Atlas, gotta luv the wind screen.

Seriously considering the Tubliss sytem but gonna try sealing the rims first.

Redleger, something here should work too, or instead of, exhaust wrap, probably also available at the auto parts store.

I'm gonna find some black wrap similar. Thanks for the suggestions. Never would have thought of that.

S.O.S (Suzuki Outta Service) I think I lunched my gear box.

I need the help of all the DRZ Guru's!

Background: 2008 DRZ400SM, 20,000 miles. I would say it has had a pampered life other than hauling my 240lb butt around. No wheelies, no clutchless shifts. No rev limiter bumps. Yes, I still managed to have fun on it!

Anyway I was riding home from work, approximately 50 MPH when the bike did a sudden serge. It was accompanied by the sound of metallic crunch. The transmission didn't lock up and it continued on. But it had a new sound to the engine. Something rubbing. I down shifted it to 4 and that was when the neutral light came on. I was close to home so I just putted along on the edge of the road.

As I was pulling up to my driveway I instinctively click down a gear and let out the clutch. That's when the rear wheel locked up and I stopped.

I no longer have a neutral. You can still shift through the gears. And the clutch still appears to be working since I have to use it to push the bike around.

I'm still in denial. A UJM with transmission problems? Impossible! It's not even broken in yet!

Do you have to split the cases to work on the transmission?

Dana.
Here is a picture to invoke sympathy.

HELP ME GET BACK ON THE ROAD, Please.

Sorry mate, I am no DRz guru so I cant help you. I am considering a DRz so I happened on this thread.

That said, from the sounds of it, youre fucked. This sounds remarkably similar to what happens to some DR650s (check the DR650 3rd gear blowup thread). As the engine/transmission is one unit, you will need to completely pull out the motor/trans and split the cases. Not sure what caused it in this case as its different then the DR is.

Best of luck and do wait for some DRz owners to chime in before pulling it apart.

Is anyone running the flatslide carb with an aftermarket exhaust(FMF) and airbox mod?
If so what jets are you running? I don't wanna have to order 3 different jets for trouble shooting. I know I am cheap, but what used to be a 3 dollar part is now 10+ apiece. I have an old Dynojet kit for my drz250 but they are not big enough for these mods. Thanks in advance for any input. I hope to have this thing finished by this weekend so I can get some riding in!

Recipes don't often work particularly well. Make changes based on what you've got and what it is doing.
Where can I order these 3 dollar jets?

Drain the oil in a clean pan and check for debris......

After that, pull the right side engine case and see if the balancer bolt or primary drive gear has come loose. If the trans still shifts thru all 5 gears than chances are the trans may still be ok. You will need a service manual or have decent wrenching skills to accomplish this.

Do your research and you may wish to sign up on Thumpertalk, the DRZ 400 guys there have been thru it all 10 times over and probably know whats wrong and how to fix it while sleeping.

Could possibly be a shifting fork broke.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a new o-ring for the needle and seat on a 2001 DRZ400s? I think the ethanol keeps destroying them and I cant find them individually without buying the whole 50 dollar assembly. It seems like I need one with a flat edge. The ones from NAPA fit as far as the inner diameter, but not the outer diameter.

Also, the bike ran fine last time I started it this spring. Now I have a fully charged battery and it shows no signs of electrical activity. No dash/computer lights, no headlight, no starter click, nothing... Anyone have a clue where to start looking? Im good at everything, but diagnosing electrical problems.

I found a fuse on one of the positive battery terminal wires that was blown, but that didnt change the issue when I put in a new fuse. There was another fuse by the battery, but it was not blown.

Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know for sure it the oem replacement parts for klx400sr(400-A1) are the exact same as drz parts? I notice they are usually cheaper and I am wanting to order a few things like oem cs sprocket, parts behind the cs (think expanded no balls kit), several crush washers/o-rings/filters, steering lock(possibly) ,a couple ignition keys when I figure out the one I need and more than likely some other stuff.

I've been looking at ayers since they seem to have great feedback and cheaper prices but is anyone else as good ,cheaper or give discounts here?

Mikuni needle and seat O-ring

[QUOTE=JJJZJ;22317434]Does anyone know where I can purchase a new o-ring for the needle and seat on a 2001 DRZ400s?

Sudco or jetsrus

I recently bought some from Sudco but can't take a look at my receipt right now to confirm the part number.

Sudco and Jetsrus do not list the Mikuni BSR36 carb but from my research (pg 232 of current Sudco catalog as size reference) there are not too many different sizes of needle and seat O-rings. Mikuni (mikuni part number KV/10) and Keihin (M1 or Keihin 16958-397-7710) are slightly different sizes (KV/10 is 7.5 ID x 1.53 mm, M1 is 9.10 ID x 1.30 mm), but each brand seems to use the same size in almost every one of their carbs.

Without being able to check my receipt I cannot be 100% sure, but I think that the part below is what you are looking for to fit the stock Mikuni carb.

If you had fitted a Keihin FCR carb you would want
