As far as I know ,

No black plastic 2.6 tank (Beside IMS/Clarke , but they are bigger then 2.6 , I think 2.9... not sure)

The only 2.6 tank for E is the clear IMS that Pairwaidg (X-Burned's bike) has.

I might be wrong , but this is what I remmember.

A KLX400R (DRZ400E equiv). Has a plastic tank just like the E model DRZ but its black.

That is what he is after. I don't blame him either. Its black, plastic and probably can get one cheaper than any of the IMS or Clarke ones. :cry::cry:

Actually this tank bolts on to the frame and uses a strap in the back because it is an E tank.

If you removed the horn off its bracket you would have one place to bolt the tank. The other side wouldn't though but it would work..... You would have to come up with a way to hook the strap up on the back of the tank though. I used a piece of aluminum on my S. Wish I had a pic to demonstrate. I have no idea about the fan.

I wouldn't bet on getting one cheaper than an ims or acerbis or whatever, they are sold by ron ayers for $430.66. One other nice thing about them is that I have never heard nor have I ever had a fittment issue with one.

Good Question Alo-

Nate - Where'd you see a stock klx400r tank go cheap??? I've seen a couple of drz-e's for sale, not at a price I'd exactly call cheap, but never a klx. I do believe I have seen one klx-sr for sale though.

Anyone have a picture of whatthe 3.2 ims for the S model looks like on the bike, I have a clarke and am not sure I wouldn't like to have a smaller tank, and save the clarke for long trips...

If I recall I have seen at least a couple trickle onto ebay. Few and far between I suppose.

      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 ?
