Rock Screen for '01 E-Model Headlight

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a source for a protective headlight screen for the '01 E Model? I'm more interested in the wire screen type than the clear plastic type, but either will do.

I've seen what you're looking for, but the guy made it himself. Guy bought a steel "grid" wire rock screen for a square KC off-road light and bought four mounting tabs from some electrical supply store that slipped over each corner of the light and had an eyelet where the screw goes. He then screwed all four tabs into the headlight and ended up with a nice looking rock guard.

Hey bud! Try fabricating your own out of something like heavy guage 1/2" square wire mesh. Home Depot or any ag feed/supply store should have the stuff. Now that you brought it up, sounds like a good idea and it would be very easy to do.

FWIW, I tried making an acrylic cover for mine and it didn't work out too well. I had the acrylic cut and stuck it on with four small pieces of velcro. The thing fell off way too easily during small get-offs and the velcro stopped working after getting dirty and wet. I guess what I'm saying is that wire mesh is the way to go!

BBaluminium makes one, not sure if it fits the 01E though.

Price in Aussie dollars $42.00

Sure is nice to hear from ya Eric, welcome back I think I'll make that my next project myself. Ran into a really nice guy from Denver who is a electrician who had a broken headlight, well crack clean across. With the way my buddies throw roost it sounds like a great idea.PS Steve from Denver anytime after hunting season you want to ride just let Shu or me know.

You could also check out the StonGard Headlight Shield at http://www.aerostich.com It's not as aggressive looking as a cage but it works and does not interfere with light output. A medium sheet covered my KLR and DRZ lights as well as lights on 2 XR's and a DR belonging to friends. None of us have had cracked lights in two years of use.

      Hey all, 
      I'm looking at buying a 2004 Suzuki DRZ400EK or at least I think it's an EK according to Vin lookup websites, but it does not appear to have a kickstarter. I was told the bike was owned by a motorcycle dealer and that it has a current green sticker, and a California license plate but has not been registered for the streets since 2011. I want this as a dual sport but am not clear if the fact that it already has a plate means I am good to register it or if maybe they took away the ability to register it after it was plated, California loves to do that kind of stuff. Since the bike was owned by a dealer I would think they were up on the latest regulations in California, but who knows. Can anyone add any insight as to what I should look for on the bike itself like the carburetor, model numbers etc? Or do I just try my luck at the DMV?

      Hi,
      I have a 2003 DRZ (actually a KLX400) and the head tube bearings are shot.  I ordered a new set to install but I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations on other parts I should replace while I have the front disassembled.  I was thinking about new rubber fork protectors, but are there other things that wear out on the DRZ front ends that you can only get to when disassambled?
      I also broke off a replacement key that I got for the steering lock.  I must have been made of cheap pot-metal.  Should I just remove the whole lock mechanism?
      Any tips or tricks for getting the old bearings out and the new ones in would be welcome!
      Thanks!

      Hey Guys,
      I recently bought a 2003 DRZ400S and thought it would be a good idea to check the valves clearance etc . I timed the engine on TDC with the magneto mark aligned as per the manual but I find the cam timing slightly odd. The arrows pointing upward are on the 1st and 15th pin as they should but with the magneto timing mark aligned they are not perfectly straight. Same goes for the arrows that should be parallel to the cylinder head casing. Is this normal or should they be absolutely perfect ?
