CS sprocket looks pretty worn, can't really tell on the rear sprocket.

 

I would replace it all as a set, chain and both sprockets.

Front is bad.  Rear can't tell, need a profile shot.  Might as well replace it if it is as old as the front.  I like Sunstar. Lots of good brands. Even the inexpensive Rocky Mountain ATV house brand "Primary Drive" is not bad.

Yes, Chain and sprocket replacement time for sure......

 

Stock sprocket sizes =

 

S model is 15/44, SM is 15/41, E is 14/47....The 112 link will be ok for S and E...

 

Mate......If you like your current gearing , just count the teeth...... :excuseme:

when you see the red dust everywhere, yes, they're done. that's chain death happening. 

 

your local bike shop may sell chain by the foot, just make sure it's an o or x ring chain, and get steel for both the front and rear sprockets. see the loctite fixes too, or you'll have a problem with the front before you know it.

How good are the pbis? I was thinking them but there all aluminum. How do they hold up? Should i really go with steel or aluminum will be ok and last close to that of steel?

I would go with steel.....jmo, but if you are going to the trouble of buying the whole set-up and starting over, you would be wise to go with something that will last.... ;)

Steel for the win. Aluminium rear sprockets are for racers with big deep pockets and a crew to change them out for you after each race day. Steel lasts way way longer and better overall for durability and maintainence. For sure get an O or X ring chain. They last longer too. Suzuki installed o ring chains for a reason. ebay has chain and sprocket sets from 69 to 80 dollars. Most sets with JT sprockets which are good ones. Good luck.

Good chain. Are you looking for just inexpensive sprocket replacement or do you want higher end gear?

I put a PBI 50 tooth on my husky 610 and a new RK oring chain and had no noticeable wear after 5k miles. The stock steel had noticeable wear after 4k miles....

Good strategy mate......Just be careful, the "modding bug" has a history of "biting hard" when it hits..... :shocked:  :)

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
