New KLX 400 / DRZ

Recommended Posts

ET Al; I just pulled the trigger on an 03' KLX 400 and I found out that it is a DRZ too! Anyway, does EVERYTHING swap?

I need / want to put a bash plate, maybe a bigger tank, kick start kit. It already has slim line blinkers and a nice tail rack.

Any suggestions?

Merry Christmas all.....

What model have you got...?.

The 2003 KLX400r and KLX 400sr are just green DRZ’s.

R is a E model and SR is a S model.

If bike is stock and it's got a slant body Keihin carb , I would suggest you have the R model..

SR will have the mikuni carb

Yes everything swaps, it is a Suzuki in green clothes. Basically a 2003 DRZ S or E in a different color.

I need / want to put a bash plate, maybe a bigger tank, kick start kit. It already has slim line blinkers and a nice tail rack.

Any suggestions?

Merry Christmas all.....

Do the relibilty fixs found in the FAQ,

Locktite fix the counter shaft sprocket, counter balancer nut, primary nut, stator screws, flywheel/starter gear fasteners.

Remove the rear suspension and swing arm, clean and grease the bearings.

Do the free power mod

The bike is actually manufactured by Suzuki in a joint marketing deal that they had with Kawasaki....anything that is made and sold for a DRZ400 will fit, as what you have IS a DRZ in Kawi clothing!

I have one of each, one green, and one yellow.....the two fastest colors I might add!

And yes, the kick start kit will fit....:bonk:
