I thought about that but didn't want to mess up the nice powder coating. Then it'd be ugly. Yes, it's an ugly DRZ but let's not dip to KLR status here.So, why not use a file and simplify your life, then a little spray paint, Bob's your uncle and cost is much lower.
Mike - with the rear tire off the ground move it up and down until the bolts line up. It is much easier if you have two people.Odd problem on lowering the DRZ: I can get one side of the links on, throw the two bolts through, but can't get the other side on. Seems to be off about 1/8" and there is nothing to budge. I'll try to post pics in the morning but I think something is bent. Worried that now that it is off I might not even get the original links back on.
Thanks sandman. I've had help and the bolts are through the assembly doing that. I'm going to try again cause I see a gap where the bolts go in and it should be flush.Mike - with the rear tire off the ground move it up and down until the bolts line up. It is much easier if you have two people.
