Suzuki DRZ 400 An honest review!

OK. goes my honest review of my drz 400!!

I owned my drz for 6 months, some thieving scumbags to take it, and another bike out of my i only hope they it and injure themselves severely!

My was a 51 reg, and had 2400 genuine and was serviced every year, so was condition.I paid Ј2200, included a set of supermoto wheels tyres and brake disk

So i thought it would be a fitting to write a review to let everyone how GREAT these bikes

Right, as per my previous bike i,ll start at the front and my way back!

Front wheel. my bike was to a supermoto with exel and talon hubs and a huge disk, but i also rode the on its standard 21inch wheels and 18inch back, the standard to start then, a good of tyres available, the brakes are (if serviced regularly) but you need to on top of the rims and spokes! 1 season attention and they will to look tatty!

The front end a suprising amount of grip the standard wheels, it doesnt inspiring when you see a skinny but it can be hustled along at a good as long as you stay off the brakes as those forks will a long way and spit you off!

The themselves are a decent enough not adjustable, but they offer a lot of and decent enough damping again tho, get behind fork girders and give it a clean up every now and then!

The steering on the drz is good, great lock can be turned in the road ease. Alltho the Actual lock (as in the device to lock the in place) is poor, and as i found is easily defeated by thieves!

The are great! being digital are clear and easy to use and are well lit at

The clutch and brake levers are spaced and are very light in and the switch gear is typical a pleasure to use and well built.

The is an absolute gem! only out 33bhp, but it has great amounts of for a 400, remember people is a single cylinder thumper, so big of lovely torque! But if you do decide to buy a or currently have a standard you MUST invest in an FMF powerbomb exhaust, a KN filter, an iridium plug, a James Dean jet and a Storm extended fuel screw (for all the above i estimate Ј350) This may like a lot of money, but it really is the cash!

I had my bike set up by a reputable company in (uk) and the bike went making 29bhp to a Proven and the noise was amazing! popping and on the over-run.

When standard the will loft the front in first easily, and maybe in with a bit of clutch, but with mods it was wheelying off the throttle in and in third off the clutch!

The engine is very lumpy low in the rev range tho.

The engine is a proven unit, beeing reliable, and very easy to

The overall electrics on the bike average, the light beeing and bright.

The seat is absolutely seriously its like torture if you to ride any more than 40 maybe its just my skinny

Tank range seemed enough allthough i couldnt be as my bike was purely a hooligan for having fun on so i never really about mpg or tank range, i filled it up whenever i got it out of the garage!

The rear of the bike is a standard rear disk brake is very effective, and a 18 (or possibly 19) spoked wheel.

I know may sound like an average but sometimes a bike is a lot more the sum of its parts!

On paper the drz seems an average bike, But im sure if you ask 90% of drz they will tell you how the bike is!

And if, like me, youre a bit of a at times, then either opt for the or get youreslf a set of supermoto wheels! the supermoto wheels, the bike is it can be thrown round corners nothing else! i mean you can sportsbikes with the corner it can carry, and it can pull giant up to traffic lights. then away!

Overall then, a brilliant bike! i would recomend one to Not massively fast (90mph) but has lots of character and cheap and to maintain!

IF you do own one tho i suggest you lock it up well. as thieves love bikes. and they are easily
