for the record, the bike had 4981 miles, 80% dirt, had some scracthes, but a long list of quality mods, including the full yosh pipe and all the TT recommended stuff, not the hot cams or base gasket. The last mod was the MCCT ironically :D

sold for $3900.00 bank balance was $3918.00

a good deal for both buyer and seller IMHO

Dusty if you're out there You are gonna love this BIKE!! :):p:)

I was reading on valve adjusments on the new huskies and I must say they have some great ideas. I really want to know how well your bike holds up. You will test it good if you ride it like you did the drz! Good luck and let me know if you decide to let the wolf play in so cal! :)

If the DRZ crew does not mind I will check in once in a blue moon and update on the reliabilty of my husky. I can tell you this I am a lot more hands on now then ever before. I enjoy wrenching more now then last year. I am trying to become more of a complete motorcyclist. ..example the husky has these little oil screens its fun to take those out and clean them, etc.

I will be riding it often, we'll see in six months and a year how it compares with the king of reliability the DRZ.

One note ,according to my husky guys, the bike comes well greased from the factory, No need to grease the steering stem. The bike has grease fittings at the shock swing mount pivots too. To be fair apparently the 05 plastic is brittle and known to explode :).......... oh well no bike is perfect. new plastic is in the pipeline.

Enjoy that nice bike... I brought my first Husky in 1983 (WR250) rode it till I got a new 87 wr250.. Old world tech at the time but rode the hell out of it.. Back in 1988 at the Delaware National Enduro, Team Husky was there.. They dominated the National and Internation Enduros back then... Terry Cunningham, Dick Burleson and Mike Melton were all there. I got to ride Melton's bike around alittle, it was trick for being "old world" back then...

430 Auto..... That was back when enduros were enduros and you hurt for days after the run.....

      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 ?
