Turn Key and Nothing

Recommended Posts


I just had my bike running, and then went to put my tail light and signal light back on. It's a 08 SM, anyways while I was checking the signal lights, I had left the key on, looked down and taillight wires were touching each other. I turned the key in the off position, and finished putting the lights on. I then finish, and try to start the bike and theres nothing when i turn the key to the one position. Is there a fuse somewhere that I have blown?

Noticed the ignition wires on my sm can be very finicky after a hard hit (landed face first off the steep side of a sand dune yesterday) ever since the ignition is very finicky.

just a thought those fuse sounds more likely

      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 ?

      My bike was stolen, so I'm liquidating my spare parts. 
      I took this off my S and replaced it with an SM unit so my speed would be more accurate with the street wheel setup.  I no longer need this spare.  I greased it regularly and it was in good working order when I removed it.  Included is only what is pictured.  Cable not included.
