Dual headlight SM

So who's gone this route besides the white SM guy with the halos?

So who's gone this route besides the white SM guy with the halos?

There's been a few , search Buell headlight mod .

Sent from my iPhone using Thumper Talk mobile app

This was the first version.  Projector housings inside the Dual Dominator housings.

2 different style projectors.



Last spring i updated the look of the bike and installed Bi-Xenon projector HID lamps with a Buell style screen

This set-up works great, lots of wide pattern light and plenty of high beam.  Both lamps work together on low or high.  



There are also LED halos inside each housing.


Rad, your bike is my favorite one on the site! I've gotta white 08 I'm playing around with. Got a Buell XB light I'm gonna mount up soon. We need to talk wheels to.....

My bike had a Cyclops light on it when i bought it and these bikes are just easy to change up as you see fit.  If it was a Ducati or some high end bike, i would not dive into making this many modifications, but hey, this is just a dirt bike anyway so who cares...  play with it and mod it to make it what you want.  The DRZ is a fun bike to play with.  


You can do searches on "hooligan mod" or "CBR wheels" to find out more about the alloy wheels that people have installed.


Have fun and remember to post up some photos of the new light... :thumbsup:

KTM makes a set of 17" tubeless supermoto wheels (possibly a 16.5 front). Rear is direct fit, 20mm axle. Front takes some doing, as you need bushing spacers for the DRZ 20mm axle, and a rotor adapter. You also need a KTM speedo setup or a trailtech for KTM.


As for the wheels themselves, they are tubeless because they have a special lip on the inside between the safety bead and the "canyon" of the rim where nipples come through, and it uses a large thick rubber band that seals against in that lip, and thus seals the nipple holes. Pretty simple and ingenuous. It's like that DIY taping option that people use, but taken to the next level and built into the rim.


If you look at this thread from SMJ forums, the first photo, you can see the special ridge on the rubber band > http://www.supermotojunkie.com/showthread.php?108279-New-tubeless-option-From-KTM


That said, it might be possible to just order the rims, and then get aftermarket hubs. RAD Mfg makes a front and rear hub w/ 20mm axle for KTM, then you would just need the rotor adapter and the speedo setup.


Sorry for threadjacking, back to Dual Lights!

I'm thinking about building a new mount and using my spare plate to and then turning the lights sideways so they sit like the buell lights except poking through the number plate

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
