The title says it all. There is a DRZ-SM and a 625 SMC for sale near me. I hear a lot of people say the DRZ doesnt have a lot of guts, but at ~140 lbs will I really notice? The DRZ is $800 cheaper and is obviously easier to find parts for, hence my question.
The DRZ is a great platform for modding, there's a huge aftermarket. I used to want a ktm, or just any 450 really, but since I installed an MRD pipe, FCR carb, HotCams, and Stainless lines, I LOVE the thing!
625s are awesome too. Way more power outta the box, and more high end parts. The DRZ is, and does feel, lighter though, and is less vibey. I recently rode a 625 and it was pretty cool, but I still love my DRZ!
If you can find a DRZ with a few mods(pipe and carb at least) already done, I think that would be your best choice, but you really can't go wrong either way.
Thanks for the replies guys. For reference the DRZ is jetted with a full yosh kit and the guy took two teeth off the back sprocket. It also has HIDS, new front fender, and cleaned up rear. Some nice goodies already.
