Surprised! My TRC mounted up to stock mounts on my "S"

Recommended Posts

Got my Yosh Ti TRC yesterday...Was quite surprised that when I replaced my RS-3 with my Ti TRC it bolted right up to the stock positions!

Clears the radiator...

Oh...It came with the "potato" installed (Which I removed immediately)...Happy to see my TEC kit fits (Even though I don't use it here in Africa)...

I have to wonder, is the mid pipe fully inserted into the header and tail pipe? If so, you have the only system in the world that mounts to a S/SM in the stock location.

Unless it's a PhotoChop!

How much clearance do you have between the left rad and the header?

Mine was so close I had to move the radiator up.

Oh yeah...It's close as the picture shows...But no closer than my RS-3 was...It doesn't touch the rad.

He he... What in the world would I have to benefit from that :thumbsup: Nope I'm surprised as anyone (Hench my post). I tried to get it installed first using the "alternative" mounting points...It didn't like those...However it went with little struggle once I tried the regular mounting points. As far as the mid pipe being inserted the whole way...It's inserted as far as I could wiggle it (And tap it slightly together more at the end with a rubber mallet)...I've taken the bike out twice now riding...

I did forget to mention one other thing...I did reverse the buddy peg eliminator bracket to move the pipe outward a small amount to clear the shock spring. After doing that I didn't need to shim the rear frame to clear the shock spring as some have done...

My pipe was a return I got new for $545 because someone had returned it cause it had a scratch (I looked all over it when I got it and found nothing you could even call a scratch (Had to be an SM guy...THANKS)...

it mounted,but its not right.

it needs to be done like ive posted.

you also have the flange at the head on backward.the springs should not be stretched the far.

      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 ?
