SIDI Offroad Boots

I am very interested in purchasing a pair of SIDI Raptor or SIDI Discovery Boots. However, before I buy I want to try a pair on. I have tried to go to SIDI websites with no luck in finding local dealers in Northern Georgia. :naughty::D

Can anyone help me find a dealer in my area?

Thanks in advance.


I recently moved this thread from the general forum due to the lack of responses. I'll try again in the DR-Z 400 FORUM :naughty::naughty:

I have SIDI Flex Force boots and I am very happy with them. Good luck on the hunt.

I want to also try some sidis they look good..... it will be hard to beat tech 8's.

I have the SIDI Discovery Boots, and they are a great dual purpose boot. I had a difficult time finding SIDI dealers that had any stock around Nashville.

Try this site to locate a SIDI dealer:

Good Luck

Flex Force SRS.... simply the best!

I have had Sidi and Alpinestar motocross. I also have a pair of Sidi road boots, and they feel like a running shoe. For me I can say that Sidi is a better fit. I wear a 10, but have big calves on top of long thin shin bones, and small ankles. The Sids give me all the support and I can still move my ankles to work the controls. :naughty:

The new Vector or Tech 10's by Alps. resemble what Sidi has been doing for a while. As everyone said, they are hard to find. They are so damn expensive, no showroom can afford to stock up on 'em. Just go try on a pair of Tech 8's. If you dont like the fit, you will love the Sidi's. :naughty:

I had a pair of sidi flexforce. There is no boot out there that offers better ankle support. I really liked the feel of them, but the plastic on the tops would dig into my calves. This started to bother me on long rides. I adjusted the plates out to there widest settings which did not help any. I have since sold them and purchased a set of tech 8's which I am totally happy with. On a side note, I don't ever remember getting wet feet with the sidi's. I would definately recommend trying them on before buying.

Sidi Raptors here, I like the fit but would spend the money for better ankle support next time by buying the "force" boot. I also don't like the plastic cam locks they use on the buckles. If you don't get things lined up just right you can tweak the little tabs out of whack. The Raptor is probably a better dual sport boot than a dedicated off road boot.

      So I am going to put in an in-line fuel filter just for added protection from stuff in my gas .... and I have always used bronze element cone ones you no what I’m talking about the ones everyone seems to use but upon reading online supposedly that bronze element breaks down and doesn’t catch everything .... I have came across a moose fuel filter that has a fine nylon mesh just like what’s on the petcock filter ... any opinions on which is better ? Bronze element or mesh ?

      I'd like to turn my UK 2004 DRZ400S back to stock airbox (snorkel) and jets, needle shim position etc
      When I bought it the PO had fitted a Sigma6 kit and done the 3x3 mod but is doesn't have a tapered needle like the JD and other kits. Took me ages to get it running right, however it still runs rich and I'm fed up of arsing around with it. 
      So I've bought a standard airbox without 3x3 hole, stock exhaust.
      Q1 The Suzuki manual says this Mukuni BSR36 (29FA) carb should have a 142.5 Main Jet but the Clymer manual say its a 135.  In UK everything's from sea level to 1000m. I'm in Sheffield so nothing gets above 500m even in the Peaks (Hills). Any UK owners or anyone else know what the correct jet should be?
      Q2 Says the original needle is a '5DH36-2nd'. The needle has 5 notches on it. Currently set at 2 clip from bottom. The Suzuki reference says needle is 5DH36-2nd, Does the 2nd bit mean 2nd from top or bottom?
      Q3 - Does anyone have a detailed photo of the shim order just in case it was assembled wrong. (mine is attached)
      I know most people on here are going to be horrified I'm taking back to stock but any help on above would be really appreciated.

      I've read a lot of threads about this but still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for.  I'm pulling my 2004 DRZ400S out of storage sometime this week and getting it ready for the season.  I live at 9,000 ft, but my first ride of the year is probably going to be at around 5,000 ft.  I was going to pull the 145 main jet I'm running and put in the 150 adjusting the needle from the 2 clip to the 3rd, then re-jet once I got home.  I already have the extended fuel mixture screw in place so I started thinking that I should just run the 150 jet set up and adjust the fuel screw to compensate for the higher elevation where I'll be doing most of my riding.  I will be going down in elevation for rides until late May or June depending on snowfall, but riding on the street when I'm able.  Are there any disadvantages with this?
      I'm new to posting on this forum, so please forgive me if I didn't get the right search words in and there is already a post about this.

      Good Morning,
        Last night I measured my valve clearances for the very first time (I know...) on my DRZ400S.  It's a 2002 and I've owned is since 2011.  I bought it with t's got about 15,000 miles on it and most of it's miles these days are on dirt.
      Intake specs are 0.10-0.20 mm.  Exhaust specs are 0.20-0.30
      My intake valve clearances are in spec, forgot to write them down.  My exhaust valve clearances are between 0.1778 and 0.2032 which is slightly out of spec.  They are no more than 25 microns out of spec.  My question is, do I really need to shim these?  Will this kind of out-of-spec cause performance, mechanical, or other losses?  As far as I can tell, I'd have to buy a whole shim kit which is like $80.  Thanks!
