    Will DRZ rims fit KTM?

    That would be pretty simple, do you know if the axle diameter is the same?
  2. I have a set of Marchesini rims on my 2005 DRZ400s and I am considering buying a 2012 KTM 500 EXC, does anyone know if my current rims will or can be made to fit the KTM? Thanks,

    Go All In or Cut Bait

    Actually the only part I am concerned about is the fine tuning - carb, valving adj. and timing

    Hum - I enjoy the work, but am know mechanical whiz - any idea what Eddie would charge for BB, Cams, and valves?

    Thanks to you all for your thoughts, but honestly they have not clear the fog. I think the only thing keeping me from selling my DRZ and moving on is that fact that I like to modify bikes and see/feel the results. And at the end of the day if I end up with a bike that is 40lbs heavier and 10hp shy of a KTM/Husky it makes little difference as I have no intention to race. And for me nothing beats riding a one of a kind, custom built (by me) bike, anyone can read a review, walk into a showroom, put 10% down and walk out with the current "cool" bike. I guess I just want both;)

    Great Discussion - Thanks I already have a 2008 Ducati Hypermotard S and a 2009 Suzuki RMZ250 - so the DRZ is/would be a street motard with occasional use as a green sticker off-roader - just to follow the boy around.

    Another thought, if I do "go all in" I want to upgrade the suspension (re-value and new springs). For cosmetic reasons would like to switch to the SM inverted forks - are the better or worse or just preference?

    Hello Gentlemen, I have a 2005 DRZ400s that I got new and pour money into - FCR carb, full Yosh exhaust, 3x3, Marchesini rims, 320mm rotor and a bunch of cosmetic stuff. I am looking for a bit more power and not sure if I should dump more money in (that I will certainly not get out) and go big bore, valves, cams or get what I can for it and buy a used KTM or Husky. Any thoughts, direct experience? Thanks for your time.

    DRZ400s Rear Compression Question

    Ouch - thanks
  12. I have a 2005 DRZ400s, I am running a motard setup. My issue is the Low Speed (small screw inside nut) compression adjustment - it simply spins endlessly in either direction with very little resistance. There is no leaking and other than the fact that it is "stuck" at a setting that is too soft works fine. I am looking for Max Stiffness - if it has to be stuck at one setting. Any ideas on how to fix / adjust?
  13. I have a set of Marchesini 17" on mine with a 320 wave rotor and re-locator bracket - I keep a set of non-dot knobbies on the stock 21/18 set I can swap them out in 15 to 20 minutes when I want to hit the dirt. The bike handles far better on the 17" rims, faster turn in, more stable at lean and MUCH stronger braking with the 320 (although I must remove one pad to get the caliper back on)
  14. I have a 2005 DRZ400S and am looking for a good shop that can do some work I have been wanting to do for years, but have no time. I have an FCR39 and full system on it and would like to do a big bore and hot cams. I am actually in West Hills, CA. Thanks,

    DRZ400S - Are 17" Rims Worth the $$

    Did you get your rims, tires, rotor, etc. through Motostrano.com? They have a kit that seems pretty good for the money.
