I'm a big fan of Australian farkle and B&B Offroad products in particular. Why you'd almost think our Australian friends love the DR and DRZ as much as we do. :2_thumbsup:

B&B offers a number of quality products for many bikes. In particular they have a great selection of DR bits. So far I'm using their frame guards, oil cooler guard and case saver.

Ordering for international shipping is easy. Just send them an e-mail with what you want and your shipping address. They'll let you know how much with shipping, which is surprisingly inexpensive, like really surprising, and when you're ready you can give them your pay pal e-mail and they'll send an invoice. With the exchange rate what it is, getting these parts in from Australia is a very good deal right now.

Orders ship fast and arrive stateside in a few days. The only holdup is the parts sitting in customs a few days on our side. But you get an Austrslian post tracking number so you can check status.

Very friendly people too.

Here's a link to the Suzuki section of their site. Prices are listed in Australian ounces of beer or something, so mutiply by about .77 to get the price in 'Merica Money.

https://bboffroad.com.au/brands/suzuki

So the case saver replaces the factory plastic cover and gives you a real saver. The best word to describe this is "beefy". When you hold it in your hand you can feel the quality of it. However it's not ridiculous heavy as it's made out of high quality Aluminum, or Al-you-min-E-um.

It comes with all the mounting bolts and goes right on very precisely without trouble. I like this saver because you can easily check status of your sprocket, lube a chain, check for oil leaks and protect your case from the chain all in one. Unlike a completely open type design I don't have to be paranoid about a pants leg or something getting caught in the chain.

I think it looks cool too.

[Australia guys, just teasing you a bit. Much love. It was Mark from Biker Bits that inspired me to catch a case of the farkles :drinks: ]

So here are a couple of pictures of it on my bike. Get you one.

The best looking B&B product for the DR is their alloy rack.
Beautiful alloy artwork.

Unfortunately I use a Ventura system for the ease of use and extra load-out capacity.
The Ventura had to have extra strengthening added for off-road use. I found out the hard way.

Yeah that rack is a work of art. Unfortunately our bikes come with the giant chunk of shite tail light so it won't fit without doing a swap. I guess it's some govt. regulation here about minimum size and reflectors. The bureaucrats save the day again. :BevButt:

Ya, get that stock tail light off of your machine.... there is a good chance, especially if you venture off road, that it is going to fall off anyway. Search for the DR250 tail light... :good:

I'm looking at my PayPal receipt. I purchased the case saver above and their oil cooler guard at the same time.

Total price with shipping for both was: $136.40 'Merica Money. Depends on the exchange rate on the day you pay.

But for both products and shipping, that's a good bargain. As of today that's about:

Oil Cooler Guard: $65.45 US
Case Saver: $52.36 US
So Shipping was about: $19.00 US

P.S. You can also see their frame guards I have on in the picture above. I got those earlier this year. The right side guard covers the rear brake cylinder. About $89.00 US.
