If it does work, does anyone have a rear frame with pegs they would like to part with?

Yes, but you will need to tweak the exhaust mount and trim the rear plastic.

I ended up "fabbing" a bracket from an extra upper motor mount plate.

Do I need to buy a new cam chain? What else do I need?
Not really if it doesn't have any signs of wear. But just to be on the safe side they're around $30 new in case u decided otherwise.

I have a query reguarding the fan on the DRZ400, I have a ccm SR40 with a DRZ400E engine and I want to put a kick start on it. However the location of the fan on the Raditaor (from a DRZ400S) of the CCM means that the de compressor won't fit.

I have a couple of questions

1. For anyone on a DRZ 400 S or SM how often does the fan Kick in while you are riding and in what situation does it kick in?
2. For anyone with a DRZ 400E does any one have any horror stories due to the bike over heating in stop start traffic or on technical trails due to the bike not having a Fan on the raditaor??
3. For anyone with a DRZ 400 E do you need a decompressor to kick start the bike??

Re the rack question....

Thanks to all you guys who took the trouble to reply, again very much appreciated.
The rack that I ordered this afternoon is this .

Part number
990D0-29F00-065


It's mainly to carry my tools and camera on the trails, so no real heavy load carrying capacity required.

I really do envy the guys who can weld, your work is great.
Welding both gas and arc, is something that I briefly touched on while doing my apprenticeship many many moons ago, and never followed up on, one of those things that I'd wished that I'd kept up.

The Striker installation uptade, the saga continue . I never was able to get any reading (mph) when installing that sucker (the sensor) on the caliper, i tried everything, nada. So my buddy send me a photo of his mod regarding mounting that sensor. So i finally got it right and worked great after a test ride (accurate reading with gps comparison).
I got $1.59 L shape bracket from Ace Hardware, mounted the sensor on it and hold it down with 12mm bolt that hold the axle.


I measure the exact distance sensor to rotor with digi-caliper (used the depth gauge) at 4.5mm is the sweet spot.

and wrote down on sensor (just in case).

I got my new cokpit look for now until i get bored again and start adding other stuff to it...

Personally I'd be inclined to ditch the kick start and keep the fan, the former can always be circumnavigated by a set a simple jump leads, especially if there are two of you, the latter however has the potential to really piss on your parade.
If battery failure is preying on your mind than buy a new battery, something like an odessy perhaps?
Plus as the batteries aren't exactly huge, how about just carrying a spare?, and with the extra room that it'll take up just share out the space with your riding buddy?

I can only assume you've picked up all the additional information about my situation from my post on ABR, as I made no reference to my "riding buddy" or exactly what I was doing with the upgrade on my post on this thread.

At no point in either thread have I asked for an alternative to a kick start I am just trying to find facts out about the DRZ 400 cooling system.

However anyone with common sense would see that I must of posted the same question here because I didn't get the facts I require over there, so why on earth would you just summarize what was posted over there rather than answer the actual questions I asked.

Yeah this use to be a logo for cigarette sign (they use it in smoke shops ). The bottum is plastic and as u see the top is plastic window. Between the tablet and mounting bracket i squeeze in another piece of metal (1' 1/4 by 4') to support that first one in case of a crash, which has been crash tested last year and passed the test. In the event of long ride I take precision notes (making it a road-book) and slide them under that plastic window and secure it with a clip on the side.

No offence, but if people are going to quote something with photos, could they delete the less relevant ones so we aren't scrolling through the same slide show again?
