I really had alot of fun this weekend and saw some lovely places. Most of the time I ride alone so I really depend on the Z to get me home :thumbsup: I can also say that buying a Clarke tank was one of the best things I could have done to the DRZ, knowing I will always have enough fuel to explore is a confidence booster. I'm waiting for my Dirt Bagz to arrive and after that a softer seat, can you ask for a better package ?

Every weekend I look at the map and find new dirt to ride :thumbsup: I'm starting to go on longer rides hence the need for some Dirt Bagz and a softer seat. There are some some technical stuff as well but I'd only ride those places in a group, but as for dirt roads, yeah there are plenty !

As usual - awesome pics. Makes me wish I could take a trip to the other side of the world. By the way Dan, I recently purchased the Corbin Seat for the same reasons you're looking for a softer seat. It's shaped kind of weird, and takes a little getting used to. But once you've gotten used to it, it's way better than the stock Suzuki seat, and way better than the Suzuki gel seat (I've had both). Totally agree with your comments on the Clarke 3.9 too.

Nice pic's Dan, but if my bike was as pretty as your's, I'd only ride it in the driveway for fear of getting it dirty! :bonk::thumbsup::bonk:

I felt that way too but then as we all know ds riding is the best past time in the world so I decided to get with it and get dirty. I ditched the Pirelli Scorpions and fancy Renthal alu sprocket which the mud destroyed and slowly but surely my DRZ is becoming more dirt worthy :thumbsup:

More pics from the same ride ->

Really great pics, Dan. Thanks for sharing!

But I don't understand why your bike looks so "pretty" and mine looks like it's been through a war!

But Harry, I thought yours had been through a war, a war involving your toolbox :eek:

But if it makes you feel any better, mine is looking a bit sorry for it's self at the moment as well.

Since my little off, the battery has been indoors, on charge, and I am building a collection of parts that need to be fitted.

New rear shock, new front fork spring, hand guard extensions, and now I am trying to get a set of rings, head and base gaskets and an FCR.

And the worst part is I am still to stiff to even re-fit the battery, never mind do the rest of the work.:bonk::bonk:

Neil. :thumbsup::thumbsup::bonk:

      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 ?
