ok cool I'll check out those links. I've started talking my mom into the idea and still have to talk to my dad. I did some research and the DS has a height of 36.8" with 21fr/18rr, the SM version is at exactly 35" with 17/17...with some other little stuff like a gel seat or shave to stocker I think I could definitely ride it...my 150R's seat is at 34" and I can flat one foot or tiptoe both...but with the right setup like move the forks up and maybe a different spring then I think I'd be golden
You looking at around 1200 for a complete wheel set or you can buy just the hoops and have them laced to your stock hubs. Check out Procycle - Supermoto Wheels, Rims, Spokes, & Parts for wheels and anything else you might need.How much do you guys think the different rims/tires, other SM conversion stuff would cost to turn the DS into an SM? I know it'd definitely be way less than another bike like the 230, but what would I be looking at? A couple hundered, maybe 2k? I do not know!!!!
I know that Witdogg had his KX250F lowered 1.5". These guys did it for him MX-Tech.com - MX-Tech Suspensions – Motocross, Enduro & Supermoto suspension
Mmk I'll check them out too...also I think I might be able to get a good deal from our friends shop. I guess he has a awesome decked out drz400sm and works real close with the local Suzuki dealer so he might be able to hook me up with some parts, so I'm gonna also talk to himYou looking at around 1200 for a complete wheel set or you can buy just the hoops and have them laced to your stock hubs.

thanks....i was able to navigate my way to this also on the site http://www.koubalink.com/populardrzfaq.html
It will look fine with the standard forks, here is a 650 thats been converted to a smthanks....
so i was lookin at our drz400s and online at the sm version......I can't believe I missed the fact that the front forks are inverted on the sm.....would the ds version look funny with the sm wheels? opinions?
