service manual

Recommended Posts

Dude, you are looking at it the wrong way.

I paid the same for my service manual $55.00+S/H (E-BAY).

You will pay for the book with your first valve adj. In fact, any job you do from here on out, will pay for the book.

IMO $55.00 is not that much for all the info and savings you'll get.

Be positive :) , and rock on!!!!

I keep telling people that the KLX400R manual is the way to go. :)

It has the Kicker model, E model and Australian E model all in one book.

The AU E model has the S models wiring, lights and spedo!

So basically you get a manual for all 3 bikes for like $35 new from Kawasaki. Or you can get one on eBay like new for $10 like I did.

Is there any way any of you could SCAN the 7 pages that refer to disassembly of the front forks on the 02-05 models???

I would REALLY appreciate it.... I have a 2000 Manual that has different forks.. :)

Ya coulda bought the same manual from www.ronayers.com for $45 + shipping. And, I agree with the other guy about the manual being one of the most valuable "mods" / tools you can acquire. As to scanning copies and posting here I believe that to be a violation of copyright law and shouldn't even be brought up in this forum. No whiners... :)

      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 ?
