    07 Model DRZ400 EKSL for me

    Just brought a new long range Acerbis 16L fuel tank fuel tank for mine only to find that is does not fit the 2003 models onwards which have larger radiators.

    Fits 2000 to 2002 models only.

    Tank is now for sale --- link here

    Otherwise apart from the plank that they call a seat i love mine.
    Got a new rear knobbly to fit this week for the KCAR on Anzac weekend
    Here for a good time, not necessarily a long time

    I knew the tank was for a 2000 -2002 model and did as much research as i could before i brought it.

    I have since found that the tank for the later models will fit all E models from 00 to 09 as it has more clearance but that the tank for the earlier models will not fit the later models

    I've got a '02 EK Model.

    I bought it brand new, did two rides on it and sold it to a guy who lowered it, and then almost immediately traded it in to a Suzuki Dealer. It then sat there until the dealer sold up and he put it in his shed for a rainy day.

    I bought it back a coupla months back, with 2,300km's on the clock.
    As far as I can determine, owners 2 & 3 rode it no more than 800km.

    I've put the suspension back to standard (anyone wanna buy the dog bones to shorten it?). I'm now waiting for a carb seal kit from Japan as the seals degraded while it was sitting).

    I have a 2002 model, great bike, the non road legal one. Gets very little use ie one trail ride this year and one last year!

    You mechanics out there may be able to help with this. I have just found (before what would have been the 2nd trial ride this year) thta when the bike warms up I have a slight oil leak from behind the front sprocket. Is it a biggie to get that fixed?
