Not a substitute for ADVrider but still a great place to share info.

Your buddy is in for a surprise! I've never raced one...but I've ridden the DRZ400...and I wasn't too impressed in comparison!

Got military orders to England in '02. Bike ran great when I put it into storage. Flash forward to '07, back in the good 'ole USA, got the bike out of storage and let it sit in my garage until about a month ago. Started with the basic maint, 2 new tires (old ones dry rotted), chain/sproket change (stayed with stock gearing), replaced brake pads/brake fluid, flush fill radiator, check valve clearance (still perfect) and a fresh oil change and filter change. Got around to giving the carb a good cleaning and re-jet since I'm now in Albuquerque NM (5300ft). Realized that I didnt get all the fuel out of the carb last time I shut her down before storage . I stripped the carb down and cleaned for about 2 hours, then tried to re-jet. Then I relized that last time I re-jetted, I must have stripped out a few of the screws. After fighting with the screws for awhile I finally said F-it. Now i've always had problems with the stock carb, could never it get it jetted correctly. I was tired of kicking the thing 10+ times to start and having it flood on me when I tipped over. So I bit the bullet and ordered an Edelbrock last week. Should be here on Monday, so hopefully I will be giving the BRP her first good ride since '02.

Just planning what I need to rebuild and set up my suspension.

Thanks

I went to racetech.com, and they have a calculator that will ask you three or four question, weight, riding stile, and some other shit. It told me, 240lb fat ass, 49 front and 12 rear. I called a couple of places and they told me the same thing.

Steve:

Your fairing was shipped on Monday.. so it should be there any day..

on the custom handle bar switches I have found two sources for nice quality billet bar switches. now affordable? depends.. they run around $50 to $100 but are super trick

Pingel handlebar controls: http://www.pingelonline.com/handlebar_controls.htm

Pro Buttons: http://www.mpsracing.com/products/MPS/Probutton.asp

Looked at Pingel switches before but don't like the chrome.
The MPS look nice and if I can't come up with a solution might go with 2 switches. It is a real pity that there is not a super strong waterproof switch out there with 2 toggle switches and a button all housed in one.

I think I'm the third owner of my '00 BRP. Not sure if the clutch bushing has been replaced. Yesterday while doing some bushwhacking and hammering the clutch the bike started getting a little noisy and stalling on me with the clutch in. I'm also due for an oil change.

Question: is this a bushing symptom or did I just overheat the clutch with old oil?

I haven’t had an issue with the Bushing, I replaced mine with the upgraded OEM part but from what I have heard it doesn’t sound like yours is a FULL BLOWN bushing issue where the bushing seizes on the crank causing you to NOT be able to disengage the clutch? I guess it could be boarderline starting to fail? If you are unsure, its an easy/cheap part and probably wouldn’t hurt just for peace of mind. Doesn’t sound like worn clutch where it slips either so I would check it out and replace it and the staked nut when you have it off. Then you can examine your clutch while its apart.

While I got you, is your head light HID or Halogen?

And did you have to rewind your stator?

If so, did you have to up grade any thing else?

sorry for all the questions

No problem on the questions, thats what the forum is for. The light is the halogen unit. I have a Ricky Stator in the garage for the bike, just haven't installed it yet. Right now it only has the 35w bulb in it, after the Ricky install I'm going to run a 90W or so bulb in it and run the light directly off AC. Right now its all stock except the light unit. Since this light doesn't have a high beam I used the high beam switch to run the KTm radiator fan that I installed.
