    Does a 2015 RMZ 250/450 front wheel fit on a DRZ?

    Yep, it does. On appearance (I have not taken any measurements mind you) the RM hoop is identical to the DR-Z hoop. Other than the DRZ having the tangs for the speedo, the hubs are the same, too, and use the same bearings, seals, spacers, brake rotor and axle. Hell, the forks, and probably the clamps (I haven't measured the offsets to verify) are the same on RM models with the conventional fork, and they share the same brake caliper. I did notice, however, the spokes do not have the same diameter. You can adapt the larger rear brakes of the RM to the DRZ quite easily, too.

    21x1.60, but the spoke hole pattern needs to match.

    You're really testing my memory here, but I think its 1997-2008. RM wheels are easier to find and much cheaper. I paid $100 for mine, complete with brake rotor, tire and tube, all in excellent condition. There's one thing to consider, though: RM wheel hubs do not have the tangs to drive the OEM speedo gear.

    Will a 400SM seat fit on a '01 DRZ 400

    Yep, they're all the same.

    Regarding the rear wheel, I haven't found any other Suzuki wheels to fit the rear. Oddly enough, a KTM rear wheel bolts right up, but you need to use KTM sprockets and brake rotor.

    Yeah, the RMZ wheel does not fit. You want an RM125/250 front wheel.
  8. Factory left side spacer works without modification, or order up some RM 250 spacers from the aftermarket.

    Carb problems when standing on adventure bike

    Did you bypass the kickstand safety switch? If not, you have discovered one of the reasons why it is recommended to do so.

    My first drz400s and disappointed.plea for advise

    I bet that's a carb warmer for cold climates. I think in some regions that was a standard feature.

    Sounds normal. Don't know if they're any different in the UK, but DRZs over hear are delivered running lean to meet emissions requirements and benefit greatly from the mods I listed, especially the jet kit.
