    my 400sm is acting weird

    you should be able to trace the wires up underneith the seat cut them and connect them together and be good to go. Refer to this thread for more detailed explanation http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=161047&highlight=kick+stand+switch

    insurance company!!!!

    Someone may correct me if I'm wrong, but you should get the option to buy the bike back from the insurance company. You will get the money for what they value it at. Then would be able to buy it back and pay for the repairs yourself....

    Can the DRZ 400 go all day?

    I ran 70-80 mph a couple weeks ago for about 140miles one way then turned around 2 days later and went back and had no problems. I did gear up one tooth on the front to keeps the rpms down. Didn't notice any overheating or oil burning just a sore butt!

    Also running clip style master link, saves a lot of hassel when changing out front sprockets!

    using 160/60 rear tyre

    use the search function, you will find that many people have had good luck running a 160, not sure about that brand though. Many prefer the michelin pilot power

    Who rides with passengers???

    I've rode with passengers before and its not that bad. Never done more than 10-15 miles with a passenger though mostly just cruising around town. Didn't change my suspension at all either but I'm 200lbs and passenger was never over 115lbs either. Just use more caution when taking off and slowing down and you will be just fine. Handling wise, as long as they don't fight you when turning the drz does pretty well. For long trips you will probably end up uncomfortable pretty fast. I'd look for passenger pegs on ebay or watch the tt classifieds and see what you can find.

    Bought a 06 400 SM

    If you don't like the contiforce I'd recommend the Michelin Pilot Power, many guys run them here including myself, very nice tire. As far as mods check out www.wheelingcyclesupply.com Forrest is the drz man and has lots of nice parts for the z. Although before buying any parts you might want to buy a pair of pants for riding
