What's happening here? I need help!

Recommended Posts

So this is how the story goes, i bring my bike outside on the street btw I like in Nyc. It's night time about 8-9 pm, I go to start it up and I realize that I forgot my keys upstairs. I go get my keys by the time I get back my bike was pushed over the kickstand crying for me help. I could believe it I was shocked. Some little 18 yo college freshman punk probably pushed it over because they come on this particular block to smoke weed and do other s**t. Anyways as you can see in the photo the the blue side I assume didn't get damaged but the red one is clearly messed up and I dont know how to go by fixing this. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you. (I also included a picture of the whole bike.)

The bars are rubber mounted so they twist before they bend. Take the bars off, then undo the bolts holding the clamps on. Then just put everything back together and it should be straight again. You'll see what I'm talking about when you start taking it apart.

Eh I did the same thing except a 40mph low side in a dirt field trying to ride a drz400sm with stock tires like a dirtbike the first week I had my drz. 

 

It goes back easy.  Like Gsxrstuntdrz said.

      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 ?
