drz shortie levers

Recommended Posts

Clutch can be had.. but not a direct fit last time I checked,, I had to mod a lever a bit.

Another solution,, and the one I took before I went Juice :cry: I got a CR perch and shorty lever.. That way,,if I ever needed another,, most any bike shop would have one that fit.

Brake is not available in a shorty.

If your going to cut the balls off your levers. (wow that sounds funny). Then pleassse put on some hand gaurds. The last thing I want is a TT member impaled with his clutch lever when he goes down. :cry:

Yes cutting the soft aluminum is very easy to cut with a hacksaw and any crappy file will make it smooth again. As if anyone actually uses that extra inch of lever anyway,(except mabye Arsenio Hall) :cry:

Just cut off the balls and file down the ends... Will give you enough lever surface and fit inside the hand guards... I just save the filing until everything id mounted to be sure you cut off enough lever....

if you grab the balls with a big vise grip or channel lock you can bend them

a lil extra so the lever is curvier at the end. then lop off the balls.

you want some curl to keep your fingers from slipping off the end

      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 ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
