don't know for sure but the tires may be a bit oversized so it lacked clearance and may rub against the cable on the inner side of the fork?? (or not)

nice looking bike!!

I think there might be a touch of optical illusion going on there, black rims with new(ish) tyres?

Sm wheel options

While on the lookout for some used DRZsm wheels, I ran across this site with info on using Honda wheels. Has anyone tried this route?

DRZ400, intermiittant spark

Guys, I can't find any info on what the symptoms of a bad rotor on A DRZ400 are. The bike that I'm working on will start right up and rev just like it should, but with a 5 minute idle it will die, and then I can't get any spark from the spark plug wire to ground. After 15 minutes it will start up and idle till it's warmed up and then die.

I've swapped CDIs and Coils.....thinking its the rotor now...

...any advise or direct me to a DRZ rotor thread. TIA

What say you? For those of you that opted for the Seat Concepts foam and cover what experience can you offer. I can't decide upon the standard foam or the low foam. I would think the low foam might feel like I was sitting on the frame rails if they're one inch shorter. However would the standard foam made me feel higher than the OEM?

I'm 5'10 185 on the scale. Nearly a 31 inch inseam. With the standard Suzuki seat it's a challange to get the old leg over the seat. Mostly I step up on the left peg and swing the leg over. A one inch lower SC seat probably wouldn't make much difference. However sitting on the OEM seat it's a bit of a reach to the ground. The one cheek slide to the side is incorporated at stand still and I'm okay with that. Very slow technical riding for this noob trying to touch the feet down is difficult. My parents were just a bit too short!

I got an SC low seat shortly after getting my DRZ last summer. Because the SC seat is wider, the perceived height seems about the same as the stock seat. 30" inseam.

Which seat?

I'm a similar height/inseam and my dilemma was that the bike will be used for long trips and I was told (by seat concepts) that the standard seat is more comfy than the low seat, as it simply has more foam. A bit of googling however uncovered a fair few people who had the low seat and found it comfy, so I went with the low seat, as I've always found the bike that bit too high and as they say every inch counts

So Adrian have you had a chance to give test out the low seat.

Sorry I don't have the experience with seat concepts, however, I used Fishers out of Idaho. WOW, best $169 I spent on the Z. http://fishersaddlebags.com/ . Took a 240 mile ride last week with a lot of slab and fast seated gravel and while my ass was tired it wasn't sore. Felt more like I spent six hours in a car. Just my .02
