    Stall-O-Matic Crash-O-Matic

    I’ve got a new 2005 DRZ-400S (500 miles) (stock) that has an issue with stalling. With the bike warmed up, starting from idle, quickly crack-open the throttle and the engine stalls. This has become a problem when riding sandy trails down here in Florida. Throw the bike into a turn, down shift, give it some gas and dump the clutch. You would expect me to blast right out wouldn’t you but no the engine stalls and I fall flat on my side. This scenario has happened several times. The “Dealer” bumped up the idle and gave the excuse that this wasn’t a real dirt bike and I should take it easy. Before the 2005 I had a 2002 DRZ-400S converted to a Supermoto and that bike ripped. Have any else had this problem and if so how did you over come it? Thanks Doug

    Intermittent starting problem

    A friend of mine just bought a new 05 “S”. Everything was fine at first but after a few hundred miles it developed a problem. Turn the key on, the lights come on but when you push the start button, nothing. I suggested looking at the switches in the kickstand, clutch lever and making sure it’s in neural. Also make sure the battery cables are tight. Has anyone had a similar problem with a new bike? Thanks Doug

    Seats

    How does the Suzuki Gel seat compare to the cobin seat on the DRZ? Thanks

    Frame and Engine Paint

    Has anyone found the frame and engine paint in a can? Thanks Doug

    S model plastic

    I just picked up a 2002 DR-Z400S (M). It has brand new Excel wheels & hubs, yoshi exhaust, Pro Taper bars, new tires, jet kit, and hand guards. My only complaint is the plastic is scratched up. Where is the best place to get a deal on plastic for the S model or should I cover the scratches with vinyl? Thanks Doug

    Trailer in a bag

    I built one for myself a few years ago similar to this one but of course it wasn’t that wimpy. It was mostly built out of 3x3x1/4 steel angle. I will post a picture once I figure out how. Hahaha. I think the trailer designers forgot we are very proud of our bikes and wouldn’t trust hauling them on something like that. If you guys are interested and able I could send the CAD drawings and model of the trailer I built. If you have a chop saw, drill and a welder you can build your own. Cost was about $250 Doug

    Owners Manual

    I just got a 2002 DR-Z400S(M). I am wondering if anyone has a owners manual I can download? I will post pix soon. Thanks Doug

    Thanks, I think I will work on lowering the price. That will give me more room for the repairs.

    New 2003 Cannondale (repost)

    I have the opportunity to purchase a NEW 2003 Cannondale X440 Bike from a local dealer for 3K. We all know the reasons why the dealer is unable to sell it but at this low price should I snag it? Thanks

    Local dealer seems high on OTD price...

    I am getting serious about buying the 2005 DR-Z400SM.. Now the question is where to buy it. The Suzuki dealers here are sad and if the product didn’t sell itself they would be out of business. I did a search for dealers in Florida and called a few. They ranged from$6,400 to $6,800 out the door and that’s what really counts. Today I ran into a company on the web called Motorcycle Brokers (www.motorcycle-brokers.com). They advertise the 2005 DR-Z400SM for $5,599 with no tax and no setup fee (you have to set it up yourself). They say the will ship anywhere in the US for $200 through Forward Air. So the total investment would be $5,800 and that’s the best I’ve seen so far. So here is my question, has anyone purchased from Motorcycle Brokers? How was the experience? How long did it take to get the bike? Thanks in advance Doug

    Ready to purchase a new DR-Z400SM

    I know exactly what you mean. My Kawasaki Dealer is great. I have purchased 4 bikes from him and he really takes care of me. At this point Kawasaki doesn’t make a street legal available Supermoto. So this is why I have turned to the internet. Thanks
