New 2016 DRZ400 SM in San Antonio

Hey Guys,


new to forum.  Joined about a year ago, but finally purchased a 2016 DRZ400SM.  Lots of mods coming.  Already ordered the full FMF header and pipe.  Doing the FMX CR kit next with box removal and direct connect K&N filter.  


Ordering clutch/hand brake levers and shifter and foot brake levers next.  


open to suggestions.  been reading on the forum for weeks.  


Anyone in the San Antonio area?

Congrats on a smart purchase, your gonna love it and somedays dislike it..


Only thing i personally think you need is some nice LED lights and signals, really cleans the bike up from the stock lights.


The seat may be the best improvement you can make, the stock is a 2x4 with paper towels on top.

Do a little digging and you will find a seat that wont hurt after 50 miles.


I'm ready to ship mine out to Fisher Seats cause after 2 seasons on my 2014 my tailbone demands it.


Enjoy that DRZ, it may not be the baddest out there but it is in the top 3 for fun.

The stock seat is miserable. I think I'm going to end up with a Sargent. I had one on my vstrom and versys. The seat is hurting my ishial tuberosity and hip joints after 150 mi

Seems like a million led turn signal options. What are you running. Fender eliminator? Thinking drc looks solid

FMX CR? Freestyle Motocross Cylinder replacement? Jk FCR 39 MX. Make sure you also buy the appropriate jet kit or jets also. Also if I remember correctly (been a awhile since I read an air filter thread) but many don't run a KN on the DRZ due to problems filtering dust, dirt, sand as well as a foam filter.

I'm running the TST Industries Integrated Tail light and fender eliminator on my '15 SM. It's one of the best looking kits out there in my opinion, definitely worth a look  :thumbsup:



The only other thing I can suggest is some case savers. 


I actually have some new, never mounted, black anodized TT case savers for sale if your interested  ;)

I went with DRC Edge kit, nice and sleek and bright.

R U still looking for DRZ400 SM riders in SAT? Thanks.

Tst industries has flush mount blinkers for the front as well. Really looks nice

      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
