Rear bag option and signal pic

I had to take some pics of my bike to show my GPR for another thread and thought I'd take a couple of the rear bag I use for tools and stuff. When I got my bike the stock bag was a mess, so I just took it off. I found this bag at Target, in the luggage section. It is a bathroom kit bag. It has several compartments, some that are waterproof. Plus some elastic loops for holding tools. The top outside pocket works great for my cell phone and wallet. I carry the tools you see, plus a spare tube and tire irons in it all the time.


As a bonus in that picture you can see the smaller rear signals I got for $15 at Cycle Gear. The next picture show the bag open.


The way I mounted it was with a 1/4" thick piece of tempered masonite (hardboard) the same size as the bag. It is stuck inside the bottom compartment and acts as a stiffener so the bag doesn't flop. I used the stock bag mounting bolts and go right into the normal mount holes on the S subframe. I covered the bolt heads with a few layers of duct tape so they don't rub the tube that is in that compartment.

Nice!! I'll have a look at my local target to see if I find this bag, as I thought about installing something similar (I was thinking in a videocamera bag) to take some food and drink for my trips. For the tools I use a bag like this:


(Made in Spain by HEBO)

They have something similar to yours for the rear, but it's smaller and less practical:


Thanks for the pics!! :cry:

Today, I broke one of my stock turn signals. It was only a matter of time. I like those turn signals. I went to the Cycle Gear, Inc. website but couldn't tell which ones you had. Do they mount-up easily and fit good? If so, could you please post the part number? Also, nice job on the bag. My stock bag just started ripping. I might be looking to do this also. Thanks! - Bill


It looks nice!! And it's not very expensive...

The info says: "you can remove it from a separate base and take your tools directly to the job". Is it easy to remove?

The base bolts on just like any other bag.

It has velcro on it.

The bottom of the bag has the other part of velcro on it.

Just undo the two hold-down straps and remove bag.

Good luck with your choice.

Corky :cry: :cry:

corky- any pictures of the bag on your bike? and maybe the mount on the bike?

It seems a very nice system... and this bag is (according to its measures and the pic of the other one) narrower than the Target's one, and engineered specifically for a dual bike... it seems to me that this one's gonna win!!

Thanks!! :cry: :cry:

corky- any pictures of the bag on your bike? and maybe the mount on the bike?

Yes! :cry: It would help us to decide seeing it in your bike...

I don't have any picts of the bag on my bike.

Just got back from a Baja trip.

The guy with the blue DR-z S has one on his bike.

Can't see it to well.

Go here for picts.

Will take some of my bike to nite and send to one of you guys to post.

I can't how to.

Some one send me an e-mail address so I can send picts as an attachment.

Corky :cry: :cry:

Wow!! I'm sure you had lots of fun in this trip!!!

BTW.- I have just ordered one bag for my DRZ... it looks really good in your buddy's bike and I intend to install it as he did, so that it fits better.

Anyway, I'm sure that we all would love to see the rear of your bike... Thanks for everything!!! :cry: :cry:

I answered your PM, but for others here is the link to the signals on cycle gear. $15 a pair, so I don't mind trashing them every six months or so. Turn Signals

Here it is !

Wolfman bag on rear of 2001 DR-Z 400 with SRC rear fender brace and rack






"SRC Rear Fender Brace" Do you have the contact info to order?


Thank you for posting the pictures.

Hope it helps someone make a decision.


Heres the SRC web site.

The great thing about this rack is the grab handles.

Good luck, Corky :cry: :cry:

Perfect!!! It will fit like a glove here:


(taking out the rubber bands that I use to take one or two bottles of water...)

I placed my order yesterday, so in some days I'll be a WolfmanLuggageEnduroTool user...

Thanks again!! :cry: :cry:

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      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!
