Can any recommend a good ATV shop in the San Diego Area? My wife's LTZ400 is making a knocking noise in 2nd gear only. I fear a gear tooth got busted off when she popped it into second gear at high speed. Thanks
First i want to thank everyone for their input into the vast amount of knowledge that can be found on this site. It makes life a bit easier and interesting for people like me. MY question is about fitting a ltz400(or klx400)cylinder head onto a drz400. I've searched the forum quite a bit and need to be sure a couple of things. 1. I've read that the ltz400 head is a direct fit for the drz but i would need to plug the manual decomp if i'm putting the cylinder head on a drz400s model. How exactly is this done?I'm assuming the ltz400 head has manual decomp 2.If i were to buy a ltz400 head to put onto a drz400s, would it make a difference whether i bought the assembly parts (cams,valves,shims,springs,etc) for the drz or for the ltz? 3.I've read that the klx400 head is a direct fit also. Is there a specific year klx400 that only fits? Thanks in advance for the responses!
So a situation where I needed a new stator for my DRZ400 turned up. While searching for a spare DRZ400 stator I came up on a person selling an LTZ400 one for 60euros, looked pretty much unused as well. The only problem with the LTZ stator is that the wires are significantly shorter, the 3 wires that go to rectifier are good length, but the 4 wires that go to the CDI are too short and the 4 pin plug for the CDI is also different. (Left is LTZ400, right is DRZ400) After searching around the web there wasn't much info about putting an LTZ400 stator in a DRZ400, but I still decided to do it. What you need: The old DRZ400 stator The new LTZ400 stator Heatshrink tubing(Preferably adhesive lined ones, just like the ones for Free power mod) Sodering iron Solder Wire cutters and strippers It was actually easier than I expected: 1. Take the old stator and the new one and put them next to each other and put the wires next to each other. The DRZ wires will extend further out. 2. Cut the 4 wires that go to the CDI on the DRZ stator a little longer than what the LTZ stator is missing in length. 3. Cut off the 4 wire plug from the LTZ stator. 4. Now add the new cut wires from the DRZ to the end of the LTZ wires. Use a good wire splicing "knot", just so there is more than just solder holding them together. Splice matching colors together, so the blue wire from the LTZ stator goes to the blue wire from the DRZ cut wire, etc. Remember to put the heatshrink tubing on the wires before soldering them. 5. Seal the heatshrink by heating it while having it over the soldered part(And extending over it), probably not a bad idea to cover it some more with electric tape as well. 6. Turn the LTZ400 stator upside down and take off one of the wire "holders"(Picture below) as the LTZ400 stator cover has 2 cutouts for the 2 holders it has, while the DRZ400 cover only has 1 cutout. (Left is DRZ400 stator, right is LTZ400) After all that is done you can follow the normal instructions of putting the stator back in the bike. Have fun riding and I hope that this can help someone.
I'm looking for the best reliable atv for trail riding, the main thing I'm looking for is extremely low maintinance and I'm looking for the sport style atv, not the utility styled atvs. Don't really care about engine size just care that the quad fits me at 6'1, and won't get boring. Also looking for good reliability along with the low maintinance.
