Long story short- got rid of my DRZ400SM and got this instead. I missed the dirt too much.
Specs: 1996 XR600R with a 2001 crate motor.
Acc: 4.0 gal tank, Al Baker's exhaust, Acerbis plastics, excel wheels, AceWell computer and some other misc stuff. I put on some Renthal kevlar grips, handguards and mirrors yesterday. USD conversion is in the works now.

Today:

Thank you! The previous owner didn't believe in degreaser, so I've spent all my free time cleaning it up.

Hadn't seen any updates in this section in a few days, so I thought I would throw mine up here. Updated her a little. Put a bigger tank, opened up the Airbox, Acerbis mirrors (which are pretty useless by the way), and an Endurance Speedo.

what kind of tank is that cbretr2? sucks to hear about the mirrors. i hate when stuff like that happens when i buy new parts. they look a little small and they dont stick out enough. that a crf 400 fender with the baja designs tail light? ive done the same with my bike. how is it working out for you? any problems so far?

Its a Clarke 4 gallon. That upgrade has been needed for a long time. I took a chance with the mirrors. The originals broke when it fell over in the garage. Kickstand is to long with the 17in wheels on it. Almost sits vertical. I still have the dirt wheels and ride dirt every now and then. Mirrors vibrate a lot and yes they dont stick out far enough. Have to work for now.

That is a crf fender i had laying around(front and back) from my 450r. Got an Acerbis sumo front fender but it doesn't stop mud to well when the 21in is on. Just never changed it back. Yes Baja designs LED taillight. No problems so far.
