I have a K6 DRZ 250. At 210 lb, I found it necessary to change the front sprocket back a tooth as the lower gears were not all that usuable, thus needing to be ridden in 1st and second a lot, as the subsequent gears were a bit tall for hill climbing. 6th gear is still a bit of a waste. Before changing the drive sprocket, boat pulls about 135 km/h. This is my first trailbike I have owned and not sure if that's quick. I think the best thing I did was remove the original tires and fit some good brigstone knobbys with rim locks. These are a must (found out the hard way). Suspension needs a tweak as a bigger rider as bike tends to bottom out a bit. I chose the Suzi over a number of other brands due to renowned reliability and lower seat height. Bike has had a persistent carby problem from new, refuses to idle, and idles erratically. I believe this is isolated, local dealer is working on it. You don't need a loud bike to have a good day. The Suzi is quiet and pretty comfortable to settle in and ride for the day. It pulls well with smaller riders on it in std form but, if you enjoy a good meal, change the sprocket.

The Suzuki DRZ 250 is a good reliable bike. It has a lot of torque if you use it right. The only bad thing about it is its weight. It's heavy for me only becasue I weigh 45 kilos. I like my bike and it will probably last me for a couple of years.

I have had this bike for about 4-5 months and it's great. It will do 105km around 62 miles per hour. It is a tad bit heavy but not to bad. The electric start is sweet. I have had a few problems with the carburetor but that's the previous owners fault so, the bike is pretty decent.

I beat this bike up... to my surprise it handled very well. I never had a problem with it for what I used it for. I do desert rides and trail rides and it was perfect for that. I was impressed with everything for the most part. I downshift a lot and the tranny held up and the powerband on the bike acted like a two stroke when I got on it. I love this bike!

I love my DR-Z250. I can go anywhere with it. It's got good power and handling. The electric start is awesome and it's easy to maintain. The only thing that I don't like is that it is a little too heavy.

I bought a 2001 drz 250 about the end of March and so far its been great. I have made it street legal for very cheap ,it does lack top end power on the highway but off road it screams.I would have to say its a dope bike for the price.
