I have a 2000 DRZ400 with about 2,000 hard woods miles. Here's the problem list so far: 1) Return throttle cable broke probably the first time I twisted the right grip. 2) Right intake valve worn out at ~1,400 miles. 3) case covers crack way too easily. 4) camchain adjuster breaks with no notice at 12,500ft. as a typical Colorado Summer afternoon storm brews. 5) zerk fittings either fall off or refuse to allow grease thru them. With all that said...... It will take an awful nice bike to replace it in the garage.
