$3,900.00 DRZ In Canada

Just to let you know you can buy a DRZ 400 in Nelson, BC for $3,900.00. Great deal.

NO SH*T, how long does it take drive there from Colorado? :)

you have got to be kidding..?

i just paid 6,700 + tax and all comes to 8,200 cdn.. :)

that does include kenda trackmasters, but there cheap..


all the shops around here wanted the same price for the 01 model, if you could find one..

HUDMAN,$3900.00 in BC OUT THE DOOR?PLEASE tell me the name of the dealer and the phone number!! Thanks in Advance,Kenny :):D

Not out the door but you do have to pay a tax that you will get back once you get to the states. It's for a 2001 E. The 02's sell for $4,600.00 They are in Nelson BC. I might be getting a 02 if they don't have any 01's left. They are checking. Anyway Canada is the way to go. Bikes are so cheap up there. The dealers buy them cheaper puls the weak dollar and your set. By the way Nelson is about 3 hours from Spokane, WA. Let me know if anyone is really interested and we can see if we can get a bulk type deal? May save even more money.... Nice :)

Sounds Great! Don't they hit ya when you bring it back into the states? Sounds to good to be true! I also wonder if a local dealer would honor the 6 month warrenty? But hey these things are bullet proof right! :)

Just a reminder. The seriel numbers are different and you may encounter big problems if you try to liscence it for street use in the U S A. I got this info from the guy who imports them as a business so it is probably accurate. Each state is different though and so is their sales tax setup. In Arizona they nail you for state & county sales tax when you go for the title. The city may bill you a year or two later as I just found out on a truck I bought thru a out of state dealer two years ago.........Victor

Living in Detroit...5 miles from Ontario, I seriously considered buying a Canadian model. Michigan is about the easiest state in the USA to make a bike legal..only drawback was that the $500 electronic odo of the S model from Canada is kilometers only. The US model has a little button on the lower right hand corner to switch back and forth, mi/km. If I would have known about Thumpertalk where I would have a good chance to sell the kilometer odo, I would have probably bought the canadian model.

I am willing to bet that if you take it apart there will be some way to switch it, i can't see them doing more then changing the outside plastic and not the whole thing.. i will take mine apart and look :) cause i like doing stuff like that.. but first i will see when i turn on the key if an mp/h even shows on the display..

Sorry about the last non reply, I'm a new guy. I'm in B.C. and also in the market for a DRZE. Dealer cost on the 2001's is $6100 after the rebates they have on them right now. That plus anywhere from $250 to $450 for frieght and PDI depending on dealer you go to. Take that price and add 14% sales tax. I'm not sure what the dollar is at right now, but at a factor of 1.5 it come in at around 4800.00US if you can find a dealer that is willing to give them away.

In '98 there was a lot of guys coming up from the USA to buy the YZF400. I think that was more to do with the fact that they where hard to come buy, not that it was a sreaming deal. I know the dealers around here where getting retail for all of them.

Hope this helps.

Great deal? What an understatement. What's that... about Sixty bucks $US??


The U.S. dollar is at 1.54 right now. On a bike in Canada that they want (are asking) $6,000.00 for you can get it for $3,995.00. And that's without dealing on freight and setup which is easy to do. As for the tax you pay in Canada you get that back when you come back into the states. You fill out a form and send it in and get your money. It only takes a week or so. That's just the plain numbers. Do the math. It's a good deal.

hello, this is my first post on the forum. i have been lurking around for a while, but i thought i would chime in. i just picked up my 01 drz400e for 4350.00 out the door(out of state-no tax) from martin motorsports in paducah kentucky. they had it listed on cycletrader.com for 4350.00 and i called him and said that included everthing for an out of state buyer, no freight, setup, or any charges of any kind. i am probably going to dual-sport it, and if i do i will have to pay sales tax to get my tags and title. there are great deals out there, you just have to look for them. jerry martin, the owner, was great to deal with. he doesn't have any more drz's, but check with him for your other suzuki needs. i highly reccomend him. martin motorsports can be reached at 270-443-0088.

      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!
