@KATeeples very nice. Looks like an E model. I also got an E not too long ago. Where do you ride? Do you have to work your clutch more on the trails because of your taller gearing?

This is a drz 400 (wanabe E)! The gearing is for the high speed gravel roads and black top in Colorado. Yes it's geared as tall as the engine can pull. I ride right along with the cars until I get to the trails. I have pulled 60 mpg several times also. It runs 50 mph at an idle in 5th gear this way. This last pic shows what I started with 3 months ago. Good luck to all and what a great bunch of bikes we have!

What are your performance mods, and what's your top speed? I suspect with ACT and really tall sprockets, my big bore could cruise 100mph, but I haven't tried.

I thought I'd love 15-47 for colorado, and it was a godsend in the tough stuff, but I was wide open in fifth the whole way down those gravel roads between Groundhog mountain and Dove creek

You bet!  No inspections here; and if someone cuts me off I'm usually too busy avoiding them to find the horn button.

@KATeeples does your bike's frame have a mounting point for the rear brake switch? I had to use a hydraulic switch  on the master cylinder on mine. Now I need to make some sort of a relocation bracket for the brake fluid reservoir. Otherwise, the old frame mounting point is blocked.

That's exactly the roads I run this on. Cortez to ground hog takes one hour and 1 gallon. I'm in Cortez so I have the whole 4 corners to explore.

The downhill from Montecello to Cortez is where I was able to hit 96 mph with the motocross FMF slip on. I had a new chain & sprockets but I was thinking about the O-ring chain temps. the whole time! I did put my hand on the chain after that run and it had no noticeable heat temps. 

I put an FMF Q-4 with the spark arrestor on the power bomb header and I did loose 3-4 mpg. and about 10 mph off the top. I logged 55.5 mpg yesterday doing a 140 mile trip around Hovenweep. Mostly 50-65 mph. Have not been in the right place to see what the top end is now, but I'll get to it! Killing the noise was one of the best mods I've done to it! IMO.

Did the arrestor make a big noise difference? What kind did you use? I see some mixed feedback about them and I found several different types.

The Q-4 comes with the spark arrestor of it's own. That's another reason for the extra $ they get! You can buy a Power Core and buy the arrestor extra, it's about the same money then.

I am in the National Forests and BLM a lot. If a ranger can run a dowel rod up the end and finds no screen or it's straight through it's a nasty fine ($300), they can impound it or make you push it off Federal lands. Never piss the guy off when you know your not covered! :)

wow, good thing I never saw a ranger. Riding the CO/UT TAT was the first time I felt invisible on the DRZ. Cops didnt seem to notice me at all compared to back home.

super jealous of where you live, I don't know how you get things done with all that riding in your backyard

re-chain temps at speed, I'd be more concerned about burning oil. Dipstick was dry as a bone when I checked it in Moab.

Only took a couple pics that day, maybe you'll recognize the spots...

So here is my 07 Drz with 26k kilometers.

It has an fcr 39mm carb, full yoshi rs2 system, stock internals.

A year ago I bought an acerbis plastic kit and a racetech v-face headlight for it and also got a graphics kit from Pimpstar. 

Last summer I put on an SDG tall seat and a jack up kit that raises the rear with 20mm.

I tried to get over the top (Black Mesa) 3 days ago and it's snowmobile only from about 9600 ft. and above.

Next time you get around the 4 corners give a yell. There is a lifetime of exploring here and most of it has good roads.

Ground Hog Lake has monster trout, cabins, store and endless riding!

Took 'er out on my first ADV ride, 475 miles and one overnight campout down to the San Rafael Swell, Utah. Fresh after a Clarke tank install. Rigged up some Thule bike panniers to an old scooter rack my friend had made, hose clamped the rack to the frame under the rear fender. Worked great!--but got a slick Mosko setup on the way for round two.

