Any pics of the bike completed? Looks great with the white frame!

Couple of Newbie DRZ Questions

Just picked up a 2005 SM and need to know what would make the front inside brake pad wear 2 to 3 times faster than the outside pad.

Also, anyone care to cut and paste the proper procedure for removing and installing the front wheel on an SM? I just want to make sure I'm doing it in the right order and torque settings.

TIA

I'd like to know more about what trails you rode, and where the DRZ felt good, vs felt too big. Trying to plan a trip for this fall or next spring.

I did Metal Masher, White Rim and many more last spring. The DRZ is fine for all of this but be VERY cautious on Rose Garden Hill its an experts only trail ! best to leave that one to the Young and the Restless

We only really did Fin's and Things in the sand flats rec area. The rest of the riding was limited to dirt roads / 2 track. We didnt run as many hard trails as i would have liked but the company was novices, rental jeeps and buggies.

It did fins and things at race pace without breaking a sweat... unlike me

Klx 400

Sorry for a probably silly question, but can anyone confirm that 2001 Kawasaki KLX 400 engine parts fully fit onto an 2001 DRZ 400 engine.

Specifically I'm interested in gearbox parts, second and third sprocket on the output shaft and the second sprocket on the clutch shaft, looking from the left, also I'll be needing the left "fork" on the output shaft.

Thanks a lot!

M.

I have Mitas E-07s on my BMW 650 GS and they work quite well for me and are priced decently and was thinking of installing these on my DRZ. Question is will a 140/80-18 fit or rather work shall I say work well for the the stuff that I do, which is to and from work (15km each way on pavement) and weekend back dirt road warrior with no "serious" off road stuff? 140 seems quite a jump up from the original 110 - the issue with the 130 is that is only available in 130/80-18 which is shorter than the original tire by just a bit. I would rather get my RPMs down and not up. Perhaps I am splitting hairs too much and should just to the 130/80s?
Just do the 130. I have a 140 on my pig and it rubs on the inner plastic guard. Great tire btw, hooks up pretty good.

The porting or valve size in the DRZ head is not a limiting factor even on a 434cc build.....bigger valves and porting are only beneficial on 462cc or 470cc stroker builds.

Did White Rim in April. Much improved from a decade ago. There's outhouses ! Easy for DRZ. Behind the Rocks is good too. Although at the ledge after the sand on the way up to the Pritchett overlook I dumped the DRZ on myself. Drain the carb, start over. I wanted to do Kane Creek, but my buddy said no. He has done it and said it was really difficult and he's the guy who usually gets us in trouble. Ran into a gang of KTM 450 guys from Montana fixing flats out by Bartlett wash. There's some very nice rides out there. Don't miss the Tusher tunnel. DRZ can take most anything. There are some good posts on here about tire choice and pressure. If you're riding the White Rim have a DOT tire. They give out tickets. D606 works fine. Heavy duty tube at about 17 psi seems to be a good compromise.

Did a whole bunch of trails including White Rim twice, had Maxis IT desert tires on and never saw any one giving out tickets

Did make it up to Tower Arch the long way round up the VERY deep sand climb, tires did great on that but several others tried the same route and did not make it had to turn back down hill.
Maybe I was lucky or highly skilled I may never know

Mylers, sells oversized radiators for $300 a pair..100% garuntee and can rebuild them for something like $15 ea. If you munch them.
