Reassemble

Welcome lurkers!

More progress and she's a roller!
  1. Front wheel
    • RMZ450 front hub and rotor
    • Excel 21
  2. Exhaust
  3. Rear brakes functional
  4. Front brakes
    • RMZ450 master cylinder
    • DR650 brake line, was longer and beefier than the RMZ one
    • DR650 brake cylinder, identical to the RMZ one but already had Vapor speedo sensor mounting hole
    • Had to order a M6x12.7 magnet rotor bolt from TrailTech because the DR650 one is M8
    • Still need to bleed
  5. BRP Top clamp/sub mount for Scotts stabilizer
  6. HDB Top clamp
  7. Carb cables
  8. General cable, wire and vent routing. It is a puzzle!

Pastrana FMX. I'm 6-5" so with the FMX, BRP top clamp/submount and ProCycle lowered pegs I can finally stand comfortably.

DRZ400 key switch

The DRZ400 switch has four connectors and the DR650 has six. From the wiring diagrams you can see that the switches do the same thing (even same wire colors) except the DRZ does not have the O/Y & B/W circuit with the resistor. Here is my 100ohm 1/4watt 5% substitute resistor circuit.


This is the key switch I got from ebay, "New Genuine Suzuki Ignition Switch 2000-2011 DRZ400 S DRZ400SM OEM Keys #F99". I replaced the four connector with a six and put the resistor on the switch side of the coupling. Spade connectors and electrical tape is temporary because I wanted to test the switch but don't know how long the pigtail needs to be yet. The switch worked perfect.

I used the same ignition on my 650 and wired it so when in park position it kept power to my GPS and aux plug. This is great so the GPS stays on and doesnt keep wanting to turn off and our intercom stays on, so if we are sitting on the bike waiting we can talk.

Given the lack of tools I have for bending metal, I'm pretty happy with how symmetrical the brackets turned out.
