Depends what you are going for.

The e-cams are more agressive than the s/sm cams.

Hotcams are a bit more agressive then the e cams.

If you're not going to upgrade the carb and exhausts ,e-cams will be fine , but I don't think it's worth it without proper fuelling

Not really worth the work of changing the base gasket unless fitting a Big bore kit or pulling motor apart for some other work. Get some 'E' cams or hot cams and 'E' header pipe or full exhaust. The slip on is not doing anything for power increase.

I'm running the E cams intake and exhaust with FCR and full MRD pipe. I think it's a great upgrade for the cost...quick install (hour or so) and you can get a set for about $100 used. 99% chance it probably won't require reshimming/adjustment if it's already in adjustment with the stock cams. Worthwhile in my opinion...if you ride mostly dirt and want low end, just install the intake only.

      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 ?
