They are a good reliable cheap to own bike. Power & torque is good enough for the average rider. Only a few add on mods required to make it ride better. I would not buy another due to its weight, would probably pay more for a KTM, however due to reliability it would make an excellent second bike.
Cheap and reliable bike for trials and getting around and having fun.
You would need to spend about $1000 to get better handle bars and high rise kit, bark busters & smaller rear sprocket (45 tooth) plus remove all the extra weight. The bike is a bit heavy for tight tracks and hilly / rocky work but does manage well. Standard suspension not really suited for heavy off road work, however its good enough.

Such a great bike to ride, if we ever have a nuclear war two things will be left Cockroaches and DRZ400. It is such a fun bike to ride and with some simple mods $1000 (Suspension, Bark Busters, Bigger Back Sproket, Bar Raisers) you have a serious weekend weapon for $8000. Just to clarify it won't be as good as some of the more serious Enduro Weapons KTM, CRF but if you are starting out or not into serious enduro racing this is the bike for you.
Cheap (brand new I saw a price of $7000 in a shop in Melbourne) Easy to Maintain and Service yourself. Loads of Power for a 400 in Mid to Low Range very easy to Start.
Handle Bars too low, front springs way too soft for serious off road riding, feels a little heavy for single track work.

My DRZ400E started weeping oil from head cover gasket, and I notice the frame oil tank is slightly overpressured. The head cover has 2 hoses to it. Hose A is at the middle right, goes to oil separator tank. All clear, not pinched, blows through to atmosphere. Hose B (10 on suzuki diagrams) goes to the frame oil tank. It does NOT blow though into the head cover like I expected. What is in the cover at this hose? Should it just be open?

Forget all that - both hoses go straight into the head cover, no restrictions. Turns out the problem was a kinked hose from the oil separator box to atmosphere (below the bike)
