Recent mods to my 400S

Over the past weekend I did some upgrades to my 2009 400S - figured I would do a show and tell!

First was a wider luggage rack to hold my dry bag that holds my tent and sleeping bag. $6 with of 12x16" aluminium, $10 to get it it bent at 45 degrees at the back, $8 for the 1" hole saw and some stainless fasteners.



Next I added the Trail Tech Tachometer and transfered my Garmin 60Cx with the Touratech Holder from my 1100GS.

Question DRZ 400S and 41T rear sproket

I think I am doing it wrong!

I want to drop my highway RPMs a tad, so I bought a 41T sprocket to replace the 44T sprocket. The logic behind it is say I am riding for a few days on the highway before I get the dirt - would be nice to make that highway cruising a little more relaxed and then spend 10 minutes to swap out the rear cog for the 44T sprocket. Minimal tools are required - 6mm allen and a 12mm wrench plus the wrenches to remove the rear wheel. Oh yeah... Suzuki bolts are quite soft I am finding...

Is issue is now my chain is too long. On the 44T sprocket I have the "snails" at 5 and with the 41T in there I can't adjust it back enough.

If I remove a link pair from the chain, will I be able to still use the 44T sprocket?

I planned a ride to The Grand Canyon for our AZ folks, it's a yearly 2 days event that set the stage for major rocky and versatile terrains to tackle. It's suppose to be 430 miles off-rd but dueto mechanical mishaps here and there I had to shortened the route down to ~ 355 miles.
Taking a fix up break.


My Z sleeps inside tonight.

And to make it a perfect trip we had a chase truck with trailer for any needs or emergencies.


Horses and bikes they don't mix.


Later on that day (day2) and for riding so ferocious on rocky trails try to keep up with Baja racers I got this to deal with:

Renthal Bars Snapped in half I got to keep the shiny side up though and got it to full stop without issues. I got my scares of the day.

Quick fix to get me out to the chase truck. I didn't have the center bar piece on, that would have prevented it from cracking like that.

I salut you from AZ the great Grand Canyon state. Till next time.
Pics from the south rim (hwy 64).

I guess I got to quiet the heavy weight when I hit the gym , I was shocked too that this happened to me. My buddy Mike (an expert Baja racer/owner of motorcycle parts co.) Was with us and suggested that: not having the center bars piece could be a factor why it snapped like this. There's Flex handlebars but they're over $300, no thanks I said.
I might inject Bar buzz kill into the handlebars to even be sure it won't happen again.

I did the same thing. I took out a link in the cahin because I like the lower highway rpm's and still works fine on the fire trails and gravel.

Wanna keep your chain lenght,swap the front sprocket.......

when removing the rear sprocket you want to break the nut on the inside of the wheel loose with a socket. first try it without even using the allen head, If the bolt spins with the nut simply use the allen head to hold it in place while you break the nut free.

x2... but i imagine it was because you removed the center support. They were just 7/8 bars not OS 1-1/8's

Looks like an amazing trip through!

+1

Also make sure you are all the way on the nut with the wrench/socket. These are super soft as well. I stripped one off the first time I swapped out the sprockets.

As for sizing, I removed a couple of links. With the 44 I'm on 0 and with the 41 I'm on about 3.5.
