Looking for a leftover 2009 drz400sm!!!

Recommended Posts

I posted this in another section too but this section is relevant and I am DESPERATE to find this bike by tomorrow.

I am looking for a NEW leftover 2009 drz400sm...

I just found out that Suzuki is offering $1000 off the model until TOMORROW and I need to find one from a DEALER.

The reason I need it from a dealer is that I have been approved for financing through a local dealer but I have been having a very rough time getting a loan anywhere else. If I can find one at a dealer, they can do a dealer transfer.

SO... Does anyone know of one anywhere in the US??

Or does anyone know how I should go about finding one by tomorrow?

Thanks in advance for replies... I have been pretty bummed that they don't offer this model anymore and I was about to settle for a 400s until I JUST saw the $1000 coupon.

I have wanted this bike for YEARS...

Oh, and I love this forum and this community.

If someone can help me find one of these, I will grovel at your feet.

I can tell you that there isnt any in NC SC or VA. I work for a dealer in sales. I'd love to sell you one but I would pretty much bet they are all gone now.:smirk:

Thanks for the replies you guys.

jt - Can dealers ship bikes to each other free of cost? For instance, if I find one of these bikes in Texas, can they ship it to the dealer here in Colorado that I am working with for free?

Thanks again! There might be hope!

We normally just do a dealer transfer from a 100 mile range but sometimes farther. And it depends on fuel cost/manpower

You can definitely save some money if you find one. Suzuki has added a transfer bonus to dealers but it is supposed to end this month. The profit margin on the DRZ is about $500. Do the math. Its a total different story when Im selling a Hayabusa! :smirk:

I'm def willing to pay a fee to have it shipped if I have to... I hope I can make it work. Making it happen in 1 day might be difficult. I hate being the difficult customer... I am sure you know all about dealing with people like me. haha.

I found mine by just googling suzuki dealerships in my state (MN). At the time I was ready to buy I had found two. One disappeared quickly, and I called on the other quickly. Got it with 0.2 miles on her and the promotional $1000 off. Plus since I paid $2200 down I got locked in at 0% APR for the duration of the loan. Pretty awesome imo! I did notice though when I picked the bike up there was another 09 in its place on the showroom floor. Front and center...the first thing you see when you walk in. They want them gone! Good luck finding one though.

      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 ?
