I got the Acerbis tank from ProCycle in the USA. Found out subsequently the Runner (Conrad) had one in stock so if you're still looking you can try him.
Got pannier brackets (for soft panniers) made by Man on the Moon (Martin of OffRoad Touring & Equipment - see my post earlier on the DR thread. Am very happy with these.

hey - good choice!!!  Wishing you many happy miles of travelling. I've had mine for 1 1/2 years and love it.  (especially now that summer's here again)  Waiting for some ride reports... soon.

The DR and DRZ uses the same headlight shrfoud, therefor this fairing will fit nicely. I put a template somewhere in this section.
Its made of 3mm Polypropylene and can be had in black or translucent white.

By the way, let us know about that Airage pipe please. Sound? Does the bike run leaner with it?
