    Short Guy on a FE 450

    Need some help/advice here. I've been looking at FE 450s and 501s (not that displacement matters) for a while and am ready to lay down the cash. BUT, I hadn't sat on one until today while I was at the dealer. To say they felt tall (which I knew) is an understatement. I may have changed my mind. I have a 28" inseam and have been talking to a couple suspension companies about lowering (which I knew would be necessary) the bike about 2 inches. Here is my concern, after sitting (trying to) on the bike I wonder if it will be low enough. I'm sure there are KTM/Husky riders out there with my inseam. Does this amount of lowering make the bike manageable? I would like to be able to get a foot or two down.

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    The pegs are RHK Pursuit from Australia, got them off the big auction site which was the only place I could find them. Only took a couple of weeks to get them once I finally pulled the trigger. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SUZUKI-DRZ400-RHK-PURSUIT-FOOTPEGS-BLUE-00-12-/181150630365?pt=AU_Motorcycle_Parts_Accessories&hash=item2a2d6b41dd The Zeta axle blocks are close, but not an exact match, I would say just a touch of purple. The people that make the pegs also make an axle block.

    Added some bling and a headlight. Might need to make the headlight brighter

    help! registration issues, should I part it out?

    Usually in CA a bike has to have at least 7500 (I believe) miles on it before you can register it from out of state, so you don't have that problem. Don't have AAA do you? If you haven't tried calling the DMV I would suggest that as opposed to going to one of their locations. I guess before parting out the bike, I would see about selling it whole. Try C-list maybe someone from a state that is more willing to take registration money would buy it. If you can, post a picture of the bike and others on this site can estimate its value. Good luck.

    Not just another headlight mod

    It looks like a single wire that goes into the controller that comes with the ADVmonster setup. Its a little hard to see from this picture, but gives the general idea. I know there is power going to the light, so I think that narrows it down to the light being bad. Which is a drag since they are fairly expensive. Now, I need to decide on buying a replacement light or installing the OEM setup. I like the husky mask better and its a lot lighter.

    All the wiring looks good, maybe the light is just burnt out. Guess I'll call the ADVmonster tomorrow and check on getting a new one.

    Yep, that's it. I'll take a look at the wiring and see how it matches up. Thank you for the insight.

    Not just another headlight mod

    Not sure how I stumbled on this string, but hopefully, I can find out some info. I have the ADVmonster light (model 60), and it stopped working. Not being a great wrench and having not done the install I'm trying to understand if the light is bad or something else is causing the issue. Is there a way to tell if the light is burnt out? I don't know how the wiring might have got messed up. The wiring only uses the low beam wire, the other wire coming of the unit (control unit?) next to the light is just there and not plugged in. By the way, it is the Husky headlight adapter kit. I'll probably end up calling the ADVmonster, but thought I would start here in hopes that it a relatively easy fix. These lights are expensive to replace. I don't run at night, but need something to be seen.

    Asv levers

    Circling back on this thread...If one removes the clutch safety from the SMs, can you run the whole clutch side ASV assembly? if so, is there a certain part number in the C6s that is correct/best to use? Cheers
  12. Got it thanks for the info. Just thought about this, is your bike a S or SM?
  13. Kind of dumb question, but I've been looking at the ASV Web Site and can't find direct bolt ons for the DRZ in the C6, the Site points to a F3. I see you have the dust cover along with the lever. Do you happen to have the model/part number still? If not, would you let me know where you bought them. I also need the clutch side, which I'm guessing you purchased also. I have read about obstruction issues with the ASVs, did you experience any think like that? Thanks

    2013 DRZ SM Stage 1 CAM

    Looking at getting a 2013 SM with a 39 FCRMX, MRS exhaust and a hot cams stage 1. Is there anything to worry about as far as reliability with the hot cam? Cheers
