2007 DRZ400E Clutch cable/lever Question

Recommended Posts

I'm sure this will turn out to be a stupid question.  I just bought a 2007 DRZ400E and it is missing some parts which I am trying to identify/replace.

 

The mechanic I purchased the bike from said the cable in the picture below belonged to the decompression lever (which I can't imagine is correct?)  Anyone know what is missing?   This cable looks more like a second clutch cable.  And Fig 43 below states this is the  Clutch assembly.  I cannot find it in my shop manual or a similar part online.

 

I appreciate any help.

Cable is for manual decomp and you're missing the lever (little black one in pic below):

Lever assembly (part #10) can be found here: http://www.ronayers.com/LEFT-HANDLE-LEVER-DR-Z400Y-K1-K2-K3-K4-C196584.aspx

 

The manual decomp was standard on early kick-start DRZ-400 models.  Your E model should have camshafts with built-in automatic decomp mechanisms.  The mechanic or previous owner, retrofitted the manual decomp.  Does your bike also have a kick-start?  The threaded hole on the side of the clutch perch is for a clutch safety switch, which probably was also bypassed by the previous owner.

Thanks!  Yeah this bike is kind of weird.  It was used by the border patrol, re-sold in auction, then sat in a mechanics shop for 3 years.  It was fairly beaten and stripped by the time I took possession.

 

I has both e-start and kick, which is nice.

 

It does not have FCR carb, which sux.   :(   Still cannot figure out how it does not have the FCR.
