    Nice job on those mirrors! Can't beat that price! How's the vibration?

    How do you like those tires? Do you ride a lot of single track with them? Are they IRC, Shinkos, etc?

    Just curious, Is there a particular reason so many bikes here don't have chain guards?


    I just noticed the other day that I don't have one, and go to looking around here to see what they look like. Was kind of surprised at how few pictures I found with vs. without.

    The E model don't have it and most riders on other models remove it (most likely). It collect dirt/mud etc... and it's annoying when cleaning the chain. I even removed it of my DR650. Some even when replacing the swing arm they use an E one.

    Thanks,

    this is the tail light
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Suzuki-DRZ4...Parts_Accessories&hash=item5d3600f622&vxp=mtr

    and the blinkers

    http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product/Micro_Arrow_Turn_Signal/web1006873

    Other mods are just basic, TT case savers, UNI rad guards, 3X3, jet kit, keintech fuel screw, MRD/SSW pipe, TTO Tacho and Temp Sensors, handlebar risers, SM front fender, etc

    Thanks m8, Vibration seems to be a non issue, i hit 85+ mph with them the other day, and they were still usable, the brush guards are pretty sturdy against wind.

    Love the tires, Shinko 244's front 2.75-21 and rear 5.10-18, affordable and they do great both on and off road, i ride 60-70 miles of trials every weekend, they do very well imo, and the $85 price tag for a set is real nice too.

    This is the terrain i ride on.

    Unless your adept at monitoring/adjusting your tenioner just stick with a new tensioner acct. its the same engine so just buy 2013 parts.

    Did you create custom mounting brackets for the mirrors? The local auto parts stores in my area (KC, MO) only have the stick on blind spot mirrors, nothing like what I see in your pictures.

    The FCR carb is pretty popular. Check out videos on youtube or more info at the TT website.

    Yeah, i just cut up 2 strips of plastic and stuck the blind spot mirrors onto it with the self sticking tape, then put some plastic epoxy around the edges to make it stronger, very easy to do.

    Not sure, I always buy 2010 parts, gets rid of the confusion (or 2007 if its an e model, as that was the last year) but it somewhere around there they started fixing the glitches

    The acct works fine, set it and forget it, if it starts making noise its time for a new timing chain, no amout of manual adjustment will fix that.
