Is it a Honda or Suzuki wheel?

My bike was put together from spare parts by the previous owner and sold to a unsuspecting newb - me. I have now replaced or repaired EVERYTHING except the forks and triple clamps. They a 45mm shivers. I want to switch to RM forks and clamps. I was wondering how I can tell if my sm wheel and brake will even fit on Suzuki forks. It would not surprise me if the wheel was made to fit on Honda forks. Pics are here:

I am sure someone knows this off the top of their head.

With an aftermarket hub it's much harder to tell by looks alone. I suggest you take some measurements. I just happen to have a set of loose factory hubs I can compare measurements to.

Are there any markings on the hub that you could contact the manufacturer and determine what the hub was made for?

You need to concern yourself with the width of the hub plus spacers to see if it matches the drz wheel, and the alignment of the brake rotor to the caliper. If the wheel isn't a suzuki, or possibly a ktm, I think your pretty much SOL for getting it to fit, unless it's just a matter of spacers and you can machine them yourself, if you want it to fit stock drz triples and forks.

talon hubs are stamped with a part no..

their website will list p/n's for the drz.

tw44 comes to mind for a rear hub - not certain tho.

      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.
