Ot: 2005 Gasgas 450 Fse...

Recommended Posts

I was on the GAS GAS site yesterday...2005 GasGas 450 FSE sure does look nice. If I were back in the U.S. and had a GasGas dealer close by I'd be darned tempted to buy one...Looks like it's street legal (blinkers)...well at least maybe in some states...Is that engine made by Suzuki?? Looks very similar to DRZ engine...Would really like to try that Fuel Injected carb to see what it's like...I think in another 10 years or so we'll all be on fuel injection whether we want it or not (Cuz of emissions)...Anybody here thinking about getting this bike??

We have a dealer nearby, mostly he has GasGas quads/ATVs in his showroom, but he will order gas gas bikes and does service them.

I was seriously looking at the FSE, but I think one day I may buy a Gasgas two stroke, meanwhile for my main dual sport I'm keeping the DRZ S. For my off road bike, even if I could get it tagged in CA I'm not gonna. I don't want any more blinkers on my dirt bike. Here's is my dirt bike choice. It's even prettier then the FSE;


this next link is an austrailian bike that has the license plate holder on the tail of the bike. Its a good pic.


I've seen some of Gasgas 2 strokes in action and I like the way they sound and seem to go strong everywhere. I bet the FSE 4 stroke is a cool bike, yes that does look like a DRZ style motor. GG and husky share the same Marzocchi front forks.

it is very similar looking to the drz engine but certianly not the same engine. this very topic was discussed about 6 months ago.

      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?

      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!

      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 ?
