    battery issues.

    If it is the battery good luck getting one, unless your suzuki dealer is close by. I had to drive a ways to get mine, 84.73 w/tax. Next time I'm going to buy Eddies setup, but it's nice out and didn't want to wait.

    Battery Problem?

    You could be going in the right direction, does it crank really slow? or not at all. also the light is on all the time, its a law. But from some of what i've read the batterys on thease bike kinda suck, I just read a week or so ago that Eddie came out with a kit to put a real battery on the bikes. My battery just went bad, I can slow charge it and it will work but once it gets cold out at night it won't start the bike in the morning. ps batterys for this bike are kinda hard to find unless you have a suzuki dealer close by, my honda dealer wants 150.00 for a replacement out of parts unlimited. (suzuki dealer is 50 miles from here, looks like im going on a road trip) but the suzuki dealer only wants 70.00 for thers. Sorry long post, kinda venting.....

    Who's DRZ runs PERFECT??

    Just follow Eddies jetting specs and you won't have any problems. My runs better than when I rode it home from the dealer. (well seems better)

  5. Hey Eddie thanks for all you information, we ALL really appretiate all the hard work you do for this site. 2007 DRZ-400SM 100% street 40F - 90F Northern WI. Ele. 1400-1600 above sea level Hard backroad twistys style riding. mostly high 2nd gear to 4th gear corner to corner. JD jet kit Blue needle, 3 clip. pos. 160mj 25 pilot 2.5 fuel screw 3X3 (the 3" puddy knife and torch trick worked great) Uni Filter Full RS-2, I left the screen in, but the more I read the more i'm thinking about taking it out, any comments on that? Really no popping except from while down shifting high in the rpm range, like coming into a corner. Nothing while normal riding, probley normal? Could you let me know if I'm in the ball park, I put on about 60 miles and it feels soft, I guess I could just be expecting to much from it. Thanks again for you time.

    Wisconsin DR-Z400SM Help

    You could try Vern's in Antigo, I bought my 07' last year, good customer service and I felt I got a fair deal. I traded my snowmobile in on it, but I don't remember what the OTD price was. Make sure you talk to Vern, he is a really nice person to deal with...
