Drz 400 SM

Here is a few pictures of my 07 Drz in front of my 07 HHR. Drz has about 2500 miles on it now. Mods included full yosh system, 3x3 mod to the air box, Jet kit, hand guards and the bag and rack on back to carry junk. Fun bike to own and gets 39 mpg on most good days and I'm sure it would get better Been to Norway on it once.

so you can't reach the pegs while sitting on it?
I never understood people who said they're too short to ride a bike. if you can put one foot down, you're tall enough.

I can put a foot down but I feel uncomfortable if I can't at least tip toe on both feet. I know dirt bikes normally have a high seat height so is it normal to only be able to have 1 foot down? I honestly have no clue and that's why I'm asking.

If you can get one foot down your Ok to ride. A lot of people I know have to stop and start on a milk box.

It's really weird that even though it seems like there's many DRZs out there, I've only seen about two on roads around Chicago.
What's up with that?

Nice bike


I've liked the DRZ-SM ever since I first saw one. Whenever I go thru my mental list of possible next bikes it keeps popping up. I don't care that its not hardcore SM. I rode Pauls for a short while and liked it a lot.

Nice ride.

At least you were able to ride at norway once. I am going to miss that place.

I saw one of those on the street a while back and it actually looked like the perfect bike for me.

It's actually cheaper than the BB kit. It also makes a lot bigger power difference than the big bore.
I personally feel that the FCR should be the first item on the mods list of DRZ owners. Then pipe, BB, cams etc.

I've got a few spots, there's not a lot of good ones that you won't get kicked out of. Hit me up if you wanna ride out

I agree completely. I ended up blowing up the top end pinned in 5th on the highway for too long so I figured I might as well get the good stuff while I was in there. My plan was the FCR first until that happened. I'll get it eventually but so far I'm happy with the bike, it's tons of fun

Tomorrow is doable, I live in Berwyn. PM Imafrogg, we're hitting up the lots this weekend. He can give you directions or roll with me, but I'll be putting mine in my truck. I usually truck it to the lots in case I break something

I got mine for 3 bills on eBay and then spent maybe another $80 on the correct intake bell, jets etc. from Sudco.
No reason to spend 600 bucks on a new one.

I looked at that way, but afraid of getting the wrong card setup. Many different FCR carbs listed.

I'll go looking again in a few minutes on Ebay.
