Did you take the bolt all the way out, not just loose? try spreading it where it clamps on the splines by putting a prybar or screwdriver in the split of the lever.

At least until today anyway, now maybe every 50 miles. I am adjusting it correctly and the slapping noise will go away but then it comes back.

I guess I am wondering if this is a normal wearing of these items? If so, should I expect to replace the chain and guides only? Will the sprockets have wear too?

Thanks for any advice!
I had the same issue in March so I decided first to replace my old acct to the new acct one (past 2003) before I go ahead and replace the timing chain. I got one from ebay in great condition (06). The noise from the chain is gone, until now no issue so far.

Evening folks. Got all my stuff minus the new rear sprocket and chain. Checked the fit of the tank today, wondering how I'm gonna refit the radiator guards but I'll get it done.

First real job is to get the turn signals all wired up. Hitachi connectors and color coated wire.

The tires will wait another thousand miles.

Wondering how I'm gonna "stuff" all that HID wire. Probably need to shorten them.

strange...and I believe you experienced what I am now. There was about 1/4" between the "staked" nut on the end of the threaded assembly and the locknut for the two years I have had it on the bike and now there is only about half that. And that was distance was adjusted out in the last 200 miles!
What did you wind up buying to fix yours? Chain and guides? Guess that's what I need to do...

TD, mentioned it in an earlier post: Spencer's Seat Mod, he adds a hollow cell foam under the seat foam which extends the range. Along with the wider seat concepts pad and cover, should make this a real LD seat. I have his seat mod on both my ST1100 seats.

"What is Supracor: Supracor is the new material that has replaced Flex Gel and is added to your seat in the "LD" (longer distance)
upgraded modification. It is a "honeycomb" of thermoplastic urethane material that was developed for aerospace and medical
applications where a form fitting, supportive,flexible, breathable, and shock reducing surface is needed."

Lots of LD riders swear by his work. He'll work on about any seat except a Corbin.

Look where I went yesterday

OK... now I am impressed the DRZ can go some pretty cool places - more so than what I would dare to take my BMW 650GS! Yesterday and friend with his Yamaha 230 and I rode to Fraser River outside of Quesnel and took the scenic route. For the record the Heidenau K60 tire on the front has NO lateral grip in the mud and the Mitis E-07 on the back didn't fare much better. In my opinion, the DR needs all the help it can get from the front end. On the vast area of rounded river stones, everything was fine, these are way more "fun" to ride on than European cobblestone! Did all of this on a 41-15 sprocket combo with no problems at all. I think this is the perfect gearing combo for the DRZ - 120km/h all day on the highway and the ability to start on mega steep tracks.

Been running my E for a couple years now on the Tusk dual sport kit from Rocky Mountain. I use the integrated front turn signals in their aluminum hand guards. I ended up buying a cheapo acerbis headlight, but I don't go far at night.

It will take some abuse.



Then a quick wash and you can commute to work the next day.
