DRZ400sm Non CA Gas Cap Needed

Recommended Posts

Well I just bought all the OEM plastics and gas tank to change my yellow 06 DRZ400sm to Black. The only problem is that the gas tank I bought did not come with a gas cap and the gas cap on my yellow CA tank does not fit the non Ca gas tank I just bought :lame: Does anybody know where I can get a non Ca gas cap for a DRZ400sm ???

Ebay....classifieds here on TT....or probably directly from any Suzuki dealer(Ron Ayers, etc.) You need to make sure that the internals(locking mechanism, etc.) are interchangable(CA and NOn-CA), so you can pull the lock out of your old cap and swap them. That way you won't have to carry two keys, one for the ignition and one for the tank.

I will call the local dealer tomorrow to see how much it will cost to get a non CA cap OEM. I dont mind having 2 keys if needed, but I would rather not have to buy yet another tank as I already have 2.

Where'd you find the plastics? I'm trying to find a non-ca tank. Dunno if it really matters though.

I got the complete set of OEM plastics and the gas tank from a guy on E-bay except the gas cap of course. I will be selling my complete Yellow sm plastics, tank and seat as soon as I get this gas cap issue resolved. It appears that I may have found another TT member that needs a CA gas cap and is willing to trade me for his non CA gas cap.

:thumbsup: Well, I need a gas cap for a 49-state S model now too. :worthy:

Anybody got one? I don't care about the key.

      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 ?
