Looking For Smaller Tank

Recommended Posts

Stock is 2.6. You might want the plastic instead of the metal, but

I dont think your going to find smaller then 2.6?

Did you buy it used with a bigger tank?

Maybe someone with a stock plastic will trade you...?

Yes the 2.6 WILL fit an S, it just takes a small bit of reconfiguring to bolt up. They tell you that because they know not everyone has TT for tech assistance :) and some guy will end up killing himself with some crazy half baked attempt at mounting...so they have to protect themselves...

Do a search here on TT because it has been talked about for the last 4 years now and there is a ton of info and pics. I have one on my 02 S, and from what I can remember, you relocate the horn and use the horn mount for the right front mount point...then you need an E tank bracket for the left side, and the rear can be held down by a rubber strap or zip-ty...I used an E tank rubber strap and modified the hook on one end to work on the S frame. Look at my avitar or the link below for a larger pic... the top photo is my 02 S setup with the stock tank...middle pic is a 3.2 IMS(dry break w/ trail adapter) tank on the same bike...bottom pic is a Yosh Factory Rider aluminum 2.6 (same dimensions as the plastic one) everything else is the same except for the tanks...I thought this might help some of those who are in the decision process...Good luck... :) AndrewDRZSeatTankCompare.jpg

When I got my dry break tank, it had the vent nipple hole already drilled...I sealed it up with RTV while I was installing the trail adapter. Then I drilled the non vented cap and life's been great ever since...

Rockchucker...

Thanks for asking...I've been working mostly...Bad guys abound...the only interaction I've had with my bike in 4 months is to push it into the garage of my new (new to me) house...I've also been busy moving...it sure felt good to be near enough to tell what color it is again! I tried to start it, but got a whiff of something burning and the connection to, or the CDI was having an electrical issue and I still have not had the time to see if my Yosh CDI is toast or not. Off-season gremlins I guess! I have not installed the ceramic coated head yet due to schedule for one and I'm waiting on my ceramic coated piston to arrive. For once it's not so bad to wait on a part as I'm no where near having time to install/ride it! More to come on the ceramic report once I do get it on though! :) Andrew

      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 ?
