I'll prolly replace the signals at the same time. All suggestions welcome. Or should I buy one of those kits that have all the plastic?
Thanks,

Wheeling Cycle Supply.

Front: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/3/4/1416.shtml Not exactly same as OEM, but I think it gives the DRZ a slightly more modern look

Rear: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/3/4/940.shtml Minor tweaking needed, as it's actually an E fender

They also sell full kits, if you want some spares for stuff you already have: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/3/4/939.shtml

And now with super comfy seat! Threw the new regulator on it and it fired right up too. Sorted!

I may have to build one of these for myself now ...

A few pics from todays ride, did 60+ miles of dirt, and hit 96mph on the way home 15/44 gearing is great for true 50/50 riding.

Renazco works best for me. Confy for many long days.

Seat:- model changes question?

My new to me 2003 DRZS requires a new seat, as the foam has been hacked down to suit a previous owner, who must have been vertically challenged.
The instant answer would be to get it re foamed, however there are so many staples and staple holes I don't see it as being a viable option.
I've been looking on e bay, and don't know if the seats changed between model years, I've seen one or two 2000 DRZ's and later ones, so my question is will an earlier or later saddle fit?

Thanks for taking the time to look at this.
Mark.

For my money I love the Seat Concepts seat on my DRZ. Excellent comfort, quality and they support the site. Check Vendors as they usually will offer ADV inmates some sort of discount.

Thanks for the tip.
On the Renazco, yes I believe they are good, but also pricey from Oz

I have made two. One a 3 inch tube and this one a 4 inch tube. A friend made a 3" x 15" and likes it.
This 4" x 16" incher holds all the tools I need for trailside repairs and I can easily get my hand and arm into it. I have ridden with it over some very rough terrain without it self destructing. Including a fall or two on the left side.

Clutch not working

This is my first post on this forum. I love this place!! Anyways, I recently installed the kick starter on my 2012 DRZ400S. It works great but I now have a problem. My clutch is not working. The clutch lever just flops around and I have to manually push it forward to disengage the clutch. When I pull the lever in all hte way, it does not fully engage the clutch. For example: Kickstand up, put it in gear, attempt to start it up and the bike lunges forward. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Clutch not working

If your cable is on right, guessing that you may not have put your clutch back together right and/or left out a part like the push clutch rod.

Give this link a look over to see if it helps. http://mr-cob.smugmug.com/gallery/13...7032&k=c6mvxxn

New cargo rack

Well I wasn't all that impressed with the factory Suzuki cargo rack so I started looking for a new one and found this one from Tonns fabrication. http://www.tonnsfabrication.com/drz.html The craftsman ship is nice and the welds attaching the plate are on the bottom to keep a clean appearance. It was a little wide at the front were it bolts to the seat but a few clicks on the ratchet strap and that was fixed. This should give me a good place to strap my dry bag.
Stock rack

New rack over the top of the old one, much longer.

Top view installed

Side view, pretty low profile

Rear view

Stock rack on top of the new one.

Just noticed for first time on your pic, the S model must come with temp indicator, my E doesn't

This one is LIKE that one: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/3/4/941.shtml

To get THAT one, you may have to go OEM, or get the full kit: http://www.wheelingcyclesupply.com/shop/3/4/939.shtml
