Your tire hits it that high?

You could mount it under the tail as long as it's not obstructed by anything? (screw plate mounting screws straight into the mud guard). Here in MD and most places in the 'States as long as its clearly visible and has a light on it at night it's good. Only problem then is it will get hit with a lot of debris while off roading.

You can buy little remote plate lights from places like THIS

My plate is close to where yours is and it's no where near the tire's travel even if I did have knobbies on. Are you sure it's mounted securely and not bending down closer to the wheel when you land real hard? I used to have that problem with my old plate mount.

Is your suspension set TOO soft? If you are just dropping off a vertical like the one in the picture, I wouldn't think you could get your plate to touch the tire. I maybe wrong but it might be your suspension setting needs to be a little stiffer. :thumbsup::ride:

maybe fol the tag up at more of an angle, on my street bikes they are angled pretty good to help with the stretched wheelbase

      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 ?
