    DRZ 400S

    As I await parts for the 690R, I thought I'd make a start on the DRZ.

    She's a nice one with only 1600 miles, plenty of stuff to add to make it RTW ready (round to Waitrose)

    Clarke tank hopefully on this afternoon!

    Are you kidding? Not a chance, it has been sterilised and must remain this way.

    I blame the tyre manufacturers for fitting stickers, makes me weary about riding for fear of spoiling the originality of the new rubber

    I've got one like that, watching with interest

    Surprise you didn't fit the neat proper carbon frame guards, so much neater

    Are you fitting a more durable stainless header pipe

    Yes, I have the stainless header ready to go on. Also have a Happy Trails battery box, Moose Racing headlight guard, Suzuki gel seat, and an OE kick start kit.

    Going to stick an uprated rear spring in it and a 20mm jack up kit.

    The clarke tank is now on.

    Why the jack up kit?

    Doesn't need it

    I tried the Suzuki gel seat and it was not brill, now got a Seat Concepts on from the USA, much better - now 1.5 hour comfy

    Can you do links to some of the suppliers, under the parts fitted

    How was the fit quality of the Clarke Tank, good or just ok?

    Nice bike but such a shame about the colour - everybody knows that the yellow ones are faster.

    Hope you don't mind me sticking my nose in johnfoxlib, but there is one other important mod you should do.

    Fit a case saver in place of the front sprocket cover.

    I had a chain break last week and the chain wrapped its self around the front sprocket, the case is a bit scratched but not holed.

    I remember when my bike locked as clean as yours

    Couple of photos……….

    Johnfoxllb..... I was just wondering.......

    Is your OCD as bad as mine ?......As in, will you be cleaning to perfection all the original parts that you replace and then wrap them in bubble wrap so they can go with the bike when you (inevitably) sell it.....???

    It's a curse isn't it ??......

    Cracking bike......Enjoy.......

    The mods continue unabated.

    New K60's, K-Tech spring, Happy Trails battery box, stainless wheel spacers, stainless downpipe.....

    Everything taken off and cleaned, bagged and tied It's important to put the needs of the next owner before oneself

    Sound advice. What make is the case saver?

    Generally, could those posting images showing a build up of grease, grime and other detritus preface their post with a warning that the photos show scenes which may upset some viewers?
