    Looks to be a "e" model with the kick start and no rear sub frame.

    Rocky mountain ATV for plastic.

    Factory for overflow bottle. It will just fit better.

    Bars, lots of options. Research the different bends in the catalogs. Another option is to add bar risers. Check out Rox Risers. Get the ones with adaptors to accommodate fat bars if you don't want to replace the stock 7/8" bars now, but might sometime in the future.

    If you are starting on a project bike why not use USD RM forks? They are a lot stronger in every way than DRZ forks.

    Looks like a kicker to me. Hard to tell but I don't see a starter.

    The S had different fork and shock up to 2001. 2002 it got the same same as the E front and back although the rear had a different spring weight. The forks were identical to the E.

    Here is the list:

    If I recall 2002 was a transition year, check the top of the forks for an air bleed screw, the early years did not have as good of forks as the later bikes.
    enjoy

    I would look around some more due to the rust and being kick only resale will be difficult. Does it have a street title?

    No title and it appears to be dirt. He said that the bike was in Moab about a month ago for its final ride. Ill check it out tomorrow and get back to ya'll. Im getting it for pretty darn cheap and I am planning on keeping it for a year or 2 so Im not so worried about resale. Im trading it for a trailer I got for free. Ive put $300 into the trailer and we are working on a straight across trade but who knows.

    Ill get back to every. Thanks again!

    I fitted a second hand 17 LTR Safari Tank and finally got around to fitting my Light Speed frame protectors that I've had in the shed for 6 months.

    Oil changed, air filter cleaned and oiled, chain cleaned, adjusted and lubed. A few other things tightened, cleaned and lubed and she's ready to punish again over Xmas. I just need to find some glue to put those case savers on.

    Just installed a kick starter on my E. Do I need the decompression lever? I bought it mostly for backup and cold starting. It was easy enough to kick start without it.

    I have the 4 cell Ballistic battery and it just doesn't cut it when it's cold out. Once the engine is warm it's good. Starts instantly.

    I wasn't sure when I put my kit in... But I'm glad that I did do it. It comes in handy to clear the cylinder of you flood it etc.
