Seeing that you guys have a lot of time to discuss k@k, I need your help and input. I am in the process of doing exactly this. I am busy designing and building a prototype (I'll post pics later) of a rally fairing for my DRZ. I don't like the AT twin light arrangement, I am looking for a headlight arrangement something like the 990 or 690 KTM. Do you guys now where I can get something like the Trailtech X2 headlights for a good price

How much does a bike end up weighing once kitted like that? Are they DRZ's in the same way that WRC has Subarus and VWs? As in, they have the same outer body but that is where the similarities end?!?!?! Or are these bikes still pretty much DRZs?

Frame and motor, everything else has changed. I mean look at the forks and bodywork.

If you closely look at all the improvements, it made a great bike just so much better IMHO. The xtra weight prolly helps for traction in sands and at high speeds.

Can anyone give me the parts number for the throttle stop screw on the E-model carb? Suzuki are unable to work out what I mean and I can't read a parts fiche well enough to find the fark thing. My carb is missing the stop screw, so when my bike is 'pinned', it's because the carb slide is touching the top of the carb.

Have you tried checking the schematics on Thumpertalk
