It's time to say goodbye.

My 03 DR-Z400S is for sale.


Special thanks to all the technical leaders here in the DRZ forum for the unbelieveable free help you've given me and for the best DRZ advice in the Nation or anywhere. I hope to continue to see many of my DRZ friends I've met here in the other TT forums.

The DRZ forum is the best. We would all like to take it with us. :)

I knew you would sell. It would be crazy to keep the red headed step child just because. It would have ended up neglected any way if you like your new bike so well.

I thought you might keep it for DS rides. I guess the one you did wasn't that fun.

But what about the broken toe 200, sheetiron 300, or reno 200.

You wont miss the plate on the Z...?

Selling is probably best, no sense keeping around a $4000 toy you wont use.

1.) riding on pavement is a waste of good rubber.

2.) I don't like leaving boomer home for two day official DS rides. Don't like DS rides neither. This is a personal choice, something I've discovered about my riding tastes - I don't like Dual sporting, didn't know that about myself when I bought the #1 trail bike and world's best dual sport.

3.) see reason 1

4.) I will miss the ability to hop up on the road occasionally with the plate at some local spots, but that was a rare occurance mostly.

      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 ?
