Hello everyone. I can not find anywhere in this forum processing or remake sm to enduro for drz400sm so it is best to ask you. I'd like to buy a drz400sm and remake it in the enduro so I used it for off road. Is this problem and how much it would cost to do that? If anyone has experience with this it would be ok to show me a picture or something ... Thank you

I think u need to replace wheels/tires and gas tank so u don't bend it (and for weight issues). Replace muffler if necessary while rejetting ur carb (off-rd mufflers are lighter), Your bill in US $$$ might be close to $1200. There's a lot of cheap deals u can get on ebay regarding rims & tires. U might wanna consider flikering with front /rear suspensions regarding the sag. Suspension on off-rd bikes are set up differently then sm/rd bike.
Good luck.

Depends on how Enduroy you want to go.

All you would have to do is buy some 17" knobby tires.

I have seen some bikes with that set up. Kind of reminds you of the Yamaha TW200.

Im trying to talk my wife into one instead of another TW. She had a TW a couple of years ago and loved it except for the lack of power on the pavement.

My Clymer Manual shows it but not connected to anything. I guess they had extras and wanted to use them up.

G'day All,

I have a 2009 DRZ400SM with 25,000kms on the clock.

At the weekend while riding it I noticed some oil smoke when I back off then get back on the throttle, it wasn't much but more than I am used to. It still goes and revs as hard as ever.

The bike has had a pretty hard life (lots of high speed and heavy throttle work), but is always serviced and maintained.

I have read that some people have trouble with the crank case breather, what is the specific problem and what is the solution?

Thoughts and comments would be much appreciated.

Cheers

Stewart

It's for an optional remote trip meter reset switch.

I thought it was for the UK models, and it is a KM/hr to MPH Toggle. Doesn't show in the service manual, but its there in my owners manual... UK also has the flash to pass switch on the left hand electrical switch block, too.

3.9 Clarke tank question

I did a quick search and did not find what I was looking for....So here we go!

What is the range of a DRZ with a 3.9 gal Clarke tank? I just installed one on the bike on Friday, went for a ride today, 130 miles and the tank is about 1/2 full, I am estimating about 150-180 miles on a tank full of gas....sound about right?

Also how do you get the gas out of the right side of the tank to the pickup on the left side as the bottom of the sump is lower than the frame rail?

Thanks, Mac

Fuel consumption varies, depending on riding style, conditions, load, modifications, etc. Run a few tanks of fuel through it and you should get a pretty good handle on it...

Thanks, there are a few mods done to the bike, there is the 3X3, re-jet, Yosi pipe, and stock gear ratio, I ride moderate, I can get a little happy with the throttle (easy to do on a DRZ) but to the most part I ride "sane"
