  1. Time Left: 20 days and 2 hours

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I have a like new (used for only 2 months - maybe 50 hours total) Seatconcepts seat that fits the DRZ 400 from 2000 - 2019 and 03/04 KLX 400 R/SR. This is an amazing upgrade over the stock seat in terms of comfort and looks(it's wider in the back and it also has grippy material on top to keep you from sliding around). This cost $279.99 new (without tax and shipping) and I'm asking for $150 or best offer since it's barely used. I'm only selling it because I sold the bike.

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Sold my Z last night... every year when winter comes in MA I tell myself I’m moving out West and once I relocate I will find another one. Mine was an 06 with 15,700 mi so the next one I get will be much newer and less mileage. Of course I’m sad to let it go but I just don’t want to ride it in the winter because the weather here is awful. I’m still going to keep coming on this site because it’s a great forum and I enjoy seeing the work you guys (and gals) put in. Thank you everyone for making this forum such a great place!

    Southern New England riders?

    Bump - Anyone!?

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    I’m still getting comfortable off road with this bike (it’s a lot different than the smaller 2 strokes I’m used to) and was surprised when the front wheel came up a few times on my last ride. I figured the feeling might scare me but it felt great so now I have more confidence in the bike and I wish the season wasn’t ending here in New England!

    Are there any quality headlight style upgrades?

    If you get the right one the rubber holds up well, I had one on my 600RR for about 7-8 years and it was never garaged just covered so it was in all the extreme temps (95 F/0 F)
  6. haha that's sweet, does anyone know what the stock one looks like? Mine looks like just a turkey baster without the rubber top.

    I have seen a few people mention this "China stunt lever", what is it exactly just a knock off replacement lever?

    How hard was it to wire up, and what is the link to purchase on ebay? Please PM me if it won't let you place it here. Also please get some photos of the light output! Thanks in advance

    Handlebars loose, help!

    I just noticed that there is some play/wiggle room in my handlebars, right where the risers meet the triple tree (or whatever you call it on this bike). I circled the area in red on the diagram below and drew an outline of what the riser looks like. While stationary I can move the bars front and back, on the right side connection it looks like they are moving more than they should since the bolts should be in the hole it shouldn't move at all, right? I tried to tighten them but they are at the max and won't go any further. I can see the movement and it seems like they are only mounted on the left. I will try to back out the bolts and see if they are long enough then take a video/some photos. I didn't install the risers so I'm thinking maybe the bolts don't go all the way down to reach into the triple. So people with risers who installed them on their own - do your bolts go all the way down and that is what holds the risers in place? Maybe I'm missing something but it seems pretty straight forward.
