Thanks for the replys everyone, I used the air gun and held the magneto hub by hand and everything workeed fine.

Good stuff. Glad its back up and running. Also glad my loctite fixes held up that well.

Kid should be happy, right? Tell him not to break it again in 100 miles.

I just bought a 2002 DRZ400S with almost 14K miles. It is a little rough but not too bad considering its age. The PO only had it for a year and didn't winterize so it wouldn't even start when I got it. I am just starting to go through the whole bike to get it back in shape. I have been reading all I can about the normal mods and what to watch out for. It doesn't look like and of the previous owners put a manual tensioner on but is there a way to tell if it was at least upgraded to one of the later year automatic tensioners?

You'll want the aftermarket manual chain tensioner its' billet AL with threads protruding out the housing. Check Thumper Talk for everything you wanted to know about a DRZ

Yeah, I ordered one which was "on back order" and it showed up within 2 weeks. Pleasantly surprised when it arrived. Not like his bike is gonna self destruct order it and wait...

fuel economy

on my 400s i seem to be getting about 100km till i hit reserve with the stock tank.that makes it about 33mpg. does that sound right? i thought id get more than that. i am running off road tires though, i don't think my brakes are rubbing and the air filter looks fine. the only mod is a yosh exhaust. so does that sound like normal milage, or could something be up?

I have a DRZ400 now and in the past I had DR650 rigged for long range Adventure Riding.

I would like to get back into the longer distances again. Am I the only one who thinks the DRZ revs it's head off at 100kph (60mph). I find I am always slowing down so the bike is not revving so much. I run 15/47 which to me tends to be bit tall when the going gets tougher but is still not what you would call road gearing. How the 15/41 set up would go I don't know. I would expect it would be useless on tight steep dirt.

The DRZ is a great bike and I love it on the dirt but the faster stuff on bitumen is nowhere near as comfortable as the old DR.

I think my question is 'if I stick with the 400 how long will it take to kill at highway speeds. Do you guys sit on 100kph all day and not worry about the buzzy revs?'

Have you checked to see that your odometer (Trip A or B) is accurate? There is a setting for odometer compensation and when I got my DRz it was way off when using the Trip A or B mileage to compute fuel mileage. I reset it (I don't recall the procedure) and it's agreeing with the main ODO and GPS now. Just a thought.

Cheers,

My Trip A and B also does not match the odometer. Does anyone know how to reset this.

From ThumperTalk forum:

The trip odometer is adjustable:

1. Press the SET TRIP button to reset the trip meter.
2. Hold the SET-TIME/TRIP button for 3 seconds.
3. Use ADJUST buttons to select desired coefficient.
4. Press SET-TIME/TRIP button to finish.

Cheers,

New to me bike

Ok guys, first time post on this thread .

Got me a 06 DRZ400SM with 700 miles on her yesterday, all original no upgrades or downgrades except tires and sprocket changes.

The bike has Pirelli Rallycross MT 21's on frt and rear, sizes are 130/90/17 and a 120/90/17 , these tires are huge , and a 14 53 sprocket set-up.

This thing is finished at 37 mph, topped out .

I'm gonna go back close to stock with the sprockets, maybe a tooth smaller in the frt for my big butt,

My problems is the tires, stock is 120/70 and 140/70 which I have already read they suck,

I want to put a motard or street type or even maybe an 80/20 type back on,



I need some recommendation's on brand's and size's, don't wanna break the bank, cheap to mid priced, I'm not gonna be leaning over doing 80 in a tight S , mostly in town city riding running errands and an occasional mid speed twisty.

Will appreciate all opinions very much, let's hear what ya got.

Thanks
