Who wants 300MM front brakes? Post here!

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Im curious to hear why noone makes a middle range sized disc & adapter for the DRZ400.

It makes perfect sense for those of us who swap wheels reguarly between supermoto and dirt.

300MM is perfect since its not too big for offroad, and not too small onroad. If we put the disc on both front wheels, then there is no stuffing around with brackets, and especially with 320MM discs which are a downright bastard to fit the caliper on.

Who would buy 2 x 300MM discs and a caliper bracket if they were available? Maybe we can ramp up enough support for a manufacturer to make these for us Supermoto/dirt riders.

It takes me an extra 2 minutes to get my caliper on my 320 rotor, and I think I would appreciate the extra stopping ooomph I get with 320mm over a 300m enough to not sweat the caliper tango.

Good luck with it tho

      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 ?
