DR350/DRZ400 oil filters

Does anyone know if the DR350/DRZ400 oil filters are the same part? I have a filter left over from my old 350 and would like to use it if I can. The filter I have is Suzuki Genuine Part # 16510-38240


I just brought home a filter the other day, and the part # on the one they gave me was 16510-29F00

Not a chance.the DRZ's is smaller in diameter.

The DRZ400E oil filter seems to be a new animal. I looked for some cross reference like ATV and street bikes and came up empty handed. The DR350 filter is pretty common and can be bought from lots of sources really cheap. Same goes for the Honda Xr400 and many street bike and atv filters.

Sooo guess we have to keep on friendly relations with the local parts counter or buy a batch from one of the mail order discounters.

Thanks for the replies. Looks like I'm off to the dealer.

Thanks again.

It's either the DR100 or 125 that has the almost exact same oil filter.It's about an 1/8 inch shorter and Jesse from Kientech says he machined a spacer so it fits the 400.I know they are a lot cheaper than the DRZ filters.

Reminder - The stainless steel unit is expensive at $65, but if you are going to be on the DR-Z for more than 13 or so oil changes, you will be saving money in the long run. The word on the SS unit is that it has smaller-than-paper-element pore sizes. Presumably, if the ads are right, it will block more junk, but no one has tested this to be sure. The SS unit is available from Thumper Racing - http://www.thumper-racing.net/cgi-bin/ez-catalog/cat_display.cgi?90X362143

I assume then that the DRZ is using a stock paper filter like the DR? My YZ takes the screen filters stock. I have two that I back flush, and rotate around every three hours of ride time. Consequently, I havn't bought a new filter in over a year. It's not looking like a $24 investment in filters is going to go quite as far with the DRZ. Is Scott that manufacturer of the SS filter?

No, it's not Scott - someone else - I forgot the name of the company. The quality of the unit is good; I just can't attest to the claim that it actually does a better job at filtering oil. In any case, even if it isn't much better, I figure in the long run I'll save money on the deal.

I bought some paper filters from Chaparral (you can find their ad in any dirt bike magazine) for $2.99 each. HIFLOFILTRO brand, part# HF139. Chapparal part# 314-0140. It is best to order a bunch of them at a time or with something else so the shipping doesn't get you.

Thanks for the info.

      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!

      Currently have a 2000 drz400s work stock suspension. From my understanding this is the worst suspension the drz ever came with without even rebound damping adjustment. Therefore I'm looking for a upgrade. I'm seeing three approaches to take. First being a newer year s model suspension with dampening adjustment. A SM model USD forks and triple tree or some USD forks and triple tree from a rmz. So if you were going to upgrade what direction would you go. I currently ride off-road mostly but I do have some 17s for on road with as well so have to keep that in mind. Thanks
