I've crashed hard many times and other than bent bars (the stock steel bars bend easily so be ready to replace them) all the protective gear (radiator guards, case savers, hand guards, skid plate, etc.) have come through.

Big Bore /Stroker Kits

Thanks Plane Dr for your reply on the BB/Stroker kits I am thinking similar thoughts for
the work involved do both. Which kit did you buy and from where? Ebay or other online retailer?

Some may remember that I bought my '00 DRZ400 E in April put on some case savers,bash plate
and hand guards,lower gearing then rode a few DS events and w/e rides.I have been buying parts
and access. to personalize to my riding habits and/or faults. Items awaiting installation S subframe,
kickstart kit,top triple w/GPR stabilizer and new OS front rotor (bent the original somehow?)Only one
item was actually needed Oh and new tires F/R.

On the wish list-- larger tank .rear rack, more quiet exhaust( it has the quiet core/S/A insert but only 2DB
below limit) and of course a BB and/or stroker kit. And if I am not already crazy the W/R gearset. Yes I
know there will be some say it won't be a DRZ 400 anymore a hybrid but does anybody know more than
5 riders that have a factory showroom stock bike? I can't think of Any...we personalize making it standout
from the crowd,some mods are just for looks ,some are improvements...Thanks for your time...JMO
....David

Millenium is the cheapest I found for a quality 434bb kit. Send your cylinder, theyll ship a oem cylinder bored/plated with a JE piston with all the clips, bearings and gaskets for around $500. Im getting mine for $419 plus shipping so...$450 total.

The MCCT was designed to overcome an issue with the pre-'02 ACCT. Suzuki changed the ACCT after that, but the debate rages on as to whether the MCCT is still necessary or not (i'm erring towards not).

I bought an '05 in April of this year with less than 5k on it. The cam chain was stretched to the point of the acct being at full travel and the chain was still loose. It's MY opinion that the acct puts too much tension on the cam chain. YMMV.

Nice bike inmate, it,s so clean, let da scratching begin . Regarding ur radiator guards, it u decided to go with the big IMS tank (later on) that would provide u with enough protection to ur rad. and help u save money.

I crashed hard one time i got some scratches on my tank but with saddle bags installed on it, it protected even more...

I also noticed ur handlebars are maybe the stock one? if so i strongly suggest to replace them asap especially if you're hitting the trails soon. MSR, Moose racing, Protaper or Renthal provide good products for such purpose. Remember if it's stock it suck ...

Does anyone here have a spacer off a stock petcock that they'd be willing to part with? I have the raptor petcock and it doesn't fit very well on the stock tank.

'07 DRZ400S For Sale (PA/NJ)

Hey Everybody,

I have a 2005 DRZ400S for sale. The bike has been phenomenal to me and was a great first bike, but I wanted to get another bike. Plausibly a two-stroke. It has a hair over 6300 miles on it and I've only taken it off-road a couple of times.
Here's what's done:
-FMF PowerCore4 Slip-On
-Moose Handlebars (RM Bend, it's a lot more comfortable)
-New Mirrors
-And Acerbis Handguards that I took off when I put on the new handlbars
It's stock otherwise. If you live in NJ or Eastern PA, please, let me know if you're interested at all.

I have the craigslist ad for it below

150ron, opening up the stock can won't get you any additional power unless you use a larger aftermarket header pipe. Then you'd probably have to re-jet.

How is the bike running right now? Has the 3x3 mod been done to it?

The rock I hit at @1:34 represents the ideal scenario where a rider could benefit from a stabilizer (granted not hitting the rock would have worked too). I got jerked rather hard and nearly bucked off the bike. My Scotts is off the bike as it needs to be rebuilt. In that instance I wish I would have had it on the bike.





What route did you guys do??

do not touch the 3 yellow wires, then just bolt the RR box back to the frame?
about the three yellow wires: if you research the stator failure you will find that the connecter that the three yellows feed is a frequent failure. it is in your best interest to 'jumper' the three yellows across the connecter and if/when you need to disconnect there just clip the jumpers. your call.

Rear Shock Compatibility

Quick Question -- I have a 2004 s model and my husband tells me there is something wrong with the rear shock-- I quote:"the low speed adjustment has no stops" apparently it still clicks, but has no stops. I was told the only way to fix this is to replace the shock. So, I found someone in my city with a rear shock from a 2000 or 2001 drz-e model. My question is, is this shock compatible with my 2004 drz-s?

Thanks!
SB
