? I got a gel seat and just put it on. There was nothing more in the package but a seat. Did you get an OEM Zook seat?

i think most bumpers are the same.thay all go in the outter mounting holes.

then there's at least one thin rectangular one, that should goes over the cdi unit near the center,& one round one i think, which i believe has only 1 hole..

not 100% sure, hope this helps somewhat

Yes, I got an OEM gel seat. It didn't come with any bumpers but the AZM website listed bumpers to go with it, so I ordered them. They plug into small round mounting holes on the underside of the seat base. There are 8 bumpers, 2 small round ones and six paired rectangular ones with varying thicknesses. I'm guessing the round ones go on the front of the seat where it rests against the tank. The others :) Anyone else know?

They go just like with the OEM seat, but if you do not have it available, the round ones go where there is only one hole the shorter ones go in the back, other than that it is pretty obious.

Also I ran mine without the rubbers for over a month as the dealer did not put them, so do not sweat it too much. Even though it is more stable with the bumpers. Personally I love the seat for dirt riding, but I hate it for longer street riding, after 30 min or so it hurts bad....

      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 ?
