Can't ride without a beverage!

bought a drz400e about 3 weeks ago love the bike very easy to ride. i had an cr250 way to difficult always made me spill my beer!

i get sick of going back the truck so right now i'm using a camelbak but it makes my beverage taste funny?

looking for a way to mount a small cooler on the back of the new drz-e big enough to hold 6 cans any solutions would be greatly apprecated.

thank in advance

drink water, bring a backpack.

.............. :):D

You sound like my riding buddy. He always has to come back to the truck for a beer. Now he has 9 pins in his leg with a steel cage around it. Drink up and wave as I pass you by.

ask your insurance company rep :)

My suggestion, forget about the beer while you are riding, :) and if you can't, then maybe you should start thinking about your drinking!

Maybe you should switch to weed its lighter

doesnt foam up and you wont litter up the trails.


dizzy, that is great idea but my job requires i "pee in a cup" randomly every few months so my need for "can storage" continues!

I would also like to thank everyone for your concern but this why i purchased the drze - smooth accelaration, soft suspension, (light up front in case i get lost) and ofcourse! the e botton! This is the best offroad bike ever manufactured!!!

pot will NOT show up an 90% of drug tests

it is quite expensive to test for

most drug tests are for coke/crack and opiets

also weed will not bring on loss of motor skills

ppl who drink and ride wurt them selfs. ppl who smoke and ride fall ove lauging

I'm beginning to agree with you. My eyes have started looking at all the new bikes. I just have to ride my DRZ, The magic go button, the soft, smooth riding suspension, the power. Its the best all around bike for me.

I here ya on the 4:20.

yea that's probly true but i can't risk it!


mjlang, you need to focus on your website and leave us life enjoyers alone!

Don't know if it will fit on the back of a DRZ - but around here folks use quads to hold their beer on the trail :)

Yea, but don't forget to wear shorts and put your ball cap on backwards while on your quad.


Scott Summers Racing makes a nice looking rack for the back of DRZs, that with a small playmate cooler and you should be set. Six o'clock in the morning and all this beer talk is making me thirsty. :)

After watching the Cowboys play football, I think you would drink heavily too...... :) .

Flip flops do the trick also, NO boots!


Find yourself a fine female to ride on the back and she can hold onto the beer for you and even hold it so you can drink while you drive!Just make sure she can ride a bike cause someone has to be able to take you to a hospital when you crack your nugget open.

What has happened to this site? Someone got thrown out for nothing and this bozo is allowed to talk about drinking and riding? What the heck!!

      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!