      Looking for info on an H4 LED bulb replacement. I'm not looking to use the 4x6 headlights many have used. I'll be doing the KLX450 headlight/fairing mod.
      Looks like eBay has a bunch of options, but to use with stock DRZ wiring what wattage/specs am I looking for? Anyone had success/nightmares? 
      Looking at something like this:

      Howdy,
       
      hopefully someone can drop some knowledge on me.
      Please try to follow as im not much of a writer, im probably going to be all over the place....bear with me. 
       
      I installed a custom "FLOWPRO" fcr mx 39 on a drz400sm :"3x3 & full GPR exhaus, no tps connected"
      WOT it runs and pulls perfectly, as expected. 
      1/8th-1/4 its sputtering like crazy or if im just cruising at a constant speed after a second or two it spudders until i crack it open.
      I had the A/f mixture screw and 2-3 turns out and it was sputtering like crazy anywhere from 1/8th throttle to 1/4th or just cruising at a constant speed. So i turned it all the way in and it ran much better, but its still happening, which leads me to believe it is too rich?
      I ran it without the airbox and it ran better that with it on there but not a significant difference.
      It has a new air filter and sparkplug looks good. It was running perfectly this morning with the mikuni on. 
      Jetting spec:
      Idle jet #40
      Main jet #155
      Main air jet #200
      Idle air jet #75
      Choke jet #75
      Needle ELQ 4th clip from top, "was on third but ran much worse, the guy that built it said to drop it one more clip to see if that helps, It did help a good bit but still not perfect"
       
      other than the spudder at 1/8 throttle and having to have the AF all the way in it runs great. WTF. 
       
      I tried to give as much info as possible, let me know if theres anything i missed.

      Hi, 
      working on an 84 PE full floater, which needs a rear shock to really go off road. Looked everywhere and there’s nothing out there. Does anyone know if an RM one will fit? If so what year and model??
      cheers in advance

      Located in Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. 4305.
       
      Up for sale is my 2010 DRZ400E! This is the almighty reliable, can-do-anything, dual sport torquey thumper!
      $3800 (AUD) FIRM.
      It is fairly stock;
      - bark busters
      - exhaust baffle removed
      - 50/50 adventure tyres
      - airbox restrictor removed
      - carby jetting to suit the removed resitrictors
      - tail tidy with KTM style indicators on the rear
      - RMZ style front fender
      - Renthal handlebars
      - Comes with a spare set of Michelin AC10 DOT approved knobbies with heaps of tread
      ** Please note; Quadlock mount is NOT included with the motorbike **
      It comes with the stock fender and tail tidy also should you wish to put them back on
      It has recently been fully serviced by myself.
      - It has brand new oil (less than 100km ago)
      - Brand new oil filter (also comes with another brand new genuine filter for it's next change, it's cheaper when you buy 2 or more)
      - Coolant flushed and new long life oolant put back in
      - Battery was replaced less than 3 months ago
      - Valves have been checked and adjusted to correct spec (have receipt to show this done less than 200km ago)
      The bike has a few marks and blemishes from being a dual sport and having the inevitable fall when off-road. (Pictures show this)
      However overall it is in decent condition and pulls like a freight train with no issues pulling a wheelie in 1-3rd gear (if you dare!)
      The tyres are fantastic for the road and stick like no tomorrow, offroad they perform well in all but deep sand and mud.
      The speedo is very multi-function which is great for trail riding and road usage.
      It has a 10L fuel tank, with normal riding I get about 180KM before needing reserve, which will get you to the 200km mark. So it's pretty good on fuel!
      It starts very easily every time and runs really well.
      Definitely not one to pass by!
      It will come with a RWC once I have a buyer.
      It has rego until 27/03/2018 so plenty of time to ride until it runs out!
      It also has 4x keys in total as the originals are slightly bent, so there are 2 new straight keys as well as the originals (which still work, just didn't want to risk breaking them off)
      I am selling it because as fantastic as it is, I don't get time to take it off roading and really have fun with it. (I have 2 children under 2 years old) so I am looking to get a road bike with 2 seats Instead.
      Would swap for a Yamaha MT-03 or something similar.
      Due to the amount of thefts lately, I will require a deposit of $1000 before a test ride as well as your license, or I am happy to demonstrate the bike working for you.
