The smaller part goes toward the engine - the round top is the contact for the cap that goes on top.

I just noticed the link in your sig - your rebuild thread in October is part of what helped me decide to get a DRZ and rebuild it (as oppose to just getting a brand new bike).
If you hadn't started your thread I probably wouldn't know jack about those pins. Funny how that works.

So, I put them in the holes, they just sit in there? No springs or anything? Theres no magnetic pull from the engine or the other piece...

I can't believe yours just fell out - I was holding my engine sideways and shaking it to get them out before I was told
by someone to use a magnet, then they came right out.

Anyways - hope all goes well with the rest of your build.

Edit: I think there are springs - when you put them in and depress them they should pop up a little less than a quarter inch to keep tension against the cap.

Well, I distinctly remember them falling out...so what does that black hockey puck thing do? Im thinking something may be broken if they just fell out...

Thanks, just ordering parts now, almost have everything, just need intake cam, head, left radiator, right radiator sensor, primary gear for the clutch, clutch plates and im going to throw on a fmf power bomb header...thats it.

The cap? It just holds the contacts to run the switch.

I'll be home in like an hour and a half and then I can take pics of all parts and the order they go in.


I just checked every microfiche I can find on the DRZ and nothing shows those contacts/springs/cover or mentions neutral indicator at all. Damn.
As mentioned I'll put up what I can when I get home.

Ok, so I was wrong about them having any magnetic anything holding them in place - guess mine were just stuck

However they are spring loaded.

http://i65.photobucket.com/albums/h2...psd0d07dc9.jpg

Will post spring dimensions shortly - have a question about which microfiche shows these on TT, hopefully someone responds.


Ok - they are about a half inch long (uncompressed) 11.5mm and just under 3/8ths in. (4.5mm) wide. Wish I could be more help...

mmm

Sounds like a timing chain stretched to me... I wouldn't worry about the head until the valves are needing reshimmed every oil change.

Coolant Reservoir

Anyone know where I can find a coolant overflow tank for my 2001 DRZ? I hear turkey basters work, any tips on that will get me by till I find the real thing would also be helpful.

Cheers!!

Use a turkey baster and don't look back. Mine has worked great for years.

Nope, sounds like a tight valve. A timing chain that is stretched makes a rattle noise as idle comes down... Like when you adjust a mcct. A tight valve will tick constantly.

I've had my can chain loosen up a couple times over the years.... Once with a acct and a couple times since the mcct and new chain. It has never sounded like that. When my valves got tight tight many years ago it sounded exactly like that. I also had the starting problems that he mentions. Bike would run fine when warm but cold I would kill my battery at times trying to get it started.


Edit: oh and... The two main weak parts of a DRZ in my eyes are the valves and the oiling system. I don't take chances with either. I use the best oil possible and of a valve gets tight I rebuild the head. I'll only shim it once on the initial rebuild, check them at 3,000 miles and never look back. I also make sure to run very clean air filters at all times to help make sure I don't have to rebuild a head again. Its worked so far.

Really? Why not just use the OE bottle?

Got pics?

I took the DRZ on a ride on Sunday. It was mostly washes & various terrains. Here's one of my vids.
