Upper Triple Clamp Question

Recommended Posts

I'm wanting to change out my stock triple handlebar clamp (2002 DRZ 400 S) for something like the Zeta triple (or anything similar). I have purchased a certain aftermarket headlight which requires crap-canning the stock headlight mounting frame which won't work with the existing headlight . The particular headlight is the one for the Drz by Britannia Composites. Web address is : http://www.britanniacomposites.com/lynx.html)

The headlight/fairing mounts into the same hole on the stock triple that the speedo bracket does. My question is whether the ZETA triple or any other aftermarket trriples have the same mounting holes brazed onto the front facing portion of the triple. If they do not have these mounting holes, would it be difficult to braze one's on?

Thank you. I checked out the BRP Site. I'm close to buying one over the ZETA. The black looks real nice. Upon ordering one, there are some selections they ask. One is what bar mount height . Choices are 31.5", 34.5" and 41.7".

They refer to 34.5" as stock. Which one did you go with and why?

Also, what bar position RTS did you select and why? This stuff is a little confusing to me. I wondered what your preferance was. I prefer to ride 80 percent off road and am looking at the Pro Taper EVO 1.1/8th as a bar.

I went with the BRP because of the mounting holes and big plus was the black anodize finish. First rate product. I chose the stock height for the clamps and the smaller (or closer to stock) RTS bar position. I am 5'10". Also went with the EVO bar. Feels great. Looks great....

      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?

      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!

      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 ?
