Yeah, I bought both of mine from him, he moved, not sure he is still selling them, let me get his name for you.

Here is the thread. I think the Agrisupply place still sells them?

Question Brake caliper upgrade on the cheap for DRZ 400 motard

Hey gang,

Normally I am in the flea market section but have a technical question need some help with. I have a 2005 DRZ 400SM bike that I am getting ready as my tow bike to take up into the twisty roads wherever they are.

I am about to change the brake line to braided stainless as well as the brake pads to EBC pads. I really would like to swap out the two piston caliper to a four piston caliper. I see on the supermoto sites the various kits you can buy to do this modification but we are talking dollars.

I was wondering if anyone knows of a four piston caliper off a Suzuki, Honda, etc.... that I could buy say salvaged that would bolt up to my Suzuki DRZ-400SM? Any assistance is greatly appreciated

I made a bracket for my tool tube out of a 1/4" thick piece of Starboard Marine Plastic lumber..

It's the size of tool tube that can accommodate a tool roll, or a 32 oz. fuel bottle.

Saw a guy do this with a black nylon cutting board once. Hey, it works.

On the tool tubes. They are available through Tractor Supply Hardware for cheap. You will have to fab your own mounts though.

I Custom designed/made 2 years ago. Hold decent weights and withstand lots of abuse. Painted yellow later on.

You might also need a master cylinder that matches the caliper' s fluid volume requirement.

Had to do that on Harley's that get bigger calipers...

Well, the new-to-me DRZ-SM engine decided to take a crap somewhere in the lower end. The dream was always to send it to SSW once the motor went kablooey, and while it hasn't exploded yet I'd bet that with a few more rides it would (the engine is LOUD and getting louder, sounds like something is hitting, well, something).

So I've been in contact with Eddie and I think that'll be the next stage. I'm disappointed that I won't get to ride it this summer but maybe that's for the best since it gets too $&@!#% hot here. Still, it was more fun than my heavy-ass GS and I was looking forward to offroad and canyon carving.

Oh well. Fingers crossed it'll be done by fall!

244's

pretty good all around, but the front is terrible in mud...other than that i'm not complaining for the price.
