DRZ 400E lighting

Just bought a 02 E model and notice that the OEM headlight has a 3 wire connector implying it has ground, high and low, but the main harness connector only uses 2 wires and one pin is a blank.

The OEM tail light is a nifty LED unit that would make a great brake light, so only a tail light/license plate holder is all that is needed under the stock fender.

I haven't seen any posts where these parts are incorporated in a street legal lighting package.

Worst case scenario, one would only need a headlight-T/S-horn switch for $56, a tale light-plate holder for $38, 2 pressure switches for $40, a car parts relay for ?$8?, a turn signal flasher for $8?, an econo-horn for $8, 4 Buell turn signals for $32 and some wire and connectors for $10. Total of maybe $200.

I read on one of these forums that the bike puts out 200 watts!!!

Am I missing something? Why is this deal so expensive? Looking forward to vindication or correction.


Right you are. Dual sporting is no big deal if you are will to do a little wiring yourself. See post close below. The LED really is not a brake light but you might get away with it. Go for it. Yes, 200 watts alternator out put. E, S, and SM are all the same

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
