Mollydog where are you getting your information for this as i would like to read up on it
It's been a while Wesley ... I sold my DRZ-E in 2003. You could be right, but a quick look at piston part numbers may answer your question? Or could be it's a different HEAD design (higher compression on E model?) and Piston is the same?
Lots of info can be found here:
DR-Z 400 - ThumperTalk
The kids there talk about ALL DRZ models (K, E, S, SM).
I attended the DRZ400S intro in California ... the Suzuki guys covered some of the differences ... and can't recall every detail but do remember I was astounded just how different the bikes really are. (I think that was in 2001)
USA models had to pass our EPA/CARB regulations ... but I think the S is roughly the same world wide. The E model is Off Road Only ... so fewer restrictions.
