Handguards for drz400s

Recommended Posts

I have checked the stickies and googled but I am still unsure.

What type of guards / deflectors do you guys like?

Thanks in advance! :thumbsup:

If you're gunna ride woods, you'd be hard pressed to find a better mount than the cycra triple clamp mounts

i got the 59.95 tusk ones form rockymountainatv and they've been awesome for me, laid the bike down 10 good times at least and they've held up great

I ran acerbis rally pro. Pretty good but anything beyond amateur crashes they will start to get beat. They do the job of protecting bars, levers and knuckles. Mine are bashed and beaten so bad I rebuilt (completely rebent and replaced /removed plastic) them with Cycra parts. Emgo does a really cheap knock off of these.

Cycra are good having 2 styles bar mount (semi pro) and triple mount (pro crasher) good product, good value.

The nastiest ones I've seen, have to be highway dirt bikes. I would say they are overkill for all but the most excellant of professional crashers. They are designed with big bikes in mind so the little DRZ shouldn't be an issue. From the looks of these if you hurt them you won't walk away from it.

it's really your choice :thumbsup:.......but I am running Cycra Probends with the Triple mount:thumbsup:

I'm running the Probends and really like them. They're very well-built and seem as if they'll stand up to a good amount of abuse. I wish that I'd bought the triple clamp mount, but these will be fine for now.

When I do the redo of my bars and such that's the way I'm going. I really like the mirror set up. Plus I am looking to go to bars, risers, and upper clamp. Nice combo, a bit spendy, looks worth it. I am way cheap though. :lol:

It was worth it. I had a set of Zetas on there before these. I had to ride home with a ziptie holding my brake perch in place cause the the handguard flipped up in a minor tipover. They now reside on my kid's bike.

      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 ?
