drz400e/klx400r maintance

Recommended Posts

My dad is looking at getting a drz400e/klx400r. We were wondering, how often do the valves need checked. Do they ever have any problems. He rides a drz250 right now. We have never had any problems with valves. They've never been checked and the bike probably runs better now than when it was new. Do the 400's need checked or will it be the same? He just wants a little more power and similiar maintenance. Thats the reason we are looking at the 400, not a 450. Thanks in advance.

The DRZs need very little maintenance compared to a motocross bike, but the performance is also very little in comparison. On the SM model they recomend checking the valves at 14,500 miles or 4 years. Whichever comes first. On the dirt model it is probobly a bit sooner, but very rare compared to a 450.
