All are made from 065 5/8 mild steel mig welded in a table jig for perfect fit.

Will this fit a 2017 DR-Z400SM? And, do you have pictures of both models you are advertising? And, how much shipped to 60527? Thanks.

Joe, 

Thanks for the quick response. I like the sport style best. You mentioned custom colors. Is that an extra cost? And, how close can you come to the blue in the new 2017? I've attached a picture of it. Thanks.

Very nice looking bike Rich. I would have to do it in two coats. Looks like a base coat silver followed by a blue transparent. It would cost and extra $20.00 for the additional material and labor. Also are you planning on keeping your stock tool bag mounted? I can space the tubes to make them either way.Here are our silver and our hammer tone.

Here is  a close up in hammer tone silver vein.

I do plan on keeping my tool kit. That was another question I meant to ask. I would definitely like to keep it so modifying the rack to make it fit would be great. Is there any way you could show me a sample of what it would look like with the Blue transparent over the silver base? If it looks good, I'd like to move forward with this.

I understand your concern on trying to get the perfect match. Here's what I can do. I can powder coat up a small sample piece and send it to you for what the shipping cost. Problem is I do not have any built in raw form at this time, and will not be doing them till I return from spring break late March. I can send you out a sample in the meantime.

Thank You

Joe

Joe,

That will work for me. This way I can see it up close and get a better gauge as far as color comparison and match. Time is not a problem at the moment so no worries there. Let me know when you are finished with the sample and we can go from there.

Also, do they all have that hammered effect? Not entirely a huge fan of it but if that's how they are, no problem there. Thanks for the sample, definitely appreciate the offer.

One other question, I also have a 2009 Yamaha yz250f, would this also fit on there? Looking to do more trail riding with it as opposed to the track and would be nice to have some storage on it.  Thanks again.

Rich

Unfortunately Rich ,the Yamaha is much different mounting , It could be done but I would need one in the shop to mock up. The hammer tone finish is only on that color I showed you. The blue will be smooth. When I get a chance I will get a sample coated and let you know. Are all the 2017sm that color rims?

Post by: RND on March 05, 2017, 06:01:03 PM
All of the 2017s that I've seen are this color. But, that doesn't mean that they all are. It's just the only color I've witnessed. Dealers around here are telling me that they can't keep em in stock. Selling out fast but I also know that they only get 2 or 3 at a time too.

I understand on the yz. Well maybe one day you'll have an opportunity to get one in. Thanks for letting me know.

Where are you located?

Ah hell, I'm right around the corner, sort of, from Joliet.  I live in Willowbrook.  Grew up on the north side of the city though.

Small world, I will be passing through Joliet Saturday on my way to Georgia with the Family for spring break. I plan on hitting the big Suzuki dealer ship in Georgia to get a closer look at the rim color on the 2017 sm. I just had my powder coat supplier send me a few different swatches of the blue i am looking at. Hopefully they will be here before I leave so I can match it at the dealership.

Ok, sounds good.  Keep me posted and have a safe Spring Break.  Mine is coming up here soon too.  I teach in Westmont.

Hi Rich, just got back from Georgia, I stopped at three dealer ships and not one of them had a 2017 SM on the floor. I asked them WTF ? and was told that style bike is not really desirable down here. They did stock KTM though( go figure). Anyways I have a few different samples I will send you and you can see for yourself if they will work for you. Also Rich if they don't match you can go to the web site on the back of the sample and see if you can find something that looks closer. The only problem, the samples look different than the color on the computer. Send me you address and I will get them sent out.

Thanks
Joe

Joe,

Thanks for trying and too bad you didn't have better luck. Let me see what you have and we can go from there. I will see if I can send you a private message with my address rather than leaving it out here.

Hey Rich, just finished up your rack, here it is in raw form.

Post by: RND on March 24, 2017, 02:51:59 PM
Received the samples today. Tardis Blue is the winner. Closest color to the rims for sure. Let's go with that. Rack looks great so far. Can't wait to see the finished product.

Any updates? Just curious to see if you have any more samples. Looking forward to seeing a finished product.

Don't worry, I have not forgot about you , just want to get a good match.

I just picked it up at the post office, I was looking at your foot pegs and seen you left the tiny springs still in them. I hope you have the BB size detente balls that wedge between the bracket and pegs.

Post by: RND on April 11, 2017, 01:34:00 PM
Joe,

Didn't realize that I left a springs in there. I do have the 2 BB sized balls that go with the pegs. What are your thoughts about the great shield?
Title: Re: DRZ 400 S &SM Sport rack & Overland Luggage rack.

I just peeled it off. Still very tacky, should go right back on no problem.

Awesome! Can't wait to see how this all turns out. I have some before pictures that I'll set up with after pictures when all is completed and ready to go. This way others on here can see your work. After sending those parts out I should have sent along my RTIC tumbler along to have you powder coat that the same color as well. Would have looked cool. Have you ever done those? I've seen Yeti tumblers done before. Anyhow, shoot some pictures of your progress if you could.

Powder will be here today! I will keep you posted. And yes I have done the tumblers.
