I have joined the DRZ family

Picked this up today.

2003 DRZ 400S with a mere 2600 miles. Came with the handguards, Big Gun EvoX pipe, IMS tank, and Renthals (I think).

I paid $2750 and all in all I'm pretty pleased with the deal.






Welcome to the "Mad House" Bike looks good as well :applause:

So let the fun (spending) begin :naughty:

Neil. :lol: :lol: :eek:

Nice Bike,welcome Aboard

Good deal! Welcome to TT!

Nice bike & welcome to the club!

looks good!

Good deal! Welcome to the club :applause:

Hey welcome and enjoy your new ride

Looks like you got a good deal. :applause:

I just (today) sent the seller an email inquiring about the bike. Oh well. ENJOY!

Guess I keep shopping now...

congrats, drz's are a blast!!

Sounds like an awsome deal, congrats and welcome.


You got a very nice deal on that bike! Congrats!

You also got a good skid plate on there. Before there's any chance the bike will hit the ground, you'll want to put case guards on the crankcase and look into the MCCT. Just do a search on those terms to find out more.

You'll also want to become familiar with the primary nut fix and an annoying tendency with the countershaft sprocket nut.

After that, your DRZ will be bullet proof.

Congrats! and welcome to the party! you'll love it! (your wallet wont!)

Anyone no what skidplate that is?

I just brought home a new to me DRZ 400E. Almost same price as yours, probably more miles, more extra stuff such as new fenders, headlight/taillight kits, new extra knobbies, rejet, taller seat.

I am reading with great interest the nut fix and the problems with lubing the rear. Thanks to all who contribute here for helping a DRZ n00b get a headstart--even with simple things like oil changes. (The bike came without an owner's manual).

Congratulations on an already road legal DRZ. Mine, I will keep offroad for a few years.

I'm not sure what the skid plate is. I know I have the stock one too and that looks pathetic. I will be mostly on road with this but I plan on going off road too a very little bit.

I noticed that the passenger pegs are gone, and that the kickstand interlock is disabled. I will have to see what else is changed but I think that is it.

Also found that it has the 3x3 mod on the airbox. I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it probably has the primary nut done as well.

      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
