KLR 650 Seat Mods for a DRZ???

Recommended Posts

I've seen that guys have modified a KLR 650 (2008 or newer) to fit a DRZ 400.

I've got the seat, I see the plastic tab has to be removed to fit into the seat "well" below the tank. I'm installing a IMS 4 gallon tank.

The seat will fit with the rear rack installed.

Anyone taken pics of the bottom of the KLR seatr after being modified for the DRZ?

I had a 2008 KLR, put 17,000 miles on it, the OEM seat is very comfortable. I had an earlier year KLR and that stock seat was horrible.

Sure would like to see what the newer KLR seat looks like after "modification".

You may need to surf the KLR forum, I have never heard of that mod on a DRZ, but I havent seen every post here....yet.

Having owned both (up until yesterday, sold the klr *sniff*) I cant see the KLR seat working all that well. The tab is in the wrong place, the pan isn't the right shape...if it's been done it wasn't easy.

      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 ?
