to get to any dirt roads. so what is needed to accomplish this with out sacrificing to much low end? Also going from 1200 feet up to around 7000ft. I'm currently riding a tu250 and for the most part it's even fine with the exception of the suspension. So saying this I know it has its limitations and I'm ok with that. If I just went to the 38t rear sprocket would that be suffient? I want to keep it mostly stock. I don't mind doing the 3x3 rejeting and maybe exhaust.

    Ya I like those also. Do they have and over heating issues? It gets up to 115 degrees here In the summer. I have been going back and forth those 2 and a klr but I wanted something lighter since I have very limited experience offroad.

    No overheating issues here. I know this is the DRZ thread but I've got both and if I had to get rid of one right now the DRZ would be out. Driving down the 202, the 60 or the 10 on the DRZ is painful. I've given up on making it a dualsport and I truck mine everywhere. It will kick the DR in the slats off road but if you want a true dualsport the DR650 is where it's at.
