What is the length of 400S front springs?

Recommended Posts

What is the length of the front springs for a 2003 400S? Trying to get someone to ship me springs quick and they are unsure of the length.

574 or 511 ??

Thanks.

Just so it gets logged, for future users- 2003 DRZ400S.

I removed one spring tonight when I got home from work. The front spring is 20 1/8" = 20.125 = 511mm.

I just removed the left side. If you have never done it, it is fairly easy to remove the front springs.

Support the bike with the front wheel off the ground. Motorcycle center lift seems best.

1. Loosen top upper clamp bolts. Allows loosening of the top cap.

2. Loosen the top cap. Don't try to remove it all the way yet.

3. Loosen the lower clamp bolts. You didn't loosen these yet because it held the tube so the top cap could be loosened.

4. Slide the tube down as you loosen the top cap the rest of the way.

5. Now slide the tube down some more, so a few inches of spring are exposed.

6. Lower the motorcycle lift so weight comes onto the wheel. The spring will get pushed up so that it sticks out of the triple tree. You can now see the nut on the rod under the cap.

7. Tie a string around the rod so it will not drop out of site once cap is removed.

8. 17mm wrench on nut and cap. Remove cap.

9. Remove whimpy spring that can only support girly men.
