the only version of a 20x35x10 bearing i have been able to find is a thrust bearing that will not work as a wheel bearing
20x35x9 the only thing that shows is a seal

I suppose you need to get the hubs opened up a bit, from what I recall only Japanese motorcycle companies use "odd" sized bearings, the rest of the world uses "even".

Wanted to ask you guys who have had the loose counter shaft nut problem what you did to fix it and how it's holding up? This is a 04 S with just over 7000 miles and no idea how long it has been finger tight.

From reading I have found the locktite fix and figured I would order this kit from TT. The factory sprocket is starting to hook so I want to replace it while I'm at it. Have you guys had good luck with aftermarket such as suntour or renthal or should I stick with the factory rubber dampened style?

Parts Fiche

hey guys, I'm new to DR-Z's as of last night... I have tried to find an online parts fiche, I have found http://www.partsfish.com/

This doesn't help me with the part number I'm looking for... I need a replacement indicator switch assembly for my 2004 DR-Z 400 E. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks

Had the page open for 04 S parts so see if this works. You can change it to E at the top.

We went and looked at a DRZ-SM this evening and I'm in love. The owner had done the larger IMS tank, 3x3 mod, new better-gripping clutch, heavier fork springs... and racing slicks. He showed pictures of him going offroad with the slicks, mostly desert.

We're ready to pounce, now to just hope it isn't sold out from under us by the weekend when we have time to pick it up.

Looking for SM stock wheels

I have a 2007 S and would like a set of SM wheels just to commute to and from work. If you have a stock set of SM wheels (tires, rotors and sprocket also welcome) please let me know what you have.

Thanks!

That's the same one we're looking at as well. We saw it in person on a DRZ up in Washington, it looks GOOD. No idea how well it lights or the durability so I'm eager for firsthand knowledge.

Here's a pic with new rock guards:



A response from the manufacturer (this is not an endorsement / only informational update on the product)

Yes there is a yellow one on the website ( one of only 2) and we fully intended to continue to offer the Yellow, but unfortunately, we are unable to get that yellow pigment any more. As you have indicated, we switched to the system of offering side decals in various colours so that the fairings looked more 'OEM' with the bikes and the Suzuki yellow is one of them. I don't have a photo of the yellow, but have attached one of the Kawi green so
you can get the idea

I'm sorry but, for further confusion, the Lynx has just been updated with a number of improvements and a slightly new look, but this is not on the website yet. Price, lighting, colour choices etc all remain the same, but there are a number of new options and choices for you to consider and I’ve attached photos of it. The options are as follows :

1) You have a choice of clear or tinted screen

2) As you can see, there is now an aluminum rock guard as an option ( $38) to, or in addition to the Vinyl protectors listed on the website.

3) All HID versions now have a new plug ‘n play’ wiring harness which incorporates two separately fused ‘spurs’ to power accessories. One of these is switched with the ignition and one unswitched. To compliment this, we now offer twin USB charging sockets ( $38) and DIN sockets ( $21) which are plug ‘n play with the harness.

I hope you like the new look and let me know if I can answer any questions. If you place an order on the website, you will see that we do not require payment at that stage. We send a PayPal invoice when the fairing is ready to
ship. An order taken today would ship next Wednesday.
