You guys rate FMF pipes for these bikes?
I want to, some time in near future, fit a full system.
How much for a full FMF?
Otherwise I'll probably go to Chris Bosson.

Chris will be cheaper, though I'm not sure better.

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away

Like Topbox said but I have been riding for a couple of years and never had a problem with no heat shield even with the baggy type pants. I can vouch that my Q fits like a glove though I'm not sure if the E model uses a different model pipe. It really is a great bike with huge aftermarket support. The new fender looks nice, if you do find that some dirt and mud get's flung over it (because it's short) you can also try a RMZ fender that bolts straight onto the DRZ and also has a nice shape. Also does the E have a snorkel on the airbox ? Don't think so but if it does take it out and enlarge the airbox, the FCR likes lot's of air. Talking about servicing I did mine the other day and for two litres of Motul 5100 and a genuine Suzuki oil filter came to R214, a bargain I'd say ! Your biking is looking good, enjoy !

I'm about to do my first service - do you recommend Motul over other brands and how often do you change your oil and filter?
I was planning on 3000km to be safe.

3000 km is fine. I use Motul cause most shops here stock it and I do not like to jump around on oil brands. Motul is a good motorcycle specific oil and not too expensive. I prefer to use genuine Suzuki oil filters, the DRZ and LTZ quad uses the same filter so most Suzuki dealerships normally have plenty of stock. Remember the little o-ring that sits between the oil filter and oil filter housing, it's easy to lose it or forget to put it back.
