hi all, I have a DRZ 400 E 2002 model. I got it second hand - and the bloke that sold me the bike had put some high compression cams and stuff (i have no idea what it is) To me, it seems that the bike will or cannot start off its own battery power. I must connect my car batter to the bike battery via jumper leads. This allows the bike to fire up - no worries. If i did not do this - i will never be able to start the bike and the battery just drains out. I have changed to two brand new batteries and the problem persists. Once the bike starts for the day it seems to be fine but - I have made a little on/off switch that enables me to turn the low beam OFF - before starting. And I pray - sometimes it starts and sometime no. So, what do you think might be the problem ??? NO - i am not going to cable tie an extra battery on the back.
