Does the "Free Power Mod" also work for the LiFepo batteries or should I leave everything like it is??:banana:

The free power mod provides more voltage from the charging system at the battery and is good for all battery chemistry types currently available as a replacement battery.

no offense , but I´d like to hear about this from people like BrianK or somebody from turntech if you don´t mind.:banana:

Don't bother me none. But if it can't handle 14.4v like you may get after doing the free power mod I wouldn't go anywhere near one of those batteries.

I assume that the free power mod is the DC conversion. IF so no problem.

The LFP batteries can go to 16.5V with out hurting them. You can push them to 20V and only hurt them a little. The regulator controls the amount of current to the battery.

a lot of KTM's are running upgraded and DC conversions with the battery. Some new husabergs as well (they have 200W stators).

The free power mod is just an increase in wire gauge and the bypass of a connector that increases the voltage the battery sees from the charging system, usually from around 13.5v-13.6v to about 14.3v-14.4v.

Thats what I wanted to hear...thanks :lol::banana:

Free Power does not "change" anything. It just keeps the system working to its original intent. Regulator voltage sense in internal so when the wires and connections degrade, the battery gets less voltage then the regulator thinks. Free Power just brings the system back to original spec.

All DRZ400's are all DC (even the kick only model). None of this half AC half DC stuff you see on some other motorcycles.

      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 ?
