I know it's only a baby but counts.......doesn't it ?
'Tis my first offroader so i'm being gentle on myself ;)
This is how it was when i bought it and i'm slowly fiddling with bits to get it right. Think it's had the airbox mod done 'cos the top seems to be missing and it makes a hell of a noise which i'm convinced is mostly intake, not exhaust.
Absolutely it counts, good to see the 'tiddlers' as well (thumbs)

Come on guys and gals with the DRZ's, we need to see photos of your bikes, mods you've done, riding etc

Yep, Austin and Charlie. The bike at the front belongs to Paul who you see near the beginning of the Mondo DVD teaching them to ride off-road in Wales. Unfortunately Paul doesn't do computers, otherwise we'd have over 20 years of experience of these bikes to help us B)

I remember that Opti and Picos were making a sump guard for their DRs & today, I came across this schematic for a Djebel 250XC - may be useful to others:

Come on guys and gals, we've not seen any DR750/800/DR big's yet and there's loads of you with DRZ400's.

I'll start with a photo of Barftone and a DRZ he used to have along with my Doris MK4 at Tintern Abbey after a cracking days trail-riding in the Wye Valley......

After thinking about these, and asking about them for a number of years, I have one all to myself.
Early feedback very positive, cracking bike, need to get saving for a big tank now!
