Re: DRZ SM or Conversion?
i have 2009 drz400sm and i like it a lot. i can go on and on about it, but i will say it doesnt just blow you back, like pulling the front wheel up. in other words, i would like more power, but it is enough power though. the power is really low end and torque. anyway, i would like to get a full on dirt bike and convert, but it would cost a lot when done and not sure about reliability after riding a lot of miles? plus, after conversion, it would most likely be janky cause of fitment issues and wiring and stuff? man i would get a drz super moto cause its already built for road like dude said about oil....and high mileage. it has perfect brakes, the best front suspension...rear good too, instruments, and just looks like a factory bike, instead of someones dirtbike thats been worked on. id say if you can do it right and get newer bike and pimp out with good stuff, that would be awesome! cost a lot though and not sure if would last, but awesome. othewize, get the drz...it is very fun to ride....it handles, stops, has adequate power, very reliable, looks good, designed for street purpose. my buddy has a 2006 and it really never changed all the way to my year. just get an older one for a few thousand and you are set. i love mine...i would never get rid of it...lots of fun to me. if i could do it over, i would get a husqvarna or aprilia cause much faster, but more money. i got my 2009 for 4800..new! before tax in 2010
Do what you like...like what you do!
