Recommended Posts

Well my drz ownership has come to an abrupt end!!

Some thieving scum has stolen my bike last night, i'm well f*cked off!!!

Im mostly annoyed about the £400 worth of parts i've bought for the bike in the last month, which i wont get back on the insurance :smirk::smirk:

im in sheffield, it was on my drive with ground anchor and chain, padlock bust open. Tbh i dont really want the bike back now some pricks had their filthy hands on it but it looks like a couple of months b4 insurance will do anything. Im really gutted i have nothing to ride. Im really fighting the urge to go to the husky dealers with my credit card. Think i might just get my missis to hide my cards....

Absolutely gutted for you.

Been watching your Mods and the pride you have is obvious.

Hope there's a positive outcome.

it only had 1200 miles on it, it was like brand new, not to mention tail tidy, filter, zeta levers, evo fender, dynojet, and i also have a very expensive amr graphics kit which luckily i hadnt fitted yet which id only just bought this month. If i do get it back ill only strip the good bits and sell the bike.

I have some surplus bits on fleabay if anyones interested... Im going to

start saving for another bike.....

Sweet! Ride report please.

i love it! Its powerful, solid and a pleasure to ride. I'm not sure i prefer it to the drz yet but it's early day's and i think when I've had more ride time ill be throwing round like my last bike. Engine noise is good. Really thumpy. It had a ducati 916 end can's on when i got it but i didn't like the fit so I've put the originals back on.

The exhaust is certainly an aquired taste and i think i may invest in a single can in the future

well let's hope this one don't get stolen :-(

there is money to be made ....

in the design of a theft proof locking system , no deterrants .

You can buy a remote GPS device. Sit in front of your computer and track where and when it moves.

      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 ?
