SM = SUPER MUD!! and a big thanks to Forrest (EDIT now with videos!! post #42)

As many of you know I've been searching for dirt wheels. My limit was $400 for a nice set. I thought maybe I could build a set if I could find a cheap pair of hubs. I have a good rear rim from a previous bike and was searching e-bay when I thought I'd e-mail Forrest about a set of hubs. Well he mails me back a bunch of pics of different sets of wheels and shot me some prices. I wound up getting these for $395 SHIPPED!! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!





And I finally got rid of the stock turn signals. Went with the cheapies but I like em'. Mounted the fronts in the shroud cause that's how I did my old DR.


AND FREEBIES!! WHAT!!! Also got a free set of sprocket bolts! Thanks Santa Forrest! Wheeling rules P E R I O D .



Everybody have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Typical Forrest. Patron saint of motorcycle parts and goodwill.

Now the real fun begins. Enjoy the mud!

Merry Christmas to all.


Lookin good! Now, you just need a nice tinge of tan with a bit of brown and a few shades of green scattered on that yellow for good in dirt, mud, and grass! :busted:

That's the plan Myk! Hopefully over the holiday. We've had some serious rainfall here over the last 2 days. At least it's warming up a bit.:busted:


If you plan to go back to the SM setup anytime soon, ya may want to spring for another skid plate, cause the nice, smooth, high polish finish is gonna go away in a hurry.:busted:

Looks good man.

Forrest/Amy/the whole wheeling crew are the best.

A nice deal,and it looks great....Now cover it in mud.

Looks awesome. I love the look of the SM forks. With dirt wheels or street wheels, these bikes just look better with the gold legs.

Looks good, I just hooked up some S wheels as well. Can you tell me what tires those are and if they are DOT approved?

Welcome to the world of shoving a knobbie in mother earths face!:busted:

so you got the wheels for $395 shipped or wheels and tires? either way the bike looks good :busted:

Dunlop 756 rear and 752 front. Not DOT. I always ran them on my DR. Great woods, MX, Mud tire. They don't do too bad on the street either. I found that street use would actually sharpen the leading edge of the tire instead of round it off like I found other harder compound tires would do. I'm hoping to keep these tires for dirt use and the SM wheels and tires for commuting and country cruises.

so you got the wheels for $395 shipped or wheels and tires? either way the bike looks good :busted:

Thanks!:moon: $395 shipped for the wheels with decent trail wing tires on them. Spent about another $200 for the Dunlops and tubes and rim strips and rim locks.


Good deal, looks nice, go enjoy some wheelies up a grass hill where it's "legal" to ride. :busted:

Them's some tiny blinkers Pauli :busted:

Congrats by the way

Enjoy being able to go where no sm could ever go. nov302008002.jpg

say good-bye to your clean plastics....and you'll love it as you put each and every scratch on!!!!

Update please

How did the bike work out off road with the wheel set up?

Did you find the weight of the SM ok or a bit out of hand?

Thinking of the same thing to take advantage of our trail system without buying a new bike.



I think I'm missing is it possible to get a full set of laced wheels...with tires...all new...for $395 shipped? Are they hot?

Damn...look great, AWESOME price!

and I WISH I could get some SM wheels for that price!!!!!!!!!!!!

      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
