    2001 DRZ 400S Rear Suspension Question

    UPDATE: Racetech spring has been installed and I honestly can’t believe the difference. It’s so much better I almost think my last set up may have been dangerous. Thank y’all for the advice.

    What additional adjustments are there with the 400E shock?

    2001 DRZ 400S Rear Suspension Question

    Oh I know, and if you find anything it’s usually expensive for quality components. It was super fun doing the swap though. If you’re on the fence, I’d say go for it if you stumble upon a good RM set.

    2001 DRZ 400S Rear Suspension Question

    I’m happy to answer, thanks for the question. -The forks came from a salvage 01’ RM250. -It’s MUCH easier if you find a set online that comes with the original triple clamps included with the forks. The Stock DRZ clamps will not fit. So try to find the whole assembly. -The steering feels much different and to be honest it took a while for me to get used to it. I’m chalking this up to the different offset angle. It’s much more precise and the bike likes to dart more at low speeds. Feels the same 25mph and faster. I hope this helps.

    2001 DRZ 400S Rear Suspension Question

    Thank you for the suggestion! Just ordered a new Racetech rear spring. I have this bike as a hobby and I like to do the work myself. Is a revalve job doable with standard tools?

    • Used - Good

    Looking to buy a used aftermarket exhaust for my DRZ. Exhaust can have cosmetic wear as long as it’s mechanically sound and comes with all necessary components for install.

    NO VALUE SPECIFIED

    Your Race Tech shock spring and weight?

    Did you have to buy the adaptor collars? I need the same spring. We’re just “big boned”
  9. Hi all, ISO fellow DRZ400S riders that have experience with the factory connection rear shock springs. Are these just plug and play? I ride a 2001 DRZ400S and I’m 6’3” 250lbs without gear. With Racetech, my recommended spring rate (6.66kg/mm) requires multiple adaptor collars which is causing my cart price to really sky-rocket. Trying to to save a little money with the Factory-connection spring if no additional components are needed. Ive just finished retrofitting a set of RM250 inverted forks (see picture) which feel great but my rear suspension is stock and entirely too soft. Any advice is appreciated!

    Just refinished the OEM header and Silencer to get me by while I save. Pretty satisfied!

    I will keep looking around, if you had to get one of those you listed above which would it be? Just finished the front end with salvage RM250 USD forks! So stoked.

    Hi William, what do you mean by WTB? Apologies, I’m new to this forum.

    ISO second hand Yoshimura RS2 or MRD exhaust for DRZ 400

    Thanks for the welcome ctrials! At this point I’ve spent almost every spare dime I have just getting this thing running lol. Sat in a barn since 04’ and was left to me after my old man passed away. Looking online, I’m seeing prices ranging from $300 to >$1000. That dang near brings a tear to my eye. I was hoping to keep it under $200 dollars, the exhaust can show wear as long as it’s mechanically sound.
  15. Hi guys, I’m new to TT and currently searching for a second-hand exhaust system for my DRZ-400S. I’m on a tight budget so buying new isn’t an option for me at the moment. With that being said, this horrid looking OEM exhaust has got to go! If there is anyone here wanting to sell their system, I’d be interested. Thanks in advance!
