Use the search feature, lots of info.

Perhaps try the DRZ FAQ at the top of the forum

Otherwise, you will need to search using the name of the item you want to address.. not just "loctite fixes"your looking for I assume;

Stator

Starter gear

Countershaft sprocket

Primary gear

Counterbalancer gear

I had to pull the stator cover to hold the crankshaft to torque the primary nut, so it's easiest to do both sides at the same time. The worst part is getting the stupid starter gear cover off. I had to use an impact driver to get the phillips screws out. Make sure you keep track of which bolts go in what holes. Some have different lengths. It's not hard once you get in there.

Just put everything back how you found it. I like to take a few pics as I'm disassembling so I know what it should look like when I put it all back. Cell phones are wondrous things.

SPOT ON :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The single best tool in most folks tool box is a camera.

May I suggest, take pics BEFORE disassembling, during, and after incase replacement parts or life takes longer then expected and reassembly takes awhile.

Also.. get a inexpensive camera that uses removable media, even a cheapy will take good pics these days..

But a garage camera means you’re more likely to pick it up and take more pics, dirt , greasy hands or not.. Then if you’re using your I phone or expensive digital camera. And if shit happens and you bust the garage camera.. your only out a few $$ (and not having to replace your cell now) and you can take the removable media to your laptop and still see the pics, vice having them locked up in a cell phone.

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
       
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
