Kry eerder net 'n stel SM wiele, baie goedkoper en jy eindig op met net een bike om te farkel...

Moenie eers verder dink nie...

Dis die beste opsie.

Dis 'n plesier

Fark Bus........die stem van verantwoordelikheid  :mwink:

Daar is 'n 08 Motard op Junkmail...met die FCR carb en vol Yoshi stelsel...vir onder R40k.......

Ek sukkel net met die spierwit kleur....

Wiele , waar ????? 

Ek weet min , en die manne daar by Moskays vertel my dit sal or R20k wees ????

Die donnerse DRZ'z is meer verslawend as wat sleg vrouens was in my jonger dae :imaposer:

Wiele kan jy 2nd hand kry vir omtrent R10k of selfs minder, jy moet net gumtree dophou of met die joburg regional motard racers gesels. Daar is altyd deals in die rondte...

The most fun I have EVER had on a bike was on n[]va's sm. He lent it to me for a weekend. It had a 424 kit, a hotcam, a yoshi RS2 system and a yoshi CDI, as well as some wicked streetpilot tires. I think getting a DRZ E model and an SM is a bit silly. You can just buy the trim and change between the two. Or buy a different road bike, there are some MONSTER SM's out there. But the DRZ SM is great fun :)

I am the wrong person to talk to though. Though, actually, you won't find anyone to talk sense to in this thread, we all own DRZ's. Go to the GS650 thread  :imaposer:

Hey S-4-B go and have a look at Linex Yamaha. They have a nice 2006 DRZ Sm in yellow. :pot:

The JD Jet kit comes with more options but is not readily available locally. I used a Dynojet kit - ensure it is a Stage II & II kit - and it worked perfectly. Phone PowerHouse Dyno.

The SM will have the handling but will feel pap compared to the E. You will have to spend about 10k to get it on par with the E.

What a cool thread, must say ever since I rode Newguy's DRZ once around the block it has left such an impression on me , that if funds allowed I really wouldn't mind one of these in my stable! Great bike.,......

But this brings my to my actual question:

I am looking for a 2003 and upwards complete front end from a DRZ400. I could start with forks only will eventually have to get all the other part anyway.
 If anybody's breaking up bike for spares, or know of someone , somewhere it would be greatly appreciated. :thumleft:

If no-one buys my Big bore kit I'll have to just save up and make a plan. That will be unfortunate. hehehe.

Why don't you do it yourself? Might be fun... Or save it for when you need to refresh the top end anyway?

That was the "reason" i bought it in the first place, I think my bike's using a bit of oil. I'm pretty sure I'm going to end up putting it in. Just want to work out what else I need to do for it to run properly; well actually I've just acted Julian at superbike to sort me out :) but I was checking out the cost of importing a 'big gun' exhaust system and a yoshi cam  :thumleft:

I want to get my allu/magnesium cylinder bored and nikasil coated.
Where in Cape Town can I get this done?

I was told I have to send it to NSC in Jo'burg, and I've heard some not-so-good things about NSC.
