Recommended Posts

hey, i just bought a 2005 dr-z400s with 2075 miles on it. just picked it up yesterday. i would like to change all the fluids in it before i even ride it. wondering what kind of fluids you guys use? in my quad i always used engine ice coolant, and bel-ray thumper oil. is there something better for a drz? thanks

Well, that’s not many miles for a ’05 and the fluids currently in the bike may have been there for a while. I’d give it a good engine cleaning using some new dino oil with about 8 oz of Seafoam, as well as another 8 oz Seafoam in a full tank of gas. Run the bike for a couple hours, then drain oil/change filter. The Seafoam will break up a lot of the carbon deposits and sludge which many be in your engine. The Seafoam in the gas will clean your carb too if you aren’t inclined to take it off for a more complete cleaning. I’ve used it for years as PM in my autos and bikes. Works pretty good for cleaning, too.
