If you have the standard Suzuki mirrors on your DRZ and battling to see behind you i make extensions to move your mirrors outwards or up by 50mm.
Will only work on the standard mirrors!

Hi borrowed the following pic from the DRZ thread on ADV,

I need to do something about that rear light of my DRZ, anyone know of a local supplier of after-market rear lights similar as in the picture. I will try local first - there is available on the TT store

There are really neat lights available... Just look around.. I found a nice small one for my WR at Craigs in Maitland, Cape town.. LED so a bit dear but easy to fit and a hardy, effective light.. About R350 I don't know who you guys have up there..

Hi there,

Im in Cape Town, just about to take delivery of a 2006 DRZ 400E. This is after my KTM 690 e bummed out on a recent trip to Angola. See that story here... (just a trailer)

http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=133427.0

Im going to use the DRZ for some dirt-biased adventure riding, normally quite far from fuel or water. Normally quite far beyond by ability level.

Going to order:

- a bash plate
- an IMS tank (because the bigger 28l safari tanks, which would suit me better, seem overpriced),
- bark buster hand guards
- some kind of minimalist luggage rack, as I use Ortlieb soft luggage and they dont need anything except to be kept off the exhaust

Anyone know the cheapest place to get this stuff from (ideally a one-stop US merchant - Im assuming there are not local dealers here in SA for all this stuff)? And is there anything else Im definitely going to need before I place the order? I see people talking about getting casings and armour and stuff. Is that necessary?  Want to keep the bike as light and simple as I can, while making sure it can carry me and camping stuff into all kinds of trouble in a reliable way.

Thanks in advance for any tips/advice - Im excited about joining the DRZ clan in SA.

wheelingcyclesupply? I'd go for the side covers, they can't weigh much they are comparatively cheap. I don't have any but will get as soon as I do an order.
