I need headlight wiring help on a 2k DRZ 400s

Ok...So I'm in the process of un-fudging some wiring done to the headlight. The previous-previous owner put ATV bars on, hence neggating the left control switch and installing a toggle for the headlight. I'm in the process of installing a baja designs left control and trying to figure out how to properly rewire the headlight. Here's what I'm dealing with...






Does anyone have a picture of their headlight properly wired. The way mine was wired, it had the B/W wire cut and ran through the toggle, the yellow into an orange wire, and the white dangling.

BTW.....I suck at reading schematics...

2 questions

im currently fitting bar risers. the ignition switch unit cannot be incorporated into the bolt assembly of the bar risers. is there an after market bolt on assembly used to secure the ingnition stem in this instance? or what have other people done to secure the ignition stem? i could get a new bit of plate made up to fit the bolt hole positions of the bar riser clamp but im hoping there is another solution.

also, does anyone know where i can get a clear or lightly tinted "bikini" style bolt on windshield? im going to be fitting twin round headlights (like what baja designs and buell offer) and want to fit a new windshield when i do.

thanks.

I zip tied mine to the inner handguard mount. Used a bit of foam to keep it from rattling away.

SM knobbies

for the people asking about putting knobbies on the SM 17's, I figured I would share some pictures. These are Shinko Trail Tire SR244's 4.60x17 front, 5.10 x17 rear. They are not front/rear specific tires.

I did this on a friends DRZsm for a one weekend trip, work very well, even on the sand down here in Floriduh. He never did another dual sport weekend so I got the tires back. I have the rear on my KLR but will never use the front. If anyone close by wants the front "Golden Boy" they can have it, or someone distant can have it for the cost of shipping. IIRC, the set was really cheap anyway.

I just installed them yesterday and have only put 50ish on/off road miles on...but: it does make the bike handle completely different. On the road is where I noticed the most change possibly due to the width of the front tire or the squarish profile. The corner turn-in is a little odd...but once riding I got used to it quickly. It seemed to grip the road enough on the pavement. Off road it was way better than the pilot power's I had mounted, but that was assumed. I'm not sure if I'll keep the knobbies on full time, or swap back and forth. They are very cheap so I don't mind if they burn off quickly, I just wanted them mounted for an enduro rally coming up. I do really like the looks of it though...its my urban assault vehicle

Those tires look awesome. Kind of looks a little like a TW200, but with a lot more power.

Should scare the weaklings in any group ride

Might be tricky in sand though, let us know on that (depends on your technique too, sit way back in the saddle and use the front like a ski) I use third at mid rpm.

That reminds me...I'm going to have to pick up another sprocket. I went down 3 in the rear to 15/38....which worked great on the highway with the street tires. These tires are taller and required a lot of clutch work for trail riding....maybe I'll try going down one in the front.

This is why you need a second set of wheels !
Really you need one down in the front and up 3 (over stock) in the rear.
Not sure how that figures with smaller wheels BUT if you get to enjoy the dirt a lot you may just want TWO bikes

I considered getting a second set a wheels, but I am mainly a street rider and could not justify the expense. I think I have less than $100 into the Shinkos and its free for me to swap back and forth if needed. I also didn't want to have to lengthen and shorten a chain constantly having a street and dirt gear setups. ....and I already have 3 bikes, so my motorcycle needs are subdued at this time, but there is some vacant garage space
