Messed around with the bike today, put on a beer can wrap around the shock reservoir

And installed a TTO Tachometer, nice piece for sure, pretty good for $30 bucks.

No.

I'm interested in what week-long ride requires 650 miles of highway riding per day to connect some single-track.

"Trail capable" gearing depends on the trail.

2001 DRZ 400S Plastic

I bought a used DRZ last fall and the PO had painted all the plastic black.. I would like to buy some original panels to get the bike looking more original. The plastic does not need to be perfect, but clean and no tears or major holes.

If I don't find anything by spring I suppose I will be either repainting or buying aftermarket plastic.

Last if anyone has picture a 2001 DRZ400S you could pass along as a reference that would be appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance

PS. This post is in the Gear Thread as well

I'd suggest 15/47 and a 114 link chain... It'll cruise at 110kph, but you might find it more comfortable at ~100kph. It'll get you over most of the rough stuff.
our high way speed limits range from 90 to 110 (55.9234 to 68.3508)

how would 15/47 work for tight woods and single track? i would imagine there would be some clutch bumping

thanks

The tighter it gets the more clutch bumping with that, maybe 14
would be better but hey aren't we back to " I need a six speed tranny"

I use this exact gearing and it works great in every terrains, including single track, tight trails and climping hills. I ride an E model though with keihin carb, rejettet and big muffler. I don't know if this would make any sense considering the E model has more power than an S. For example if i would to install the 440cc kid to my bike than 15/45 could pull pretty strong as well as 15/47 on 400cc motor i'll let u know when i install the 440cc or 434 cylinder kid in few months...I installed a 48t sproket on one of my tires but i haven't had the chance to try it.

There WILL be clutch bumping. Your left forearm will get huge. hehe But I use 14/44 for a lot of single track and the bikes does it fine. An option would be to drop a tooth size on your counter sprocket once you get to the trail. 14/47 is ideal for tight woods, IMHO.

I'm 39 and have never ridden before, I think this will be a good starter bike for me as I'm fairly light at 5'11 150 pounds. What a wealth of knowledge I've found here! But I'm still a neophyte! Can't wait to have something to tinker with again. I was into 4x4's pretty heavily but haven't done anything active hobby wise for like 7 years. I'm getting anxiety and depression back it's time to get back out there and have fun!
Nevermind the DRZ400 was apparently stolen. FML

To be frank, if you own a DR-Z and don't know what gearing is required, then you should really get out and ride it some more. Start with what you have and spend the $20 on a 14T sprocket.
haha haha

I tried 14/44, then 16/44, and found that the 15/44 works the best for true 50/50 type riding, from climbing hard trails, to doing 95 mph, that gearing (15/44) does both pretty good, great combo imo.

No, not tight stuff. Its so much nicer with 14/47. No slippage, no 'almost' got that section. Just go !

Works great for gymkhana too
