1st...I think the DRZ is only a 400?

Durability/lasting...from what I hear.

Best to worst
1. DRZ 400
2. XR 650
3. WR 450
4. CRF 450

The only differences on SM models is graphics. I think they launched the SM in '05 and there's not one functional difference in any of them.

Between E and S models there is, but that's splitting the hairs.

The 650L is air cooled not liquid like the 650R.
The L has electric start and the R is kick start.
The L is a steal frame and the R is aluminum.
The L sits a tad higher than the R but you can get a lowering link

It seems a little high to me.

A DRZ400sm is built to handle mileage/ highway use and require very little maintenance. Comes from the factory as a street legal ready to ride supermoto. It's built for mileage as opposed to starting line to finish line racing. The power delivery reflects that. Still a ton of fun but alot will complain about the power. Especially comparing it to a converted dirtbike.

A crf450x and a wr450 are much closer to a full race MX bike and their power delivery is much stronger. The maintenance intervals are also a little higher due to the higher performance. More frequent valve check intervals, oil changes, etc. These are the trail bike/ enduro versions of the full race big brothers. Wider ratio transmissions, larger radiators, softer suspension and come hooked up with headlight/tailight already. These bikes are ideal for conversions. The perfect hooligan bikes, IMO. Lots of power and maintenance intervals are still very do-able.

If you don't care at all about how often you change top ends or check valves, get a full race MX bike and do a conversion. You will have a street legal monster.

Generally avoid any SM for sale in Dallas. Nothing again the Dallas guys but that bike will have been ridden really hard. LOL.

That about sums it up. Basically a big correlation between dollars and horsepower on a supermoto. A DRZ will cost you next to nothing to run for a couple years. My Husqvarna which is a basically a race bike with lights costs thousands every two years just to ride it on the street. Only gets about 1,200 miles out of rear 2,000 front. Chain and sprockets every 3,000 miles. Full synthetic 10W-60 and filter every 500 miles. Valve check every 800 miles. New piston and rod kit every 6,000 miles. Riding it for two years and 6,500 miles costs as much as the initial purchase of the bike. Keep that in mind when making your decision.

Uhmm what do you guys think about big bore kits.

I fully believe in the fact that I'd your fast on a slow bike, your unstoppable on anything else.
