    18" or 19" front wheel?

    What width rim are you using? Got any pics? I've seen pictures with 19" front but never seen an 18" on a drz

    Where did you get your rim and spokes?

    18" or 19" front wheel?

    So I've got a perfectly good spare 21" front wheel laying around, I had this thought that instead of spending $1k on 17" sm wheels, would there be any value in lacing a 18" or 19" rim on my spare front hub? Maybe later down the line pick up a cheap used rear wheel and have a set of 18/21 off-road wheels and 18/(18 or 19) street wheels. I know I've seen threads on 18/19 set ups so I'm sure I can find where they got their rims and spokes, but I've never seen anything about 18/18 so I'm not even sure if there's rims and spokes that would make that work.

    Why would a DRZ have a salvage title?

    Actually haven't watched TV in the longest time, doesn't surprise me tho, especially if it's Cleveland

    Why would a DRZ have a salvage title?

    I guess I assumed most people work on these bikes themselves rather than turning it over to insurance. I was in an accident on my drz and I made all the repairs myself without insurance
  6. Just curious, always wondered what it would take to cause a dirt bike to have a salvage title. https://akroncanton.craigslist.org/mcy/d/2005-suzuki-drz400-supermoto/6726361288.html Not looking to buy or anything but I've seen this a few times as he's lowered it from $3000 or more to this current price, I'm sure something is wrong with it since no one has bought it yet, although if the price continues to drop it might be worth it if the wheels and forks are in good condition (although yellow isn't my color)

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    I love this! I hope you don't mind if I copy your idea for my own personal use? How did you measure that radius on the brake lever side? Looks like you got a perfect fit
  8. I'm kind of ashamed to say...I don't do much offroading.....but I do however do lots of wheelies lol, so at times I think it would be nice to know how fast I'm going with the front wheel off the pavement. I've never cared how fast I'm going off-road tho and the mileage is off anyway (trail tech Vapor reset for some reason) not too important to me tho and I don't plan on selling this bike. Also the speedometer wire gets bunched up (I have an unconventional fork guard) so putting it in the back would eliminate that as well
  9. Ah I completely forgot that was a thing, but I do have a trail tech sensor that might fit in that hole if I remove all the plastic around it
  10. I want to move the wheel speed sensor for my Trail Tech Vapor to the back wheel. While looking at the rear caliper for a place to mount it, I found this hole (looks like a m6 threaded hole) and am now curious what it's for. It's lined up perfectly with the brake rotor bolts so it's almost as if maybe out there somewhere is a wheel speed sensor bolt that screws right into that hole. Anyone know if my theory is correct?

    BSR36 question

    Picked up my CVK40 for $100 plus the Schnitz needle and a new main jet for slightly more than $30. Can probably sell the stock carb on eBay and get some of that money back. Very cost effective way to get the responsiveness you're talking about.

    Question for those running a CVK40

    Mine is off a 03 klr, I can't really tell how you have your cables secured, no bottom nut?

    Question for those running a CVK40

    Thanks guys! I saw that picture before but couldn't find it again, just what I needed, wish me luck as I will try again Sunday when the new cable comes

    Question for those running a CVK40

    I'm sure part of this is due to the worn cable I'm working with (bout to order a new one) but in addition to the fact that it was far from snappy, it wouldn't open the carb all the way up. This is where I'm wondering where do people grind off material and is that really necessary or is there a way around that. You use both cables? Is the throttle still snappy? I ditched the return cable because I couldn't get the throttle to be snappy with both installed (with the stock carb)
  15. I've done lots of research on the CVK40 swap and was feeling pretty comfortable until I tried to set up the throttle cable today (wasn't planning on using a return cable). I don't know why but I've always had a ton of trouble getting the throttle cable just right on this bike. Can anyone show me their setup for the throttle cable with the CVK40? Not really sure whats the best way to route the cable down to the carb or how the mount the cable to the carb itself (seen some people say remove material from the carb bracket and others say they didn't need to). Maybe it would help if I knew how the cable was originally routed from the factory, because in the few years I've owned this bike I've tried many different ways and never seemed to be able to get it just right.
